Re: SilkAir becomes 'Singapore Airlines'

Don't know what will the livery for the 737's look like after they merged with SQ, but I think the livery would be similar to GOL 737's or is it going to be the same as the existing SQ fleet or something else. But new Business Class seats and IFE for B737's is a big improvement.
