Please, can I have your nominations for liveries in the "what were they thinking!" category?

BA's world livery tails, they totally sucked if u ask me. Made the BA planes look messy and untidy.

Thank God they're getting rid of them.

Although Delta's currrent new livery is a joke (save for the tails -- that is nice), at least it is an improvement over what they had before in the "new-old" livery.

My vote goes to Delta's old new livery.

That was way below average.

It looks like a very dull livery to me.



I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

I really liked Delta's first new scheme. I thougth it looked very professional and sleek. Their newest scheme is really mundane. I would nominate them as number one for worst scheme. Anyone for Vanguard as well?

I would have to nominate the following airlines, in the order of worst, to just a lot worse than the rest of the airline industry, reliveries.

1. Vanguard
2. ATA
3. Eva (their newest one which is a slightly changed older one)

Do you ever think the pilots get assigned that aircraft, do a walk around inspection and then come back and say "give us a different plane, you have to be kidding me, is this some kind of joke? Do you think people are going to feel safe riding in an airplane that looks like this?"

UA's stealth livery looks fantastic. Gives the planes a mean and powerful look.

I actually think that Seven Two up there looks sharp....

A month ago I would have said TUI , but the new Swiss "ambulance" is thoughtless.

In the States...(he lowers his voice so no one will hear him)....Southwest's new livery looks like Barney the Dinosaur passed out in a booth at Dennys.

ATA's old scheme sucked. I think the new one is rather sharp. Southwest's are terrible, old and new alike.
