China Airlines Update: They Repainted the Plane

Look! They painted the plane! Embarrassed and shamed by the negative media coverage that has been bombarding the brand since the post-landing explosion yesterday, China Airlines hired some painters to paint over the plane’s logo to make it a generic white aircraft. I don’t know why it makes a difference, since pics of the original wreckage are all over the news already anyway. But whatever. The airline’s official stance is this: "We followed international procedures. We do not have detailed information."

Smart.

  1. Considering China Airlines’ miserable safety record over the past decade or so, they really ought to paint over the name & logo BEFORE the planes take off.
