Quoting RobK (Thread starter): Looks like they've nicked Aerolineas Argentinas old livery...
Huh? I honestly didnt make that connection at all. The blue is quite a bit different, the bird logo is the one they've used for quite a while now, the awkward circle element is the only thing removed. Here's their old livery for reference:

Quoting 777way (Reply 5): Which old AR livery? it dosent even come close in STYLE to the three worn before the current one, tail maybe a bit on the third one.
The tail was what I was referring to and yes the 3rd one. At a glance it looks nearly identical if not for the shade of blue. Certainly a bland tail logo and worse than the previous livery imho which had a nice Chinese feel about it, but this one just looks totally generic.

Not knowing anything about Xiamen other than it's a city and area renowned for stone masonry, the airline's livery doesn't connect to my perception in any way. Just another generic Cathay airline logo IMHO.
I am always amused to see people trying to be smart jumping to conclusion without any eduational background imformation. The logo on the tails of Xiamen Airlines is an EGRET, popularly seen on Xiamen island. The idea of an egret is flying high...

Massively better than the crappy scheme they had before.
I am waiting for Air China now to finally introduce a scheme that fits this century. They are the only airline left still flying in a dull communist era paintscheme - and worse, they are the flagcarrier and not a backrow operator.
