I think it's time for a new livery contest. Let's start with European airlines and then, if successful, I'll make similar contests for other continents.

You can suggest the airlines you want represented in this contest. The aircraft used in the photos will be narrowbodies for all airlines (please don't vote for the aircraft type instead of the livery).

I will start with my two suggestions:
[b]Air Greenland[b] (I consider it in Europe, even though it's North American geographically); I ask you: should it count as Europe or not?
[b]KLM Royal Dutch[b]

Propose other airlines before 8PM EST today and I will start the competition afterwards. I will choose 16 or 32 airlines (depending on how many proposals).

Or the Braathens livery in general if required.

Quoting GAIsweetGAI (Reply 8):
I suggest this Braathens livery

That wasn't a long-lived livery... They replaced that awful silver wing thing with the traditional flag since the Norwegian people didn't like the new design. But now they operate in a slightly modified SK livery.

My votes:
1. SK
2. KL
3. VS

Cheers

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

I'll split this up into "regions" and start the topic Contest: Best European Livery around 8PM EST. However, if anyone thinks an airline with a good livery is missing (though I can't think of one), you have 3.5 hours to write down your choice.
I shall explain the rules in the topic I shall open later.

Thank you all.  Smile
