Wasn´t today the day Northwest wanted to launch the new nwa-look and livery?
It´s late in the morning in the US East already, nothing has been broadcasted so far so is this launch a gala evening event?

I'm really starting to like the livery, but not on the 753. I really think it's just an awkward looking plane, and pretty much any livery on it looks strange.

Can't wait to see it on the 744 and 319 today!

don`t like the new livery, couldn`t they painted the engines black or red, at least something better than that.

The website hasn't changed at all and there isn't anything readily posted on the homepage about the color scheme change. Maybe this isn't the "official" date yet. Like any radical change, I'm sure it will grow on me over time.

Braniff, I think it would look worse on a plane like the DC-10 or 747. The length of the 757 combined with its relatively narrow height make for a nice clean long line, and the solid silver color looks very elegant...I'd call it the Silver Bullet. I think it would just look too plain on a 747, but that's just me.

I guess the livery will look better on bigger (fatter) aircraft. The new livery clearly shows what a bloody ugly bird the 757-300 is.

The 744 looks really good! I noticed that the KLM / NWA sticker on it also has the new logo.

Fitting that the first 744 painted is the first one delivered!

Unfortunately, it's a mirror image of the left side (well, not quite... obviously the letters aren't backwards). I'm surprised, because it means the "compass" graphic element points northeast on the right side... my theory is that this comes along with Northwest's shift to building the "NWA" brand... they're beginning to de-emphasize any geographical connotation that comes with their name and brand, and are looking to build a more globally-conducive identity. Thus, it is less important that the compass arrow point in any particular direction. If I were to speculate, I would think somewhere down the road, the "Northwest Airlines" text under the NWA on the livery might eventually disappear, or perhaps NWA will come to mean "North World Airlines" or "New World Airlines" (highly doubtful).

Very interesting... (as a marketing person, I love branding).
