My vote goes to the new colour scheme - The old livery wasn't bad, but it was just too old and needed updating badly, especially when every other major UK charter carrier appears to have had an image change over the past few years.

The new livery is more of an 'evolution' than a 'revolution', unlike the new BY colours. MON must have the best livery of all the UK charter airlines I reckon (then again, the competition is nothing to shout about).

Regards,
James.

Good chance for a plug!

I Think that the new livery is surprisingly good, Monarch have set the standard once again, they always seem to create a great image for themselves.

The new livery keeps the corporate image up, whilst modernizing it at the same time! Its lively, yet confined.

excellent!

I much prefer the OLD one. A timeless classic! I hate the new one very unoriginal and it will certainly not last as long as the OLD one! I think we have got enough wavy c/s these days JMC, MY TRAVEL, BMI, BA and Now MONARCH!!! Come on graphic designers! TRY SOMETHING NEW!

Great new image, now they just have to re-vamp the cabin crew with a friendlier attitude.

IMHO good product, but consistently miserable crews.

The old colours are nice . . . but the new livery is refreshing and yet unmistakably Monarch! Love the dash of yellow on the crown on the tail!

Any idea if this new livery was designed in-house or by some external consultants or designers?

It is a pitty that they left the classic window line (it makes an aircraft long) although I have to admit that the new fuselage wavy pattern is very, very, very beautifull as well as the Monarch brandname; it looks very soft but still sturdy, new and due to its fine colours very tastefull; very good job, designer!!

The tailfin emblem design however is nicer but the whole tailfin design is not a real strong improvement. They could have make more out of this tailfin...pitty, pitty. Final decissions are mostly made by airlines' CEO's, I cannot imagine this Monarch tailfin design was the designer's choice.

By the way who designed it? Please inform this forum in case you know it.

I prefer the new livery, except for the tail design (the old tail scheme wins hands down).

I agree a lot with Air Orange: I like the new wavy pattern on the fuselage, the Monarch titles, soft, yet sturdy image...

Maybe the tail scheme could have been a bit more soft too (curved lines, etc.).

Regards.
