Remarks:"Luni" her & VT-EVW "Cauvery" are the only two odd A310's in AI's Fleet with an all-white fuselage. Personally speaking, i like em that way. She's named after the river Luni which originates in Pushkar Valley rising in the western Aravalli Range located in the western part of the State of Rajasthan where she's also known as "Sagarmati", and in other parts as "Lavanavari" meaning "Salt River" in Sanskrit. The river ends in the Rann of Kutch located in the State of Gujarat.
