Well, not exactly... I just read this on udn.com.tw and they said that they're going to change the white belly to "the evergreen green" and there will be orange coloured "stripes" on the fuselage... the tail will remain the same...

Didn't have a pic on the site but there will be a launch of the new colour scheme on 20NOV in their TPE hanger... and there will be a 744 freshly painted on display...

Do you think it actually looks better with a green belly??

Regards

Jimmy

While the current livery isn't outstanding in any way, I'm not sure the modifications will be an improvement.... but I'll wait to see it before I pass judgement.

EVA once had a darkblue or darkgreen tail with a grass green EVA globe and a orange penstripe at the rear. Thát was a sophisticated livery! And imagine thát livery with a green belly: Superb!!! (look at page 85 of John K. Morton's "Flying Colours" book).

I do not like the white logo on the current EVA tail. Too remarkable just like LOT Polish Airlines. They have also a too huge white ball logo on their tail....cheap!

I hope it doesn't look anything like PIA's current colour scheme.

Hi!

EVA Air changed their initial paint scheme (the dark green tail one with dark green "EVA" and light green "AIR" titles) because it doen't stand out. And all people can see from a distance is a dark green tail... So afterwards they changed the paintscheme to the current one, reflecting 100% of the EVERGREEN GROUP CIS...

I think it's unique... not many airlines use green as their main colour... and it sure does reflect the Evergreen Group attitude...

but what i don't understand is the "orange stripe" thingy... cuz the current cheatline is green with a bit of orange in the front above the letter "E"...

Anyways enough of my rant...

Cheers


Jimmy

According to reliable sources who has close relationships with EVA Air saying that EVA Air may only change the font for both English and Chinese title, and you may not noticed that EVA changed their livery.

EVA Air is also considering to "lower the appearance of Green colour". Many people treat this "quote" as to distant its political relationships with Taiwan's DPP, current ruling party, supports Taiwan independence. EVA has denied the related reports about the political relationships.

Cool. Can't wait to see a splash of colour on their all-too-white aircraft.

EVA Air's current livery is classy. Perhaps the addition of some "Cathay Pacific" light green to the underside or even upper side of the fuselage. I hope they don't get gaudy with it.

I for one think that a green belly with some orange paint on the fuselage would be a huge improvement over the current scheme.

The pin-stripe on the fuselage now does not even warrant a second glance - it is too insignificant to make a statement.

The tail colours are just fine - both the current one and the very short-lived original dark green one (I prefer this).

All said and done, EVA Air does have superb inflight service!

Air Taiwan - do you know if they will paint the MD-11 (passenger version) in the new colours too?

Jimmy, EVA's personnel won't tell you the exact details. They'll only tell you we are planning to change the livery.

According to their staff, they will be painting ALL their aircraft (ie including cargo) into the new livery...

Here's a link on China Times, a Taiwanese newspaper with a picture of the new colours...

It does look rather tacky...it needs to have less green than that on the fuselage, more like how BA have it..
