Virgin Atlantic's A330-300s livery paint.

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been covered already. I've just seen a few pictures of Virgin's first A330-300. Are their new 330's not getting the metallic paint the 744s are getting when they get updated to the new livery?

Cheers

S

Yes they are, I believe. It just looks white in most photographs - and, in fact, in the metal except when the sun is directly on it.

Am I right in thinking that they are only getting A330's to cover the late delivery of B787's?

What will they say down the side?

"Four engines good. Two engines better" - George Orwell

"4 engines 4 long-haul; 2 engines for longer haul"

"A333 - half the chance of an engine failure"

do I get a prize from VIR marketing dept?

Nice one, thanks for the replies guys, it must just be the lighting effect in the photos I saw.

Great slogans by the way
