Well I have to say it's alot better than the old one. Painted All silver except for the tail, which is red, with a wavy bottom (it's not red all the way down the tail) wavy red tops on the engine nacelles, and a wavy red line that starts at the nose of the aircraft and works it's way back.

the NWA logo is still on the tail in white and the word NORTHWEST is on the fuselage, I think it was up on the upper deck of the 747-400, in red, I can't remember now exactly where.....it may also have been lower on the body.

What are you talking about?
I´ve heard nothing so far about NW changing its livery that in my opinion is one of the very best around. But what say doesn´t seem to be bad too.

Are they really changing, and were did you see it?

You probably haven't heard about it yet becuase it's not been announced and maybe they won't go through with it. I happened to be in the empolyee cafeteria of the Advertising agency that handles NWA. Sitting on one of the tables in preperation for a meeting was the NWA B744 model with the new livery, along with some new print ads.....

I think you've seen the old fuselage of NW; the way you describe it reminds of that one. But nothing has been stated so far about NW introducing a new logo (not even on nwa.com). Surf: did you see that plane you're describing live or did you see a picture?

No NWA has never used this livery, and what I saw was a B744 model, you know one of those big models that you see sitting travel agency windows. This is a brand new livery. You just haven't heard about it or seen it yet.

It's very likely that Surf is a NW GUY. heeeheee, well, let's go back to the livery thing. I just know that there is an a/c called the World Plane N670US. That'z it. So Surf you've gotta keep us posted for the lastest news about NWA since you are working...there. ^_^ Just another question, is there any NWA 744 run by GE engines? plz drop a line.

so is this a NEW livery or just a single-plane paint job as seen by American (the 757), Air Canada, etc ??

sounds interesting... but I kinda like the grey / red / black....

This may be what it's based on. It's an experimental, one-off scheme from 1995 but it looks kind of nice. To tell you the truth, I will miss the current NWA scheme.

That is, if all this is true!

I personally don't think that NW needs a new livery, but if the new one's good, then...

Obviously Surf doesn't work for NW, unless he likes to bash his own company (highly unlikely), just check out "NW Crappy Meal Service" by Surf, a hotly contested thread from a few weeks back.

I haven't heard a thing about it, but from what Surf said, it seems like it's a fleet-wide thing.

Keep us posted!

P.S...Surf- When you say silver, do you mean silver like it is now, silver like American, or silver like Virgin? Thanks.

That picture is only similar in that the body is either gray or silver and the tail is red, and the Northwest name is on the body is red. This new livery has the wavy "cheat" line and the wavy red tail and the wavy red on the engines. The big red logo in the picture is not part of the new livery.

And yes, this is true, I saw the model up close before the meeting took place. I was getting some breakfast and walked right up to it, looked it over. But like I said, this could just be the Ad Agencies proposal to NWA. Who knows if it every actually makes it onto the planes.

Last I heard from my brother (who works there) NW was doing a campaign with them, possible tie-in, perhaps?

It sounds worse than Delta if the rumors are true.

"Wavy?" I'm not getting a good image of that in my mind.

No this is nothing like Delta, it's all one solid color and the wavy on the tail is just the bottom of the solid red color. It's very nice I think. But unless it goes official, all I can do is give you a description. *shrug* And this is not a rumor!!!!! The model has been painted! It's here in this building! I was one foot away from it!

P.S. Branvan you forgot the G in Fallon McElligot.
