TG's New C/s Revealed

Sat Aug 07, 2004 12:27 am

I came across a local newspaper "Prachachat Thurakij". It shown a new image of TG's c/s which will be introduced in March 2005. I scanned it and made some retouch on the background. You can see it at http://www.geocities.com/pichai108/TG.html

It looks modern but resemble to UPS's new c/s!!!  Sad

I am not sure whether it is final or not because TG has not yet made the official announcement.

My goodness ! Why fix it if it ain't broke... the current livery is one of the most colourful liveries around. A little 70s but no problem as it fits, the purple and gold really symbolizes the colourful beauty of Thailand for me.

I'm sorry but I don't believe this to be real.

If Thai were going to release a new livery I'm sure it would be a much more side on view, and perhaps on a much more realistic looking airplane.

Sorry to be sceptical.....

Looks likes somebody's sim-fantasy c/s to me. I'm pretty sure any official (or even unofficial) pic of the new livery would attempt to show a side-on view.

I certainly hope that those colors are not real, or are not final. Their current scheme is so much better.

I don`t believe it`s the final livery, but if I look at the last Thai livery topic and the description of the livery it could be true. But they mentioned that the Orchidee is also placed on the fuselage. I hope they will add more purple or please keep the current modern livery!

You know they were going to change the Thai livery eventually, it was too nice. Why the great liveries are being changed? who knows! Kids in management positions with tastes similar to Concordeboy's might be responsible.

On the other hand, that design isn't all that bad.. please, I thought it was gonna be worse! It'll probably be an all white fuselage with purple engines and tail. If not that, then some disgusting wavy style. If they are ditching such a good livery, they'll get a new image which is as cheap as possible.

I hope that TG does not decide to use this terrible set of colors for their beautiful planes. Those are some ugly colors. I do not think they should spend time or money to re paint. Their planes look nice the way they are now.

lol first time I've seen a fantasy livery that I like but nah.. still too white. I still don't know why there's the madness to change liveries that have some kind of cheatlines along the length of the fuselage. It's not like people see that and say "oh look i'ts an older paintscheme!!" or anything. I'm sick of this whitish fashion trend already man

Next perfect livery in the region to go will be Singapore's, watch. In my opinion possible the world's best livery for a major airline. I say all who dont want this to happen bombard TGs and SIAs CEOs with E-mails and see if they listen Big grin

No way! Its hideous. To quote a catchprase "You cannot be serious"
Thai's current scheme is fine - Maybe not in the top ten but NO WAY as bad as Concordeboy seems to believe - Theres MANY worse out there as I am sure you have noticed! If theres to be a new look they should update the current livery into the 21st Century.

The current Thai scheme is one of Landor's most successful achievements. If I'm not mistaken, it won several design and branding awards when introduced.

While not my favorite, it's unique and beautiful. You can't say that about many of the new ones!

I think the color is too dark. I hope they go for the lighter magenta they use in present c/s than that dark blue. And if this is the final one (but not a good choice), at least I'm happy they keep the logo though.

I would love to see Thai retain the exact colours they have now, but redesign it to give it a more modern appeal. Add a little bit more gold (gold cheatline running from the front to the back of the fuselage or tailfin) to it and we can have a very nice livery. I also agree with the others, Thai's current livery is very nice and not much should be changed to it if Thai wants to update their current livery.

If they must change their c/s, not that they should, why not go for a variation of the Nok Air livery? Personally I think Thai should leave well alone!

that side on view looks nice, but I'd rather see other airlines with all white fuselages or something get this livery, not Thai. Landor came up with Thai's current look back when they could design decent liveries... and that was a looong time ago, -note emphasis in the past.

I personally think another airline that destroyed their livery was Air Pacific they used to have beautiful colorful aircraft, then they went white and now it's only the tail with different colors.. in a layout that still looks like crap, really talk about lack of imagination.

Do you think that the same could happen with Thai like with Air India after they changed the unique colors? Less pax?...and return to the old livery. I don`t like the new one.

Yeah but the packaging has changed hasn't it? Airlines need to change their packaging as well so to speak.
