Argh what have they done to Britannia! That livery is awful and as if the TUI colourscheme couldn't get any worse they've somehow managed it! Fair enough with the rebrand, but they could have done something far more imaginative and inspiring.
I'll give the 'operated by Britannia' titles on the nose 12 months before that'll be erased aswell.
If I had to chose between either the Thompson liverly or the First Choice liverly, it would have to be the First Choice livery. I think this because at least the First Choice liverly is alot smaller than the ugly Thompson liverly!

Is Thomson a British travel company chartering Britannia's planes? If so, why paint the planes like that? I flew with Britannia on a Star Tour package from OSL-AGA, but the plane had the classic blue Britannia livery.

The old Britannia livery had been around some time so they obviously thought they had to change it. So they change it to the TUI scheme. But that doesn't really fit in with the whole "Britannia" scheme. So to follow on what they did i think it was wise what they did, although i do think they shouldn't have changed at all.
Its the same with Air 2000. It's nearly 2004 now. They had to change name, although once again i wish it had stayed how it was before.
Monarch has done welll with their livery, but will they soon be changing to Avro Airways?

It certainly is Ryanair737,
Monarch have just repainted one of their A300's in the new colourscheme and it looks very smart indeed - gives them a new lease of life in my opinion!
I'll post the link as there are no photos of it on a.net yet
