Maybe the new colors of the Etihad catalog gives us the answer (see addasih’s post; well spotted mate ). I believe the rest of the aircraft is as dark as the catalog on the right hand side – maybe cheers TP

Will MSN166 and MSN170 actually get the same livery? Will MSN166 actually be a special livery and MSN170 the new regular one? Or the opposite way around? Or was it just MSN166 had its tail made before Ey made up their mind for their new livery? And is Mr Hogan sitting down in Abu Dhabi laughing of all of us?

The following tweet suggest it's a special livery, most likely for MSN170 only:
I've finally had time to update my Photoshopped Etihad tail. The proportions might not be correct but it does give a non skewed or cropped representation of the tail. Etihad Tail updated by JKKW, on Flickr
Interesting post I read in A.net about the new livery for EY. Post # 30
Quoting bunumuring (Reply 17):
I can get into BIG trouble if I go beyond what I've already said! And thanks for the kind words!
But consider this. I work for Landor as an Executive Creative Director. I am very close to our "go to" airline ECD. And I have said I think the whole thing looks fantastic. Peter Knapp, the ECD I just referenced (a designer born with wings) may deliver something polarizing, but will NEVER do anything like Iberia. (Unless tortured into it by the client). PK always strives for emotionally evocative design even if some may hate it. He's much rather paint a 777 lavender than Euro White and challenger the "globe, flag, bird, name" trap.. I don't want to put words in his mouth, but I believe, that he believes in the BRAND and conveying that brand via distinctive and differentiated and relevant design.
There is a post somewhere on here that has a photo of an Etihad economy seat with a small back pillow in place. If anyone can recall what post that was, look at the design on that pillow and start connecting dots.
Sorry all. I'd love to shout from a mountain top, but I just can't.
If the day comes - perhaps I can shed some light on things. Love to all, VC10er!
