Can anyone show examples of 2 different carriers' colorschemes which are VERY similar.

I think it would be difficult to find two as similar as Air Malta, and Gill Airways (ceased trading 2001):

I was thinking Copa and CO as well. If I remember correctly COPA changed theirs to resemble CO after their codeshare agreement.

Disqualified as per the message on the Air Botnia fuselage.
Didn't Air Europa have to change their livery because it was being confused with Iberia?

Stephen Wolf Changed UA to the now famous Gray upper, blue lower colors then went to US and Changed thiers to Blue upper, gray lower colors. Looks like he liked what he saw the first time and just reversed it.

As they are related/subsidiaries to/of eachother Copa (Continental Panama) and Continental and SAS and Air Botnia don't count in this topic to me.

Also China Xinjiang and Aeroflot disqualify because Xinjiang just took Il-86s already painted in old basic Aeroflot and was too lazy to fully repaint them (same with NASA and their 747).
An interesting one though were Avianca

Both liveries appeared around the same time (1973-1974) and the airlines didn't have anything to do with eachother, so one of these probably liked the other one...



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I have to say that Air Florida and SAHSA Honduras had very similar colors..

"As they are related/subsidiaries to/of eachother Copa (Continental Panama) and Continental and SAS and Air Botnia don't count in this topic to me."

So thats means that Avensa and PAN AM do not count to, they were related. Also Iberia´s 70s livery with Air Panama 70s livery.

American Airlines current colors and Air Panama 2nd colors.

I know they are owned by the same company (TUI) but still, TUI could of used a different livery for each one.
