A google image search shows (AFAIK) wings only painted white.
With regard to All Black.. Old school here, but way back then, we were always told that composite fuselages should be white, specially on top surfaces.. Times have changed, no doubt!
Wow and to think Boeing would have problems with little said on here about Airbus having the same thing.
The article says "Qatar Airways has grounded 21 of its 53 Airbus A350s over painting quality issues."
A friend of mine that flies for a Middle East airline (captain 787 and 777) told me that all the fuss that Qatar chairman Baker over alleged paint peeling on his AB32}50s is just posturing and dickering and bickering about which he is infamously famous. There have NOT been any similar claims from any other airline also flying AB350s so his lawsuit against Airbus will be a failure but it is going to cost his airline pretty a penny in very expensive London law firms, unfortunately it is not coming out from his wallet....
In the pic, fuselage is clearly painted all black.
- Pic doesn't reveal whether the wings are painted black on topside. BUT, if they are, wings would get a heck of a solar heat gain, especially while parked during covid lockdown. Could that be a factor causing unusual paint peeling ?
