While waiting for an Apple Watch and four 1:400 models all in transit time for a quick look at this weeks liveries.

Vueling also announced its partnership with Pepsi. There is a ton of guff about why they are doing it but you can find that out elsewhere, it’s just another cynical “synergistic marketing ploy” as a critic once said. Anywhere is the 1;400 Vueling anything?
Eastern Airlines announced a return from oblivion that will occur on May 30th, with the inaugural from Miami to BWI. they’re flying an ex-Kenyan 737 but the livery is cool, nice and retro!
Vietnam Airlines also showed its first 787-9. I don’t know why as it hasn’t been painted but you can see the tail. The only airline scheduled to get the A350 and 787 this year.

Well she was officially written off on 22nd Feb 2014 and removed from BA’s register, the seats were removed (she was planned to stay in service for several years) and off went the engines. A year later and this is what finally happened:
