Ludicrous livery

For the first time, I'll be on a NOK Air flight (DD7113, HDY to DMK) in a few hours time.
They do have a rather striking livery.....

They should give discounts to sit in that whole row (or two).

Curious if she was wearing her seatbelt per good procedure? Sorry 3WE, I missed this before posting the same thing :roll: What model of CRJ-2747...the -300, the -700 or the max with the sinks that have hydraulic flow reversals? It seems it was not a CRJ but a B737-700 and the engine was a CFM-56

"Passenger partially sucked out of window" and other injuries.
I wonder whether the passenger was wearing their "seatbelt while seated at all times".
