A bit too much purple for my liking but I still like it, big improvement from their previous boring livery. Can't wait to see this on their E170s, will look a lot like the FlyNonstop airline that went bust I believe

For once an airline has added colour rather than eurowhite. I like it :)
Let's not complain, that aircraft could have come out all white with flybe on the tail. :p

This is ghastly

The previous livery was clean and smart by modern standards.

Hopefully it won't last long.

I agree, bleurgh! This must be the 'new image' the CEO was mentioning in the last inflight magazine

I just jumped off my flight from Paris in Exeter and it was parked up next to us. I personally didn't like the pictures but I have to say having seen it in the "flesh" it looks far, far better than any picture. When I get to fly her I will take some more pics and upload them. I just saw the new cabin crew uniform in the crew room and that looks fantastic too. I hope our new image and service will be well received.

As for the rest of the fleet I am led to believe not every aircraft will be painted like this. You will see the old Flybe livery around for sometime yet.

This was not an aircraft pulled out for a repaint but one of the ones that was in Brussels Airlines livery.

Due for a repaint anyways, that is probably how the fleet will progress rather that progressive painting as with the recent Thomson into the new TUI Dreamliner.

Flybe is trying to bring itself out of a bit of a hole so I don't see them spending more than they need.

However they may quickly paint up an E-175 for publicy shots etc. The E-195's are all due to have been withdrawn by the end of this summer...

We have no plans to paint an E175 in that livery.

I hope the OP has permission from the photographer to reproduce the Airliners.net photo.

There is an ex Aer Lingus regional ATR.42 (EI-REL) now in this livery, well one report dated 27th saying it is to be painted and another saying in the hanger 23-28 for painting and given that was reported on the 29th I assume it is out...if not soon will be.

I think I might start a stall up the airpot seeing heavy duty sunglasses, the ones used for looking directly at the Sun:rolleyes:

Deano...I'm told on another forum the E-170's will be painted???

Indeed EI-REL is in the Purple livery, EI-REM will be repainted/rolled out in the same paint scheme aswell for the Stobart Air/ Flybe franchise routes. The purple paint scheme looks alot better on the ATR's than the Q400's in my opinion.
