No matter what livery the A330 always looks good.

Along with Dragon Air this has to be one of the most boring schemes in the world.

HORRIBLE.

P.S. Great plane !!

leave it to the frogs to try and make a good plane look bad. The return of the plain plane? Ha, sorry Braniff.

Don't get me wrong. It's ugly. Three colors on an aircraft don't cut it, especially when all three of them occur on the tail- red white and blue. Everything else... gosh, that's worse than ANY of the Delta schemes.

Weird, very weird seeing an AF 332. Imagine a shot of it parked next to company A310, 777, 767 and A340. Air France is sweet  Smile

Still think it just looks weird, can't put my finger on it though, just not use to it maybe, dunno.

They really have a huge variety of aircraft! Any plans for rationlising their fleet?

Before being too critical of Air France's livery, remember they were one of the first (the very first?) to dispense with the cheatline and go all white. I think it's one of the smartest all-white liveries out there, along with Qantas and the billboard Pan Am scheme.

There scheme looks much better on a 747. I also think it does not suit this aircraft, and i cannot pin point why this is!!

A beatiful aircraft, but a boring livery, at least in mya opinion.

Looks like the perfect replacement to the old 310's and 767's, which the crews, the passengers and the maintenance crews were waiting for. Then PTV for everyone on board, lap-top power outlets and the landing-gear camera are always more than welcome!!

MIAspotter, no, it will not fly to MIA. The original plan, however, was to have it fly to MIA on the midnight flight, with a 343 on the afternoon flight. Now, the afternoon flight will stay a 744 and the midnight flight is reduced for the spring schedule. It runs 16Dec-06Jan and then returns permanently on 30Mar. BOS will get the A330. DFW was supposed to as well, but DFW is being discontinued 07Jan02.

Looks nice! Will AF bring that A330 to Toronto anytime soon? Right now AF is bringing their 763's.
I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

Does anyone know what routes they will use them on?
I think the AF livery doesn't suit the 330 like it does for the 744... IMO...
