Somebody mentioned to me that there is one Swissair A330 with a blue belly. Is that true and if so do you know which one it is?

Cheers,
Felix

It's color and I hope they replace all of them with the blue belly.

they should stick to their own ID rather then promote a loser alliance and force other carriers to wear the stupid blue bellies too, I cant even picture how ugly theyll look on Air Portugal also why does the alliance have the worst airlines for members, have Turkish airlines quit them Confused

I think the blue bellies look pretty good. The standard red-white-grey color scheme is boring is hell. The only ones worse are Lufthansa and Air France Whitewash colors.

Why can't any European airline come up with something nice, like Wanula Dreaming, or Raffles, etc. British Airways had an interesting thing going but that didn't last long  Sad.

All of the above are Non-European. Are we Europeans so boring?

News for you! SR have cancelled the Blue belly idea, only a few aircraft from their and Sabena's fleet are now sporting the look, no other aircraft will be painted in that livery and other members also do not have to repaint their planes in the Qualiflyer scheme now Smile

I actually liked the blue bellies, but I also liked the grey bellies, anything from Swissair is good.

I flew last week ZRH-LHR on a MD-11 with blue belly. I more like the grey belly, the Swissair color is red, not blue.

I have a friend that created a nice swissair scheme if you want to see it e-mail me. Its all red with thin white lines on the bottom of decreasing width and big white swissair white cross and red engines with white cross on them.
