I am probably biased but the Air New Zealand 744s in the Pacific Wave look pretty good!

I thought they meant 'Standard colour scheme' but as far as special paint schemes go Singapores '006' Tropical livery was good and so are JALs disney series. Wanula dreaming is not bad either

I agree that BA world images look good on the 747 400 !!! Also NW, the combination of grey and red really work well on a 747 400.

If only the 747 wore the Ethiopian Airlines scheme.... Now, that would be a sexy sight!

Nice contemporary schemes (including Air India) include:

DEfinitely Virgin. The pictures rally don't do it justice, when you see that silver glinting in the sun. AA would be cool on a 747. For understatedness, I like UAL's scheme, it paints a picture of a 747 ready to get down to business.

Air Pacifics Old Livery was just stunning, and Singapore, Thai, Korean, Garuda, Cathay and Malysian have very nice ones also!!

Cheers
