Actually the livery and the pic as well are from a designer called R P Abraham and has been posted at modified airliner photos in august 2007. While I really like that livery I doubt that this is actually going to be AR's new livery. At least I hope they paid R P Abraham some good $$$

Well I wouldn't have much of a problem with it should it become AR's new image; I mean anything from what they have now would probably be an improvement... If anything, I'd change the titles, they seem a bit odd.

How is this airline still able to operate? Reading most of the reviews on airlinequality.com makes it sound like a shocker - Some of the comments suggest people even fear for their safety. One has to question how they even compete on the trans-tasman routes.
I do recall them offering NZ$99.00 business class flights on flightcenter.com a month or so ago from AKL to SYD... They might as well give the tickets away for free!
The new scheme doesn't look to bad on the A340-300, better then it was before at least - wouldn't surprise me if it was fake - how would they be able to fork out the money?

Quoting Maxisno1 (Reply 13): Some of the comments suggest people even fear for their safety.
This is a very misplaced fear given that AR has not suffered a fatal accident since 1970 (and their safety-consciousness has if anything only improved with the years). How many major airlines can boast that?
Quoting TriniA340 (Reply 8): Real or not, I love it!!
I think it's different, very original, simple, artistic, classy and somehow eye-catching for a mostly white livery. Just my opinion.
I wish it really was their new scheme.
