WN Easily Wins Ugliest Aircraft Contest

Yesterday I was early at DTW and enjoyed the gracious NW 757 and A330 planes taxiing. Some other airlines and aircraft slighty interfered the view as at one moment the picture was badly disturbed by a WN 737. The 737 isn't a beaty in itself but with the ugly Southwest livery and the disgusting winglets it's a shame to see them at an airport.         
Or does someone know uglier things? Don't mention the A380 as we haven't seen it live on airports yet.
Edit: can't get the picture in.

I'm saddened to see that your trip through DTW was made worse by some SWA planes.

Those disgusting winglets keep your airfare low, by the way.

The birds with the newer blue livery are not too bad. My vote for Fugly ducklings goes to Miami Air with their generic el cheapo livery. This current livery makes Miami Air planes look dowdy and old.

Exorcist puke pea soup green! One consolation, there is a little jet that circles the half globe on the tail!

This one just looks cheap, like the designer did designs for bowling alleys.

Now this one is simple but, classy looking with the palm tree. This livery proves less can indeed be more!

If it was the mustard colored scheme you're talking about, then I'll agree...  yes 

But if it was the new, blue livery you saw...  irked

 checkmark  I agree. This livery makes the 737 look better than it looks...

It was the musterd. But I have to say I don't see the new blue livery as real stylish. It too screamy IMO. But way better, I'll give you that.

I disagree. I think WN have one a great job with their planes, in regards to looks and mechanical efficiency. They look great, and WN keep some of the best well-maintained a/c there are out there!

just my opinion, WN's colours suck! WN fans, i can see why you like them, but WN's livery is one to be ashamed of!

I also thought WN had the worst looking planes until they added the blue tops. As to mechanical effeciency, I have been on many WN flights and can only remember one delay but never an cancellation because of mechanical difficulties...we were in LAS on our way to TUS. It had to do with the air conditioning unit. It was fixed on the spot.
