It's safe to say that is the best looking 738 I've ever seen

"Autsch" would I say in german. Very ugly and a shame for the 737 and TuiFly. But the ugliness fit to the advertising company.

The yellow just does not go together with the red/white of Deutsche Bahn.

The yellow isn't a great match; but the fuselage design looks fantastic IMO.

I have to admit I like it. Will the 2nd TUIfly logojet for the same company look identical or completly different?

Next week D-ATUC will receive another 'Deutsche Bahn Regio' livery. Slightly different as D-ATUE.

The yellow engines and winglets don't fit, but the rest looks great.

That is one hot looking paint job! Best livery I've seen in a while. Love it, I'd buy a model if there was one.

That looks great. Odd to see an airline promoting another mode of transportation though.

Yep - a little translation for the title on the fuselage 'Im Zug zum Flug' = 'With the train to the plane'

I fully agree! Awful mix of colors! Plus the randomly curved lines just don't resemble a straight train.

No, but they do reflect the fact that railway lines are rarely straight for their entire length. Neither for that matter are air routes.

Aesthetically the yellow may not appeal, but is yellow not the current TUIfly colour? Perhaps it was retained to remind everyone that it is actually a TUIFly aircraft despite promoting Deutsche Bahn?

YES!!! I totally agree, I LOVE it!! seriously would buy a model if one was released. I generally find 737s boring but this is great!!

Quoting Ronaldo747 (Reply 2):

That's true but I am sure TUIfly didn't want to have all of their logos removed, they still want people to know who the airline is. Also, with most logojets I don't think the engines or winglets get repainted. Makes sense too. I mean, the point is not to make an aesthetically pleasing aircraft but to do some advertising - something that this jet does very well.

The yellow really ruins the livery.

ICE isn't in competition with them.

I agree - the yellow TUIfly engines and winglets don't fit to the other colours.
And Aesma it is true : DB (owner of the ICE) is not in competition with TUIfly - both companies even have a co-operation with train-to-plane-services. But TUI is not the only partner for the train services to the flights. They call it Fahren und Fliegen, Zug zum Flug and Rail&Fly.

Fully agree. Apart from the TUIyellow, this striping reflects DB's ICE high speed train livery and looks very cool on aircraft. A new look at cheatlined liveries. They even did not forget to decorate the nose with train lights and the cockpit window accordingly. Nice!

I am sure, Quokka, that the paintjob does not show the railway lines but a train and the black stripe shows the windows of the ICE train, it has nothing to do with tracks. The pic

shows best what the designer was thinking about the paint shop. Sad that on the other pictures it isn't shown that good.

Well it sure is a striking paint scheme. Not sure if I like it but it does look better than the flying smurf paint scheme they usually have.

Ugly or not you have to give the designer credit for successfully making a Boeing look look like a Bombardier train. (ICE is build by bombardier/siemens) Boeing must be chuffed to bits that it looks like something a competitor build. (I know not a real competitor, but still.)

As long as Boeing builds planes and hydrofoils and not trains, they can't lament. On the other hand their "success" with the 787 makes them teary
