    Perhaps the designer has lost his ruler?

    Not hugely appealing, especially that silly logo on the vertical fin.

    Why would you spend a lot of money on a ground-breaking new aircraft and then not invest in a more appealing paint job?

    It may not be ground breaking, but it still fits the whole charter/holiday airline image.

    Atleast they didn't go all JAL or Finnair on us!

    I think that's quite nice, better than the two previous schemes IMO.
    Props are best!

    Is that Thomsons new livery or is it a new TUI livery?

    Probably the latter.
    Apparently a 767 is getting painted as we speak.

    Some Jet4You 737's have gone to..I think it's Arkefly, trying to remember off the top of my head, but retained their green livery. This had made me wonder if a new livery was about to be announced for the group and the reason they'd not been repainted yet.

    If it is group wide I wonder if the green and yellow versions would be retained.

    G-OBYG in full new livery. The first to receive it. I think it looks better on the 787. There is a picture of the 767 at Manchester on www.skyliner-aviation.de

    I think they screwed up the curves at the back. Not quite as fluid as they could be.

    A 767 was rolled out of the old BA hangar at MAN today inthis livery.

    Thumbs down

    Did they run out of the light blue colour paint, as that darker blue bit towards the rear really doesn't do it justice. If it were all one colour I think I would look on it a bit more favourably, but that darker blue bit just appears to be "lost" imho.

    Ohherr the front part over the nose reminds me of BMI, the rest well it's a bit unfinisged, they could of painted those swirly bits on the tail and engines to make it flow.

    Still not the old Britannia iconic look is it?.

    I would hope so, not that I like the livery especially.

    When a nice new aircraft type arrives, it is usually a very good time for a corporate makeover. I just hope that BA comes up with something new when their A380's and Dreamliners appear.
