yes you are right
i have seen pictures of the ELAL 747's and that kind of paint scheme doesn't fit that big of a plane.
Maybe if they only painted it onto their smaller planes like their 737's, then it might be ok.
But the thing is that ELAL is known already by all the Israeli's of the world as this paint scheme, it is apart of our heritage(I'm Israeli too).

There is a great picture in the New airways magazine. I think the 744 looks great in the new livery. I think the new livery is tight and it looks better on the large planes rather then the small. I think what made the photo look so great as it is so shiny.

Boring, Dull and Unimaginative is what I think of the new El Al scheme, it makes the planes look old and ugly - but I have seen it only on pictures and never seen it in person, so I still have room to change my mind.

The New El Al scheme is one of the few "all white" schemes that have been introduced that I really like. Having the blue/purple - Silver ribbon wrap around the plane makes it unique. I just came back from a trip to Israel (on Air France, very nice B777 to CDG from IAD and then A320 to TLV) and saw the B-767 and B-737-800 in the new scheme. It looks great. I though I wouldn't like it but when put together with the old it is quite impressive. Plus, it features the flag more prominently. As a side note, Tower Air REALLY needs to change there scheme.
