Not much in my opinion - okay so they've extended the A down the tail, it looks marginally better but it's too similar!

Do the Italians have no creative flair?  Wink

That is awful. Then again so is the whole AZ business so maybe that's what they're going for Silly.

I checked on aviazionecivile.it and not evreryone dislikes it. I really like it, makes the MD look kind of younger. However, without a doubt, I prefer the previous livery...

I think that It'll look much better for sure on the other members of the fleet. Actually, I never liked how the MD looked with the old paint scheme...

Per me va bene, FORZA ALITALIA!

...well, that's great!
here in Italy there's just plenty of newspaper articles describing the catastrophic financial
situation of AZ: the CEO saying "the more we fly, the more we loose", 3 more months
of AZ life expected with current money, ongoing meeting with the Italian government and what's the first outcome?
Substantial reorganization of the company? renewal of the management? The long awaited bankruptcy for a rebirth on a renewed (better) basis?

No, not at all.

Just throwing out some more money with a new paint-job for the 170+ planes.

But, of course, that's Alitalia, a company on the edge of bankruptcy since 1998 whose CEO (Mr. Cimoli) earns 190,375 Euro ($240,000 approx.) a month + benefits, to be compared with AF CEO (30,000 Euro i.e. $38,000), KLM CEO (45,000 Euro i.e. $56,500), or with BA CEO (64,700 i.e. $81,300), in a country (Italy) where a primary school teacher after 20 years of earns 1200 Euro a month.

lol

I'm just glad it's not another ugly all white fuselage with a blue tail and tacky painted engines or something weird. This still looks pretty classic.

but.. BRING BACK THE BLACK NOSE! thanks,

The awful trend still remains the same:
Airlines who really need a better-looking paintscheme don't change them. Those with style, do.  boggled

Sad!

I know some unfortunate owners of shares of Alitalia who will just get very annoyed by this new livery.

First, because in such catastrophic economical situation a new livery is the last thing to do (but many politicians in Italy love the art of cosmetics to keep the things on the apparence up and running, don't they?).

Second because it is not even that nice - it just screams "our airline is not able to change for good, we love the tiny changes that allow the people who have been consuming all the finances so far to just keep doing that until AZ will die and there wil be no responsible person to blame"

Get a grip, and take a brave step forward!

Exactly my thoughts. I was worried that they will come up with some extravagant sh** and destroy one of the best liveries in the market.

The Italians have the best designers. Something that absolutely doesn´t show here. A tired update of a once great, but by now dated livery. The added grey underbelly doesn´t make sense. A chance wasted, and money wasted.
Fitting though to the occasion is that they "launch" this redisign on their most dated aircraft type.

Sorry, but it looks like that the whole livery has slid down the fuselage and the fin. Misplaced.
Alitalia should use others money more wisely.

I honestly couldn't even tell the difference the first time i looked at it.
I wanna see how it looks like on a T7.. before i judge it!


A side not: I personally think this livery here created by Nycfly75 (or one of his friends) looks 100 times better:

It's a sad makeover... _Not even a makeover though...

Right. And that's where I get irked. If this had been the new livery, the people screaming about how a "classic livery has been destroyed" would have been the first to praise the designers. Just because it's a subtle change doesn't mean it's bad. If you dislike it, say so, but don't whine about destroying the best livery in the world when you're just disappointed it's a small change and not the radical makeover we would all have liked. Sorry to sound angry, I'm not, I just find it ironic.

I personally love the new colors, I just think the engines should be white, red, or green, but definitely not grey.

Come on guys...the new livery really doesn't look that bad. Besides, the new scheme really emphasizes the windows. I'm sure management thought AZ wasn't getting as many pax because the old livery gave the illusion that the plane was just a windowless freighter...
