So it's been rumored that Qantas' 10th 787 (VH-ZNJ) will be painted in a different 'special' livery.

Anyone have any ideas on what it may be?

So ZHI is doing the JFK-SYD flight in a few days time.

ZNJ is already in the paint shop, so it really won't be that long until someone takes a sneaky picture

Where's the rumour coming from?
It is confirmed it will be something, just don't know as yet.

It's from the company 'yammer' page, from the info I got passed on. I was told it's like an internal Facebook.

So some possibilities:
- (100th) Birthday suit?
- Indigenous theme?
- UULH theme?
- Australiana theme (in keeping with series naming of the 789s)?

Does QF have a 787 in oneworld livery yet? Does it have to, based on numbers in the fleet?

I only seem to remember an A330 getting about in *o scheme, but thought there was some requirement for one in every 50, 100? from a members fleet to be painted up.

Are QF supporting the AOC? If so, it may have an Olympics motif ahead of Tokyo 2020.

Sunny theme to reflect Project Sunrise, Land of the Rising Sun and that a (Jet)star revolves around it...

Confirming the ZNJ 'special paint job'. Be a tad odd if it was Sunrise-related and then either Sunrise didn't happen or Qantas chose the A350-1000ULR! Maybe it'll be a #QF100 jobbie to begin the rev-up to the 2020 centenary?

Agree. If the marketing machine is going to milk it for all its worth, needs to be something months away.

My presumption will have nothing to do with sunrise as this model is not the focus of the UULH Sunrise project selection process and confuse messaging.
