What I learned is, that the private aircraft will be blue, those flying the business class service, as done for KL, LH or LX will remain red.

If they want their planes to blend in with the grey skies, I can say "job well done". Livery looks just as depressing as the grey skies in the background.

Specifically, HB-IEE? I'd read that it just got ETOPS 180 certification.....

Could be they're trying to get a more neutral or subdued effect, for when the a/c are chartered by other governments?

A change in colourscheme wouldn't affect this, surely?

Of course not. Just a note in passing that PrivatAir's 752 was granted ETOPS 180 (if I read the newsbrief accurately.)

Looks good to me... and the differentiation between private and "scheduled" planes makes sense to me!

Major overwater operations require blue planes, or partially blue.

How does it waste money? This aircraft is being added to the fleet so it had to be repainted anyway. I don't think blue paint is more expensive than red.

There also seems to be some logic in differentiating the liveries of their aircraft used on the subcontracted all-business class scheduled services for LH/LX/KL from those with VIP interiors used in their charter operations. The typical customer who can afford to charter a VIP 767, 757 or BBJ may also prefer a more subdued, discreet livery than red.

This looks too much like an ambulance jet, IMO.

The blue one looks dull, red being a lot fresher. Dark blue is THE boring standard in aviation.

The blue looks better for a "private" jet but the red is more related to the Swiss flag and therefor more represenatting Private Airs country.

Yeah, right... that's why Qantas airplanes are blue, same as Hawaiian, Japan Airlines, Air Jamaica and Binter Canarias.

OK, OK, so I'm a bit slow today. Does anyone else have a prolonged New Year's hangover and is seeing too much blue planes?
