I don't really like either that much, but the proposed rendition by KFLLCFII is unquestionably the better of the two. As someone suggested in the first thread, the new livery isn't really recognizable as Delta (except for enthusiasts) whereas KFLLCFII's rendition at least looks similar to the old Widget livery.

I'm still not inclined to believe that the "real" new livery was intentionally leaked on the internet a month in advance, for the reasons I mentioned in the first thread. Having said that, I like the fuselage, font, and new color scheme at this point. It's the tail that's the problem.
KFLLCFII's rendition does a much better job with the tail. Take that version, add the 3D widgets from the fuselage to the nacelles (inside and outside, please; they should be visible from the cabin), and maybe make the "DELTA" font a little bolder, and you might just have something. Actually, I'm inclined to think that if what was posted is even close to the final revision, it'll end up being more like what I described than the original model shown was.

DO NOT like the new livery at all. It looks bland and a lot like the new Aeromexico livery...except for the quasi-widget of course. I like the member-generated livery better as well. But I still like the Deltaflot livery more than either one. As far as I'm concerned, if you want a corporate rebranding start with what you are offering your passengers. Not trying to start a whole new topic here but for me it's a simple equation. Continental=Meals in Coach=Fuller planes=Profitable. I flew CO last month IAH-SJU and back and at least received a hot sandwich...and I was glad to have it. I know that the days of full frills on domestic flying are over. But if a small expense like a basic hot sandwich will help fill your planes...then so be it. Give them a hot sandwich! Stop looking for things to take away and give passengers a reason to fly you. Just because you have a large route network is not enough of a reason for a passenger to fly your airline. There are simply more domestic choices. And I have been a Delta Frequent Flyer for MANY years...and now I've found Continental...and I can still get my Delta miles (and don't get me started on Sky Saver vs. Sky Choice!). All I want is for Delta to step up to the plate and show some love for their customers. When I'm flying, it's always 5+ hours and a snack box doesn't cut it. I know that this may not be a popular post, but I'm puttin' it out there. And before the conversation starts, I do understand the cost structure of meals, etc. Sometimes you have to spend a little money to make more...and most airlines today DO NOT understand this concept.
