Tuifly.com In The UK

Wed Feb 07, 2007 2:10 am

Hi
Does anybody know when the first tuifly.com aircraft are expected to be painted from thomsonfly.com? I've heard two years from somewhere - is that right?
With Tui trying to make baby blue what easyjet done for orange, why on earth have they gone yellow all of a sudden?

I reckon their aim is to have one airline brand (TUIfly.com), but with each country having its own fuselage colour...

Germany = Yellow
Morocco = Green
UK = blue

... only a thought!

It's cause of a change. They wanted to plug HLX and Hapagfly together in Germany now they leave them seperated but under one hood (tuifly.com) .
They just operate two different kinds of route service:
- holiday: which has the old normal hapagfly service
- "linie" : which has the HLX service (which means no service at all I guess)

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

Meant to happen fairly soon.


Unfortuantely all TUI's aircraft will become that ghastly yellow with the tuifly titles, a little like what Thomas Cook are doing with Condor. Such a shame, as I liked the Thomsonfly name and brand image. Also with Thomsonfly being like HLX/hapagfkly sort of set up, expect to see the same kinda thing, same livery different services.

I like the yellow actually.

Its meant to be 2008 AFAIK.

Its a shame to see thomsonfly go though, they were a great airline.

I always thought they should have aircraft in a mix of colours ala Courtline!

Having just read all the comments about Delta changing colours so often these days on the New Livery for CO? thread, I'm quite surprised nobody has commented on this mismatch of brands. They seem to have changed by each February 29th.

I'm almost beginning to think that someone high up in TUI has shares in a sprayshop?!

Well they wont excactly change much, they will just lose the lovely blue paint  Sad

Whe Im skiing in the Alps, and I glance up in the sky, instead of seeing a lovely blue 752 gliding into TRN, Ill see a tacky YELLOW 752 plunkling its way in  Sad

WE WANT BLUE BACK :d

Thomsonfly UK have been fighting the yellow decision, thus why the recent aircraft deliverys are in blue!

They've got a nice set of corporate colours at the moment... the shades of blue, and the "sandy" tones...

why change it?!
