When did BM change their colors ? And where can one see this new scheme ? I checked their web site and saw no new livery, and there is nothing in this database.So, can someone put up a link or post a photo ?
Thanks EDIpic, well it is certainly......diffrent! I suppose it is one of thoses liveries that will grow on you after a while, at least it is not another Eurowhite!. I do agree with those that preferred the previous scheme.
This carrier is slated to start an IAH service sometime this year or next, its still up in the air (pun intended!) as to when. I was really looking forward to seeing their A330s with those eye catching Dark/Blue colors of old.
Naw, a perfect touch-down shot here at YVR of the A330 would out-do any N. American airport. Ha! BTW, what are their plans with the A330s? With the list of routes they want to serve, it seems like there aren't enough A330's to get the job done! Even YVR is on the list!
What other people think of you is none of your business!
Sorry to disagree folks, but I like it! I never liked the old livery with that dark grey underside, but this is good. At first glance, I was reminded of the "Shamu" whale scheme used on Southwest Airlines. I also like the understated Union Jack on the tail (proud to be British, but no need to shout about it!)
I understand there is a 330 painted in the new colours ready for delivery at Toulouse...but...
The February 1 launch at Heathrow (no stampede please!) will feature the newly delivered A320 G-MIDU which has been in a hanger at Heathrow after flying in recently with the basic (basic??) colours applied but no titles...
The plot thickens...but I am planning a Feb 1 visit...any takers...??
The formal new image launch is Feb 1 at Heathrow. We also have had a 737 at East Mids that's been stripped for repaint in the new colors - last time I saw it it was all bare metal. A good contact inside the airline said that the image makeover was done by Landor.
A330s enter service in the spring, one doing Manchester - O'Hare and the other doing Manchester - Washington Dulles. The third A330 is going on lease to Scandinavian (for a year, I believe) and is slated to be in Star Alliance colors to save repainting it.
