RE: Austrian's First 767 In New Livery?

Mon Dec 07, 2015 1:57 pm

Quoting FRAEDDF (Reply 46):
I think it says "Servus", a greeting that is very common in Austria.

Indeed, especially in Eastern Austria (where Vienna is located), this is an extremely common way of saying "hi!". Using this word is actually even fairly common on ATC chatter in/around VIE: "leaving your frequency, servus!" is apparently not that uncommon, especially for OS planes.

But outside Austria, this word does not really mean anything, and hardly anyone will be familiar with it. Except if you had Latin at school, in which case it translates as "slave". Good going, OS marketing droids.  

(but then, to expect a classical education from anyone working in marketing is probably asking way too much)

Super common here in Western Austria too. Every time you walk past someone on the street, you're about 90% likely to hear someone tell you either servus or grias-di / grias-enk.

Interesting approach to use it on the livery. With my overall dislike to the new refresh, I do like "servus" more than just writing "Austrian" on the belly.

I agree that is nice touch but about the only real positive plus they kept what was a simple but effective tail, although the one arrow looks slightly lost now, a secondary colour even if they left grey somehow makes the tail better.
Belly text is becoming more popular, just thankful they didn't put "my" on the belly.

OE-LAT should be the second 763 out of CBG paint shop in next few days.

Doesn't Grossgott (the Austrian formal hello) mean great god?

Sorry maybe it doesn't translate properly (English to German) but "Oh My Grossgott", OMGG

Not quite  

The actual term is "Gruess Gott", which literally means "May God greet you".

Well, the myAustrian is here to stay. 2nd B767 should arrive today in Vienna from the paintshop and the first Dash 8 Q400 is already in the paint shop and should come out sometimes in the upcoming week.

Finally also got a day shot on my page - it actually is not so bad, its the "my" thing which makes it look really ugly. If they would get that out and perhaps make the Austrian titles larger, it would look pretty well
