Air India Express tails

Post by himmat01 »

Each AI Express a/c has an unique tail. The motif on both side is also different.

VT-AXM features the interiors of Mysore Palace and Mehrangarh palace on the right and left side of the tail.

Yes, these are very beautiful tails!

The Air India livery with palace windows is one of my all-time favourites and I like the way they apply anti-dazzle paint below the flight deck windows of their B747s, especially the original black anti-dazzle paint which was applied on 747-200s.

PIA should do that for its low cost no frills venture, PIA Express - landmarks makes the coporate livery look cheap. The provincial designs is alot better.

Yes, but no major flag carrier of a nation does this sort of livery - it doesnt really give a coporate look e.g. BA, QF, QR, EK, UA, AA, JAL, and so on... all have one type of livery to represent its country.

No frills ventures such as Frontier and AIExpress is where they are more commonly seen - I dont feel it will suit PIA, but that my personal opnion..

I love the provincial tails of PIA. They required a lot of creative art work whereas the AI Express tails are more of copy and paste jobs.

Ok, lets give a chance to AirBlue and see what they come up with? But I hardly think they'll do anything like this but then who knows... 8)

Jetblue has a few different tails as well but, they all are just patterns/designs in blue and/or different shades of it.

Don't expect anything from PIA Express. That will be no frills in the true sense of the word. Besides the whole things seems to be a temporary thing and its might end up actually living upto its name of PIA EX-press.
