Agree, it feels like they are simple decals stick onto a white frame.

Not sure how this new livery will enhance the passenger experience (our mind) or their profit (which is more important in their mind).

No actually - it was part of a Pepsi brand relaunch campaign in 1996.

It's a real Air France Concorde. Pepsi chartered it for a couple of weeks in the 90s to launch their new branding.

It's the real thing... Yes, pun intended.

Ok, my point still stands, when will airlines stoop down to new low and actively sell out their livery for corporate sponsorship (i.e., more revenue stream...)

I am sure many LCCs have thought about this, but presumably concluded that using their liveries to advertise their own brands is more lucrative.

Is it true... and I really can't remember where I had read this previously... that white is the lightest colour for plane liveries? Other colours weigh down the plane, thus consume more fuel... that's why most airlines paint their planes white.

Exceptions are the likes of Scoot and Etihad.

White paint is as much a color paint as others. The only way to not weight down a plane is to just put a protective coating on the livery (not paint).

Yep, this is exactly my thoughts too. Feels like a placeholder livery that you might find on a short term lease.

As a designer by trade myself, this is something I encounter everyday - Good, clean, minimalist design, while seemingly effortless looking in its final appearance, is actually deceptively difficult to pull off well. Especially across multiple vastly different platforms.

When done right, it is glorious

When not, clumsy and boring

is anybody privy to the repainting schedule? any idea how long until complete and how many/month will be repainted?

and whether the cargo fleet will also get the new livery?

Repainting will take about 4-5 years - usually in sync with heavy maintenance checks.

Old livery aircraft were still flying in 2000, some 4-5 years after the last change

As a comparison Qantas still has a number of aircraft flying with the old Roo (new stylized Roo and Qantas font were launched in July 2007)

This a 744 - cargo, most likely - as there are four sets of undercarriage wheels...
