Has anyone else noticed the ucanny similarity between the new Delta logo and the recently redesigned NW logo, each one with a triangle pointing to 10:00? Hah, a conspiracy!!  Big grin


It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

Yeah plus 9E flying for DL outta ATL...I would never have thought they would ever have flown for DL! Now hoping that Freedom (Mesa) will fail and DL will reallocate the CR9's to EV.

I wonder if a hybird livery between NW and DL will be designed, or if all NW aircraft will be painted into the existing Delta colors.

DL doesn't get to pick if ASA gets CR9s. DL has give to OO and DL's holding company which picks OO or EV.

Do you really think that they didn't know that this would happen when the had the newest livery come out?
DL's livery now will be DL/NW's new livery. No need to do it again because some NW fans on a.net wan t it to be.



yep.

Hey Shamrock, you might be on to something there...looks quite good and captures the essence of both airlines. We have to believe that someone at NW will push DL to have a different livery than the boring (yawn) one they have now. This spices it up a little. Nicely done.

While I do like that livery, I don't think it needs to change, nor do I think any executives at either airline have any thoughts that it should change. There's just no reason to change it. The new airline will stay Delta, and they already started creating a new image for Delta one year ago. They would just be crazy to change it.

The Heilig design is fantastic. Perhaps a little more silver on the fuselage, but even it this was not a DL NW merger issue, it is a striking livery on its own. The uplifted widgets are very postive symbolically.

The only modification I would like to see is a red tail with a blue widget. Just my opinion.

Personally, I think that whatever airline the new Delta/NW Goliath decides for a name... for the love of Pete... they should choose a corporate identity that they currently have. Delta and NW both have done recent re-branding. To re-brand again after that seems to me to be a complete waste. Their fleets are a complete mishmash of radically differently painted airplanes. Whatever name comes out of this, they should just use the existing livery throughout the fleet and save us all the decade of multicolored mess.

I'd have to say, I don't think the flying public cares about "corporate identities" it's really the pleasant surprises that make people want to come back, not how much airlines spend on a logo. In this day and age, an airline logo only reminds passengers how their airline ruined their vacations, made them late to meetings, lost their bags, and/or gave them the big ole' middle finger while scheming of ways to steal their pocket change.

They've already stated that it's going to be Delta. Period. End of story.

IMO The red tail should be adopted for all aircraft and DL's current livery modified to accept it. The arrow on the tail should be moved to the front of the aircraft. Also, from a visibility standpoint the red tail is a good thing.

Petty as it sounds, I think keeping the red tail should have been part of the merger deal.

DL's livery now will be DL/NW's new livery. No need to do it again because some NW fans on a.net wan t it to be.

I'm convinced they knew this would happen since they both filed bankruptcy on the same day just about an hour apart from eachother. No doubt they'll keep everything the way Delta is now, but it would be nice to see a combined livery such as the one UsAir and America West came up with. I'll sure miss the red tails and metallic silver. Not that it matters to anyone outside of a.net.

I would, too. I don't think we would see a new log or livery after this merger. At this point, there are enough different DL liveries that to come up with another at this point would make them look foolish.

As for those that think DL has changed their livery too often, think of this.....How many times has UA changed their livery since the 70's? Just off the top of my head, I'm sure it was more than DL has. I think the difference with DL was that it happened in such a short period of time.
