It looks quite funny. I can see a lot of flags, Hop Suisse and "Airline for all Fans". But I miss a reference to the EURO 2008. I did not find a title.

Click the thread starters profile, scroll down and you'll see the photo of the Airbus A320 HB-IJM.

Just guessing here, maybe it's because LX isn't the official carrier of the EURO 2008.

I think you are right.

Quoting B747forever (Reply 12):

Probably there is none. If you want to be an official sponsor of the EURO you have to pay alot of money. The UEFA is very, very stern. If you are not an official sponsor you must not use EURO 2008 and similar words, which are brand protected.

I dont like the OS livery, seems so boring and with the the text unofficial makes it even worse. The LX is more better.

I agree. The OS is terribly boring. It looks like their normal livery. There is no action in it. In the LX there is more motion and emotion.

Looks great, but they could have done better. I hoped for a large football on the tail or something like that. Now they just need to paint an A330 or an A340 in that livery  Wink

SWISS bringt den Ball ins Rollen und schickt jetzt, ab dem 01. Dezember 2008, einen Airbus A320 im besonderen «Hopp Schwiiz»-Design auf die Reise.

The LX one definitely looks better than the OS one. Then again, I believe LH should bring back the football noses like during the World Cup. It was subtle, but effective. Big grin

Hi!

Very nice indeed this EURO 2008 livery, simple but indeed very effective! I also hope that TAP will paint an Airbus with the EURO 2008 achievement for Portugal...we are heading there my friends...and hopefully for the swiss aviation fan TAP will bring some "heavy metal" to swiss airports....personally I would like to see Portugal playing in Switzerland!!! We'll see, today is the draft...Geneva or Bern are great places to play, Zurich and Basel are good too, I'm a bit disapointed that St. Gallen don't have a group there, I have very good friends that live in that area (Herisau) and I would love to return to that awesome canton  cloudnine 
Just a souvenir from TP special for EURO 2004 ( where Switzerland was present and many portuguese enjoyed them playing!!! ) hereunder.

I too prefer the Swiss one. The OS design is too "kitschig": the scarf but also the caption. Still, sobriety was always one of their qualities that I appreciated. A great airline.

Herisau is close to Zurich, say an hour by train, so you should be fine  Wink About 2 hours from Bern and Basel.

Hi!

Yesssssssss!!! Yessssssssss!!! We'll be playing in Switzerland WITH Switzerland too!!! I'm quite surprised to see that Portugal will play in Basel....I expected Zurich or Bern maybe, but that's OK! BSL enthusiasts, prepare yourselves because TP is gonna bring a lot of people, I expect a few A330-200/A340-300's flights or even the heyday for the A310-300's!!! I hope both Portugal and Switzerland pass in this group!!!
