I'm aware that the One World alliance want to have a uniform branding but the planned One World livery on S7 aircraft shall look a bit disappointing lacking the overall green...

I actually like it, and it's one of the better OneWorld alliance liveries. While the regular livery is quite distinctive, the OneWorld livery is more refined and elegant. I know some folks here will say the usual comments about "another boring white livery", but in this case, I feel that it's not so boring because of the other colors in the livery.

   I really like it too... it looks a lot better than the regular S7 bright green livery!

It's actually one of the few One World liveries that stands out from the rest of the fleet (ironically, it's by not being something that really stands out).

As it is different from the rest of the fleet, it will turn heads, and the PR from being in a global alliance is nothing but good for S7.

As atrocious as the Oneworld livery usually is, this one looks good.

It is not too bad, but I really think that the SkyTeam livery is by far the best of the three.

Think it might be time for the word disappointing to be taken off the thread title.

I also quite like it, I like the green belly with the rest white. Looks good and an exciting addition for OneWorld

It looks like you are in the minority group here - I like it as well!

Why is the tail a lighter green than on the engines? I think it would have looked even better with the same darker green on the tail.

Yep, I'm in the minority maybe because I'm a graphic designer. Let me be clear, this S7 One Wolrd themed livery looks very neat for sure but S7's light green wouldn't have been taken off while there is still enough contrast between the light green and the dark One World blue.

Looks bad, guess I'm also in the minority. With so much white and a light green tail, it looks more like a last-minute slap-together hybrid livery of some sort. The same goes for the Royal Jordanian Oneworld livery; perhaps it's because of the airline's colorful livery that makes that particular Oneworld logojet look so bad.

In my opinion, Skyteam got it right . . . except for the VN logojet!  Wink

I actually really like this, but the S7 doesn't look the best that's for sure.

It looks like a very cheap, unimaginative paintjob to me. And the contrast between green, red and blue is hurtful to the eye. Reminds me a little of Miami Air. Just a very bad take on it..

S7's Oneworld livery looks fantastic. I don't understand why some find it unappealing. The entire Oneworld branding is somewhat boring and a bit outdated if you ask my opinion therefore once put on an aircraft which normally sports quite a stand-out livery such as S7 it appears boring. Not S7 fault here if you ask me.

I like it. It really stands out and I find the different colors far better than the other liveries out there.
You want a cheap livery? AA's oneworld livery. That's cheap.

I don't think it's quite that bad, either. Granted, there is a bit of a yawn factor once you move toward the tail, the nose looks nice and clean.
