Simply, what are some of your favorite aircraft/airline combos that never mated...or haven't just yet?

Some of the tops on my list are:

Northwest 777-300
Northwest A340-600
Frontier 757-300
Delta 727-200 (2007 colors)
Delta 777-200 (70s-90s colors)
Southwest 737-900

would also love to see pics posted of any good photoshopped non-existent combos.

Now yours...

Qantas and Concorde looked superb.

Nalanji Dreaming on an A380 would be nice too.

how about an MD-11 in United's Stars and Bars?

or a 747-400 with either the Pan Am billboard titles or the TWA colors from the 70s-90s?



Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it

"Freedom of Space" on the Sonic Cruiser would also look great.

The Tropical Megatop colour schemes would look good on just about anything.

Not great! Incredible!!!

In my opinion, the best airliners ever made are various, in this order...

1. McDonnell Douglas DC-10

A VC 10 would have looked better and would have been more realistic. Branson is very patiotic  Wink

I really liked the last TWA livery and many aircraft would have looked great in that one:
747-8I
A330/A340
777-300ER
73G
757 wingelts....



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

It's supposed to be planes or airplane/airline combos that never existed. You just listed real airliners.

A UA MD-11 in the current color scheme would be nice. Or EA MD-80 with the bare metal fuselage look. I always kind of wondered why they never placed an order, seemed like it would have fit in fleet well. I suppose Lorenzo's ill intentions were part of the equation there.


There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

I'm confused. Or maybe you are. The thread is about aircraft type/livery combos that never existed. How does this fit the category? Or is it just a joke?

My apologies, I posted the wrong link, now I cannot find the correct one. The correct link was indeed the SR-71 with a mirror finish. I will keep looking.

CO A340 gets my vote. The A340 is the only Airbus aircraft that I like the looks of. (don't kill me anyone!) And I love the CO livery.
