Re: Hi Fly unveil A380 Coral Reef livery

I think it looks great. Especially the darker color. It's no Wunala Dreaming, but it's more interesting than your typical corporate white livery many a380's have.

While I don`t like the color (but may be some white balance issue), I think this is a clever move by HiFly.

As this bird will probably serve several operators, it is neutral (can`t see any reference to HiFly) without being boring-white. I think it would feel strange for me boarding a white plane. This is different. It`s operator-neutral, could be made look nice and it`s for a good cause which everybody can identify with too.

I've seen a couple of pics from the front (check AeroNews Facebook page), there is a big HiFly logo on the forward fuselage, it's just blocked by the engines in the above pics.

Thanks for the hint on AeroNews Facebook page. On the other side, the water is colored in dark blue, which looks great for me. But looking at the light blue side from the front makes it look a lot better.

The first photo linked in this thread was made from a bad angle. Those on the facebook page and the later one`s in here are a lot better.

I actually like it. I don`t mind it`s cartoon-style, it adds to the positive message.

Edit: I just saw what`s painted on the engines. For those who worry who paid for it- It looks like they had a sponsor for the paintjob. Or maybe even a little more. Creative way of generating profit?
Those guys are smart and think out of the box.

The Bloomberg article is weird in that it says it will fly from 1 August but they haven't decided who with.

Surely an airline needs at least a month to rejig schedules, sell new tickets if adding capacity, or booking maintenance time if using it as cover.

Hope the foundation paid for the paint otherwise Hi Fly spent a awful lot of money on something with no tangible return on investment. Goodwill doesn't pay the bills.


Doubt it, HiFi CEO is Paulo Mirpuri, who also leads the Mirpuri foundation.

I like the livery - far better than all those eurowhites and for a good cause
