I found the results of the market research highly surprising. Namely, full colour = budget, and large text = budget. For the latter, I think of Finnair, and think that their large text livery looks expensive, and classy. Though I thought the discovery that it is an airline to get you to ireland is also interesting, but thatīs nothing to do with livery, its purely about providing capacity, and eventually that belief will disappear. Finally obsession with modernity is frustrating also, nothing ages quicker than yesterdays version of tomorrow. My personal preference would have been to go retro, perhaps grey, and a dark green text readying Aer Lingus. I couldnīt care less about the shamrock.

Ohh Ugh. That's a fine mess.

Lets be positive. They have only painted one of their aircraft like that. Its not too late.

Oh my God. I asked this question when Iberia rebranded, and when Lufthansa did it too: What is going through these people's minds? Are they deliberately going out of their way to see who can design the most banal livery?

Me too...sometimes less is more. The titles are clean and crisp, and the tail adds a bit of a flourish. It's not ground-breaking, but it's neat and tidy, and maintains brand identity. It's not going to be mistaken for anyone else!

It's not as bad as people re making out but it's certainly a step down from the current livery. Reeks of Qantas 2.0. Still, 100x better than the eyesores that are Finnair and Iberia

Err, are we looking at the same livery? Take the Shamrock off and it could be any single-flyer DoD charter operator. Or perhaps some Russian outfit that flies once a week to Murmansk. Or... Level's shorthaul subsidiary.

If the only distinguishing feature is the logo, then what's the point of the livery? Just be honest and do an all-over white job like that Omni 767 that did the Shannon services a while back. Stick a Shamrock on the tail, job jobbed and EUR2 million saved.

One suspects that the somewhat bland-ish make over has all the hallmarks of IAG's continuing and aggressive cost cutting agenda within the group.

It' surely can't be a co-incidence that the 3 liveries IAG have launched (Iberia, Level and now EI) are all an almost identical style. EI went to great lengths in their presentation to explain what the brand/livery should represent, yet as if by magic they ended up with a blue/green version of Iberia ..

As for the other IAG airlines, Vueling largely fit the theme already. Just BA left to get the "Eurowhite with coloured tail" treatment?

Not a fan I have to say,. Looks like something they rented in for a few months and did a quick paint job on it..but hey, each to their own.
The Morketing speak at the launch was hilarious to listen to though.

Bullshit Bingo at its best.

Business decided what it was doing and marketING got told to write it up and justify it.

Some awful waffle though imo.

Can someone confirm if EI flew SNN-BOS 6 x Weekly with a daily JFK last winter (18/19) ? It's usually JFK that's 6 weekly with BOS daily, or have I FUBARED my own records once again?

Thanks!

Its usually JFK until 5/6 Jan and resume around 10 Mar and BOS throughout the winter however last year it was reversed and JFK operated all season presumably because of DY increase SWF to 5 or 7 weekly. This year JFK will be axed like recent years instead of BOS.

BOS was x6 weekly JFK daily then dropped to x6 from early Jan.
