Found this on Spanair's website:



Anyone know if its their new livery? I for one hope not!

Looks like they might've just quickly doctored an old photo for the sake of corporate identity on their website...? Surely they'll come up with something better than this?

...not that their old livery was particularly exciting!

Yes, that's the new corporate image. There was a voting done between the preferences and that one won... I voted for the other design



There is no such thing as Boeing vs Airbus as the queen of the skies has three engines, winglets and the sweetest nose!

It reminds me of another airline, but can't think of who. LH perhaps? I'm not too keen on the new design, it's a bit bland.

To copy half of LH´s design, which by the way is 21 years old, doesnt make a swan out of a duckling.

Another bland eurowhite scheme, nothing drastically different from the current scheme, why bother changing it?

When the two designs were released I thought the orange would be the better choice because the splash of colour might have been more likely to produce an interesting livery. Unfortunately it has turned out cheap and bland looking.

The other design was much smarter and professional looking but it was boring however I think most people having seen this livery would choose boring but classy over cheap and bland.

Their old livery was simple but I quite liked it. This seems to lack any real thought. Looks more like a logo for an insurance firm rather than an airline.


Come with me, there's a place I want you to see, where the leaves are dark, I've got a hiding place in central park.

I still think this is a possibility, though.... maybe this isn't the finished new livery?

I'm going to be the odd one here, but I actually quite like it.
Its minimalistic and shows the true beauty for actual aircraft.

Hmaburg International? Tail has some similarities...
Also looks a lot like Iberworld as already stated.

Not sure i like it, is very plain and boring.

If so many other airlines didn't have the same "minimalistic" approach, I'd agree. But "Eurowhite" is really, really overworked.

I think that the new logo can be best summed up via this video...

The logo looks OK to me, but the bland basic blue is boring. I would have expected something mucho más picante for Spanair. Just my 2 pesos.


Give me a mile of road and I can take you a mile. Give me a mile of runway and I can show you the world.

Imo, I don't think it looks terrible, but it looks a bit basic, nothing exciting. Definitely not a head-turner for me.

It'd be nice if more airlines could be more creative, and come up with stunning liveries like Boeing have done, with their wonderful dreamliner livery. But I guess there's a cost saving in having a basic livery?

Yes, paint is extremely expensive, plus adds weight and uses more fuel.

Well, it's still a heck of a lot better than their current non-livery. This one is not bad IMHO. Nothing special, but not bad.

White color is needs also painting, so it does not matter if you paint it white or black, you're gonna be using the same amout of paint!

What a disappointment!!! BORING, party of one! I wonder why Spanair could not come up with something more original. It resembles Lufthansa too much, there is only one Lufthansa, why copy-cat?

25 Luke : Boring Logo. Boring Livery. I can't believe people actually get paid to design something like this.
26 EA772LR : I love some of the Euro airlines schemes...BA, VS, LH, KL, IB
27 Cytz_pilot : It's called 'design by committee,' and you can be sure that no one involved in the project is really happy about the result. (I hope...)
28 Post contains links and images OwlEye : Spanair's new livery unveiled on the EC-IPI. This aircraft was previousely painted in full Star Alliance livery: View Large View MediumPhoto © Biel G
29 UK_Dispatcher : I don't like this livery - much prefer the previous two liveries. I wish they had kept some orange.
30 OwlEye : It's very 'Lufthansa'. Maybe that is the purpose... Hasn't LH taken over Spanair lately?
31 TheCheese : It reminds me a bit of Continental's color scheme, especially the blue tail with the orange doohickey on it.
32 Vasu : Boooring! But the LH ownership theory is interesting... it would certainly make sense!
33 Toulouse : I've always rather liked the Spanair livery as well, and much prefer it to this new one.
34 VC10er : I started to comment but fell asleep looking at it. which agency claims credit or are they smart enough not to!
35 Aerokiwi : I actually voted for the orange circle but thought that they would have done an awful lot more with the rest of the livery - ugh! Very reminicsent of
