Ten days ago, on March 3rd, Gulf Air received the first of the four Boeing 777-300ER (VT-JEG) aircraft leased from Jet Airways. Two more aircraft are expected to join the Gulf Air fleet later this month while the fourth one will join in May.
The 312 seat uber-luxurious Jet Airways Boeing’s are well known. See a photo gallery of the interiors here.
Photographer Antony Best caught VT-JEG painted in the Gulf Air livery at London’s Heathrow airport early in the morning of March 12th. Please note the image above is copyright of A.J. Best. Bangalore Aviation has taken permission for its use. Our thanks to Mr. Best. Use this image only after obtaining permission of Mr. Best.
Skyliners has a similar image here. User Allan has an image, but the registration number appears to be doctored. The aircraft still retains its Indian registration VT-JEG.
I find the Gulf Air livery one of the most beautiful in the world. What is your opinion ? Share a comment.
Here is a photo of VT-JEG in Jet Airways livery.
