Is the an unwritten competition these days as to who can fly the ugliest livery these days? 😯 

I don't mind it. I break it down into different areas. The colours seem reasonable to me including the way they were applied. I can't say I really like it but I personally find it reasonable.

The logo is not pretty but I do think of it a pretty interesting as I have to give top marks for the idea of turning an airplane into a face. Never seen that before, so I will give credit for something different.

Not sure if the photo was meant for widespread publicity, but you think the chief pilot and captain would have worn something more professional than old jeans and track shoes. It must have made a good impression when they picked up the airplane from the Mro in Ireland.

Times are changing I guess.

Those "changes" were over 20 years ago. The same approach didn't hurt Westjet.

If I were ferrying my company’s first airplane into the country, I’d know there’d be historical pictures to be taken and I’d want to be in my Sunday’s best!😀

That’s great, but who is going to fly their planes? Of the first seven pilots who expressed an interest, and who combined had over 100 years and 100,000 hours of flying experience on Airbus aircraft, only one remains. And that’s the chief pilot. Terms being offered are worse than Swoop and Flair. Jetlines could become JetsGone faster than JetsGo. 🤔

Interesting, but where did these Airbus guys come from? Overseas?

 

And where did they go? Boeings?

Isn't Jetlines working with a company called Global crossing out of the U.S.? I ask this because I have heard that Flair is running into some difficulties based on their business dealings with the company they are associated with in the U.S. It appears that Flair may be in a situation where any money brought in goes to the U.S. partner.

 

I suspect these big U.S. companies want control.
