Ugly titles!

It was great and stylish the way it was:

Hopefully they will realize it and redo the titles on the A319. It should be easy.

I agree, it's pretty ugly.

The titles on their A320s are much better.

Any ideas where the A319 came from?

Good to see Armavia growing...

It says cn 2277 which means ex-Independence Air.

They say they will be adding frequencies for the summer season including BEY.

The first A319 ferried through OSL Wednesday. The aircraft has registration EK-32011 - ex N803BR.
ACARS caught it as DH3201 .....

319 font seems a bit out of scale, but very similar. I like them both. Those ex-Independence birds are selling like hot cakes.

You really scared me at first!
C'mon, is not that bad.They kept the best part of the livery (in my opinion), the Orange color.
I don't think is a bad change.

Good to hear! Hopefully during the daytime so you can photograph it.  Smile

They have a very agressive pricing policy and tend to kill competition by offering cheaper tickets. Are they really allowed to do that?

They say they'll be adding another A319 and possibly a single A330 to replace the IL86 they have. But I don't know if there are any available A330s on the market.

So many airlines fly here at night. I can only hope for long delays so that I can capture a few new ones, like the Turkish and LH planes I once did a few months ago. Wishful thinking  Smile

Best regards.

The 319 titles looks way to bland. As if they were dreamt up in MS Paint.

Look closely... have they also abandoned the "shiny-effect" orange paint for the A319? It looks like plain in comparison to the A320 colours...

possibly not exactly "stylish" but not ugly either. Just large enough for short-sighted people to read, and also good when being somewhere in the approach !

I agree. The titles were stylish and modern on the 320, but look like a cheap charter carrier on the 319, and the flags are a little tasteless. Did they maintain DH's old seats in Coach?


What now?

Did Armavia leave the expensive mica paint (in their previous livery) for cheaper plain paint? I like the orange in combination with blue and white. What I do not understand is that they have used red instead of orange for the Russian "Armavia" subtitles (well I understand it because this colour is also in their national flag) but it makes it all too busy... The proportion of the fuselage titles is not in relation anymore to the rear design, pitty.

The latest design of Armavia:

I can understand the flag on the engine cowlings: it's a matter of pride. But the flag is depicted too huge, it's not sophisticated enough.

TK787, First one that I know of from the IDE batch that went to MEX instead of CWF (different leasing company)...All 8 of the CWF ones are accounted for (3 Air Berlin, 3 Izmir, 2 Air Madrid).

Looks better on the old, definitely. We'll never know why some fools with no taste insist in changing the perfectly good liveries.

Just a modest change in liveries. I agree that the 320 looks better, but the 319 is in no way ugly either.

I believe this is armenian, not cyrillic. I would like to see the armenian titles as the big ones, with smaller english ones!

Yes it is Armenian and the proportion of both the English and Armenian was better as well.

This is the ugliest title-ing on an Airbus. -To me- this is an ungainly and stubby looking plane to begin with - but to have such enormous titles makes it look even more so. The livery overall is pretty nice, but those titles should be WAY smaller.

That font looks as though they have stretched sideways to make it fit (rather than making it proportional) and from a graphic designer's point of view that is a BIG no-no.

And that picture looks as tough it is coming from a flight simulator program.

Here's some new info. I just read a long interview with Armavia's owner, Mikhael Bagdassarov.

The 2nd A319 will be delivered in May.
So the Armavia fleet will have:

3 A320s
2 A319s
2 Yak-42s
1 IL86
1 Yak-40

The Yak-42s are not being replaced and the A319s are just a fleet expansion.

They have also just ordered an A320 direct from Airbus. No delivery date is mentioned.

Also, no word of any A330 plans which is logical.
