Right now, Delta has three liveries. Have any other airlines been in this situation? If so, which airline(s) and when? Thanks.

Well British Airways sort of is in the same boat:
there's the original speedbird livery from the 80's, (still present on a sizeable portion of the fleet), then there's the "world images" with the different tail designs, and finally the new union flag design (originally on the concorde only, now being applied to the entire fleet).

I think the new union flag design is very very elegant but tending a little toward the dull side. What I think they should do is keep the new design as a corporate standard but also keeping a few of the more successful world image designs, such as the Chelsea Rose (my favorite).

Also, Modesto, since you brought up the Delta livery, I am curious, what is your favorite of the Delta liveries?

Well, right now, Air Canada has four, with the Canadian merger: Air Canada, Air Canada with Canadian titles, old Canadian livery and the goose livery.

Also believe USAir had at least three when it took over Piedmont.

United was in this situation in the 1970s. In the early 70s, they had the mainliner scheme with the red & blue spire on the tail. Then when the 747s came in, out came the Friend Ship scheme, which was the same as mainliner but with four stars on the nose & tail, bigger red stripe underneath the blue window stripe, & (insert airplane name here) Friend Ship midway down. Then in 1974, they introduced the triple cheatline, flying U scheme.

the new union flag livery doesn't count as a seperate livery, as it was part of the world images livery from the very beginning, even if it was only used in the beginning on the concorde.

This topic came up awhile back (I think Tom in MSY brought it up). And not counting hybrid liveries from mergers, and takeovers, or 'special theme/logojets', only 2 other airlines come to mind that had 3 liveries at the same time.
First is USAir. They had the rust colors, the final red and blue, and a couple of experimental liveries (one I know was on a 733, and the other a BAe146) all at the same time.
The other is America West. This one, some of you might dispute. They had (and still have) the burgundy and blue livery and the current orange and green one.
They briefly flew an A320 (I have a pic of it)(during fall of 1996 if memory serves me right) that was all white, and only had the orange America West name on it. No other markings of any kind, other than the Irish "EI" registration.
Would that count as a separate livery?

Republic Airlines had multiple liveries while they were in service. For example, there was the original North Central Livery minus the North Central titles.

Then, there was the main Republic scheme, which was a takeoff on the original North Central Scheme.

Then, there was the final Republic scheme, which looked like a typical livery from the mid-1980's, and looked nothing like the original Republic livery.

Then, there was the Republic scheme prior to the merger with Northwest, which only appeared on the brand new 757s, which were later sold to America West.

-Regular AC scheme
-Iterim AC/CP scheme

-CP circa 1986..eg BA lookalike
