They must be having budget reductions on paint?

I quite like the look of it. What is that susposed to be on the tail? It looks like a bit of a "bubbly" design. Well, people DO go scuba diving in the Bahamas....
I am glad that the blue on the engines is also picked up in the the tail. It looks better that way.

Terribly underwhelming, especially compared with some more colourful Caribbean airlines like JM. Though your comment was probably in jest, I suppose budget/time restrictions may very well play a role in the increased prevalence of all-white colour schemes!


Next flight.... who knows.

Even if this c/s is a fake or is true is disgusting. In think is the most embarrassing c/s that an airline could have. Embarrassment

Is only my point of view.

MIASkies: the photos are not fakes. I don't have the time or inclination to create fake photos when I'm buried in legit photo work.

Do some research before you stupidly make false accusations about fakery. The aircraft in the photos is parked on the north side just south of the old Pan Am hangars and another 737 in the same new scheme is in the hangar but buried behind other aircraft. The photos were taken late yesterday afternoon. Sorry to burst your own bubble but that's reality.

Well, guys leave whoever did it alone. They tried. I personally don't like it, but look close. They were on the right track. It just looks like it isn't finished. Yes, it does look bland, but if it had been finished up with a couple colorful stripes/swooshes, I'm sure it would have looked wonderful.  Big thumbs up

Those pictures are not fake. The aircraft was on the Commercial Jet ramp at MIA all last week and was having a C6 registration applied last Thursday. The design may just be a one off but appears to be in line with a promotional campaign. There's a billboard in Broward County on I-95 with a similar design promoting the island.

That looks nothing like the generally elegant/colorful paintschemes of the 70s.

When they paint aircraft all white it makes them look like cattle cars. This is getting ridiculous, I was just looking at the retro-jet Varig 767 and how it got repainted into the current hideous and boring Varig colors, now this? This dose of ugliness is more than what the doctor ordered for today. I gotta admit, it could have been worse had they painted the whola tail blue like every airline is doing now.

Bahamasair livery was a classic and could have looked great with a minor update.

the scheme on the tail is the new logo from the Ministry of Tourism.. When I sat on the Out Island Promotion Board I expressed how ugly it is (www.bahamas.com) compared to the old logo (http://www.boipb.com).

The design is supposed to be a retro-look to outline the islands. If you look at a map of the Bahamas and the new "logo" for the Ministry of Tourism, now SometimesAir.. err BahamasAir, you can see what I'm talking about.

Both Falconair and Segment King are right. The scheme is a promotion of the new logo for the Ministry of Tourism. Not to worry it probably will only be for a few months. If u as me they should keep the engines that colour, and paint the fuselage in regular bahamasair colours; with a picture representing each island. Ex: Eleuthera - Pineapple, Andros - Crab, Inagua - Flamingoes etc....


The tail should be painted a blue like the engines but instead of the flag use the stupid Nuts bubbles. That would be promotion not this stale white colour. Embarrassment



Looks like the fresh wind has gone stale

What the hell is wrong with these people!!!!!!! Have they been talking to the same people who did JAT Airways and Croatia's new liveries?

After JAT and Croatia, I thought it couldn't get any worse. BOY, I was wrong! Remember, you are a caribbean airline people - more paint, more colors to represent. This livery does not one damn thing to showcase who or what the Bahamas are (ir-regardless if the islands are on the tail). They should take into consideration that their planes are like flying billboards, a classy, imaginative livery can/does/will go along way in the public eye. Even if this is a cost-cutting measure that they couldn't avoid, they still could've come up with something better than that crap.

Sad, very sad. I just can't believe it............tear

BR715-A1-30,

The old livery was a representation of the Bahamas national colors. You might want to be a little more sensitive about such things.

I'm quiet sure many members here would flip their lids if someone started flinging insults about their National representations. I know I sure would.


I have recommended your post for deletetion, I hope others will do otherwise.


In my opinion the new livery is a bit lack luster.
