I would change opacity a lil and drop the double txt, looks very cluttered with the opacity like that and the double txt and change the font. Whats the site for ? The font isnt professional for an airline type site, all in all think it will look good with a few changes. Nice job !
Yes, i agree that that font does not look very good. I would instead of fadding parts in, feather parts in. That way you wouldn't be getting into the opacity that much. Though a combination of feathering and fadding would turn out good.
Perhaps it might be worth considering condensing the valued information from the existing site and then putting that into a different design structure from the ground up. Using the feedback you've received in the process.
