Have you ever had a livery that when you first saw it, you hated it, but now you like it, or even love it? Or what about a livery you used to like, but now you don't? What are they? Here's mine:

old Virgin colors: used to like, can't stand now
new Virgin colors: hated at first, love now
new SAS: hated at first, like now
current Northwest:used to like, don't like now
current United: used to like, only o.k. now
new new Delta: used to not like, like now

I didn't like CX, but it has grown on me
same with Malaysian
the American Airlines livery I used to hate when I was first spotting but don't mind it now
same with Alitalia & British Airways
I used to like the new NZ colours but now I don't (tho this is probably more due to being so commonly seen than anything else)
same with United

SAS new one will never grow on me. I liked the old one better.

Most drastic growth on me
I would say DL's newest scheme has grown on me.
SW Blue Scheme


National and ATA scheme grew on me to... lol.. Only took about 1 minute for those two!
