Hey, guys. I figured that there should be a second thread about Delta’s new livery seeing as the old one made it past 320 replies, and was starting to take forever to load.

In short, this is the new livery, as seen on a 1/50 scale model of a Boeing 767-300:

This is a rendition of the livery on the Boeing 737-800, created by member Concord977:


On the Boeing 777-200, created by member MP:

And finally, this is a proposed change created by member KFLLCFII, which seems to be liked by the majority of the posters in the previous thread, myself included:

I think I like the proposed change better, because the widget is displayed upright, rather than tilted.

I definately like that rendition. i would like to see the widget back on the tail, but the way they want to do it is horrible. plus, the colors dont stand out too much on the tail IMO.

The "Tipped" Widget looks too "cool for school". What do we do now, tip the widget on all the pilot wings and ticket counters?

I'd like to see something other than blue on the engine cowls too...maybe keep the current red/blue/grey?

New livery = Swing and a miss.

The altered widget on Bryan's jet looks like a salvageable recovery though.

I still don't like it but I could learn to like it better if the widget is upright as suggested above.

Will the creator of the upright widget send this rendering to someone who cares in ATL?

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.

I really don't see that. I see a retro scheme.

Does anyone know which planes will get it first?

148 LTU932 : PERFECT! Excellent colouring, as close to the colours of the original widget, and the concept overall is much better.
149 DeltaDC9 : Actually no. In all my years flying on various Delta DC-9s and in and out of ORD and ATL since the late 60s, I never actually saw one. So it seems th
150 Post contains images JuniorSpotter : Okay, so the front widget on my second proposal might have been a bit too much. So what if we kept the silver belly, and the two coloured stripes, but
151 Post contains links and images LTU932 : Try to add the words "DELTA" to the bottom of the blue part of the widget, like with the original widget colours. Then it will be perfect. View Large
152 Neednewairport : Red, white and blue, how boring ... too patriotic IMHO. Looks a lot like USAirways new paint job.....

155 OB1504 : Personally, I don't like Graphic's proposal for a new DL livery because of the blue streak of color leading up to the widget in the front. JuniorSpott
156 Floridaflyboy : Just my opinion on that. I think the word Delta on the widget like that was one of the things that detracted from the original widget paint job. I th

159 CV880 : Keep the Widget upright, the other reminds me of CP Air, or is DL merging with AC?
160 RJ777 : I have an idea- how about having Delta release 3 proposed liveries and have customers VOTE!?
161 SEAdomer787 : And their old schemes weren't?? I think this is exactly what Delta is after... to establish itself as a flagship American international carrier that
162 FFlyer : Two topics, so many comments... Has anybody else noticed that the proposed widget points Northwest?!
163 PlanesNTrains : Heaven forbid. Actually, it looks a lot like Delta's old paint jobs, which was the point. If US wants to adopt the colors long associated with Delta,
164 Halcyon : Well thanks so much. It they have to change their colors to something more businesslike, if at all, that is what they should use!
165 RJ777 : Funny how they ENTER bankruptcy at the same time, and they both EXIT at around the same time! DL and NW seem to be joined at the hip (or in this case
166 Viscount724 : 7 or 8 years. Delivered 1965/66 and sold 1973.
167 Post contains images Floridaflyboy : I believe Deltaflot and Wavy Gravy were in reference to the same paint scheme. , but I like your thinking for the name for the new one.
168 Post contains images LTU932 : Correct. The name "Deltaflot" comes from the Wavy Gravy colours having a little resemblence to the colourscheme SU used on their T7s.

178 MIAMIx707 : This reminds me of Canadian for some reason. Again this is another of those white / depressing dull blue liveries with only the bottom of the fuselage
179 RedTailDTW : Now that I have seen this photo Im starting to realize that this livery actually isnt too bad, but I still think they need to liven up the front end.
180 Post contains images CALeeIII : Here it is. Be kind...it was a rush job. And, actually seeing it this way, I appreciate the new design as it is even more.
181 Xkorpyoh : for a more striking modern look modify the new livery: 1- Turn the white fuselage to Silver/mettalic paint (like NW & VS) 2- Billboard DELTA in a diff
182 Post contains images Deltadude8 : CALeeIII could you do one with juniorspotters livery...
183 DL777LAX : Hmm... i'm liking DL's in house a bit better, the tail looks too busy, with it upright. It also looks alot like a lot of the Ron Allens lined up.
184 Floridaflyboy : Yep. Just one lousy cheatline. Even a thin one would make this whole thing look worlds better.
185 Post contains images Alitalia744 : How about a slight tweak to the colors?
186 Mah584jr : I like your thinking, but I don't think many Delta customers care what the paint job looks like. Only us enthusiasts really take pride in liveries.

189 Post contains images JuniorSpotter : Okay, here we go...an MD88 with my proposed livery. Didn't get the font quite alright, but since the other ones sucked too...oh well.
190 Milesrich : Junior Spotter, even Ron Allen wouldn't choose something that abominable.
191 DAYflyer : An absolutely horid livery. So drab. I like the wavy gravy or the retro livery much better. I certainly hope this is not a done deal.
