fish Britannia Livery

I saw in a rather unpopular daily paper this morning (namely the Mail), the proposed livery for the 'new look Britannia.' - Why does it have to be so European (a winking smile)?

Surely Britannia could keep the traditional symbol but make the paint work more lively 'a la BMI.' The design is 18 years old I understand, so it's unsurprisingly going to change - but why so adversely?

They can buy the 'Baby Blue' paint in bulk along with KLM, Maersk & Korean Air ...

I know the old 'go faster stripes' are looking a bit Ford Capri like by modern airline standards, that's fair enough, but to totally lose the symbol?

I think it's our old german friends trying to get one over on us before the football by taking away one of our national symbols!

The group isn't going to change the name to something like 'Britannia Berlin' or 'die Neuer Luftwaffe!'

Cool

From worldoftui.com:

A smile becomes a shared sign of quality

World of TUI gives our tourism brands a clearly identifiable international look. It maintains the diversity of our tourism brands at the same time as creating a globally visible brand-world -- a shared sign of quality, of a kind never seen before in the tourism industry. We therefore selected a smile as the new logo because a smile is one of the few forms of expression that has no national or cultural boundaries. It also succinctly expresses our vision: ŧPutting a smile on people’s faces

.....so that explains it then.

They applied the same "Korean Look" to Hapag-Lloyd recently.

Bobby Guzzler: Have you been reading the 'Sun' again? So Britannia belongs to a German company, who want to repaint the aeroplanes - so what? What about Deutsche BA?

It's a global world out there, and the war was 60 years ago. If you believe the tabloids, it's still going on.

Let me guess: A couple of latte-drinking, long-haired, 30-something yuppies conceived this new paint scheme for $2 million...

I prefer the old black and white paint scheme - it's more British...

Does anyone remember the mulit-coloured BA paint-scheme fiasco????? I bet these advertising/marketing yuppies don't! Lame!

Cheers

Bobby Guzzler: remember, we live in the year 2001, not in 1940. I don't like the colour scheme too, but normally I expect a little higher level from pilots...

To Bobby:
I think we should stay calm at this point. Britania and Hapag-Lloyd get a new painting? So what???
OK, I donīt like the new look either, but I found the old Hapag also not very well done. We are working for ONE big firm, the world of TUI (or call it PreussAG if you want), so why donīt fly with the same painting.
And I think we all should not see it that way, that britania is now flying with a "german" symbol on the tail, PreussAG is a global player which has some airlines in it, and they want to have them paint in the same way. Thatīs all - nothing more and nothing less.
WEBSI




PS.: nevertheless we gonna win on saterday...

Hello Forum,

there`s absolutely no need for bashing each other on this forum. If hooligans and players want to do this on Sarurday, I don`t care. But educated people who should know that the war ended more than 50 years ago???
I`m sorry to hear that Britannia is to get the "Korean" livery, too. I was shocked when I first saw it on the Hapag 737. It`s disgusting and I`m sorry for the pilots who have to fly them. Both carriers were definitely in need of a new look, but I wonder why so-called designers always manage to make matters worse. Let`s unite against this bull****. LTU`s management made a U-turn as well and abolished the new paintjob introduced on their 320s in spring.

eggi- agreed ! The new colour scheme looks like a cross between Korean/Maersk. We could do much better. Sadly, we probably paid some design company a lot of money to produce this rubbish !

...looks like a German invasion on this page, doesn't it?!
But Bobby, please put your finger from the trigger, it's just a game. Remember?
