I think it looks very sharp and professional. The titles could be a bit bigger, but overall quite nice. Maybe Aeroflot WANTED a less original scheme as they are trying to overhaul thier ex-Soviet era image. Looking like some of the SkyTeam carriers (the alliance Aeroflot would like to join) goes along way to achieving that goal.

I have to say that although I really like these new colours. I liked the old Soviet ones and the image they gave. Russia's Soviet past is something to be proud of, but, people are desperate to move away from it.
At least Air China still have an authoritarian look about their colour scheme.

It is nice color scheme, but hammer and sackle are still left on it, so I doubt they want to drop old Soviet symbolisms. Somewhere (in this forum) I've seen proposals for new symbol, which included star with wings, eagle, etc. Do you know what happened to these?
B747-4U3, Russia's Soviet past is as much "something to be proud of" as German nazi past is. Soviet Union killed more people than nazi Germany and their methods of torturing and exiling and killing were often even worse. I don't know why some people, especially in western Europe respects Soviet Union, yet at same time they denounces nazi Germany for being cruel. Probably because nazis occupied those nations in western Europe, while Soviets only "some worthless nations from the east"...
