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".

Anyone have some pics?

Hmm, looks pretty good on that A346. Not sure how good it will be on an A320 though.

I wonder if Qatar is leaning toward the A346 over the 777. That color scheme would look pretty good on a 777 or 77W.

I like the current tail treatment over the new one but the billboard titles are nice.

IIRC QR has ordered 20 773ERs

I thought QR was in re-evaluation mode on the long-haul jets.

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.

Looks good, but it follows EK and EY as they also have their name written in huge letters over the fuselage.

You are right, but QR livery is far prettier and appears to exhibit prestige, though I must say that Etihad livery is growing on me as well. Not a fan of EK's colours though.

Seriously, QR livery is just a slight change from the previous scheme which was one of the best out there along with the liveries of SAA and Royal Jordanian.

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.

Lokks like the designers had A380 in their mind. Not bad, just a slight change. I prefer that way of thinking more than complete change of corporate identity.

Now, they may be nice, but nothing is as nice as Royal Jordanian. If you have some argument against it, just say it JoKeR  box   wink

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...
