I know this is a lot like the other posts about the best tails, but which airlines have the worst tails, worst colours and the most out of date/old colours?


(I'll post mine soon)

Uuuuuuuuuuuugh the new Britannia/Hapag-Lloyd colors. Most certainly the worst.

Followed by:
Delta (newest c/s)
Dutchbird
The old russian tails (yep, those white tails with a little Russian flug)

I would have to say that I am not a big fan of the new Southwest liveries.

They really need to get a new look!

I agree with everybody else that Iberia needs to get a new look.
Also, Northwest should get a new look.

And I think that the new Southwest paint scheme is a big improvement over
the older one.

Amen! It isn't my favorite, but compared to the old colors, I'll give it a thumbs up. Big thumbs up

Bad ones: Air Canada, Continental (looks like a spider web), New Sabena (looks like the old Sabena on steroids), new SAS (what a disaster), Aeroflot (all versions), new Austrian (too messy), Olympic (time for a serious change/update), RAM (too old fashioned), Air Zimbabwe, Air-India, JAL, Vanguard, new ATA.

Some new ones I hated at first but have grown on me are Delta, TWA, Southwest, Aer Lingus. I guess I hate change but grow to like the new liveries after a while. The new HL is an improvement.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

American Airlines' and United Airlines' colours look a bit dull. They also need a facelift after what has happened. RIP to all those that died.

LTU...this is absolutely the worst, why can human beings fly with so ugly planes into holidays...after you have seen the plane youre eyes definately need holidays!!! PHILLIPINES, LUFTHANSA, ALITALIA (i cant see this anymore!!), old EL AL, TAROM, AEROFLOT...

Alaska Airlines- The planes look very dirty very soon after they are cleaned.

ANY livery that features the more and more common all white fuselage, come on! What happened to the WHOLE airplane as a pallet for atristic expression?

The worst however is the new SAS, what on earth were they thinking? They should go back to the SAS of the 50-60s-70s.
