The other odd feature of the new OS livery is the shadow under the new logo, which doesn't lend itself to the fuselage of a plane as well as the Wrigley's gum logo of the past. And yes, that blue is bad when juxtaposed with the bright red. Ugh -- of course Austrian has always been allowed to run amok with the colors. See a flight attendant if you need more evidence of that.

I can't believe you guys don't like the Austrian colors. I may be biased, but just because an airplane has blue on it doesn't mean it's ugly. Also, I hate to break it to you guys, but blue and red do actually go together. Anyway, regardless of whether you like the new paint job, it's always exciting to see an airplane in new colors (like the jetBlue E190).
