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
In the meantime, I have one more:
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.
