Dear all, thanks for your critical replies and thumbs ups.
For Swissair I have something nice in mind for since a year. It almost looks military (very sturdy) with a lot of grey, ton-sur-ton cross things and just minor red. Be continued...

I think the combined American Airlines "AA" and TWA globe looks excellent. I think it would very well for them. However, I don't think it fits American's current color scheme. Maybe with a different livery, it would fit better.
Both SwissWings liveries are fantastic. I especially like the gray one. The cross with the wing on it was a superb touch.
The Iberia livery could use some more work. I think it's better than their current livery though, of which I am not a big fan.
Excellent job on the liveries, you definitely have a lot of talent.

I HATE the new AA design. Sorry, you made a great effort, but it's not to my liking.
I like the Red/Grey SwissWings, and the new Iberia actually looks quite good!
An idea for the AA design, maybe if you put the globes and AA symbol in fromt of the engines, and made them large?? Just a thought.

Singapore_Air where do you see a Swiss paint scheme? You must be talking about SwissWings. Anything and I mean anything is better than the current one. I made a post with a picture of it a few weeks ago. The title was "Air Engiandina Is Dead! Welcome SwissWings" or something like that.
My guess is that the AA is actually meant to be silver!

I like the AA/TWA combination very much. What I would like to see is more color in AA's c/s tho. Utilizing the same colors they have now, but either the red or blue or both colors the dominant ones in the scheme. Go Double-A's!!

Oh man I love the paint scheme on the AA 777. Air OrangeThank you for listening to me about deteting the TWA and putting AA. The globe is much stronger and it makes the AA stand out more. But could you make the tail logo a bit larger along with the other logo on the fusalage? It'll look even better. I love the Iberia. It looks much better than the older one.

For someone who's never designed a website before, you've really done a bang-up job. It's tight, communicates your information very effectively and presents a unified appearance. The loading's a bit slow for me, but there's nothing that can be done about that, since I'm in the U.S.. Still, some of the kids around here could learn a thing or two from your site.
Your designs are very professional, and I really hope that some of these companies take your suggestions into account.
I like the logo redesign you did for American--the incorporation of the old TWA double-globe was very creative. It'd be nice, though, if you could enlarge the logo on the main body and the corresponding "American Airlines"--I doubt that anyone would be able to read it if they saw that aircraft at an airport today. Also, moving the stripes down is an interesting change, but I think a new American scheme would have to incorporate more of a change in these stripes...perhaps a "wavy" form down the body?
The yellow in the SwissWings scheme is a very daring choice, considering that the trend in paint scheme designs lately seems to be away from bright colors and towards more drab choices (like the grey and red SwissWings model) or the plain, European white schemes. Personally, I like your scheme better than the red and grey one (reminds me too much of Northwest), but I think that a better choice as far as color would be to make the yellow more an orange-yellow (perhaps butternut yellow?). That way, in my opinion, the yellow would blend with the red better in order to make a more unified scheme. Alternatively, you could make the tail this orange-yellow color and keep the body in the present yellow, giving a gradation from red to yellow as you go forward on the body of the aircraft.
Honestly, I didn't particularly care for your Iberia scheme...it seems to me, anyway, that if they went with that one, it'd be a step down from their current livery. It just seems to me that the grey makes the scheme look way too drab...the nice thing about Iberia's current scheme is that it's bright and eye-catching, although I do think that they need a new one. I did, however, like the way you eliminated the "IB" logo on the tail in favor of the crown, and how you spaced out the "I B E R I A" name towards the middle of the body. Those are good changes that Iberia should incorporate into their new scheme, in my opinion.
Would you consider doing a scheme for the renamed Canada 3000? I believe you posted something about that near the end of the C3 rebranding thread...again, if you didn't see it, here's my take on what the scheme might look like:
I don't have the benefit of professional design programs, images, and the like, so I just drew it up in about 15 minutes. My comments on the other thread go into greater detail on it, but basically, colors can be changed around to suit the image that the airline is trying to project. I chose "Royal Canadian Airways", because a lot of people (including myself) thought it sounded very good, but C3 could be anything, including remaining as Canada 3000. I'd be very interested in seeing your take on a new scheme for this carrier.
