I'm going to have to say American. How can you say no to a great silver plane with the two A's and the eagle! and any airline wiht the name American in Red White and Blue just makes me happy.

Delta! AA is too plain. While the patriotic colours are nice, Delta by far blows the others out of the sky!

British Airways in the old "union jack" paint scheme.

Looks great on the 747's.

US Airways has the most prestigious livery, followed closely by British Airways "Landor" scheme. They both look very clean and professional.

I think the most prestigious airline paint scheme is, or should I say was TWA's. It's too bad they are not going to be around much longer.

Ok, the key word here is prestigious, and my vote would have to go for the old British Airways union jack livery. I don't think any livery exemplified as much class and dignity as theirs.

but it's a pretty prestigious paint scheme don't you think? Didn't Jackie Kennedy design the original paint job on the original 707-120?
