When you touch this link and you scroll downwards you will see the first rough impression of the VG Airlines A330-200. The final and sharp resolution digital picture will be unveiled between X-mas and New Year.

The color looks much darker--is that a change or is it just the monitor I'm using at the moment? Anyway, it looks much less like Qatar's colorscheme that the previous version. The near black top is quite distinctive. I hope VG actually flies--though they should still consider a name change.

The scheme looks great! I think that if you took it to somewhere in the Middle East, though, you would find the temp's getting a little too excessive, with the interiors melting and the avionics crashing. That's why the white tops. Even the oldies with all silver fuselages (polished or painted) get hotter than Hell. I was in AZ at the Pima Air Museum, and everything was "Hellish". Happy Holidays to all.

I am wondering how Dallas Love Field based "Southwest" managed its inflight climate when they flew the Sea World Shamu liveries. Belgium has not a hot climate even most of the supposed VG Airlines desitinations are not too hot for this livery.
I'm aware there are heat reflecting paints like being used on the dark blue painted roofs of US-Airways.

Perhaps you still remember the first VG Airlines livery design; it had a light grey roof, tailfin and engine cowls with graphite grey texts and a white belly.
But as the client's whish was to change the light grey into graphite grey; the whole livery became more sturdy, young and became a more outspoken appeal. The, previous, light grey design, looked "too matured, too old; like an old man". I pointed my client to the heat problem a dark roof colour will occure but to the client's opinion the image and expression is more important. As I did my duty to point my client to the disadvantage I have to respect the client's whish. Honestly speaking I prefer this final "dark-roof" design much more too.
The solution for the heat problem is to turn on the cabin airconditioning to the highest level; I'm aware it will cost VG more fuel.
