HiFly First Pic Here (New Air Luxor)

Tue Nov 01, 2005 1:20 am

Here's the first pic of HiFly, the newly rebranded company of Portugese carrier Air Luxor!

Air Luxor recently changed the name from Air Luxor to HiFly:

Pretty much is the same to the old Air Luxor livery, but with slight tweaks!

Another boring livery I think!

When will the A330's be painted?

Hi!

Mostly "dejá vu"!!! Same colours, some style! At least WHITE changed colours from YES, but these guys kept almost the same patern, maybe due to saving costs??? DUUUHHHHH!

Basic LCC boring livery but then again, they are a LCC, so no surprises there.
I find TAP's candy wraper, charter livery a lot worse for a flag carrier.

Saw the first A320 (CS-TQG) this morning at Orly.
Even if this livery is borring , maybe the blue color is more clear than the old one of Air Luxor.A very little bit much more looking color scheme than those of Air Luxor!!!!
For your information this first A320 has been painted at Amman by RJ , being ferried from there to ORY two or three days ago.
The first A330 will be painted this coming winter at Manila , by Lufthansa Philippines.

No it looks very cheap and unimposing.

Even some LCC have taste. Hifly has none. As for Tap the new colors are starting to grow on me but its going to take some time for me to adjust completely.

Can't say I particularly like it...

In my opinion, the worst changed part is the tail

Needless to say this livery is disgusting.

At least the Air Luxor tail looked decent and the titles covered up more of that all-white fuselage. This new tail pattern is exactly the same as the European 747s (which was just as boring).
