"This is a mess and shouts out: no money, no style. I know they are known for good quality ad-hoc charters, but as a passenger I would be disturbed to fly "no name"."
Air Atlanta's main business is leasing out their a/c to other airlines, so why should they care about style ?.
As most of their a/c are bought from other airlines, they don't bother to re-paint them as it costs money and most of the time the a/c are only leased out for a few weeks so what's the point in re-painting which in itself takes time meaning the a/c is out of service. As long as it flies safely from A-B, who gives a cr@p what colour it is. A majority of airlines colour schemes are white anyway. If it's a long term lease all they then need to do is apply titles to the aircraft which only take a few hours to stick on and re-paint the tail.
In the case of the 2 aircraft flying for VS
(TF-ATN and TF-ATW
), they are still owned by VS
, just transferred onto Air Atlanta's AOC. These aircraft came straight from VS
service so did not need to be re-painted do thats why they are in full colours.
I would be more "disturbed" to fly on some "named" airlines, rather than on Air Atlanta.
