DISGUSTING!!!! I wish they'd keep the 733s and the current livery! :-(

do I detect a bit of sourness among the the boeing lovers toward Frontier & their fleet choice?? I like the updated livery, I think it is a bit more corporate than the old Frontier font.

The problem is that the FRONTIER stands out in a very naff way on this livery. I'd wish they reduce the size of the font about 20% and it might look a bit better.  Smile

Really well done!
The billboard lettering will prove an asset for the airline's image. The unadorned, capital letters better suggest the wide open spaces of the west, yet is at the same time it is modern and refreshing. As an aircraft livery, the bold lettering attracts attention but is this is done professionally. These traits are important for an underdog carrier trying to build its company image as "strong and mature".

The color scheme looks great! Way better than the all-white fuselage scheme that seems to be the trend now these days! Laxewrman sums it up pretty well about the open spaces of the West. I know what it's like in wide, wide West, since I'm from Alberta.

Looks like a "flying Billboard", the cursive font prior to this one was nice ...

Not bad, except for the font they used for 'Frontier'. They should have kept a more 'handwriting'-style font, don't you think?

I love Airbuses, but I don't like this livery very much. Looks very cheap.

Nothing special...The billboards aren't bad, but maybe if they had kept the cursive font and just extended it the length of the fuselage, like a signature, that would have been classier.

Looks terrific!

From a graphic-guy-at-heart, this is a good move, but let's see what they do with their corporate image... This looks like a logo change, which is most effective when it is consistently applied (are you listening, Delta?!?)

Does anyone know whether or not the 737s will be repainted into the new livery at their maintenance intervals?

I hate it! They should have kept the current livery on their A319's. This livery is far too simple to think up!

Can we say Braniff all over again? I think the new design is absolutely hideous. However, I am very glad they chose to keep the wildlife tails. I bet the old livery would have looked superb on the new 'buses.

If it aint broke, don't fix it!

Glad that Frontier got rid of their aging 737s and got a new pait scheme but they need to get the cursive back in their name. Other than that its' great to me.

I don't see what's so special about it. Nothing new! I've always liked the variation in tails, those are great, but this new billboard thing is nothing new. Besides Braniff, Pan Am and Avensa have done it before. It's alright. I do agree the font could be just a bit smaller, but looks like they want to be noticed. Commercial arts/graphic design dregree or not I would hardly call this a masterpiece.

PS Airbus has nothing to do with it... even on a 737 this livery would be just ok.

How do my American friends say?
That's my 2 cents?

25 Lindy field : This American friend finds the billboard titles tacky and unappealing. The old lettering was a bit too reminiscent of Alaska Airlines, and the new one
26 JonPaulGeoRngo : >> If it aint broke, don't fix it! Frontier certainly had marketing studies done that demonstrated a need new for revised "Frontier" lettering. Focus
27 Post contains images Ptica2000 : Bravo Frontier I love this scheme
28 Western737 : I still like the old 737-200 better. It looks just right on 737 than on A319's small tail. This probably gain some discouragment on Boeing's decision
29 Srbmod : The new look is very good looking except for the colors of the letters. They should have keep the letters green, they stand out more. As for the 737s,
30 Cliperb777 : A la SABENA....just uglier.
31 Roberson : I agree about green lettering, Srbmod. The thing that's important to me is the plane, though: brand new A-319s. Finally!
32 Post contains images Vincent32 : I really think that it's great too. It really is bold and stands out as ~THE SPIRIT OF THE WEST~ "kudos" (sp?) to Frontier.
33 Picarus : Heinous. It looks like some cheesy livery from a "Bruce Willis saves the world" movie.
34 QantasA330 : One thing about the new livery is the fact that on this particular A319, Frontier has the SAME picture of the wolf on both sides of the A319, unlike t
35 IloveA340 : at first look I thought is was a braniff airbus.
36 AerLingus : Apuneger and CactusA319, If they were to make it cursive, or handwriting style, it would look alot like Alaska Airlines, don't you think?
37 Highliner2 : Ugly
38 Drupyuse : I think that it looks great!. If they have a few different tail designs that would be even better.
