What makes it more odd is that when tVS abandoned the silver paint they introduced metallic red for the decorated parts.
TG´move is probably similarly motivated but I noticed the metallic purple peeled off the leading edges of the tailfin and stabilizers (the latter are now boring grey again). The dull purple certainly doesnt look nice anymore.
I totally agree with you on this. The metallic paint is just much nicer on the VS
tails. This is why I also like the BD
livery (because of the metallic paint used to write the airline's name on the fuselage).

I have also noted the peeling of the metallic paint both the 744 tails of VS
but haven't seen that happen to their other aircraft types.
As I have said before, what I don't understand is why VS
painted a A343 with the metallic paint while they already started receiving the A333 in the standard red colors(?)
please bring back your nice metallic paint!!! Can you imagine the TG
A380 's having that nice metallic purple? Wow...
