I think the new MS livery is hideous! Especially on the whalejet! I think Malaysian should've sticked to its old color scheme but changed the kite-logo into an oversized one (just like QR) and increase the font of the MS into billboard titles.
THE MS 380 looks too white, unproportional, the logo on the tail looks too small, the stripes are wrong, and the colors are just too wrong! BIG FAIL.
The Thai A380 on the other hand is FLAWLESS. CANT BE MORE PERFECT.

The MH one looks good! I like it all... except for the tail, the logo is too high up and too small, looks weird but I love the colours! The TG one looks amazing as well, as to be expected, though the front looks very bare considering how nice the rear of the plane is.

The Malaysian A380 looks absolutely.... Shocking. In a bad way. I'd say that they should have kept the grey belly cheat line livery, suits any aircraft they operate and would totally awesome on the A380.
Also one thing I noticed that they have changed the revised scheme that was unveiled two months ago. With the latest revisions thats makes an overall of 3.

Not only does the kite on the tail look too small and in the wrong place, the slightly different angle its rear borders have vs the angle of the rudder (esp badly visible on the last pic from the production thread) makes it worse.. Could they not have slanted it bit more so that the rudder and the kite align properly??
: Thai A380 is beautiful! Perhaps my favorite A380 livery so far!
: I can imagine Hillary Clinton silently mouthing 'Wow!' when she sees that pic of the Thai A380. I wouldn't blame her. That scheme looks terrific on th
: The Thai scheme looks good. The MAS livery looks unfinished and is certainly not flattering to an aircraft already cosmetically challenged.
: The Thai color scheme is great, but, in my personal opinion, there is nothing that can make this "fugly" machine look good.
: I always loved the TG livery and it looks great on the A380. The MH livery is just awful in contrast...
: Congrats MH on the hideous new color scheme!
: WOW for the THAI whale jet. Ewww for the MH whale jet.... Thanks for sharing the pics!
: Thai: Beautiful livery on a beautiful airliner. Malaysia: Could have done much better. Not very original.
: Whole lot of white on the MA one.... The thai one looks awesome though.
: As looking in the opening post the MH A380 was looking quite good!!! After checking this link I must say, that is absolute a no go for a 380 paining!
: I really like the MH livery. Especially the curvaceous stripes and the black color. In my opinion airlines should use more black in their liveries.
: I would agree that the Thai livery fits the 380 well. Malaysia, on the other hand, is a total let-down. Whom did they pay millions for this? The swoos
: I think they could've done more with the MH scheme, but it doesn't look horrible just a little boring for my taste. Now TG on the other hand, THAT is
: Awesome new livery for MA. Well done. TG livery is great especialy on A380.
: Personally I don't see what everyone is upset about. They both look great! Yeah the MH A380 uses a lot of white but almost all carriers have a euro-wh
: Wow, looks like my opinion would be rather unpopular in this thread. I actually LIKE the MH livery and just find it unfortunate that it is on the only
: KLM, Aeroflot and Skyteam livery... try those.
: That blue on the MH one looks dreadful. Should be a lighter colour. This one just looks dreadful.
: The Thai aircraft would be even better if it was in the original metallic paint.
: I love TG's livery - always thought of it as elegant, sleek, crisp and beautiful. On the A380 however it looks like a fat lady trying to squeeze herse
: The Thai livery is gorgeous! IMHO, the only way to improve it would be a little color on the engines. Perhaps copy the 3 color lines of the body and p
: MH logo is too flat it needs some highlighting like on BA tails.
: I don't get it, is this kind of an insider joke?
: Imagine the way the color scheme is spread across the whole engine as being the same spread across the fuselage. That is how MH should have done the l
: TG looks good. MH...uhmmmm, come on! you can do better, especially that TAIL!!!!
: As many have stated, I am not the least bit shocked the TG livery looks good. For me, as a London spotter, one of my favorite planes is the MH 744. I
: MAS: Fuselage Engines Tail The tail is too plain compared to the rest of the A/C.
: On the MH plane, I like the little red accents at the rear of the engines, but won't those quickly get covered in exhaust by-products and turn black?
: I think those are covers on the nozzle, but the nozzles would be blue(then black form exhaust) and not red
: MH looks like a freighter!......THAI like a candy wrapper!.....really don't like either of them!
: Ah, that make much more sense. Silly me....thanks for setting me straight.
: The Malaysian is OK, but not great. The Thai is Thai - nothing different from the rest of the fleet. Maybe MH should have had a competition to get the
: I was thinking "I never expected to say this, but I am getting used to the look of this airplane..." and then I realized - the color schemes are brea
