Their former livery was much, much more impressive and I think when they have simply changed those former colours into more vibrants they had a well upgraded design.
Anyway I like their new green colour. I dislike the powerless flower on the tail and the colourgradient in the fuselage swing. I do not like either the ugly gradient of Vanguard; PUKE! It makes airlines soo fossy!!

cheap looking with the ever so popular watercolour look on the tail, shame they couldn't use more of the colour on the body instead of boring old white as usual !
still, can't be any worse than their previous scheme - think the '.com' says it all really.

I have to say I preferred the old colours, it is a charter airline, for holidays, thus is entitled to be cheerful, holiday colours, but now a wavy three tone line with a splodge of paint on the tail, come on, where are airline livery designers imagination?
BTW what is it with wavy lines, JMC, Monarch, bmi British Midland all have it, is there bulk discount for them?

I like the LanChile-style cheatline and the air2000 titles but not the .com part
Not quite sure about the tail design, looks like a bit of an afterthought, I know the starfish comes from the First Choice logo, just not sure it's the most effective logo.
One interesting point has been made by CX flyboy in another thread on this;
The whole point of the rebranding was to bring Air 2000 closer into line with the First Choice brand (even though that was the point of the last rebranding which was already very close!) However, unlike the old scheme, the new livery doesn't appear to feature the First Choice name or logo anywhere
