Not sure if this has been posted here, but I remember there were several discussions about Asiana's new design. Now Asiana confirms new aircraft design. First new colored aircraft will be B777 HL7597 on 26th Oct. And within 5 years, all aircrafts (around 60) will be newly painted. It's cool!

Oops too small to post here.... sorry.

Nice livery! I do not like their current livery!

Can you say 'Beer Can' without sounding like a Jamaican saying 'Bacon'?

I Like that one as much as the old one personally.
Considering their logo isnt up to much, im pleasently surprised by the new look design of the whole colour scheme (i expected worse).


The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only

Looks a lot better than that chocolate milk scheme they have now. WN was wise to get out of the brown airplane business, yick.

Must say that, after seeing the new logo, I was very scared on how the aircraft would look. Am pleasantly surprised by this design.

The current one is better and stands out of the crowd more. I like horizontally divided liveries.
White fuselage, coloured rear section, thats what all are doing currently. The new logo is a step backwards as well. Extremely generic and boring were the old one was unique.

I like it!!

The red upside-down V, or whatever it is, looks like a mistake made by the painters. But the floral-inspired tail is quite eye-catching, even if it is on a Euro-white fuselage.

I think it looks good - I did like the old one, but as a photographer, I always welcome new colours!

The one I'm really waiting for is ANA, which introduced its current livery in 1982, on the 767 and since then, JAL has been through three livery changes. I expect them to launch a new livery on their 787s, though.

i hate their current livery.
but even the upcoming one is not much better. too white fuselage, too confusing tail. I would say it s unremarkable,unnoticeable, easily forgetable.

I like the tail design, but it seems to bear no relation to the fuselage titles/logo whatsoever. I think it might have worked better if they'd extended the grey on the top fuselage, plus a different logo to go with the titles.

Everything before the tail is exceedingly dull - especially the new font for their name: "Times New Boring".

Not sure what the " > " is supposed to be. Ms. Pac Man's lips? An editor's mark indicating "insert real logo here"?

The tail is great, though.

With the red, blue and yellow, I thought it was AV-the tail fin colours are from the Colombian flag! Judgement on new livery reserved until it is seen in person.

Sorry but i do not like this new Asiana livery, maybe because Asiana has kept the old one for such a long time?maybe. I rather Asiana keep the original livery because its formative and it looks a lot better than its new one to be.
