After more than 20 years TAP has still the same livery... What do you think about it?

Like? dislike? like but its time to change?

I really love the actual livery Love. It´s not kinda white fuselage with only tail painted.
Also I think the logo TAP is well designed.

It looks dated. Alitalia needs to revamp its livery as well.

It does look very 80s I think it's about time for a change. The typeface is especially boring.

They need a new management team and stay away from SAGroup. If not, they won´t have money to change it..

I think they need a new one, but perhaps for cost reasons this is not possible.

The TAP livery is a rare example of a 20-year old livery still being OK. I don't think the c/s is that outdated, however TAP does need to at least modernize it. I think since Portugal is a southern, warm country they need a more striking, "summer" look.
Someone said that that got to stay away from SR. I can't understand why TAP joined the alliance (Qualiflyer) in the first palce. To me they just don't fit in it. TAP could be a good addition to a GLOBAL alliance with their decent route network in S. America and flights to some rather exotic African destinations.

Some elements are quite good but some are very outdated. Since a year I'm trying to convince TAP to restyle its corporate identity and so its colourscheme. I think I might to push them harder because more people, like you, are getting convinced that the airline becomes outdated. Thank you for stimulating me.

It does look kind of outdated, and they could use a new livery to brighten up their fleet.

They need to do away with the cheatline. I think they should shift the same colors to the top of the fuselage above the windows, extending from nose-to-tail (think Northwest's top red fuselage). Now, from the windows to the belly of the planes should be gray. "TAP AIR PORTUGAL" should appear in billboard type across the gray lower half of the plane.

Damn, I wish I had Photoshop right about now.

Yeah! probably a livery like Northwest's or Aer lingus' could give the summer look as Dexter said... But only if it would fit well and the red and green dont seem too colourful.
