OW livery looks good on the revised QF livery on OEB.

Finally Oneworld decides to introduce a livery.

Glad finally Qantas joined the rest of them that have introduced them. Hopefully i can see them shortly in real life!!  Smile

Each OW airline will do the same. That is part of the design, large OW titles, with the words 'member of' above and the name of each airline below.

Nice shot just a pity it's not uploaded at 1600 or 1800 pixels.

QF are hopelessly slack at updating their livery on their longhaul fleet. 1 x 744 repainted in over a year now.

That OW livery looks good. It would be great to see VH-OEB being pictured alongside G-CIVP. The BA equvalent.  Wink


In my eyes the Boeing 747 will ALWAYS be the queen of the skies!

Nice to see one more Oneworld livery jet - except perhaps the front half of this plane seems to be overly "busy"... at least, that's how it looks to me from the pic.

There are 2 oneworld jets apparently, both 744's.

Would be great to see the QF one come to LHR, I don't think I have seen the livery one their 744's here, but I guess if that's the only one, that might be why.

VH-OEB is a "pacific" configured aircraft so would be unlikely to visit LHR

I think one is the 747-48E, the other an A330.

Wow... that livery is such a... well... non-event...  yawn 

So they put "oneworld" where they usually put Qantas - and moved the Qantas down a bit... not really impressing, most passengers will probably barely, if at all, notice the difference.



Smile - it confuses people!

I know you said unlikely but it has visited LHR before so not impossible at least.

Yes i know it is part of the design but on BA and Qantas it doesnt look that great whereas i think on Finnair and Iberia it looks really nice! Well the one on the E-190 doesnt look very nice, i like the A319 and the A340 where the finnair titles are above the OW titles and they have the OW members tails on the rear of the fuselage!

Wouldnt it be great to see a Qantas OW A380 (if only)

The previous AY jets you mentioned, with the OW member tails are not the official OW design. The design applied to BA/IB/QF/AY jets over the past few weeks is now the official OW design.

And in my opinion it looks even worse on QF than does on BA. Shame...

I have yet to make a travel arrangement based on the paint scheme of an airline. Quality, safety, value, convenience, reputation, self experience yes. But paint job no.

Not sure about the OW alliance, but AFAIK, it's for Star Alliance members, and they paint the number of jets equivalent to 2% of their total seat count. Correct me if I'm wrong.


25 Na : Graphically it looks better than on BAs 744, but the odd Oneworld purple doesnt go well with the Qantas colours. If they would have made the Oneworld-
26 LHR380 : And why say that?
27 EK413 : Taking into account the headaches QF have been experiencing with the 3 A380's in service I am not surprised... EK413
28 Psimpson : I was at LHR yesterday 28 February and saw 3 BA B747-400s depart with ONE WORLD titles G-BNLI, G-CIVI and G-CIVP.
29 QF744ER : -OJK had a repaint in cira 2003 and at least carrieds the newer 'Spirit of Australia' titles. Have a look at -OJA, OJG, OJH, OJS-OJU they all still ca
30 MarcoPoloWorld : Yap, saw it today at SFO.
