Tail logo minus the turquoise colour looking rather dull, Arabic word for cargo dropped plus Saudia name applied, hope the title application will not get same treatment on passenger aircraft one on top of the other, even on the freighters the should have kept the original format of Arabic and English on either ends of the Cargo title.

It's not horrible. It's down to a simplified (and cheaper) four-color scheme.
And several carriers have employed simplified logos on their freighters, so maybe this is an example of that?
Overall, though, it's not ugly. Just not as pretty as its predecessor.
I mean, heck, it beats that pants off of AA's new "identity."

While I lament the simplified logo (I think the turqouise gradient made the tail look great) overall its a stunning looking plane. I think the "new" logo is on another plane already so might become standard.

I usually kinda like Saudia's livery and colours, but the "Cargo" word looks disproportionately big compared to the "Saudia" logo. I mean, a cargo plane is above all a good advertisement platform for the company... and Saudia would rather "show-off" its logo and not the fact that is a cargo plane.
No thats their new loo, the cargo division infact is private since a few years and is called Saudi Airlines Cargo, initially that seemed to be the name that was to adorn the cargo fleetin some modified images at their website, but they decided against it.
