This post is based in rumours I've been hearing from a friend that is pilot for MX from some time now... I heard that MX is going to have an image change this december when they renovate their ground station in MEX in T1. Can somebody please elaborate on this? Is it true or is it only a rumour?
I really think MX is now taking some important steps, I can't wait to see their new 762's. On that note, does someone have any cabin pictures of XA-MXC and/or MXE??
I also heard that MX can probably get some used M11's but I guess that's just nonsense...

The MD11 is a beatifull machine, probably my favorite heavy, but I hope MX does not get those things. With the price of fuel, the MDs wouldn't be the best option. Why would they need MD 11s to begin with??? the 767s and/or A330s can reach Europe from MEX's high altitude airport........ Unless they want to go to Asia with a stop somewhere? hum.....

It would be nice to see Mexicana with a nice new livery. Yes the current one is only three years old, but an over all change would be quite nice. I do hope they keep their tail logo ( I would appreciate it if our Mexican friends or people who know Mexicana quite well ) share with us what exactly that design is.

Well I don't think the current Mexicana livery is all that bad, and I wouldn't quite call it amateur. I agree, its not very inspiring, but I think it looks a whole lot better than the previous livery, those different colours on the tail look horrendous!
Now that Amsterdam Airlines livery... THAT is amateur.

The current MX livery looks like that of a charter airline that does a lot of wet-lease operations and is operating for MX. They could easily refresh it without major alterations or downtime (Everything they could do with stickers.). First off, keep the colors as they are. Relocate the Mexicana titles (with a cleaned up font) to above the windows and include a small version of the logo on one end of the titles, and the Mexican flag on the other. Resized the Mexicana logo on the tail so that it fits on the tail, fill in the colors on it and perhaps have some sort of traditional pattern as the background on the tail and on the engine nacelles. On the engine nacelles, put the website address or the MX logo, not both of them (Although perhaps have the MX logo slightly faded on the nacelles and have the website address superimposed over the logo.).

I feel that the latest livery of Mexicana to be very poor especially when compared with the latest Aero Mexico livery. That is sweet! I live here in the mexican capitol of Phoenix AZ, where people are so proud to be Mexican. I find it strange that a nation so proud of itself has two major airlines that do not even carry the colors of the Mexican flag. Using the colors of the flag will surely make a great scheme.

Quoting SXDFC (Reply 10): Here is a Mexicana design I did not to long ago, Id love to know what you think!
It looks sharperr than the current scheme that's for sure, good job!
I prefer strong colors in latin airlines (like in the 70s 80s and 90s). One reason why I also cannot stand the new Aeromexico... it couldn't have been any worse! That one probably won't last too long either.
Aeromexico should have tried to incorporate the Mexican colors, another amateur effort.

I do like the current livery, but it is still missing something that says Mexicana is a Mexican carrier (appart from the name of course). Yet remember, this are all rumours, and I'm waiting for somebody to confirm them.
As for the colors, I do not think they are going back to green, they changed their uniforms some time ago, the new uniform was this one you can see in uniformfreak.com (I'm not sure if I can post these images here if I quote where I got them from) http://www.uniformfreak.com/index2a.html, anyways, you can go into the Mexicana's uniforms and check the 2006-2007 uniform, you can see it here: http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=sWM5hyyw-ss.
This uniforms lasted about one year, and then they changed the green accents into light blue, but the uniform is exactly the same.
Also the cabins were changed into blue and light blue from blue and green.
I would really love to see something that looks classy.

That's a Boeing designed livery and probably with lots of discounts on the AM 787 order which was the reason for the color change at AM. The metal chrome livery of the old AM livery can't be applied to the all-composite 787. I wonder how much compensation AA will get from Boeing once they order the 787 and have to give up their silver livery they have now.
