Default A350... This one is a beauty...

Thank you JC .. though it was short lived, I think despite the Eurowhite scheme this one stands out the nicest. I was lucky enough in March of 2019 to see the Airbus A350 Demo in house colors on the ramp at O R TAMBO Airport doing a sales presentation to SAA..

Anyone feel free to correct pics

Finally !!!

Have this in both version for ages on pre-order and I am very happy to see it on final

This model is a MUST for the whole family as this particular bird took us from and back to FRA on our very last trip with SAA before their cut-down

And by looking at my first picture you’ll easily see for which airline it flew before

PS: The IF-200/B-model version will have a different reg and was supposed to fly for AIR MAURITIUS. Therefore I hope they will style the interior different (but maybe I am here really a little bit too nick picking )

Before i opened the thread, i was thinking to myself "nice! a special livery and possibly for once, not eurowhite!" No special colors, but she looks elegant! The large titles are in a nice spot.

Large titles across the fuselage seem like the next best feature of today's liveries as opposed to liveries of the past which many featured a cheatline and chrome bellies.

Sure it is... with those all-white fuselages there’s muuuuuch space for titles.

The nicest A340-600 was the South African Airways. Yes all Euro white but so elegant. Even more than a very proper Virgin Atlantic.

Crownic was it JC wings or Gemini that made the SAA A346?
