Corsair - Which Livery?

Sun Feb 26, 2006 5:35 am

The title explains it really... I've seen so many different variations in Corsair's livery, which one is the official current one?

AFAIK the current standard livery for them is this:

In the past the livery was fairly standard as well, but with modifications on them to suit the reg. IE: SEX had lips, SEA had waves SUN had (what else) the sun etc.
I prefered their livery prior to the TUI style they have had to adopt now, but theses things happen I guess.
Old standard (I think):

Originally, the following livery were supposed to be the "new" Corsair colorscheme : the "TUI" blue, but still the "traditional" wave on the tail :

But it seems that finally, the "classic" full TUI colors are the official one...

LOVED the old livery.

TF-AME is based at MAN, and loved seeing her in the old colours. Shame when i wentto the airport one day and she had changed to TRAVEL CITY (not TRAVEL ((the other word)) DIRECT colours.
Where does the time go???

The new livery is a complete joke compared to the old one, especially I liked the lips on F-GSEX, the sun on F-GSUN and the waves on F-GSEA.

The people who are responsible for the livery change should be ashamed. The same for the name change, Corsairfly sounds ridiculous (like Hapagfly instead of Hapag-Lloyd).  banghead   banghead   banghead

Separate companies within a group but a common brand trading on behalf of the group.......
