Check out the new c/s of PrivatAir (B767/HB-JJG): http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/viewphoto.main?LC=nav2&picid=3441

Will their red coloured aircraft be repainted?

What I learned is, that the private aircraft will be blue, those flying the business class service, as done for KL, LH or LX will remain red.

Don't like the blue! If it ain't broke...don't fix it.

If they want their planes to blend in with the grey skies, I can say "job well done". Livery looks just as depressing as the grey skies in the background.

Specifically, HB-IEE? I'd read that it just got ETOPS 180 certification.....

Could be they're trying to get a more neutral or subdued effect, for when the a/c are chartered by other governments?

A change in colourscheme wouldn't affect this, surely?

Of course not. Just a note in passing that PrivatAir's 752 was granted ETOPS 180 (if I read the newsbrief accurately.)

Looks good to me... and the differentiation between private and "scheduled" planes makes sense to me!

Major overwater operations require blue planes, or partially blue.

How does it waste money? This aircraft is being added to the fleet so it had to be repainted anyway. I don't think blue paint is more expensive than red.

There also seems to be some logic in differentiating the liveries of their aircraft used on the subcontracted all-business class scheduled services for LH/LX/KL from those with VIP interiors used in their charter operations. The typical customer who can afford to charter a VIP 767, 757 or BBJ may also prefer a more subdued, discreet livery than red.

The blue one looks dull, red being a lot fresher. Dark blue is THE boring standard in aviation.

The blue looks better for a "private" jet but the red is more related to the Swiss flag and therefor more represenatting Private Airs country.

Yeah, right... that's why Qantas airplanes are blue, same as Hawaiian, Japan Airlines, Air Jamaica and Binter Canarias.

Hmmm...not sure I like this.

PrivatAir is known to be a Swiss airline. The argument that blue is for charter and red is for scheduled operations (operated on behalf of other airlines) is, to my thinking, backward. If PrivatAir is going to operate aircraft on behalf of another airline (and they are dedicated to that airline), then why not paint them in the colors of the airline for whom the flight is operated? The simple answer is that PrivatAir did not want to give up it's identity as a Swiss airline.

The fact that PrivatAir is Swiss is a good thing, since the general perception of anything Swiss is that it is reliable and of high quality. Of course, PrivatAir is a high quality operation. To change the colors of the aircraft, in my opinion, devalues the connection between the airline and its "Swissness". I am unsure this is a wise thing...even though it will not do anything to impact the quality of PrivatAir. That said, perception is 9/10ths of reality...unfortunately.

Time will tell if I am right on this point.

there could be another possibility. if you look at some older LTU jets right now the red color is very faded. privatair handles with premium passengers so an airplane looking old or faded would possibly damage their image...

I think it is a good idea, for them to seperate the fleets for Charter, and those flying for other airlines.
