Well, BA has a stylish one. I kinnda like that...
Also, Canadian, with the duck-like bird on their tails is nice too!
Somebody on this forum recently said that Virgin was gonna have their planes repainted in silver and red - that would ROCK!!!
Iberia and most of Middle east carriers prolly need change... Also, there're too many of typical white fuselage paint schemes, which can be boring like AirFrance and Lufthansa (although I like these airlines..).

I think I've said this before, but I'll say it again...
I think that polished aluminum paint schemes are the best, because they are the only ones that allow the intricate beauty that is inherent in the aircraft to show through. I think that the airplane itself, not the paint that's poured onto it, is what is attractive. That said, my favorite is American's polished look with just enough color to add interest. USAir's colors were nice too, when they were largely polished. Just as an aside, too much polished aluminum does not look so good. I have seen 747's that are completely polished except for the words "Northwest Cargo" (I'm pretty sure it was Northwest). That was almost as bad as the planes that are plain white with the airline's name - there's just no interest in monotony.

I like classical airline liveries such as British Airways, Qantas, Air France and particulary Thai Airways.
The majestic Thai Airways livery was created over twenty years ago, under a brief that called for a reflection of Thai heritage in both colour and form. A huge Royal Orchid motif covers the tail fin, in shades of magenta, gold and purple. Thai's distinctive livery incorporates the colours associated with Thailand: the shining gold found in its temples, the magenta of its shimmering silks and the rich purples of its orchids.

I think that Saudi Arabian has the coolest looking livery, especially on their 747-400's!!! It looks so professional, and so neat...it's hard to describe. I think that SW and AA need a liver change (SW more than AA).

It's hard to pick a clear winner... of all the recent livery changes, TWA has been one for the better, while British Airways, Canadian, Transbrasil, Air Pacific, Air New Zealand and Finnair have changed to worse liveries.
I liked the last AirCal colours, and the old and the new (not as much) of Horizon Air. Also, the previous liveries of Canadian, Air Canada, and British Airways, and Cathay Pacific's new colours!
