But hey have a look at the garbage around... Looks weird. :x
Mumbai is one of the busiest airports in India. On an average, there are 42 movements per hour.

As for your comment about the garbage around... That's because of the slums which envelope the airport. The local politicians do not want the illegal slums removed because the residents serve as a "vote bank". :(
Himmat has hit the nail on the head! And by the look of it, those slums are there to stay for maybe another 20 years! So that only adds to the hassles of the already overburdened MIAL management!

I am not at all fond of AI's new livery but love the colour combination, and is the ivory a metallic colour?
Shame on PIA chairman, managing director, board of directors, staff, designers and all others related to the new livery, who have contributed to further ruination of this once prestigious airlines image.

Hasn't this a/c been decommissioned and scrapped?

Yes the new AI livery is a pearl beige metallic similar to Virgin, Etihad and V Australia.

^ That's September 2007 photo of VT-EPX. The 1988-built VT-EPX was parted out at Kemble in United Kingdom in 2009.

Here's a photo of the same Boeing 747 from 2009.
