I am disappointed. A cheap looking paintjob with a boring unimaginative advertising slogan on the tail instead of a logo. As if its a truck. See for yourself:

Isn't it a glorified truck with wings and 2 truckers?

Why not just use the regular TG c/s? That's a lovely scheme. Other airlines with cargo subsidiaries do that as well, like KL Cargo, LH Cargo, China Cargo.... odd choice IMHO

When did TG order 777Fs? Or who are they leasing them from? I think it would have looked a lot better with TG's normal livery, but still looks good. It's for a 77L/F not to look good!

Yes. To be precise the tail says "Always deliver the Best".
The thaicargo.com website says "Always deliver the best".
(The differences in capitalization are highlighted in bold. A branding agency would contend there is a difference).

Hmm, it's not horrific but I would have much preferred Thai's passenger scheme. That is one of my favourites.

Thanks

They could have simply had the TG tail only on an all white fuselage and the front part as is.

I totally agree with you on this. Thai Cargo should have used the same tail logo as the passenger division. This livery is very unimaginative. I really hope the TG tail logo will be added soon.

The first de"livery" is certainly not among the Best!

Southern Air. Thats why it has a US registration.

Call me underwhelmed.

Considering how beautiful their passenger livery looks on a 777-200 family plane (or any plane family, for that matter), this is downright dull and boring.

I've seen much worse; it's not an unattractive livery, although clearly not as nice as the pax acft; however, many - if not most - airlines tend to differentiate their pax from cargo acft.

Dont know of any, ANA kept their tail but different look on fuselage, Thai could have done that, who else? China Eastern dont use the Eastern bit, Saudia use billboard style titleing, so do Air India and China Airlines Royal Jordanian, EL AL dont piant livery for certain reason, Cathay Pacific and JAL have bare metal on some full livery on others.

But this is totally different.

Because this is cheaper and because lovely liveries are advertising signs aimed at passengers in other planes and at the gates. Boxes aren't impressed by the lovely scheme of the freighter they fly in.

For the few (admittedly) shippers that will see their planes, this is the perfect livery. Company motto on the tail, web site address in big bold letters on the fuselage. They don't care how pretty the livery is, if anything it would be a distraction.

Well, most other cargo airlines seem to disagree with you when looking at their cargo aircraft paint jobs.

This isn't a Thai aircraft, it is owned and operated by Southern Air. I think it is a great looking scheme, simple yet well designed. Some people are just too hard to please. Besides a livery means nothing except to enthusiasts, especially a cargo airplane

Thats wrong. In almost every company there are people proud of what they work for. Not just blind beancounters. Thank god.

I'm disappointed with this scheme... The "Thai" name only written in relatively small letters as part of a website url doesn't help with company recognition or identification. IMO "Thai" should have been written a lot bigger at least - let's not even mention the tail.

Oh well. Guess we'll have to get used to it anyway. Does TG have more 777F on order? I suppose they'll get the same livery.

25 Max Q : In the 1970's Thai had waht I thought was the most attractive paint scheme out there. It was exotic and quite stunning. Like SQ, they should never hav
26 ATTart : Well I don't think it's crap, I like it!!
