Looks pretty nice, I think the titles could be a little larger though.

It does look nice, better than the old livery did on these aircraft and i agree that the titles could have been a bit bigger.

I hope the rest of the TUI group dont get any ideas, A330s are old news roll on 787.

Agree , titles are a little bit small.That was my first comment when i saw it this morning at ORY.Otherwise , not so bad , better looking plane than the 744 with these color scheme.

F-HCAT is at Filton to also receive these new cs.

Farewell old A330 SS cs !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Current A330 sales suggest you're incorrect.



Exceptions confirm the rule.

@BY738

I personally hope WE will get some more A332s for ArkeFly, ThomsonFly and JetairFly as well!

Please no A330's for BY just 787's and 767's don't get me wrong i love all aircraft manufacturers and think that the A330 is one amazing looking aircraft but i'd wouldn't like to see a BY A330 and i'll never be able to refer to BY as TOM i have good memories of BY i spent two long years cleaning BY's also in the middle of the switching over from BY colours and name to TOM.

great aircraft to clean but sometimes when that long haul came in and was a complete s---heap like it was most mornings it used to make me think would these people do the same to their own houses. It would usually be the first aircraft i'd step on in the morning that or the SQ which was always in a much better state and always a joy to clean the toilets on

and right on BY738 just 787's for BY

Though I can't stand those dull light blue TUI colours, the A330 would have looked better with bigger billboard titles. It just looks too disproportionate compared to all other aircraft with TUI colours.

Why looks better on the A332? Precisely because of the titles. They're the right size. What happens is you guys are used to seeing the oversized tittles on the 747  Smile which along with the already lame smiley logo make for one hideous livery.

I loved the normal Corsair tail, unfortunately the fuselage is way too boring in contrast all white, and the scheme never looked as good as it could have.

They've actually improved the scheme with the still bold, but more proportionately sized titles, where this livery now looks halfway decent. It fits the A332 very well. The tail seems a bit darker which helps a bit, but it might just be the shade on this perticular shot

Great angle on that landing, the best IMO for capturing the A332.

Agree totally with you and BY738 both, and also with the majority of the TUI fleet being boeing it would probably be easier to carry that on and keep the fleets the same.

It looks ok, though the smile on the tail looks a lot bigger than the one on the Thomsonfly aircraft.


Make sure they know we're playing the game, but we don't need to play the game because we've already won the game.

I much prefer the 747 livery to the new A330, the big titles make the airlines seem fun and interesting, not a conservative as the rest. Make it bigger corsair!!!

A shame that more and more carriers loose their identity on this way.

The huge titles are bad enough, even worse when followed by .com yuck. Sorry I hate the TUI livery on the 747 because of that, never liked the livery but the oversized titles on the747 just look even uglier from a design point of view.

Good thing they scaled down those titles!

However I wish every individual airline kept it's own brand. No need for all of them to adopt that lame baby blue identity.
