Looks great. I'm surprised they're doing it on the 737 though and not the 319/320/321. It seems the trend at other carriers (AerLingus, Air France, Lufthansa, etc) is to put their retro liveries on an Airbus. While I am a Boeing fan, I think the Airbus has great lines for these kinds of things.

It's about time! Can't wait to see the real thing. I wonder what they will do with the titles given that, strictly speaking, Ceskoslovenske Aerolinie is an airline of a non-existent country. I hope for nostalgia's sake they keep things original. It would be quite befitting, given that this aircraft is apparently meant to operate predominantly out of Bratislava.
Yes, it's interesting that they've decided to go for a retro 737, given that they're phasing this type out, with just 6 examples remaining. IMO the livery will look better on the 737 than it would on the less sleek albeit more efficient A320.
I really wish CSA the best, given the tough time they've been going through. One of the oldest airlines in the world and IIRC either the second or third to introduce jet aircraft (TU-104, 50 years ago).

Didn't they introduce a special livery on one of their 737s a few years ago when they celebrated their 80th anniversary? That special livery shows the first aircraft they flew back in the early days of commercial aviation.
