Delta Air Lines' first A330-300 seen being towed out of the paint shop. I think the new colors look great on the heavy airbus, as opposed to some other types in the airline's fleet! [Canon 40D]

This is incredible. I never expected I would see the day when an A330 bore the title of Delta Air Lines. All I can say is that I'm in awe. This is change. Change is Delta.

Ouhooha, I like the colors, but it's not striking at all, especially the letters in the left. I would love to see it in real, though! Thanks, Josh!

The widget looks great on an Airbus, I can't wait to see it in Atlanta.

I like this aircraft anyway, but in these colors it looks great.

The titles are so tiny...and white is everywhere the light can (unfortunately) emphasize it...let's hope money goes inside the aircraft : new seats, IFE(!), meals, etc...

That might simply be the most gorgeous aircraft I have ever seen. Simply gorgeous, elegant, simple, and sleek. Bravo DL!

Love the delta livery on the A320/330 but couldnt they have made the 'Delta' titles a little bigger?

Way to go getting the first shot up on this new bird (we'll certainly see many more). Very odd how small the "Delta" is on the side of the fuselage. Hard to read from a distance.

Nice shot! While the tail, engines and winglet looks great in DL-colors, I do think they could've increased the size of the DELTA on the fuselage.

Although I am a big fan of the current NWA livery I have to admit that Delta colours are great on an A330. Well done, thank you Josh

Great foto!! I think the DL A330 looks quite wihtie like the Air Berlin A332/3. I enjoyed Northwest's lacquering...

They paint that huge plane yet they managed to skip on cleaning the main gear! Compare the main gear with nose gear and you'll see how filthy they are!

The new livery seems to be pretty dull!

You couldn't beat NWA livery if you tried. This is a nice aircraft, but why they choose those small Delta titles is beyond me.

Great pic! Though I wonder, whose L-1011 is it in the background?

Nothing will ever beat the NWA colors. But she does look good in delta colors.

This paint scheme looks horrible on an A330. DELTA is too small, and the plane is too white. It looked much better when this aircraft had the NWA livery on it. Sad day, indeed.

I really like the A333, i'm not a great fan of this colour scheme however. i don't think it has the brand power a good airline like this should have, just look ay united, northwest if i didn't know it as delta, i wouldn't look twice at it. i think they could've done better

Mehh the titles need to be bigger. Delta doesn't do much for me with all the white. They should have kept NWA colors and threw on the delta logo and name :)

Awesome picture. It will be very cool to see the 330's in Atlanta someday soon.

I bet NW's B757-300 will have small titles too. Great shot but it doesn't beat NW's colors!

Looks a little to white, and the Delta looks a little too small. But thats just my opinion

Great Foto!!! But I think the paintsheme looks quite boring like the Air Berlin A330-200/200 former LTU.
But all in all you had picked up the beuti well...

I think the A330 may be one of the few NW airframes that look anywhere near decent in DL colors. Did anyone else notice the F-4 on the right side of the shot with the black nose?
