WX has a brand new livery on one of its Avro's. Its incredibly boring. It will only feature on that single plane though.

Anything with the predominately white body that seems so predominant these days. BUT - and I always get flamed for this, IMO, AA seriously needs a facelift. Come on folks, that livery is almost 40 years old. Brand recognition or not, lets see a little creativity and something fresh and new. Non-metallic would be nice too, but that also gets me flamed. Oh well. I'm ready, let me have it.  duck

I agree that AA needs to update their livery. It is quite boring if you ask me.

The only thing saving AA is the chrome finish. MQ provides us with a convincing demonstration of just how atrocious that livery looks once you throw Eurowhite into the equation. Funny what some buffing can do for a bird!

AA, No way, their livery is a classic and should stay as it is.

Well, when I was in SXM in February of '06 I saw Dutch Antilles Express's ATR-42 several times in this livery, but without the green 'dae' on the tail, so it was an all white plane with a phone number on it. Very boring.

Iberia is not boring - more like tacky.

Alitalia - Its OK, in my opinion. Although I do not like this scheme on their 777's.

Lufthansa - I love it. This is my favorite color scheme on a European Carrier. It always has this "new" look that I like a lot.

Boring ones - Air France and American - yet I wouldn't change them because although boring, both are
classic and recognized world wide. The exception to this would be Iberia - I'd change their scheme in a heart beat  Big grin

Should start with a fresh piece of paper, not just for the livery though.........

I have to agree with you 100% on that one but i think some big carriers should be a bit
more creative with their liveries.

I disagree...AAs livery is classic; it's simple, clean and easily recognizable. If it ain't broke.....

A more accurate way of asking is 'what era in aviation has the most boring livery'?
Most airlines today have boring liveries. I can't stand the white fuselage and painted tail look. The only airline that can get away with this look is Air France because they''ve been doing it for ever.

The worst I wouls pick these airlines.

These airlines used to have some of the most beautiful in the industry and have gone to cheap generic looking aircraft.

Well, I think Delta was good to go with a red widget, but I think them rotating it 45 degrees on the tail is just wrong... but it's a bad livery not a boring one...

Boring... Continental, World Airways ain't all that good either. And it's such a shame since they used to have BEAUTIFUL liveries.
