British Airways livery (late 80's to mid 90's) because of its elegance and beauty. Classical indeed and it would still work if modernised a little bit.

I had a few fantastic flights on this airline, especially I remember a flight from BRU to ATL in the year 1999 with the (at that time) brand new A 330-200. During the whole flight I was looking forward to my connecting flight to SFO on DL and to my stay in the USA. I did not get disappointed, I spent three fantastic weeks in California.

2. National Airlines:

Great airline with friendly F/A's and good service. I flew on them LAX-LAS in the year 2000, during the flight I was looking forward to drinking and gambling in Vegas, when I flew LAS-LAX three days later I was happy to be back in LA, the few days in Vegas almost killed me because of too much alcohol Big grin.

I too miss Caledonian, and Peach Air.

Flew a couple of times with Peach Air. They were ok, just like Caledonian in fact, and I am sure I remember them spraying peach air freshner through the cabin after the doors had closed!

Scandinavian old colors because the first of my most memorable flights were on that airline in that livery.

BA Landor color scheme - very classy, very British, commanded respect even as others demanded respect.

Although I never saw it in person, there's just some classic beauty, dignity and elegance to this livery. I'd say a timelessness too, but for that to happen I think that the font would have to be different. Although I'm a fan of the grey and blue, it's just doesn't have the elegance befitting an a/c.

Definitely the BA 'landor' colour scheme. Why? Because it was stylish and classy.

although i am partial to the polished metal look over any paint job, i am very fond of the scheme used by braniff in the in the 60's, 70's and 80's. the flying colors scheme was great. orange, brown, yellow, red, purple, green, black, probably more were used. there was the original scheme and a couple of modifications followed.

as a young kid, we had favorite "colors". we'd speculate for months what color our aircraft would be on our next trip to dallas.

my favorite was the cobalt-blue "ultra" scheme.




Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

I miss Ansett Australia the most. They had some great liveries over their sixty year history.Although I am biased after working for them for 15years.

How about TWA. And their last livery was very sharp.

I miss seeing the Air UK colours, they looked cool on the F-100.

Also Ambassador for its cheesy charter colourscheme.
