I must say that the Vanguard liveries are pretty miserable. It is a typical low fare livery that I can see in one of those desert book editions in a few years. It's tacky and unprofessional and low-class. Its crap.

Pesonally I think the best liveries are:
Virgin
Delta
AirTran
Iberia

The worst are:
Vanguard
British Airways
Aeroflot
Vietnam Airlines

I would love some heated arguments about this!

Well at least the new livery is an improvement over the old livery...yuck! The bright green 737 does not look too great, but I think a few of the colors look ok on the M80's, like the maroon M87 for instance. I saw the blue MD-80 the other day....it looked pretty nice.

The Vanguard liveries aren't bad at all. Better than many of the US majors!

I didn't think it was all that bad - better than the old. The more airlines change their colors, the more I like American Airlines. Honestly, it stands the test of time.

Unfortunately NJ does not have the cash to employ the likes of Landor and Leo Burnett....

Having said that, Delta has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to redesign itself as a Soviet Flag carrier Big grin

Delta Connection Sky West Airlines CRJ2 - N497SW @ Billings Logan Intl. (KBIL/BIL)

I like the livery on the Sky West aircraft. Its mesmerizing!  Nuts

Other favorite liveries are United, Northwest, Virgin Atlantic, Southwest, and America West.

BTW, I took that photo on the 27th of November this year. Go to http://nukez.com for more Big grin

Er...I don't see the hammer and sickle on the current flag of the Russian Federation although for Delta it might make a nice touch.

Kind of a dumb post considering you haven't specified which livery you think is crap.

Yeah. The old Vanguard looks like a wannabe America West paintjob. Now that TWA is gone (*sniff*), I think the new Vanguard is the nicest paint flying on a U.S. carrier.

I kind of like Vanguard's new liveries. At least they don;t look like everyone else and stand out. It reminds me of the old days of Braniff when their planes were different colors.

I agree that Vanguard's first livery was hideous. To me it looked like something straight out of the 1960's.

Then there was livery #2 which was a definite improvement.

So far, in the current scheme, we have black, blue, green, maroon and white. Does anyone know if other colors will be used for additional aircraft?

I think a dark shade of gray would look sharp!

8 colors altogether if I remember correctly. Maybe a purple, red, and orange? No gray, unless it is VERY dark. Light gray would make the plane look dirtier IMO.

I guess I'm biased but I love all of the colors. I think its unique & fills the gap of the flying colors of Branniff at MCI. Yes, there will be more colors but I don't know what. Keep flyin' high Vanguard.

Vanguard has one of the best liveries in the US. I actually think the green looks pretty good on the 737. The Maroon is probably their best of the colors. Its nice to see an airline put some colors on their planes.
