      An illustration done for a client who flies for them. Recently became Virgin Australia, which I'm confused about, since it's a New Zealand airplane! I can't keep up with Virgin these days...

      Very nice, was always a good scheme

      Things at Virgin changed when the CEO changed, new CEO, (ex Qantas) morphed all the names into one, after he did all the political agreements that were necessary, and there were a lot.
      Changed the name and also just about everything else, the IATA code from DJ to VA amongst other things, fitted business class to all the 737's and A330's, thereby changing it from a Low Cost Carrier to full service airline, part of the deal was they bought the very troubled Tiger Airlines for a staggering $1 from Singapore Airlines, who traded that for a share of the new set up, thereby keeping a LCC, so almost identical to QF with Jetstar.

      The very last red aircraft was repainted about a month ago, so now all white whales

      Nice one Jennings. I am still trying to finish the Virgin Blue version and have this one planned in the future as well. It is very useful as a reference.
