How come that for the last couple of weeks it seems like jetphotos are getting new/important pictures faster than a.net. That bugs me !

Although it looks a bit too plain to me, I like the (desert) sand colour used on the fuselage. It would have been much better if they would keep the green tail the "old" livery has. That would have added more colour to the airline's livery as a whole. Overall this new livery does give PIA a more modern look, even though there is too much white in this livery. It probably looks much better in the sun, this photo doesn't really show the livery at its best because of the rainy grey background.

Regards A388

Because the quality standards are higher here at airliners.net. With most situations this wont matter, but it is inevitable that the more rejections that get dished out from here that some newer shots are going to get to the other sites faster. This is life.

Horrible. It's so plain. Even if they had just left the tail green with PIA writing, it would have looked 10 times better. Oh well, who cares. It's such a crap airline anyway.

I think the new livery looks pretty nice. But as others have mentioned, it does remind me of El Al (and Gulf Air's new livery too).

I really wish that tail was white (PIA) reversed out of their classic green. It looks really bland.

If this is PIAs smart idea of saving painting costs by having a plain white aircraft then Im sorry because this is the limit of nonsense!!!


That green was the symbol of PIA to the world!!! They should have adopted the same livery that they applied on the new CX B 743s when they first arrived with the new shiny green etc. THIS IS JUST PLAIN HORRIBLE!!!

They should have kept some green. Lack of imagination, if you ask me.

Artsyman Picture quality looks as good as many of the rainy/overcast weather photo's that have been accepted at airliners.net, I can dig out loads for you to see, the truth is that many photographers do not like to post at a.net anymore due to the attitude of the administrator/founder.

Obviously you're bothered that "First's" are no more exclusive to this website.

The sand color could be more darker and the engine cowlings(?) too.Plus the tail should be green like theyr previous c/s!!Then it would look a lot smarter.I prefer the B777 over the 340 anytime!Would look great on Finnair's colors i think.  Smile
