These are may favourites, in no particular order, all new colors: United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Varig Brasil, Air France, Lufthansa, Lauda Air, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines. Interesting coincidence that all but Lufthansa has or will get Boeing 777s... The777Man

Anyone seen Air India's livery? I know its old, but it has held up through the years, and i have never seen anyone individually paint their windows. Quite unique, if you havent seen it, do a search on this sight, and tell me what you think. The 747-400 seems to look the best with it. Aside from that one, my favorites are, in no particular order:
Cathay Pacific (new)
Saudi Arabian (new)
British Airways (old Speed Wing)
Lan Chile (new)

But no ones done the individual window treatments before as far as I know, and it still looks unique. I agree, overall it needs some updating, the lettering and tail designs, but I think the individually painted windows should stay. Thanks for your opinion though Maybe you would have liked their experimental livery, Eurowhite plane with red sash on tail.

Alaska's livery is sharp! I remember I was just a junior in high school when it came out....all those years ago....
Too bad they backed out of the MD-90 order, those would have been SHARP with the nice ALASKA logo adorning the fuselage and Eskimo on the tail....

You have good taste in liveries and asthetics!!!!!
Excellent choices. I always marvel at Air New Zealand whenever I see one...the gradient fill from blue to green on the tail is classy, and sharp, and is definitely an eye catcher.

Interesting observation. You don't suppose that Lufthansa's A340 fleet has anything to do with that do you?
Good choices of liveries! Although, Air France never did anything for me, all the other ones are nice.

MattD, why would LHs A340 fleet have anything to do with them not using the 777? Look at Air France, they operate them side by side and say that they use them for two different types of missions. Of all the Airbus partners (I mean France, not Air France, but they are state owned, so you know what I mean! ), you would think that AF would be the last airline to buy a Boeing when a comparable Airbus is available. Others do this too!
