Good pics....wish I could get to those viewing areas at the Airport.
The Jetstar Airbus advertising Seaworld, good how the shark blends in with the "lines" of the aircraft.

From memory, the following planes have external advertising:

Jetstar
VH-QPP [A320] : Titans
VH-QPQ [A320] : Seaworld

Qantas Link
VH-QOH [Dash 8] : Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer???

Qantas
VH-VXB [737] : Aboriginal 'Yananyi Dreaming'
VH-OEJ [747] : Aboriginal 'Wunala Dreaming'

Virgin Blue
VH-VBY [737] : VB's 50th Aircraft
VH-VOI [737] (withdrawn) : Gillette
VH-VOJ [737] (withdrawn) : Head to Queensland

There have been others, and i'm sure there are others around Australia that I haven't seen/pictured in Brisbane.

Well done, I had to settle for loitering around a railway station with a camera and notebook.

For those in Brisbane or potential visitors to Brisbane that aren't aware of where the airport lookout is, here is a google map image, with the red 'A' being the lookout. The lookout is open from 6am to 6pm daily! Free of charge, just locked at night. The downside is that there are no facilities there though like toilets or take-away shop.

Great pics mate, a well set-up and finely tuned camera with a good photographer.

If you see a Concorde sitting there, feel free to introduce yourself (why would I go to long-term parking when I can wait there??)

Oh yeah, some food for thought; the 737's entire cabin is only about 30mm bigger than just the engine cowls on the 777!

And that's a great shot of the 777 too matey, again well done.

Jetstar VH-VQH A320 - Also has advertising - GO ROOS! decals fitted.

The Jestar shark aircraft has a Dolphin on the other side that looks a bit shabby now.........
Starting to peel off...

Has done a pretty good job thus far considering the conditions it encounters!!!, afterall its only a big sticker, with millions of holes in it similar to bus window decals but much smaller holes and lots more of them!!

Ah yes, I forgot about that one - I got this pic of her at SYD airport back in December 2008.

True that. Same flight, just repalced with a B763. Singapore also making cuts, all of their 3 return flights per day cut from a B772 to a A333 :( one less 777 i get to hear from home at night :(

And the really funny thing? Singapore replacing the 777 with an A330 was spun as good thing in the Adelaide Advertiser. The bozos obviously don't know their aircraft.

Well, I can't see how having a brand new aircraft with the brand new A380 style entertainment product ISN'T an improvement over a louder aircraft about 6 years old.\


Just to further prove my point, I decided to add images.

Image
Boeing 777-212ER, Around 6 years old, Old economy, looking very drab.

Image
Airbus A330-343E on its Inaugural Flight (CGK-SIN) Includes iPod connectivity.

A shame the A330 photo displays the Premium economy cabin yet the 777 shows the cattle class VC special cabin.\
NOT A FAIR COMPARISON, even though i prefer the A330

The A330 shows economy, That image is from the back of the plane, Hence the seats going from 2-3-2 into 2-4-2

Seatmaps!

I've worked on the 330s and definitely way better plane to work in than the 777s; it's more user friendly in terms of the designs and space utilisation.

Problem is, the new SQ seats (or indeed most of the new economy seats) are s@#$ to sit on for anything longer than about 2 hours. The older seats might look dorky but are 1000% more comfortable.

You wouldn't happen to know the manufacturing company on either of those, would you?

Isn't that Virgin 737 an 800, not a 700.

Seats are most likely to be recaro made if they're cheap; but there are other suppliers too.

This is very Correct. -700's on have the one Emergency Exit above the Wing, Plus when you do a rego search of VH-VBQ it says 737-700.
