Thanks for posting that! I saw the A340 at HEL and was very surprised as I had not heard any plans of this being done. And that comes as news as well, that there is an A319 in the same livery! Any pic of that anywhere available? Anyway really cool and stylish livery, me thinks  Smile

It looks strikingly similar to the livery used by LAN Argentina, but quite different to the JAL one.

Wonder if there are any special "oneworld livery" rules?


The livery looks very good on Finnair colours, unfortunately the same cannot be said about the LA / oneworld livery. The LA tail just doesn´t blend with the totally white aft fuselage.

When will AA have a oneworld livery plane? The purple letters on bare metal might look very good. Or would AA acually paint a plane white, with bare skin on the vertical stabilizer?

Good one ,)

This is perhaps the best pic of the *OW on AY* pics I've seen so far (roll down):

It seems it's hard to make these OW liveries to work, not sure what to think about this JAL version...

Theres already an airline called Iberworld (charter part owned by IB) so we'll have to make do with Oneria, although sounds no where near as good. Big grin

I would like to see all OneWorld airlines have at least one a/c in OW livery. I think it would help show the world who the Oneworld airlines are and also show the togetherness of the airline

I think that every alliance should have a specific colors that are to be applied to logo jets ala the star alliance livery. I think for one world it should be the JA has and ive never seen one for sky team.

Just my  twocents

Its about time! I've often wondered why OW hasn't been as aggresive with their marketing as Star has (or so it seems to me.)

I think the liveries are boring...wish they were more dynamic (but glad to see something).

Iberworld is part of the Orizonia group and not part of the Iberia group.

But what are one world colors?..

I mean with the star alliance colors being uniform across the board i think it looks more professional and team looking which is basically what an alliance is..

You wont see a team in the NBA with everybody wearing whatever they want.

Striking! Luvs it!  praise 

I actually really do not care for OneWorld (only a couple of their carriers appeal to me), but I really do believe that they have done right with these alliance schemes!!! I hope that when Iberia does theirs, they paint the OW name in a red/orange/or yellow color to match as beautifully as the LAN and Finnair liveries do!

Once again, lovely job! Congrats Finn!!!

Not much fantasy here, - a complete "takeover" from staralliance.
But nice and clean to Finnair livery anyway.

I think they could have been a bit braver. This cocktail just happens to look good on Finnair because the corporate colours match, but in no way, from an identity and branding point of view will -should- they be changing the oneworld livery to match the, for example, red and orange colours of the IB colour scheme. And what kind of mess will it look like on AA?

I am not impressed at this job. IMHO, it takes away the power of the airline's logo and does not enforce the alliance brand. It is just a confusing mix-up. If they want to build brand awareness they should do like Star Alliance and create a unique design for the entire plane (fuselage and tail), giving a secondary space for the airline's brand and logo.

This is no livery -- its just big ONEWORLD titles added to their already (dull) all-white plane.

What's so special about it?
