Having a look at it again I can honestly say its probably the most uncreative awful new schemes of this era, Its an all white plane with HORRIBLE huge messy font down its side and thats it.. there is nothing else to it.. What a tragic attempt. Air Finland won battle of the colourschemes.

F F F F .. Four f's on either side of the plane.. Tail, Engine, Engine, wingtip.

... I thought of the ADRIA scheme when I saw this.

I kinda like the tail though and the navy color. Not too bad. A bit boring but it could be worse.

Terrible! I hope they have a rethink! I can't believe anybody would think that this is an improvment on the old livery!

Alright. Why don't we just get it over with and have every airline in the world paint every single plane solid white and merely add the airline's name to it. It feels like that's where we're heading anyway.

This new "livery" (can you call it that?) is one of the worst currently out there! I really hope this is not used, and the rest of the fleet do not get this horrendous make over.

Agree, the fond is quite ok. Engines and tail could be much better though.

Quoting BHXDTW (Reply 4):

It always can, whatever we think. Someone will always come up with something worse.

BUT: me too would prefer to keep the current livery (maybe combined with the new fond but smaller)

Looks comical, in a bad way.

I'll miss the current one. Finnair is an airline that I admire, and it's disappointing that this is the best that they could come up with.

The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

Let's hope it's just an interim solution.
Like painting it cheaply although clearly Finnair, awaiting for the new (better) livery...

Quoting 330lover (Reply 17):

Yes, let us hope so. It lookd exactly that, an interim livery given to the plane before entering service. This was done also when A32S was introduced. A few of them were delivered wearing a strange livery with the old Finnair font and the nose logo transferred to the tail. Is this frame one of the new/old A340s joining AY from AF? Maybe they don't wanna paint it in the old nor the new one just yet, to save some money and came up with something like this for the mean time.. Oh, please let me be right...please....

The current livery isn't exactly exciting but it's smart and tidy and at least has some sort of identity to it. This attempt looks like an interim scheme awaiting the proper livery, surely an airline with Finnair's history could come up with something better than this?!

Hopefully this isn't the finished product but as a start for a new livery I think it looks very promising indeed.

People are saying on Flightforum.fi, a Finnish equivalent for A.net that this livery would indeed be an interim livery so that this ex-AF bird can be taken into use. http://www.flightforum.fi/forum/index.php/topic,96891.20.html

The new livery is supposed to be revealed on the new A330 in the beginning of december. A lot more will be changed then than just the ac livery. meaning uniforms and cabin interiors.

Let's just hope it is so, that this is just a livery for this bird so it can be operated in AY's fleet for the time being!

   What the hell!?    I saw this and I thought Adria... very similar. One thing is having a bland or a boring livery; but having a bland ugly livery is really, really bad. Someone should be shot over this one.   

The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!

I like the idea of the billboard title. But it fails to stand out due to the complete lack of color.
