Rootsair .. yes, that Hyatt trial was not that big an issue.
LAN presented it's new livery earlier last year and now that Canadian airlines comes up with that LAN lookalike livery. I wonder how Falconbridge want's to declare that.

The new LAN livery sucks anyway compared to the old one (which was one of the most beautiful liveries ever in my opinion). It is absolutely beyond me why they changed their complete identity and not only their name (that was actually not a real name change, only the "Chile" dissapeared from the titel).
As for the Canadian airline, looks indeed like a cheap copy of the LAN livery but maybe there is a reason for it.
Quoting OB1504 (reply 3): Maybe the liveries were made by the same designer?
This is possible but I can imagine that LAN would be really pissed when the guy who designed their livery is using almost the same design for another airline.

Indeed, and even more if the guy belongs to a highly-recognized firm such as FutureBrand. I frankly doubt that the Canadian carrier shown in the picture had hired FutureBrand, Landor or Interbrand personnel to design their image...

Quoting LH526 (reply 0): C-FFAL never was in use with LAN ... and yet the liveries look way to simmilar!
We don't know that for sure though. Remember that the regos change and that the airlines -specially when operating aging metal such as the 732 shown- use a wide variety of them (737-204 vs 737-2R8C/Adv).
My guess is that the former operator of C-FFAL was Lan with another registration or that it was prepared for it but was never taken (NTU). I don't believe in the copycat, same designer or same artist thesis.
There are no stupid questions... just stupid people!

I do. The livery on C-FFAL has some slight variations when compared to the LAN livery, such as the location of the red "mustache" on the tail, the way it's been painted differently, and the slightly darker colours (could be lighting, though), so I'm going to lean on the side of a copycat.
