What Is It You Dislike About A Particular C/s?

With lots of threads on c/s', I keep looking back at some of my favourites and I cant help but think there's something in them that I don't like. For instance:

I just detested that huge black strip extending from the wind-shield down the nose on AI's B742 and B743s. It now looks worse with blue replacing the black. Also the black nose cone (or at least the tip of it) is quite incongruous with today's color schemes. AI went one step further and painted the B744 nose cone tips red!!!

Never did like IC's large black nose cone on the A300s. Nor do I like the small strip of black under the windshield on IC's A320s which remind me more of Hitler's moustache than anything else.

Did not much like the BA World tails (liked the idea and some of the color schemes but not on an airline like BA)

I also thought (strangely) that black nose cones looked cool on DC10s and MD11s. Hence I missed those on TGs MD11s because their DC10-30ERs (since sold) had them and looked terrific.

Air Deccan (new Indian low cost) - their logo looks like two hands held up as if saying "help! help!". The fire incident on their inaugural yesterday did not do much to improve my thoughts on their logo.

So are there such observations from you with regard to your favourite c/s, or things that you do not like about a particular c/s?

What don't I like about the aircraft / c-s? It says "Continental" on it!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I don't like the newest Delta scheme. It's simply too bland. And if the jetbridge is positioned on the #2 door of a 777 or MD-11, the Delta name is hidden. I liked the previous scheme better.

UA's gray and dark blue is too hard to see.

And there's something about WN's canyon blue that just doesn't look right. Maybe I'm too used to the olive drab.
