in no particular order my top 10
SA (okay , I lied about no particular order this is number one of all time )
TG ( the classic one before they ****ed up by "UPS-ing" it )
CP ( the '70s orange one )
AF ( when you can actually see it after the rain has washed some of the dirt
TN ( ok Pulkovokiwi - we finally agree on something )
QF ( sorry fellow Kiwis but it is a bloody good livery )
NZ (sorry Pulkovokiwi - I know you hate everything about that airline )
AZ ( if only the airline was even half as good as its livery )
SQ ( i cant believe how many people want to tamper with this )
JM ( may be bankrupt - but those are great Caribbean colours)
Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)

In no particular order:
United (new). Okay, this one is now my favorite.
Canadian airlines (Air Canada should have dumped theirs and kept the goose )
Air Tahiti Nui
Delta (Please, no more changes!)
Quoting Kiwiandrew (Reply 8): JM ( may be bankrupt - but those are great Caribbean colours)
HEY HEY HEY...they are not bankrupt...They are financially insolvent .

Thankfully nobody has waxed poetic about Air Canada's new look. My wife likes it - I hate it. Ugh!
Canadian Pacific orange livery - nice. Pacific Western Airlines was attractive in its simplicity and flow.
Thanks, Kiwiandrew, for the quip about AF. I laughed heartily at that one. There was a great photo posted a while back about dirty AF birds. So true.
Aer Lingus is another nice look.
Has anyone ever seen the Eastern L1011 that was seasonally leased to Air Canada (many years ago) that had the plane metal fuselage, the Eastern colours with the AC maple leaf circle logo? It was an interesting look. If so, is there a pic in the database?

Guess I like the bare metal look

Sort of in order:
1.) US's PSA livery.
2.) Continental (Even if it is more classical.)
3.) US's new livery.
4.) JetBlue (Yes, simple but I enjoy seeing the different tails.)
7.) British Airways
9.) Cathay Pacific
10.) All the Virgin brand liveries (except for Virgin Express) and tied with United's new livery.
Not all of us can be heroes, some of us can only stand on the sidewalk and clap as they go by.

Off the top of my head and in no particular order:
Gulf Air (and their anniversary liveries have to be the best ever on an airliner)
Qatar (though not the new version -- yet!)
Thai (new, sorry Kiwiandrew)
