Will the 真实 太阳之翼 Airlines 制服请站起来吗?

在多伦多时,我很快就瞥见了我不喜欢的制服。我没’t able to catch the name, but after a little research I found it to be 太阳之翼 Airlines. It took a bit longer to actually find what their “real” livery was, since there were quite a few 各种杂物的大杂烩. Some examples: 维京人,一种  TUIfly,一种  赫伯罗特,一种  汤普森蝇,一种  波音格林,一种  欧洲大西洋,我有想念吗?很明显,这家航空公司喜欢租用飞机。我实际上不得不去他们的网站以确保他们“real”事实证明,这是涂装,这是我在多伦多看到的。

出租了这么多飞机之后,他们当然需要保持简单的涂装,但是这确实没有’为我工作。我认为真正困扰我的是在机身上然后是难以辨认的尾巴上放上这些单词。我真的很喜欢他们的防晒徽标,并认为它的尾巴看起来会很好。另外,由于某种原因,引擎发蓝使我困扰—他们可能会看起来更好的橙色。我的意思是这绝不是 可怕的制服, but a few simple changes could 真实ly make it shine.

尽管对于航空公司的发现者来说很有趣,但是当外观如此之多时,确实会使您的客户很难了解您的品牌,但是我想这是从航空公司租赁飞机的不利方面。

太阳之翼 was founded in 2005 and operates a fleet of about 20 aircraft (all 波音737-800)。根据他们的网站,“Canada’领先的廉价航空公司。”他们称他们的高装饰 香槟服务,实际上提供了许多当今大多数航空公司所没有的免费赠品(例如香槟,食品,耳机等)。他们向美国,墨西哥,加勒比海,中美洲,南美以及加拿大当然提供定期和包机服务。

Have any of you flown them and can describe how the 香槟服务 was? Seems like if you can get past the mediocre livery, the flight experience is not too shabby and 真实ly that is what matters most right?

如果您近距离看,波音格林飞机就和Real Livery飞机是同一架飞机,但我想您知道ðŸ™,

I’ve flown with 太阳之翼 once in 2008 (YYZ-YVR), never got my Champagne, but it was still a great experience flying with them! I don’t know 为什么you don’t喜欢他们的制服。(哦,等等,您在文章中对此做了解释),但我喜欢!我认为这种制服只会是香港绿洲的第二’s.

好像你没有’在多伦多花很多时间,我会’我很高兴见到你!

哇,你那么喜欢制服吗?我也很喜欢Oasis,他们的747中有四张很棒的照片’在一起,这总是很酷的。

Reading closer, looks like the champagne only comes out on flights leaving 加拿大.

我有一种无法在很多目的地停留很长时间的方法,但是我确实住了两个晚上,这还不错!

嘿大卫
I flew 太阳之翼 in 2009 and my flight left Edmonton for Peurto Valarta at 6 am and once the plane was airborne the flight attendants came around with a glass of champagne served on a silver tray. A short while later they also served a hot breakfast meal as well. On the way back to Edmonton a week later it was an evening flight and they didn’不能提供香槟,但可以提供热餐和一杯红葡萄酒或白葡萄酒。
The service was better than I expected as the flight was booked as part of an all-inclusive travel package. Including, Flight, Accommodation, Meals, and Beverages for $1000.00 including taxes. The service on the 太阳之翼 flight was quite a bit better than on Air Transat as well as the quality of the food.
我会再次勇敢地与他们同行。
干杯布雷特

大卫,

太阳之翼 lease quite a few 737-800s in from Europe for the Winter season. It’s the quietest time for European airlines so it makes sense for the aircraft to be leased out to 加拿大 where 太阳之翼 needs the extra capacity during the winter. As an aside TUI has a large shareholding in 太阳之翼 and owns Thomson Airways (8 aircraft currently on lease to 太阳之翼) and TUIfly so they are just moving spare capacity around the group airlines.

问候,

嘿马克

感谢您提供的信息,这确实很有意义。

我从YYZ-YUL带走了一次。超级便宜,所以没有香槟。夏季,他们每周仅飞行两次航线,主要是为了将飞机飞往YUL,进行YUL-YVR飞行。我以为他们的产品不错,很高兴再次在飞机上呆几个小时–特别是如果它把我带到南方!

嘿詹姆斯,

I guess the champagne only comes out on flights that leave 加拿大. For inter-Canada, no bubbly!

大卫,您好

太阳之翼’s c/scheme stems from an agreement they had with 维京人 Airlines (a Swedish Airline based in the UK who ceased trading in Oct-10). 维京人 leased their aircraft to 太阳之翼 in the winter to give additional capacity for 加拿大/Caribbean flights, while the reverse happened in the summer for the European holiday market. They decided it would be easier to have the same c/scheme so they only needed to change the names on the aircraft each fall/spring.

Unfortunately, since 维京人 went bust, 太阳之翼 are having to lease in winter capacity from a lot of European airlines (Thomson in the UK and TUI Germany and Belgium), hence all the different c/schemes.

嗨,肯,

感谢您的附加信息!

他们是一个“休闲包机”;所以没有必要放下他们关于他们的“各种杂物的大杂烩”。是的,他们租用飞机…他们以低廉的价格向(主要是)加勒比海地区的休闲旅行者提供体面的服务…why “nit pick”?..以他们的真实身份来欣赏他们!
