Apparently, Mexicana to reveal new livery sometime this
week with one or two aircraft.

They are also have new uniforms for their crews and new
interiors in their aircraft with new seats/colors intergrated
video in Business Class starting in the spring.

Can not wait to see what this great airline has in store and
hope someone takes pictures in Mexico.

I think Mexicana's scheme is still very nice and modern looking. I don't think it needs a change yet. Hopefully Aeromexico will come with a new one next. I like the metal finish, but I think it is time.


Go Delta!

I agree SSspontak,

Both carriers have nice schemes but a change once in a while is good especially when an airline is changing every aspect of their image as it seems Mexicana is doing.

I like changes on Airlines. Makes for good pictures.

About the uniforms, they will be delivered to the f/a crews in the next month, about the new interior, it´s already in the A318´s. same seats, only the wall that separates "Ejecutiva" from Coach change for a dark blue.

Let´s wait the pictures from our good friends of APM.

MX's current color scheme has become a bit boring, IMHO. I'm referring to the way they use it on their aircraft. I do not a think an all new scheme is necessary, maybe only some adjustments. For instance, I really like the colors they us at their ticket offices (the green and the blue) and would like to see something similar applied to their aircraft. I think that scheme looks really classy (the one used on their CTO's).

I liked the multicolor tails from 10 years ago.

And I hope MX's F/A wear the one piece dresses. They look just sexy.

A little color to the engines might help the aircraft look alive. But what I would love to see on MX's metal is schemes like the ones by Frontier or Tikal Jets. I think Mexico has really nice places that would look great on an aircraft.

I always liked the diferent colours they used on their tails and different motifs a few years back. Why did they change from this? Was very classy - pinkish-red, yellow and green i beleive were used. Now it's just the green.

Is that right?

Capt. Rangel (former MXA 727 and A320 FO) told me they stopped painting the planes with different schemes because it was expensive for the company. So they decided to use the green tail scheme as the stantard one.

Rumors say they're going to use blue and green, just like the one's they use in some airport counters.

I hope that the new livery consists of less white than the current one. Also, as someone else said, I hope the engines get some color. In any case, I hope the design of the tail remains because I like it a lot. Should anyone have a sneak peek of the livery, please share it!!!


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

They won't repaint the A318s until they're due for repainting anyway - this does mean that the aircraft will likely be the last in the fleet to move over to the new colourscheme. Repainting them earlier would, as you say, be too expensive.

As for why the A318s were delivered in the soon-to-be-old livery, if Mexicana wasn't ready to unveil a new look they had no choice. Better to launch the new livery properly, when the airline is ready, than to rush it through just to have their most newly-delivered aircraft in it.

Yes, because with a new livery an airline must also renovate their whole decor within their entire system and infrastructure. Otherwise, things start looking a bit tacky and unprofessional.

As Ghost mentions, MX's management has probably had this plan for more than a year, but was weary of the situation that the government was trying to impose on it. Just look at Mexicana.com and you can tell that they have kept the company's corporate image very neutral for the time being.

I admit that when this early current version was adopted in the mid-to-late 90s, I didn't like it! (green wasn't my favorite color, and I prefered some of the other patterns they had used.) However, after they touched it up around 96-97, it started to grow on me, little by little. When I see a whole row of Mexicana planes at Tom Bradley (up to seven all at once) there's a nice warm feeling left in me, like: that's the flag carrier of the country of my origins.   cheerful

My biggest fear is MX and AM being sold, and the buyer will want to change their liveries. What a shame if that happens, specially for Aeromexico, as their livery is one of the best in the world.

Right, most of the designs where hand-painted, also was really expensive to keep them looking good  Sad

Not with MX; actually maybe the new colors are the ones that the "new owner" likes.....  Wink

Ghost:
Hurry up to get the pictures, maybe the aircraft will be F-OHML, was in heavy service last week, it was next to the blue tail 757 in MX´s base.

I've been told that the new livery will have green and blue. Perhaps MX green and Hellmex's blue tone? Dunno! There's an A320 ready in the new livery @ MX's hangars. Perhaps OHML!

As for the blue 57 it's not MX's. That plane belonged to Cameroon Airlines and is now due for another carrier (which I forgot the name right now)!

My good old Ghost77... Why do you do this? You are just giving out bits of information that make me stay put all the time.

Get it all out.


OK, you say, green is out, but what else?

What is it like?

What about the white body and engines?

Any changes on the logo and Brand Name?

And what about the one piece dresses?
