BA tailfins - bah; Britts new livery is in a new league of banality-it looks like it has faded in the Mediterranean sunshine. I do hope they didn't pay someone to come up with this.

(I quite like Maersk DKs livery).

ahh, it's simple, the paint chappies
fell off the ladder as they were painting
the BAL logo, hence the dodgy red stripe !!
no worries, get more paint & a better ladder :-)

OK, so we appear to all agree, the World of Tui aircraft colour scheme is only liked by the designer and presumably the Management & Supervisory Boards of Preussag (who must have agreed to it).

The point is we all have to live with it, no matter if we're from the UK, Germany or Nordic region and I guess ultimately the other countries where Preussag has Tour Operating shareholdings (Belgium, France, Italy and Poland)

When you look at the world map in the latest edition of "unpacked" then you clearly see that Preussag is most definately a "world company" which just happens to have its shares mainly on the Germany stock exchange.

Lets hope that between us we can prove that Britannia and Thomson are a valuable part of that group and are given the chance to grow (money?) within the new group.

Looks to me to be bit of a 'touchup' job. Can you see any registration anywhere in the photograph. Nothing on rear of fuselage, nothing on nosewheel-doors and nothing above cockpit!

Cheers

That might be the same greek 737-500 (Galaxy) used for the new Hapag presentation the other day. Former D-AHLN don't know exact SX-reg. Will be repainted soon and return.

Kerosene Kraut - it was indeed that aircraft. Port side had the Hapag Lloyd titles; starboard Britannia.

Reminds me of the story of the guy who tied his forskin to his eylid so everytime he winked he w@nked

Ive also heard that TUI stands for
"Thats Us Inside"

Cannot see why anyone would pay for that.

(speling mishtake!!)

Anyone know when the first BY aircraft will be painted? Nothing on their website about it. I agree the livery looks... erm.. less than excellent, but maybe it will look better on the 75/76? I think it will look quite nice on the 737-800 myself.

Chances are you will see a 738 in Tui colours as they are simply being relocated to Britannia Nordic.

Since everybody seems to love it that much Corsair will get the same scheme.
Demo a/c is SX-BFP.

Apparently I have it on good authority the the smile logo is supposed to resemble
t,u,i of TUI

The left part of the mounth is the 't' the mouth is the 'u' and the right side is the 'i'

call this design ? Child's play more like !
