If GJ really has got the "i've flown on that particular plane" type of collector as target audience aswell, how can they be so arrogant and constantly ignore the generation 40plus of collectors across the pond? I like all kinds of aircraft, old and new, but how can one assume, that people in Europe only fly Lufthansa, AF or KLM when it comes to retro birds? Leaving the YU- stuff aside there is much more than just a handful of major carriers. What about Alitalia, Scandinavian, Sabena, Icelandair, Austrian, Luxair, Condor, Hapag-Lloyd, Turkish Airlines, BA Negus, BA Landor (and i am not talking about 747s), British Midland, Finnair, Aviaco, Aero Lloyd ….
You cannot tell me, that there wouldn't be sufficient demand for a standard airframe (which mould already exists) wearing one of the airline liveries i mentioned above.
