Default Air France Repaint Schedule

AF introduced the new livery in 2009 and there are still several planes in the old livery. I know the difference in liveries is slight and perhaps they're in no rush to complete all aircraft. Does anyone have any info? I assume it has to do with costs.

Probably waiting for the D-check. Given the cost of a repaint, why doing it twice ?

That's true. But, you'd think all of the aircraft in the old livery would've reached their D checks by now.

According to Air France website, A330s are having a D-check every 12 years. I guess it's pretty much the same for other types. So we're probably going to see the old livery for some time.

Oh ok. Thanks for the info. 12 years seems like a long time. The average is every 6 years.

Seemed pretty long to me too. Looks like there also is a kind of intermediate check every 6 years for the A330, but I don't know if a repaint is scheduled for this one.
