The Forgotten Hot Pepper Livery of the A330

Melbourne to Colombo

I rarely fly the A330, and I was really in the mood to fly it, so last week I decided to fly arguably the rarest livery in Infinite Flight. The SriLankan Airways A330. In my almost year of playing Infinite Flight I have never seen this livery be used. I actually think the livery is pretty cool, because I’m 90% or has a Hot Pepper on the tail and engines of the aircraft. They fly the A330 on many routes to Asia and Australia so I decided to fly from Melbourne like they do in real life, because it fit well with timing. I timed my arrival with golden hour in Colombo (the Capital of Sri Lanka) and flight time was 10 hours and 19 minutes

I personally enjoy the a330 in infinite flight during medium haul and long haul flights (I still don’t know why it climbs slower than real life is it realistic?)

I flew this aircraft twice, from Colombo to Dubai and Heathrow. Not very good landings that I made though.

I thought their logo was a peacock or something but now I can’t unsee the pepper.

Great pics as always.

I tried to do this flight, but Melbourne doesn’t have any gates big enough for an A330. Nice pics!

Edit: I was thinking of the other hot pepper livery, AirAsia X, they go to the other Melbourne airport. My bad.

I flew this plane from London to Colombo, as it does in real life. And it’s arguably the best A330 livery we have. I’ll have to continue onto Australia tonight, thanks for the flight idea! Happy landings!

@Infinite_Pilot1 I’ve looked at it for while and it was one on my “bucket list” to fly!

@Luke_King-kong thanks Luke! :)

@tunamkol I’m surprised how rare it is because it’s such an interesting livery!

@GameBoy_KIRB I like it too, but It soooooo slowly

@Rolls how? The A330 is so easy to butter 😂

@Vinne it sounds like an awesome place to visit!

@Ishrion after looking at it I think you’re right, but maybe it’s a mysterrrrryyyyyyy

@JulianB thanks Julian! I think Western Australia is underrated and should be featured more but the views are always amazing! And it was my First time in Sri Lanka and was really fun

@Jacob_Layton it might be a peacock, but I still think it looks like a pepper 😂

@anon41771314 🤦‍♂️

@BennyBoy shhhh don’t expose me

@anon79257371 I’ll be going for my 3rd in a few days thank you very much!

@dca.iad.aviation haha no worries lol

@MrPotato I agree! The livery is great, and maybe you should fly to Sydney, get a little more Australia align the way!

@Ur_Friendly_Approach I agree, the non gear tile makes a big difference

@anon57683537 I should stop with those topic names 😂

@VH-VCQ well we’re all In this together fighting the same battle so we can get through it 💪
