There's a picture of the "new" ANA livery on the JPV website; don't know if there's a picture on this site, but it's particularly easy to describe: JUST like the old one, but with ANA titles rather than "All Nippon Airways". That's all that's been changed. I had understood that they were going to do a complete livery change around now, but no sign of it.

Does anyone know more?

i like the fact that it looks a bit cleaner, and whatnot. the simple "ANA" gives it a more mordern look, but other than that there isnt really a big change.

It does not make a huge difference to me. I do think that this livery does look a bit cleaner, but overall, it looks like a small,minor change. No big deal.

They also took away the Japanese writing, or whatever language it was.

Even better would have been just ANA on the tail and nothing on the fuselage.

.....up there with the best!

Why make a major change to a livery which is well known across Japan and the Globe and which also represents good service, and a great safety record??

I don't think this is the livery change. I heard a while back (on this forum) that the new livery would be unveiled some time in 2003 and would be mostly red instead on blue. But I personally don't think this airline needs a livery change....

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

That's definitely one of the great airliner liveries. I think i prefer the updated fuselage titling.

Are ANA trying to create a new image--global services. Are they want to clear the old Japanese images? Will the 'sun' on the main wings be removed? If yes, then it looks not like a Japanese airline.

Doesn't look that bad, but to call it "new" livery, well, its still very similar to the old one...

They had a new scheme for the end of last year but since all the airline problems after 9/11 they put it on hold. They scheme was `based' on the 777-300 with the wavy scheme. At the moment ANA are doing very, very badly in terms of profits.

This info comes directly from ANA Japan.

I've seen the pic of the 777 on justplanes.com and I wondered "What's so special about it?" I just didn't see any difference to the existing ANA colours. Now I finally know.
Is there any bad reputation of All Nippon, or why do they see a need to change the livery? It looks stylish, it's well-known among frequent travellers, and especially with the current financial situation mentioned by Hkgspotter1 they would be crazy to spend millions in a new livery.

ps: I prefer the large "ANA" titles over the Japanese writing, but maybe that is just my European way of thinking, I'm sure Japanese passengers would prefer Japanese titles.

I definately prefer the japanese titles to the new ANA titles, I think it looks much better. I also liked the Japanese flag next to title which they have now removed.

i think the revised scheme looks great! from one of the most dated liveries in asia, with such minor changes, i'm amazed at the difference, it keeps the strong ANA brand and looks very fresh. The cheatline detailing on the tail fin has also changed. GOOD WORK ANA!

I defintiely like the Japanese titles on the aircraft. They should leave well enough alone. The standard ANA livery is great. The titles are pronounced:


Zen= All
Ni= Abbreviated form of Ni-ppon
Ku= Air
