A friend just SMSed me from ITB in Berlin that QR unveiled a new livery at Berlin, not much has changed apparently, they cropped the Antilope on the tail and applied billboard titles. They also dropped "Airways".

The old livery is better - I don't care for oversized tail insignias like this one or the new United "U". I can hardly tell what it's supposed represent. Billboard titles have also always struck me as a bit tacky, lacking elegance.

I do not like the old QR livery.
I find the new one much better, although, for me, it's cheap to put "Qatar" in bold. "Qatari" or "Qatar Air" would have been much better in my opinion. It's as if it's a government aircraft or a logo plane raising awareness of the country of Qatar, rather than an airline.
With regards to the EY livery, I think that there's something missing in there.
I also think that EK should go for a livery change sooner rather than later.
Just my €0.02 worth.

I really liked the old one. But I think in real life the new one will also look good. I dont mind the 'billboard' size letters, unlike some other a.netters. I think it looks nice, takes up some of the otherwise empty space on the fuselage. Guess we'll just have to wait and see how it looks...i'm sure a pic will appear on a.net sooner or later...
25 Stjuard: Not bad... But the old one was more elegant and serious... At least in my eyes
26 Airdolomiti: I agree. I don't think the new livery is that bad per se, but compared to the old one, it's just....gross Federico
27 AirPacific747: I also like the old one better... It seems like those big billboards is the latest trend among every airline. I think it is boring that they all have
28 JoKeR: The lounge looks mighty nice! What a way to travel! Reminds me of the Upper Class section on VS.
29 Johnny: A great new colorscheme!!! I like these huge letters on airplanes!!! (Why does LH have so small letters?!? ) Johnny
30 Aleksandar: No words can express my reaction better. BTW, I heard that this is exactly how JAT 767s are going to look like
