That may be the best looking A330 livery out there, if not it's sure up there. Great looking aircraft.

Bah!

Regardless, it looks amazing I think. The scheme keeps looking better and better on the larger aircraft.

Wow... I don't like it as much as I thought I would!!! I give it a distinct B!!

It looks better on the 757 and A320.

I think it accentuates the oddly-shaped nose of the A330/340.

The old colors looked more majestic on this bird!!!

Oh well, it is certainly better than some other liveries out there on the 330.

Though I do agree with you, I think the angle of which the photo is shot at is also helping that along. There is another photo from today that doesn't seem to show off the awkward nose as much and it looks great!

Well done Carlos, I dont have a break to visit SJU because I was working but thanks for the upload and also Carlos Aleman that took a shot of it. Now I have a visual idea of how it looks.... In my personal opinion I really don't like it too much, the 762's looks better with that sheme.

At least is better than the old dark/blue peeling paint....

It does look decent, but I have other favorites on the A330. Give me a red tail A330 any day.

Everybody says the new livery on this plane is the best blah blah blah, why bother saying that if you know your perceptions will change over time? Same thing goes with new liveries.
