Very Nice ! I really love the contrast between the colors of Jetstar Livery.
I assume that dark paint around the cockpit windows of next-gen airbuses are applied against the reflection of sunlight into the cockpit ?
I suppose so, and it seems the new A321neo-LR has it. Given the fact that more and more airline go eurowhite for their liveries it sound like a reasonable thing to do. Otherwise, in case I'm wrong and they are doing it only for some kind of cool-factor they better stop with that damn raccoon mask because it's ugly (to me at least :lol: ).

That is a good looking A321, BB1987. I'm beginning to think those "sunglasses" started to make new aircraft look more sophiaticated, however that is a matter of tase, I suppose.

BTW I think your design for Koutei livery should really set a standard for modern airlines liveries. Not overly too fancy (case and point ETIHAD) and not too blank/empty or copy-paste style like new Quantas or Lufthansa liveries.

That's definitely a kind of praise I didn't expect, even more after doing an A321 since Koutei's livery dos not work that well on long, narrow, planes. It works at best on shorter narrobodies or widebodies, especially the 777 and 747, where the blue belly and airline name balances better the white upper part of the fuselage.
In any case, thanks alot for the praise :D


In the meantime, I have one more:


Koutei Leisure:

Confirming rumors that had been going around for moths, Koutei Koku oficially announced, in December 2018, the creation of a low-cost division under the name Koutei Leisure. The new airline will operate low-fares flights to domestic and international popular holiday sites -other than domestic flights- in order to compete against the may budget airlines sprouting around in Kokoan airports. Service is to start during summer of 2019 with an initial fleet of 11 B-737-800 aircrafts which will be transferred from the mainline fleet. The fleet is ultimately planned to grow to 34 machines -the entire fleet of 737s currently operated by Koutei- as aircrafts will be transferred from the mainline fleet where the A321Neo-LR, expected to enter service in 2020, are being delivered to replace them.
The 737s will be fitted with 6 premium and 168 economy seats, for a total of 174 passengers.

Operated aircrafts:
B-737-800 (2019-on)

Hi ! (and Happy B-Day :D)
I actually expected such a surprise entry after examining the previous Boeing737 or Airbuses(?-can't remember which one) post in which an intention to form such a new subsidiary(?) was first mentioned.

So about the new "division":
Is it just an ordinary separation of holiday destinations "still run by Koutei" from the others or Koutei is completely forming a new subsidiary in order to completely transfer some of the previous touristic destinations ?

In case of the second possibility, why didn't they choose to transfer older Boeings to Koutei Connection and expand its operating lines instead of going through (assumably) lenghty and costly process to completely form a new airline (permissions/registrations etc.) ? I might think that such decision was made to better compete with other domestic/regional low cost airlines (Jump, Skyline, Jetstar Koko etc.)

Anyway, the financial/technical points aside, it is always merrier to have new colorful liveries :D

Good work! These remind me of Allegiant Air, a similar concept that basically gets you from local+regional hubs to Florida.
Unfortunately the service is poor but you get what you pay for!

Once again, your work is incredible and never ceases to amaze!
Happy birthday!

That's a nice livery, not too bright but suitably tropical.

Considering that between 2020 and 2026 both Koutei Koku's 777-200ER and A330-200/-300 fleets will start reaching retirement age, but that at the same time some of those airframes will not get to that point until as late as 2033 or beyond, it is highly possible to see some of them ending up flying with Koutei Leisure for some time before being sold off, stored or scrapped.
So, while I think of what Koutei's future fleet plans will be and in which timeframe will be executed (probably a lot more 787-9 will be purchased), enjoy some more colours:
