I came across this article with pics of Qatar Airways new look with some pictures of a mock up its first class lounge aboard their Airbus A340-600. They have yet to receive any of course, but we can all look forwards to seeing the new colours appear soon.
Have any aircraft been seen in these new colours yet? Does anyone know which will be the first to be painted and which model?

Im not that impressed. Whats the difference? Made Qatar tiles and onyx oversised. You cant even see clearly what the Onyx logo is now, its just a big burgandy blob. It didnt need changed. I prefer the old one.
I agree. Has anyone noticed that the head is an exact enlargement of the original one.
The face was originally much longer, one continuous arch from the top of the horn to the mouth. Now the mouth is separate.
Now that you only see the start of the horns it makes it unrecognisable as an Oryx.
I don't know how many of you have seen the "Alien" trilogy of films but the Oryx now looks like one of the nasty aliens!! Sorry!

QR is not profitable????
But they are ordering a/c like crazy, changing their livery for no apparent reason (not a drastic change), and for some reason I have grown to consider them among the Emirates' of the world....lol
BTW- I like the new livery, it's a nice update, so perhaps new livery is not the right term!! The old one was great as well.
