Given that Southwest's new colors are so unpopular among airliners.net members here, I wonder if it's the case within the general public? I hope not, really. But Sun Country's livery seems to be favoured, and I can't argue with that - I like that livery, too.
I'm not afraid to admit that I'm in the minority who likes Southwest's new colors. If there's anybody here in airliners.net who likes WN's colors, don't be afraid either to post your views here!

I like it alot better than DL's scheme. Atleast it doesn't look plain and empty on the fusalage like on DL's 777. The new delta Scheme looks great on a narrow body like a 737-800 but looks plain and boring on a 777. Same thing like I said awhile back about PAN AM when they went with the billboard logo. The jumbo PAN AM looked great on their 727-200 and PA 2's 737-400 right before they had gone under in 1998 but looked plain and boring especially with too much white space on their 747 fleet in the 1980s and early 1990s.

I like it too. If only we can see it in Canada though. I like the fact that there's no white--anywhere! Red and blue go together. The tan colour, well, it's better than making it grey or white. And the orange at the tail makes it look like the old paint job a bit. It's pretty.

The new livery is a vast improvement.
The old scheme couldn't have been more Seventies - very dated and tired looking, the combination of colours was awful. The new scheme has a fresh, bright look which the old one just didn't have.

Well, at first I thought it was awful. But after seeing a DECENT picture of it, it's actually pretty good. The bottom border between the blue and the red section is not straight- it doesn't run parallel to the bottom of the belly. Rather, it's curved and swept. I think it is okay. I would give it a b-.
The new leather seats are, however, hideous. Blue and Yellow? Uh, no thanks. Maybe they are comfortable, and that might make up for their 'only a mother could love' looks. And maybe they look better in person.
Did you also know that they now have brushed aluminum trim pieces? That might be interesting...

I like it. It's nice to see planes with little or no white on them, only color.
The blue looks classy with the red. I think it is a lot better than the old scheme, that looked like a scheme from the 60's. "Baby crap" that's good!!

I am starting to like it better after seeing the larger picture. However I would like to see it in person to make my final judgement. I do have to say the blue is much better then that brown color but I think it looks more obvious that there is no title on the fusulage with the darker color which makes it look incomplete to me. I'm sure they could have done something a lot better

I HATE it! Honestly, in the past decade, pretty much every swingin' airline in the world (with the exceptions of QF, JAL, AF, AA) has changed their livery, mostly for the better (then again, I love Deltaflot.) Honestly, WN has kept theirs, and I like it. I don't think that Blue and Orange go well together, so I hate it. What's next, they'll be the official airline of the New York Knicks (looks just like their colors). Oh well.

Personally I think it's great. It looks fine to my eye, I quite like it. And it's very similar to their well-recognized old livery, so while it maintains the value of their existing brand-image, it gets rid of the ugliness that went along with it. In terms of marketing it's very good- it keeps the good things that went along with the old livery, while getting rid of the bad aspects. What better could you ask for?
