A Britannia 763 came to my airport about two weeks ago sporting their new livery, and I have one question.

What's that thing on its tail in red? It looks like a smiley face that's missing an eye.

Britannia is part of the TUI travel group, which is owned by Preussag, a german company with lots of activities in the holiday market.
The smiley face is the logo of TUI and can also be seen on planes of Hapag Lloyd and NEOS (Italian charter airline)

Ahhh, the wonderful "world of TUI" livery!!

Must say I was very dismissive at first but flew Yankee Echo (763) last week and it doesn't look too bad. Better than on the 75s anyway...

I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
