It is often done as part of maintenance. One level of check (C? D?) requires stripping the paint so it must be redone anyway.
That is a Boeing thing... Airbus doesn't do D checks, paint stripping is not required. Repaint is normally done every 4 to 5 years. Sometimes more, sometimes less...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi - Impact on Boeing 737 MAX

On the other hand... Airbusses are 100% fly-by-wire. The 737 isn't. So where an airbus would have to rely on more inputs and computers to safeguard maximum redundancy, the 737 can fly totally mechanical should the need arise. The question is where th computerized envelope protections fit in. They ce...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi - Impact on Boeing 737 MAX

I don't understand how Boeing's chief engineering office has validated this envelope protection system with only 2 AOA sensor's relying on one input to validate exceedance. At contrario, Airbus is using three sensors which required correlation between two of them to validate inputs to Flight contro...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Lets leave it at that. I read your reply, and can only conclude that your reasoing is based on assumptions. That is fine. But not all of them are accurate. Also, if you want to compare delta to SN, feel free to do so. But stay reaistic, they are apples an pears. The fastest ways to go out of busines...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Fact is a 9 years old airplane will always (most likely) look better than a 25 years old one. There is retrofit and retrofit. When SN says it retrofits a plane it's minimalist to say the least. The last years (2005-2006 / 2012-2013) it was only removing old seats for new ones, almost the same lavat...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I can not compare with the new one but in Y the interior of Singapore Airline (SFX) was cleaner than the Y in SN plane's.... I think that they changed the seats but not all the interior for example I was seated on 37A ( it was a 200)in my last flight and the carpet was loose on my feet it was dirty...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

The interior of OO-SFC is far from being a hard punishment: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/7815191 Basically the regional products of Asian carriers is up the long-haul product standards of many European carriers. This one is much more attractive than what EW proposes on the A340s. Now, I know it'...

Also, SFB is planned to transfer to SN at the end of the year. Including a repaint, it will however not get the new interior for the time being.

Re: Introduction of Brussels Airlines' fifth Belgian Icon OO-SND: Aerosmurf #SNSmurfs

Why did they not follow the original drawing? Somebody know? My best guess would be to have a white nosecoin. As they had a lot of issues with the parking guidance on the other belgian icons. I don't think they went far from the original design on the left side at all. They put Smurfette in the dri...

Re: Pegasus Airlines off the runway at Trabzon; Boeing 737-82R registered TC-CPF

Damage to the belly doesn't seem to bee too bad. I anticipated worse... But pictures do not show enough detail to see wrinkling and or buckling of the fuselage. That will help indicate how far of it will be from a hull loss. Though the right gear and pylon being ripped off, are not a good sign. But ...

Yes indeed, looking more and more like a write-off. According to wikipedia, one engine broke off to drop into the water - a severe loss, economically. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegasus_Airlines_Flight_8622 - but that article has been nominated for deletion. There's indeed an engine broken off, ...

In any case they would need new interiors, etc. So entrance in...
