Quoting Magyarorszag (Reply 3): I think so too. Maybe is it the light that produce that impression, or the longer fuselage?
Where I come from, 63m is bigger than 58m. Those would be the lengths of the 343 and 332 respectively.
Quoting FlyDreamliner (Reply 4): That's a really nice livery. Suits the A330 a little better than A340, in my opinion
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?

Quoting WINGS (Reply 11): 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.
Or just keep the old colourscheme and do all what you mentioned. That would have been even better. 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.
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.

"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???
