PHX tells us that it's not a popular airline aka not a good selling subject for them.
If if they can't make money on it, they will stick to releasing Singapore, ANA, JAL, Lufthansa over and over and over again and again!

Somebody will release an Arik Air model, maybe not an A340 but who knows? The livery is colorful and African airliners are hot right now.

I'd expect to see it on the 748i mould

Yes, there are very few liveries for the 748I, so I think you'd be right.

I'd rather see it on an A340-500. It's a model high up on my list.

With so many collectors...there should be market to sell different colours...not everyone in here is starting all over and needing the same models all the time...over and over !!

With AV400 at least in every release there were models that GJ, PHX or any other would never release, since AV400 is not in the market...the " surprise factor" is almost gone...with them, anything could be released and not always the same 10 operators...

If they were trying with new carriers then they will realise that it works !! ...look at TURKISH ...no one else cared before except AV400 and Aeroclassics...and now, all of a sudden PHX can not stop releasing them ...

More Africans : Arik Air, Air Algerie, Royal Air Maroc, Tunis Air, Atlas Blue, Afriquiyah , Libian, Tuninter, Tassili Airlines, Mango, Air Zimbawe, Air Mali, Kenya Airways and so many more... but overall I would like this one:



I hope some (just some) creativity gets to the 1:400 manufacturers !

If it's such a popular model put up the 8k and make it and reap the profits. Problem solved.

maybe PH should release some not popular models with very limited numbers. for sure this will sell like hotcakes.

jus my two cents...
