I was never a fan of the pink c/s PSA had on their L1011, great way to make a good lookin' plane ugly.

The most ugliest color scheme is that one of Sun Express, as you want to call it color scheme.

With distance the KLM colorscheme. I get bored about this colorscheme. They have to change their livery, it is to simple. It is hard to talk that way about the own national carrier, but I will not change my oppinion for it.

To me ugly colour schemes are those that are just one of the following;

1. Bland/boring & lack immagination

4. Havn't been changed or altered in years or in some cases decades. They may still be nice in some cases but everything has a lifespan and these carriers just won't acknowledge that reality.

Without doubt the new SAS colours.
The old ones were nothing special, but the new coloursare a complete disaster to me!
I'm sure the Scandinavians could do much better then this, they are normally really good at designing things.

They could improve JMCs design ten flod by just having a white nose. A lot more needs to be done, but painting the nose white would make such a difference!!!

I don't think that nose is part of the normal color scheme. Check pictures of other JMC aircraft. Maybe a borrowed radome?

The ugliest I have seen recently would have to be Virgin Blue.

Tacky, cheap and nasty with their website advertised on the side of its a/c.

I think an Airways magazine article referred to the SAS new livery as looking like that of a hooker's/whore's make up.
