BA and LH look very nice although they have white as their main color, but AF is ... bah - ugly!  Smile

Air France is one of my favorite liveries. I happen to like the white schemes of a lot of European carriers, but that just goes to show how everyone has their own opinion. What is your favorite white scheme?

Air France's livery is much more beautiful and elegant than Lufthansa's

So maybe you are the only one...

The first airline ever to come up w/ the white livery. It is more than 20 years old- already a classic and very sophisticated!!

Hi:

Tje Air France livery is not bad. I consider that the AF colour scheme is elegant and very nice, perfect for a flag carrier. But that the livery is old.

Taste is a very personal thing . . . generally I would rather see something with a little more colours than white.

BUT if it has to be white, I would rather it look as beautiful as Air France (provided the aircraft is clean).

Clean and on a bright sunny day, Air France's livery is very smart . . . even after all these years (how long has it been since this livery was introduced?)!

I consider the Air France livery to be very sophisticated and elegant but yet very simple.

I actually like the Air France livery, but feel it is a bit dated and definitely not as crisp as Lufthansa's but way more original than BA's. (I actually think BA's livery is unimaginative and boring).

Air France's scheme could use a slight update, perhaps a la Virgin silver dream machine style with an updated font.

One thing I noticed on my last visit to CDG in May was how dirty so many of AF's jets are on the outside.

ok, i'm the only one  Smile

Don't know why, but i hate the AF livery  Big grin

I really like the virgin atlantic livery, it looks great  Smile From the 3 airlines mentioned above, i like the lufthansa livery best, because i think the tail is very elegant and because i like blue  Big grin But they could update their livery a bit, i think  Smile

From the none-white liveries, i like United and British Midland

The AF tail design and the word "Air France" is quite okay but I am bored too when I see their complete white livery; I think it is outdated. France has not a reputation in matter of cleanity. They should wash their plans more often. Sorry French!

ILS, my uncle used to fly the very same aircraft many times!!!!! (former LY 747-200 captain, now 777)

About the liveries......Air France colors suck! I totally agree Air Orange.....BA are nice, but Virgin and BMI have great ones!!!!!!! Right on!

cheers

I think that Iberias' livery is far worse but both liveries are just inspired in the flag of their coutry. (as they are flag carriers. no?)
