All you Eurowhite haters tired of that drab white on aeroplanes got your wish.

Eurowhite schemes will now be replaced with...Eurotrash schemes!

    HA!

    I so thought this post was going somewhere else when I read the topic line...phew!

    But to be a true Eurotrash plane, won't it need to have a Dunhill Light cigarette dangling from it's nosecone, and when it parks, have it's wheels chocked with sockless Gucci loafers? And are all carry-ons restricted to those silly man-purses and leather cell-phone cases?

    If I didn't know any better, I'd say that the airplane was at least smiling at us, if not laughing at us!!!

    It may jus be me - but i fink this may be a fake? Yeah probably not a fake but look closely at the writing can you see the white behind some of the letters? And the tail logo too? Yeah im probably wrong , but the planes soooo paralell with the horizon - could of easily been drawn over! But i am probably wrong - unfortunately as its sooo horrible !

    No!!!
    We did not asked for something like that, for sure!!!
    This time I kinda like the eurothrash thing.  Smile

    Btw: Check out the old HF (Hapag-Lloyd) livery. It was non-white and looked good! Wish they´d keep it!

    The photographer points out that Hapag-Lloyd is written on the other side of the aircraft.

    btw why has KLM as the royal dutch flag carrier blue as it's color while orange is holland's "national" color ?

    Oh, and of course the hapag lloyd one isn't a fake, they announced some time ago that some planes will fly with such livery in the future  Smile

    i was a f/a for hapag-lloyd this summer.
    I loved the old hapag colours, and as i see in your comments, we all got something in common:

    These new colours are the most ugliest i´ve ever seen!!!!! The logo looks like a joke and they wanted to do it better then they did:

    the woman on the plane would have looked nice i think....

    and i can tell you: ALL hapag-lloyd plames will be soon painted like this one!

    Britannia is doing the same with their planes:

    The livery pictured in the starter thread of this topic looks, to me, like a badly botched KLM wannabe look-alike scheme; if the color of the titles and logo was intended to clash with the overall colors, the designer was totally successful.

    Don't automatically assume that a plane is ugly because it is blue. This scheme is one of the best flying today:

    I may hate all white aircraft, but Hapag Lloyd/ Britannia's new scheme is hideous.

    I didn't particularly like the Hapag scheme, but I think it's a disgrace they ditch the very stilish Britannia Airways colourscheme for this tacky scheme.


    nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
