Quite a good scheme, looks very fresh, love the tail!

Well for starters, I don't even see why Excels livery needed replacing. It isn't even that old is it?
It wasn't that old, no, but I guess there are a few reasons for changing
Excel really seem to be trying to make a fresh start. The last couple of summers they have had some real problems, older aircraft being unreliable, passengers having flight times continually changed, flights being sold then cancelled and customer service soemtimes lacking. They do seem to want to change though, older aircraft are leaving the fleet and there are new A330s on the way which should improve things on long haul. More 738s coming as well.
Also Excel have been sold by the Avion group. All of which will tie in to the above, a fresh start. If you look on the new website there is even a section "The Future". Excel had a great reputation in their first couple of years, I think they want to go back to that.

How original. A predominately white fuselage. I'm surprised other airlines haven't thought of this idea.
While white is very common, in todays market where margins are so so small (especially in the ever declining British charter market), it makes sense, its the cheapest. There are also other issues, white is brilliant at reflecting heat, which when at 33,000ft is very useful and helps take work laod of the air conditioning systems.
Well done Excel, looks very smart!
