I like the current one slightly better but this good too. It looks whiter to me but that could be the picture. If Virgin America start flying the two will look like almost the same airline!

Looks like they are using the Virgin America style livery then, only with union jack wing tips.

Not much change seems pretty pointless IMO

Is that official?

Will the fuselage become white or do they stick to the silver and just change the tail?

I can assure you the picture is from inside VS and as far as I am aware not "classified". And fuselage stays silver, font and tail changed.

Sorry, but can't see that much of a change from the current one, although I understand it's not official and is possible to change.

The only change is the font and tail  Smile

Personaly I dont think it is as bad as I thought it would be when it was mentioned  Smile

I still prefer the current tail, or even the "Birthday Girl" tail  Smile

i thought the purple border on the tail added solidity to the image and focussed the eye better. Seems like a retrograde step.

A definate improvement...rid of that out-of-place blue-frame-thing.

The titles also look a bit larger (if the photo is accurate).

Kudos to Virgin for a much improved livery. A simple tweak and it all looks much better...



Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

Is there a chance therefore that other Virgin brands will be modifting there liveries? (virgin blue, express, nigeria etc...)

As i said earlier it matches the new Virgin America livery

I prefer the current one, the purple frame on the tail looks excellent, and the titles are just right.

I was wondering the other day when we could expect a new VS livery.

Well the VIrgin America A320 has that same livery (minus the fake metal fuselage paint ) and looks terrible.

The current livery seems to me more interesting and classier = better.
