Hello,
There have been many dismal threads about the vanishing need for a livery and I wanted to look on the bright side of that topic. What are some of your favorite airline liveries. I will start the list of with my personal favorite, the final PSA scheme. The bright colors and cheat line are just classic along with a unique smilie face. Thank you for your contribution.

My favorite Livery was the Old UA livery. My first plane spotting memory is of a UA plane with this livery. I believe 747 at LAX

Sorry to disagree with you, but of all the UA liveries, I think that was the worst of them all. Ugly Stephen Wolf gray, etc.
Personally, I think the one after this was their best.
As for my all-time fav, I liked PSA's of early 80's. That along with AirCal's made for a very colorful lineup at some airports.
My favorite logo has to have been both Gem State Airlines and Mountain West Airlines from 1979.

AA's new livery is my favorite!!!   (just kidding)


I like US Airways. It is simple and elegant. AA's old livery really was American, it is awesome and I will miss it!

Tough choice. I can narrow it down to a top five.

In no particular order:

- Final BOAC scheme (Especially on a VC-10)
- British Airways Negus scheme 1970s-1984
- British Airways Landor scheme 1984-1997
- South African Airways scheme through the 1970s (Looked good on a B747SP)
- Cathay Pacific scheme until the 1990s

I don´t think a 747-200 loks better than this.

This one looks great on the MD-80s
