I think they are merging the two brands ever closer. It doesn't look too bad, quite smart.

Looks OK! I remember seeing TF-ELV last summer, which had a similar tail. Richard

I like it - makes them look more than just a budget carrier. Noticed last year that the paint was pealing off the logo in parts last summer so glad they changed it. whats the interior like any photos?

Not bad, but it's that type of plane that will look nice in good light but terrible otherwise.

Good Luck to Jon in Aug....I`m not far behind in Oct LGW-SFB, hope its over the the 400`s, dont know if that means back seat TV`s for all, but the kids are not looking forward to just 1 cabin TV, spoilt bratts, too much BA for them.

I don't think it looks too bad just a bit bland. Is it just me or do the engines look tiny compared to the plane?

I also think it looks really snazzy, much like the 737-400 (TF-ELV), as mentioned above. Given the choice, I'd rather get the 747-300 over the 747-400.

on Friday morning i saw an Excel Airways 767-300 landing at Manchester i checked the teletext for the fight, but there was only XLA 133L -i think it was that flight number- from Sanford so i just guessed. and has excel airways based an 767-300 at Manchester this summer as i see in flightcheck a number of XLA flights operated by 767-300 to like Tenerife South etc..? Ow and i do belive TF-AMK is now in the burnt orange style tail livery! Jon
