Has there ever been a bigger draw-dropper than this  no .

I have only ever heard huge praise for this beauty. Therefore I am asking whether we have finally seen aviation perfection around 100 years since powered flight began? If anyone thinks they can beat it please post (including a nice clickable photo) - bet ya can't find a better looker!

If our votes really made a difference politicians would not let us have them.

Do they look better? Perhaps not, but they sure do get me aroused. Wink

VN does look nice but CO takes the cake.

both suggestions I notice have been on the 772ER. I think the 772 finishes off any livery well. The VN livery is nice, but I know there's another one out there that I like more, I've just forgotten it.....I'll come back to you when I remember

If you are looking for a 773 candidate i'd have to say first there are only a handful of carriers that fly them to begin with.

EK
CX
KE
AF
TG
JL
SQ
NH
BR

Both ANA and EVA look good to me.

You can't be serious. VN's livery is beautiful, that Peter Max paint looks like Mr. Max had some indigestion and let loose on an otherwise beautiful aircraft.  yuck   sour 

VN can't be beat, I'm sorry...I saw one in person on the Boeing tour in Everett, sitting next to a bunch of SQ jets, and I was blown away.

Wow, wow, wow. Peter Max looks like it was vandalized by a gang with cans of paint! VN has an amazing livery, but not on the greatest aircraft.....
It would look fantastic on the A345/6! Big grin

I think the VN livery is the best looking 777 out there, no doubt about it. Although I rather like the polished aluminium of AA's 772s.

I wonder how that livery might look on a 747? Won't be easy on the eye, will it?

I did not say that VN livery was not nice, I said that the Peter Max scheme takes the cake. Clearly you have no appreciation for art.

BTW: That would be a good pole. CO Peter Max vs VN paint scheme.


So sad we will not see AC paint on a 777 anytime soon.  crying   crying

Definetely, along with Air Tahiti Nui's scheme!

Happy that we get both VN 772s and 763s each day.

I have appreciation for art. That, my friend, is not art.  Wink IMO anyway...

The VN 777 runs a close second to the AA 777 in my mind. Nothing beats the shiny finish on those beauties!

Have to agree with you here, not only because I work for CO, but because this is simply the most unique plane flying, and there is a story behind it as well: http://www.petermax.com/features/plane777.html

VN's is nice, but to me nothing spectacular. And, Peter Max is a Pop Artist, which some people like Pop Art, others don't, so it's all up to your own taste.
