CS-TOD has become the first A340-300 in TAP's fleet to be painted in their new livery!

Personally I think the A330-200 looks better in the TAP livery.

I can't see anything wrong with it, it looks really good on the A340 as it does on all their other arcraft.

The TAP livery is one of my favourites.

I think so too. Maybe is it the light that produce that impression, or the longer fuselage? Nevertheless, I still think that this C/S isn't very much imaginative.

That's a really nice livery. Suits the A330 a little better than A340, in my opinion.

Where I come from, 63m is bigger than 58m. Those would be the lengths of the 343 and 332 respectively.

I fail to see how. It is the same bloody livery. The colours appear in only two places, the forward fuselage, and the tail, which happen to be identical on both aircraft. Where the aircraft differ, number of engines and nacelles, there is no colour....nothing that would make one appear better than the other....unless you are commenting on the design of the actual aircraft itself?
Does this group prefer the 332 over the 343 and has allowed this preference to enter in their opinion of TAP's new colours?

That is the most stupid and uninspired livery I've seen in a long time. It looks like a partially blind 5 year old designed it. Horrible.

I also think the twin looks better than the quad. If TP had decided to paint the engine cowlings, the A343 would surely look awesome!


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Yes, I think the new liverly is pretty much a big nothing. Would perhaps look best on an ATR or something of that size. Too much white, and not particularly enamored of the rest.

Well I too have to agree with some remarks above. Tap should have least introduced some additional improvements to this livery. Such as painting the cowlings and the winglets.

With time this new livery is starting to grow more on me.

Or just keep the old colourscheme and do all what you mentioned. That would have been even better. Big grin I personally can't stand the new colours, they're just plain boring. The old colours of Air Portugal were the best of them all. It's a shame the A332s won't be painted in them.  Sad

They both look the same. Except for the four hairdryers on the A343 and the stretched fuselage length compared with the Pratt powered A332, it looks pretty much the same. Just imagine an A333 in those colours and apart from the engines, it would be the exact same thing.

I like the new livery but I agree with WINGS, cowlings and winglets should have been painted with the new colours too.

Veredict: TAPs new livery is terrible.

Both A340 and A330 look awful in this crap "gummi bear livery". Talk about a change that wasn't needed. Enjoy the sights of the much more elegant older livery while it lasts boys and girls!

Hi!

"Terrible", "Hideous", "Ugly", "Too much white", etc. etc....people just use non-sense terms but don't give a real justification....do you realise that MAYBE white colour have a purpose to be there??? Have you ever understood that white colour can ACTUALLY reflects the sun and lower heat waves??? Why there are so many white cars in the Middle East???? Why the arabs wear white???? Why? Why? What is TAP livery different than SWISS, Delta, Continental, Air France, Lufthansa???

Nah, it's not that complex. It's just bad taste  Smile
There are plenty of simple, white fuselage liveries out there that are significantly better than TAP's new one. Some of them you listed yourself.

It does take special talent to screw up an Euro-white livery, and for that I have to give them credit  rotfl 

To add insult to injury, they picked lime green which is definitely not the color that's in the flag.

Some friends saw CS-TOD yesterday night at GIG and tell me that it's really amazing at night. CS-TOD took 260 pax to GIG and 259 to LIS yesterday.

I expect they took some pics !

I personally love the livery (seems that on little planes it's better)!
