Is There A New Livery That You Actually Like?!

Hi,

All to often I read on these forums that an airline is changing its livery, and then follows a load of criticism about the new livery and how bad it is. (OK, I accept the opinions about the new Britannia livery!) So, my question is what airlines have introduced a new livery in recent years that you actually LIKE?!

Ones that I can think of include Virgin Atlantic, bmi British Midland and I have to say British Airways, though others will disagree!
What are some of your favourite new liveries?

Cheers,
DEM

TWA's old-new colors, not the crappy looking AA hybrid scheme. The new Delta colors aren't bad though, I also like US Airways new colors.

I love the US Airways colors, and unlike many people, I also like the new Delta colors. BMI is also nice, though SAS could have thought of something better.

I'll concur with the Silver Dream Machine scheme by Virgin and BMI's new scheme.

Sun Country too!

I seem to hate them all at first. Then most of them grow on me.

New ones I like are TWA (not the AA hybrid), US Airways, Southwest, Delta, Fedex (not so new), Sun Country, American West, Hawaiian, Aerolineas Argentinas, BA, Virgin, Aer Lingus, Air 2000, Finnair, JAT, Saudi Arabian (the best), Egyptair, China Airlines, South African, Libyan Arab.

New ones I hate are: LANChile, JMC Air, SAS (what were they thinking?), Austrian, Sabena, El Al, JAL (not so new), Aeroflot, TAROM.

Time for a new livery!....UPS, Midwest Express, Olympic AW, RAM, Air China, Air-India.




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

New BA looks good (although the old livery was a classic!!!!). SAA looks good too, but I'd really like to see #3 of this picture flying around!!

I really like ATA's new livery, as well as Hawaiian's as well. Sun Country's looks really good as well. But the best looking livery was Impulse's Cockatoo livery, it's just a shame that that livery is now replaced with a boring quasi-Qantas livery. And I really like the various liveries of Bangkok Air as well.

These airlines have not changed their liveries for a long time now:

Air India
Olympic
Cathay Pacific (Ok atleast the present one is not so nice)
Air France(when have they last changed their livery?)

Cheers,
Thomas.

I think that there are alot of recent liveries that are good. But I always see that people put down the jmc Llivery and I actually think thats a good livery.
