Thanks to the masterful illustration skills of puck, my vision for a new paint scheme has become much more polished. Some will inevitably hate it, but I feel it is a generally timeless look. One last thank you to puck! Please support his skills by visiting http://www.puckgraphique.com

i saw the site, it was great. i also saw the new livery design for AI. It looks too colourful. Although i agree on the justification, butthen india is a colourful country. I guess the "chakra " on the tail looks cool, but the green fuselage and total red body becomes too much. There should be more of white than just the wings. Thats a suggestion, being an indian.

Imagine if the light blue on the tail was the same metallic hue as our b m i lettering.....it would be stunning in the sun and would be seen for miles. It would also provide another visible link for Star Alliance.

Much nicer than the original one you proposed. But I think everyone is living a pipe dream if they think UA is ready for a new paint scheme! #1 - the current lvery isn't that old and #2 - they have no money to repaint an entire fleet!! They have much larger issues at this point to deal with.

I think the liveries are great
I am not sure-call me stupid lol- but will the cheatline be reflective silver- as in the American Airlines DC10 Silver skin? I think that would be better if not- and have u thought as to whether the larger u on the tail, or the area below the cheatline, could be reflective silver? If they are this already and it is because of my ignorance, it is perfect in my opinion. If not, it is still the best livery I have seen- very modern, and espically on a 747, very awe-inspiring. Love it!!!

The Swiss Airways scheme is fantastic !!
The Air India scheme is a good start, but there is waaaay too much red and green. It's the livery equivalent of a 1960s acid trip with Ravi Shankar and the Rolling Stones, and the Maharishi thrown in for good measure. I like the red upper body but it needs to combine some of the elements of the Canada 3000 scheme. Perhaps a duller red and a beige lower body.
