This cool promotional video uploaded by Virgin Australia shows how they repaint one of their Boeing 737. They do all by hand and, in this case, it took them 11 days, 18 painters, and 260 litres of paint to get the job done. My favourite part is when the paint melts, I could spend hours watching just that.
But not all airlines do this job by hand. This video by Boeing shows that they also use robots to paint their aircraft.
