What airline do you think makes the 747-400 look the best? For me, it would have to be the United. I just love the UA 747-400's. (NC)

United 747-400's are the best looking Jumbos flying. But, the 744 would look the best in Pan Am colors. :0)

UA does have some good looking 747-400's. My favorites are Qantas and Singapore.

United 747-400s are great looking aircraft, I also liked them in the old livery, but to me the BEST looking 747-400 is SAA... when you see that jumbo in person it is just awesome.

I like how Virgin's 747-400 looks in the new livery as well as united's new colors and Singapores beach scheme and Qantas Wunula's Dreaming.

Virgin, British Airways with the Tartan tail, and United all look extremely good.

UA 747 looks awesome, the color scheme is the classiest out there. It's only competition disappeared with BA's old color scheme. I liked BA better than UA. But now, it has to be UA 747's. Sorry BA.

agreed, UAL 744s look awesome in the new colors, as well as all of those mentioned above. i like Northwest's 744s, they just look incredible. i also have to love Canadian's 744s in the "proud wings" colors, with the canadian goose on the tail.

Cathay paints a nice 744. I also like NW, KLM, LH, Malysia & Thai. How about a Lauda Air 747-400? By the way, nice pics Jderden777!

When Air New Zealand was debating which "All Blacks" logo to put on their jets, they were a considering a 747-400 that was solid black with a white feather on the tail. They had some artists renditions of this plane and it looked awesome.

Cathay Pacific and British Airways.

I have always liked Cathays scheme and British Airways just makes it look good with their special tails. My favorite is the 744 in Union Flag and Chelsea Rose. It looks great.

I think Air New Zealand 747-400s look great. Also Lufthansa and Qantas 747-400s looks classy. United and British Airways are alright.
