I think cargo airlines need to have better liveries so they can be seen. Look at these:

I agree completely here, but couldn't disagree more on Qantas: this has to be one of the most timeless and classy liveries around.

Others who badly need a makeover: CSA, Singapore, every Chinese airline, Kenya Airways (yes, the new one), Delta, Olympic, Egyptair, and several of the former republics of the USSR.

Let me add IB and AZ. LH should still do for a while.

Singapore Airlines

a timeless classic ..don't you dare touch it ( or if you must then restore it to the original SQ midnight blue/yellow scheme without the gold stripe on the fin and cheatline ) ...I am still in mourning for TG's classic scheme which has been disastrously UPS-ised.

In dire need of a new scheme SN Brussels - please remove all associations with the ghost of Sabena .

American is in desperate need of a new livery. The current one has been around for far too long.

I think CO needs to update theirs. They could easily modernize the existing livery to make it look just fantastic.

I want to agree with you, but I just can't imagine AA in a different livery. What they have now is pretty much timeless.

The perils of getting old - I had been going to say that the current GA livery is quite new ... then I checked the photo database ... I cannot find a more recent photo of the orange livery than 1985 ... and I can find the 'new' livery in the same year ... I am feeling my age and am going to have a lie down now .

I think Korean Air needs to update theirs. I don't like certain blue they use, and it's gets very monotonous after a while. I'd love to see them do something with it.

I also think Ibera could do something really cool also.

Besides, with an increasing number of composite parts in future airframes the AA livery won't look as good any longer.

If AF or IB go for a new livery, they should choose something that doesn't show dirt as much.
 

I honestly wish that LH would go for the A321 retro look on all their aircraft.

I don't know about you, but I think Alaska Airlines (AS) is in need of a new livery. Sure the Salmon and Mickey Mouse are nice, but we need a new paint job.

Just looked through a few of my Airliners magazine's and think that Air Berlin needs a new livery as well.

I second that, CO has had the same livery since 1991.

It would be hard to see AA in a new livery. Besides I still like it.



Is it broke...? Yeah I'll fix it.

As a New Zealander it hurts me to say it but I really think NZ needs a new look (keep the koru on the tail but sort out the rest)!

DL (the new one)
SQ (sorry)!
BA (have never warmed to it, bring back the old one)
MA (what is with the nose)!
AI (very dated)
CA (boring)
EK & ET (I can hear the screams of outrage)  Wow!

Anything that resembles a bird or arrow. Can't they be a little more imaginitive?
for example
AR
OS
KU

Someone stop me! There are some that I like, I promise!  Big grin

Although BA's one is ok, I think they could do with a much better one!
It would be brilliant if they could incorporate their 'To Fly To Serve' Royal Coat of Arms as they did on their previous Landor livery.




I think the above could be incorporated onto the tail on this BA livery below, which is an updated version of their current one.

I never knew GA had a new livery... Only thing I can find in the database is their old white livery with Garuda on the side and A Garuda on the tail.. although it really represents Indonesia, I think it's old and could use a change.

BTW, sorry I'm making you feel old :P

EEEUWWW! Thats awful.

The current BA is far better.

My votes for carriers most needing a new livery:

AA (it's NOT timeless .. its TIRED!)
SQ (Blecccchh. and enough with the stupid names like MEGATOP)
VS (Redesign of the tail area -- looks ungainly and clunky - bad design)


25 Tbnist03 : I absolutely LOVE AA's livery. It would totally break my hear to see it changed. On the other hand, I was sort of meh about NW's old red / grey liver
26 FlyDreamliner : AA's and CO's both look nice, and both have been on their planes for way TOO long. That said, CO's might be the nicest looking livery going. It's just
