Having a look at it again I can honestly say its probably the most uncreative awful new schemes of this era, Its an all white plane with HORRIBLE huge messy font down its side and thats it.. there is nothing else to it.. What a tragic attempt. Air Finland won battle of the colourschemes.

F F F F .. Four f's on either side of the plane.. Tail, Engine, Engine, wingtip.

Yes, let us hope so. It lookd exactly that, an interim livery given to the plane before entering service. This was done also when A32S was introduced. A few of them were delivered wearing a strange livery with the old Finnair font and the nose logo transferred to the tail. Is this frame one of the new/old A340s joining AY from AF? Maybe they don't wanna paint it in the old nor the new one just yet, to save some money and came up with something like this for the mean time.. Oh, please let me be right...please....

The current livery isn't exactly exciting but it's smart and tidy and at least has some sort of identity to it. This attempt looks like an interim scheme awaiting the proper livery, surely an airline with Finnair's history could come up with something better than this?!

The new livery is supposed to be revealed on the new A330 in the beginning of december. A lot more will be changed then than just the ac livery. meaning uniforms and cabin interiors.


Let's just hope it is so, that this is just a livery for this bird so it can be operated in AY's fleet for the time being!

The font used for the giant characters is very aggressive, and the tail is stupid. Current tails are fine, and if the want larger side letters there are one million fonts that look better

I also find it stupid to make the tiles so big that they are partly hidden by the wings to any potential observer.

Oh shock horror people having an opinion on an AIRLINE livery on an Airline photography website. Why would people say something looks good when it is bland and uncreative. Its basicly a white plane with 4.. 5 Blue F's on it.

lol bit harsh.. seen alot of charter airlines with nicer colours then alot of the so called big boys. I agree finnairs scheme was ok .. if they added another shade of blue to the fuselage or belly something along the lines of what SN Brussels did it would detract from the bland white plane.

Hoping what the guy said above is right and Its interim... I cant believe the FINNAIR board would be proud of something like this or approve it.. not to mention there is no world of the new livery anywhere. It was supposed to be a big deal so im guessing they wouldnt just let it be seen like that.

You're right, and I have no problem with people sharing their views. But when people say such silly things (perhaps not specifically on THIS thread) as "what were you thinking when you came up with with?" and "what a big mistake" (we've all seen such comments on here), one can't help but think WHY changing the livery was a mistake? Will it make people less likely to fly with said airline? And what were they thinking when they came up with it? I can guarantee it was more to do with re-branding than it was to do with making sure a few thousand airline enthusiasts got a stiffy when one of their planes came in to land.

People, people, calm down. You can be sure that when AY will be launching their new livery they are going to make a big fanfare about it - at least here in Finland. Thus I'm inclined to think that this is not the real new livery.

This new livery is horrible. Way too much white especially on the tail where you can notice and what's up with the in your face writing.

I've also never had a problem with the current livery which has a nice blend of colours and in my opinion is one of the best liveries in Europe.

Hopefully AY will rethink this livery and change it to make it look more appealing.

This isn't a livery. Livery suggests design. Design suggests a thought process. This clearly hasn't been thought out.
This looks like a temporary "we're only using the plane for 6 months" scheme.

I hope it is just temporary.

Might be too expensive and I believe Finnair will also be revealing a new cabin product and staff uniform so waiting for their latest A330 delivery makes more sense so they can do this all at one rather than with this ex Air France aircraft.

Absolutely DISGUSTING !!!

Where is the blue (of which Finland is so proud of) ?

Do hope, they'll add some more (blue) colour to the tail - I do like the type of lettering, though...

I hope it's an interim livery ... The billboard titles would be OK if there's a little bit more colour on the tail ... maybe like Thai's livery

I have no idea. I suppose it's better to have some sort of corporate identity on an aircraft than none, but this currently "livery" looks like an "accountants special".

I experienced similar with another client. I designed a colourful livery. It was accepted and the plane sent to the spray shop. What came out of the spray shop was but a shadow of the intended design. Some accountant had gotten hold of the spray shop and ordered them to "simplify" the livery to save on paint and labour costs.

That annoyed me.

I agree. It's something new and I think there's something really nice about it.

That said though, if I was to choose between the old one and this one, I'd take the old one in a heartbeat.

looks nice and fresh, the latter is what a new livery should be. The way most people react in this thread shows it's an acquired taste  

And now for some constructive criticism: the tail could be a bit more different, I basically see too many similar "F" symbols.

I don't know why everyone hates it so much, i find it very beautiful, yes its eurowhite and yes it screams "Adria" but somehow i find it appealing, and from my pov, it looks terrific on that A340.

Hey! Okay, if this is not the final livery but an interim WHY oh WHY did they paint it like this...this is brand suicide... or will this plane go back into paintshop again for finalisation??

It was a great pleasure designing for Air Finland recently. Now my team and I look forward to what the competition has created for Finnair. We're wondering whether the full livery would look that different than the "interim" one as on show at Skyliner-aviation.de...

Air Finland recently re-designed its livery: the sunny "Air Finland" retro logo had to be continued while, at the same time, a stronger "Finland" presentation must be achieved. The old and new livery:

As said, I am quite sure this is indeed an interim paint job, just to get the plane in ops.

But my question is, why go through all that trouble of coming up with "a real interim livery"? By this I mean, usually interim livery is just plain white plane with maybe the logo and name taped somewhere on the fuselage. To come up with something like this, that actually could be a real livery (of really bad taste!), especially only weeks before the company is supposed to reveal their new corporate identity, can harm the company's image seriously. It shows bad judgement from the management, in my opinion.

But if one lives by the rule "any publisicity is good publicity", after reading this thread anyway, Finnair just became World renowned   I don't think any of the people who have participated in this thread will miss the launch of the new corporate livery of Finnair. And everyone will hold their breath thinking: "Was it or was it not an interim livery....!!!"

My bet is, the billboard style titles are part of the new livery, as is the predictable F.
Wouldn't be surprised to see the full livery featuring a clean belly colour, perhaps sweeping up onto the tale. The F on the tail would probably be white in that case.

This topic reminds me of a B747-400F not so long ago!

The livery was well spoken on this forum how ugly it was. Then, few weeks / months later the final livery popped up and everyone was in love!
