This topic has probably been around for a long time, but I would like to get some feedback from different folks around the world; if you want include the country you are from.
Personally, I like Royal Air Jordan's paint on their aircraft, something majestic about it.

Alitalia; the livery may have been around for a while, but I love the airline and its livery...I think it's because i'm Italian(smile)...plus the green and red looks great on their 747s too.

I must agree with AA777. I DO like BA's livery (don't hit me!). It is unique, and that is what sets BA apart from everyone else...their own identity. Some of the tails look VERY nice, while others, I do not care for. Royal Jordanian's is a very classy looking livery, and UA is okay, too. (UA needs a revision. No gray.--I do like the tail, however) DL's is nice...it's fresh, and new, and DL hasn't gone with the gray and whites like everyone else. AA though, needs a new one, FAST! I was really looking forward to their first 777---not for the operational part---but more for a (hopeful) new livery. US Airways' is nice and professional, however it needs a little more color. VA's new one should be interesting!!! Along with AA, Air France also needs a new livery. The current all white is fine, but the tail is getting old. Aeroflop has some unusual ones...I heard they have something like 20+liveries(?). Air Canada and Canadian are both very nice looking. AC has a very simplistic look, whilst Canadian shows the endangered (and hatable) Canadian Goose. CDN has a REALLY COOL FONT!

It seems that I'm about the only one who thinks this, but I love the American Airlines livery. It is the only one that doesn't mask the inherent beauty and intricacies of the aircraft with paint. It is also very environmentally friendly. American does not need to use caustic chemicals associated with repainting the fleet, which is done periodically, and saves a lot of fuel and emissions by carrying less weight. How anybody who appreciates the appearance of an airplane can dislike the AA colors is beyond me... only AA really lets you look at the airplane. I have heard from some people that they don't like AA's for two main reasons. First, it's old. Second, they don't use the font that all of the other US carriers have switched to. To both of those, I say that what American has works and they don't need to change just because everybody does. The polished aluminum is clean, crisp, and very professional looking. It looks especially good on the DC-10's and 727's, because those airplanes don't have tails made out of composites that must be painted.
