I think there are some great ones out there like Air Canada, Continental, South African, Ansett amongst others, but the best by far in my opinion is the Air France tail, who ever designed it did a great job and its become even better since the design was sharpened in the early 90's Smile

The new TWA is a fantastic mix of a new design while incorporating shades of their former glory. It will be sadly missed.

Some of the better ones are more obscure worldwide:
Westjet (bold & clean)
Hawaiian
BWIA
Aerolineas Argentinas
Air 2000
Air Malta
Egyptair
Saudi Arabian (the best!)
Kuwait (nice engine trim)
Premiair/Airtours UK
Asiana

To each his/her own I guess!

The British Airways world tails (I like them all), Deltaflot, South African, TWA's new one (R.I.P.) ATA's beach on the tail- those are my favorites.
The OLD America West is pretty good too.

1) I like all those BA Utopia Tails.
The DelftBlue Daybreak, Rendez-vous, Column, Benyhone Tartan...they're all stunning and make a spotter's/photographer's day of spotting a lot of fun!

2) The new VirginAtlantic scheme is sharp as well.

3) Aer Lingus

4) Saudi

5) Continental - not underdone and very sharp.




Bonjour Chef!
