China Airlines has painted over its name and logo on the wreckage of the passenger jet that caught on fire at Naha Airport, Okinawa on Monday (August 20).

After the accident, photographs and video footage of the jet continued to appear in news reports, and the company apparently painted over the name and logo to limit further damage to its image.

When questioned over the move, an official from the Taiwan-based airline said, “We followed international procedures. We do not have detailed information.”

Is it really necessary for China Airline to do so? Damage has already been done with so many photos and videos taken… their act could further damage their image for trying to cover up the fact. What’s the point?
