Poor airline liveries are to my opinion:
Camaroon Airlines, Biman Bangladesh, Aces Colombia, Air Caladonie, Air Europa, Air Pacific Fiji, Air Zimbabwe, Ethiopian Airlines, ATA, Binter Canarias, Cayman Airlines, Cubana, DRUK Air, Eurocypria Airlines, Japan Air Commuter, MEA, Nouvelair Tunesie, Volare Airlines, PGA-Portugalia, Polynesian, RIO-SUL, Regional Airlines, Skywest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, TAAG Angola Airlines, TACV Cabo Verde Airlines, Tyrolean etc.

Do you agree?

Delta livery is the best! You can throw AA on that list though, ANA, Alitalia, etc. on. How come SkyWest is on there though? SkyWest is a Delta and United commuter partner, with planes in the UA and DL colours.

I disagree with Aces Columbia, their A320 scheme is pretty sharp

Personally I think that the new BMI (ex British Midland) scheme is dreadful. The last livery was smart - this new one looks effeminate (no offence to the ladies out there)

You can add TWA's OLD liverey to that list. I love their new one, though. Sad to think it may not be around much longer.
Personally, I love AA's and Delta's liveries! Delta's is proffesional, and clean!
And, if AA keeps it's planes shiney and clean, thier planes are a glimmering bullet of beauty.

American's ex-Reno planes look good with the white background, while the polished skin planes are ugly.

And why Air Calédonie? I love their livery! The one used in the late 80's and early 90's on the Caravelle and 737 was the best (with the gold cheatline coming from the Hibiscus)

Why don't you guys get over the worst Liveries that Airlines have and write something positive about them. Like Polynesian airlines Livery is like that at it is a symbol of their Country. The blue wavy lines down the Side represent the Sea which is Crystal Blue, The colours on the tail represent The Sun, sand, trees and people. The Cocnut tree is known all around the Pacific, so in my opinion this is a Very good Livery. Liveries that have meaning are got!!

Dear Jeff,

I'm sorry that I put Skywest on my list. I had still the old scheme in my file. Thanks for updating me.

Although I do not like the polished metal aircraft of AA, with now and than a grey composite piece in between, I cannot say it is one of world's poor schemes.

Aces has good housestyle elements but the aircraft paintscheme and especially their typefacing/layout is not finetuned and balanced yet, I may say at the moment the scheme is "disturbing" for the eyes.

ATA has some elements in its livery which are attractive but the ATA-logo is soo poor and clumsy that it completely spoils the colourscheme and qualifies the scheme as very poor.
