So we can view it backwards through a mirror? Excellent.

Think it means reverse as in orange fuselage, white tail!

I bet it will be orange with white titles. I think we've seen this before on some 737s.

Oh I see, inverted colours.. I assumed it meant (jokingly, of course) that they were applying the titles backwards..

Should be interesting to see.. perhaps a bit like the old Helvetic livery.

They've never done this before, as far as I can remember...

Sure am looking forward to seeing it!

Sounds like what AirAsia did, albeit on a temporary basis.

I drew something up a while back as a "wouldn't it be interesting if.." concept. Little did I know they'ed actually do it!

Can't wait to see it (if it's true) and fly on it. I think this may be the 200th a/c in the fleet, perhaps why the special scheme?

Not really "inverted" more like a negative?

I believe this livery was on a 737-400 first. I always liked the looks of it.

Which, in the case of Alaska's black & white livery, basically comes down to the same thing  

For easyJet, a negative image of white & orange, would render a black fuselage with light-blue titles. I expect them to really invert the scheme, and paint the fuselage orange.

I envisioned them upside down. No, seriously... Then I thought it over a bit more.

I think that they should do this with all aircraft. It'll make them easy to spot at a distance, which is better marketing.

Isn't orange paint heavier than white paint?

And for sure it's warmer, which increases maintenance costs. And it's more difficult / expensive, when leasing temporary aircraft, to give them a similar look.

Oh my...         

Can't wait for a picture--I'm generally a fan of inverted schemes and while I'm not crazy about EasyJet's livery at all, an orange Airbus will be fun.

Should look great. There are actually Easyjet published renders from about 5 years ago of an A319 in silver colours.


Proud to fly from Manchester!
25 as739x : Correct. N774AS first wore the livery.
26 Giancavia : To bad they cant do it with the whole fleet, In a kind of Jet blue style... random Orange liveries, Because im so bored .. oh so bored at Luton.
27 laca773 : I like this very much. Thanks for posting. Great work! This is one of my favorite AS liveries.
28 photoshooter : I think the new livery would be better but it will cost more money, I don't know if a LCC like U2 would like that... There's no doubt that this livery
29 AeroWesty : Heh. Loved that one. I even bought the plastic model. And I don't know, but at first I thought the EasyJet plane would look horrid, but this drawing
30 OzarkD9S : It was sharp, actually got to fly on it DCA-STL once!
31 Post contains links and images BasilFawlty : Found on the Aviation Friends Hamburg forum: A white tail with orange titles would have been nicer in my view.
32 Post contains images srbmod : That livery reminds me of of the various liveries the short-lived US ULCC SkyBus used: You definitely cannot say that this a/c won't stand out at any
33 jetmatt777 : Looks like SkyBus on first glance.

36 deltamartin : Must agree. But i still find it a nice idea from easyJet's side.
37 Vasu : Phew! At least this slightly aids the monotony of seeing EZY after EZY after EZY in the skies over the UK!
38 gt4ezy : I agree, white tail and engines would have been nicer but a nice change non the less. I do actually think that the "main" livery is the more "classier
39 A388 : Nice orange livery!!! On which routes will this orange aircraft be used on (initially)? A388[Edited 2011-05-07 17:16:14]
40 BasilFawlty : Will rotate through the whole network, just like all other A319's and A320's, nothing special.
41 hotplane : Being delivered to LGW but could move to another base.
42 ba319-131 : Should be reg as G-EZUI - won't be hard to miss OTT!
43 gt4ezy : Should get an idea of where it will be operating in the next week or two when AIMs is updated.
44 virginblue4 : When is it due for delivery?
45 hotplane : Week begining 14th May.
46 BrianDromey : I wonder if it is this way because Airbus tend to ship the tailplane fully painted so the tailplane would already have been painted quite some time a

48 goblin211 : should look good but is there a particular reason for airlines to invert their liveries?
49 flash330 : NEO order?
50 gt4ezy : A good suggestion, never thought of that. But a special livery wouldn't make sense. Would it?
51 BasilFawlty : In most cases it is done to promote something (like a website) or celebrate something (like an anniversary).
52 flash330 : Well i thought they were celebrating their 200th aircraft and maybe to get maximum publicity they ll annonce an order as well?
53 gt4ezy : Not with a press embargo though. Perhaps some brand tie up that the new brand licence permits though. Maybe
