Looks like Royal Brunei is introducing a new livery. http://www.geekinwhite.com/post/3463...ry-of-royal-brunei-revealed-loving

I can't say I like the new colours.

I like it very much, simple, elegant and 21st century. Way to go Royal Brunei Airlines.

They are the same (or nearly) colors just executed differently.

Another Eurowhite design.

Here's another look at the livery: http://www.geekinwhite.com/post/3463...it-is-just-rb-now-all-the-best-for

I quite like the minimalist look - the yellow looks elegant. And RB with the "throne" looks royal indeed, on the tail..

Based on that one picture, I don't like it. I absolutely loved the previous livery and I can't see why they felt it needed to be updated.

But then again, that's just a few pictures of one aircraft type. I'll pass full judgement when I can see more photos. Maybe it looks better on the 777?



Flying refined.

Looks very high end and chic in my eyes. Classy!

The old livery was a steaming pile of you know what imo.

In my opinion, the body is very nice, clean and very 21st century. But the tail is a bit... bland. The RB needs to look more... regal/ royal.

But all in all, it's a much welcome change. I reckon it'll look good on their B787s!

Fingers crossed that they'll do a "Garuda" with their rebranding and overhaul...

What? white fuselage, grey belly, painted tail, titles about one third down the upper fuslage? (the grey things on the fuselage are shadows I suppose)
Wow, I must say very brave and daring - for a designer who has no talent and a management who has no taste and no idea of marketing. An anxious beancounters scheme. Did they hire a fired JAL manager?

If you think a white piece of paper is elegant, then yes. The 787 itself is elegant for sure, but this "livery" is so bland and austere I fear for the mental state of people who like it. So easy to please with the simplest things? Cheap, cheap, cheap, that seems the motto here.

No need to insult anyone just because they like something you don't.  

Some people appreciate the clean and professional look and others appreciate the vibrant and attention grasping look. It's all in preference.

From a design perspective, a huge step down from what was a very distinctive and attractive livery.

Boring and bland, honestly, which is better than outright bad, but not by much. It's another livery that makes it look like these planes were acquired second-hand and not much money can be spent on making them look nice, or that the planes are just on short term lease, and that's why it's so mimimal.

No thanks.

The previous livery was MUCH better.
One of the worst livery change (like Finnar for example)

My feelings exactly in both cases. Still, I guess we'll get used to it.

Quite beside the point, are they still getting 787s? I thought they'd cancelled?

why are so many airlines going with "all white" body and color on the tail? They could at least have a color strip on the entire length of the fuselage.

25 Viscount724 : That's probably one reason for the change. The simpler the livery, the cheaper it is to paint.

36 ZKOJH : Well it seems most airlines RE GOING THIS WAY, totally silly hate it and looks cheap! will this increase PAX's or make them run!
