Meh



According to the designers of the overhaul, the yellow and blue was perceived as 'cheap' and the yellow will now be protected as a highlight colour for 'surprises'.  Like that tiny, tiny yellow rectangle just aft of the forward door or the crews' uniform ties.

Which means that the majority of people ( i.e. those not flying with DLH ) will no longer associate any yellow with the airline.

It's a bit like Easyjet reliverying black-and-white but keeping orange scarves.

That has to be one of the dullest liveries ever. :(

I read an article today that they are having to backtrack on their livery.

Among other things:
- There's been so much public backlash over removal of the yellow
- The Navy is too dark under grey skies - it's causing problems at major airports

They've 40 aircraft already changed that will need repainted

I wonder how much they forked out to the consultants who came up with the idea?

It's 'Consignia' all over again  ::)

It's only a small thing but I think I remember seeing an A320 in it too  :)
