You're right, it does look better than the Mad Dog they painted in it. There are some liveries that seem to suit some a/c types better than others. I guess with the new location of the green stripe needs a wider canvas so to speak for it to look right.

I'm with LTU932. It seems that whoever did this makeover of the livery just took an old idea and applied it to the revised Alitalia logo. The old livery was classic and elegant. This looks cheap...and old. I've seen this livery option since 1999.
This is not a new idea...just someone with nothing to do in a position to change something that has no business being changed.

Quoting LTU932 (Reply 3): I still don't like the new colours. The old ones are much better, especially with the cheatline on the windows and not below them.
To tell the truth, I still don't get it.
What is the point for a bankrupt airline to repaint ac in nearly the same livery???
Surely the money could have been used for something else.
Or a completely new livery could have signaled a reborn Alitalia.

Alitalia had a timeless, beautiful livery that could have stood the test of time for as long as the airline could potentially stay alive.
This piece of crap that they've plonked on seems to have been done by a bargain basement designer with Eurotrash credentials. A country like Italy that is so synonymous with style and good taste could have done so much better than this nonsense.

Yeah, the first photos wasn't that fair, angle and light wasn't that good, I'm sure with the time the majority will like this livery (if only AZ becomes a profitable airline...), you need the right angle may be but it sure is a beauty.

Not only the "new" livery does not tell me much (if we can call it "new" at all), but mainly, who had the unjustifiable idea of spending badly money in superfluous face-lift that could have waited until the new Management Team of AZ will be ready?
Clearly and sadly, somebody there has trouble defining priorities...
