Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Sorry, folks, I like UAL as much as the next guy, but I think that UAL's old friendship stripe livery looks horrible.... I can't stand it.

ARE YOU GUYS SERIOUS? ! ? !  Wow!

Why do you think Johan chose the Northwest Orient 747 as the header/logo for this site?

(Johan, don't change it either)

What´s wrong with the old NW livery? It was unique and bold. Most liveries of todays majors are worse. I like Northwests boldness that also is shown on their current livery, in my opinion one of the most attractive in the whole world.

Bad liveries in my opinion:

In general the majority of schemes that use allwhite fuselages with a bit of blue are awfully boring. The new Thomas Cook (ex Condor) livery is horrible.

I don't like some of the all-white liveries that seem to be gaining popularity with airlines. Case in point is Air France's scheme; it's one of the most dull-looking out there, it lacks design & has very little colour. They haven't changed it in a very long time & it must be one of the oldest liveries.

I'm not a big fan of these kinds of liveries but they do allow airlines to save costs in an industry where earnings are cyclical & profit margins thin.

Hkg82.

To me , the most boring livery has to be Air France, just white and lack of interesting design.

Many airlines like those white liveries,well I don't, unless they have a impressive tail design, like South African for instance.

Just compare:

In some cases,to me, a dull design is just looking good on an aircraft, like my favourite, old/current Aeroflot, and the old Pan Am livery Big thumbs up.

Admiral Akbar,

the old CP Air livery was one of the most stunning ever in my opinion. Although I like the shortlived Goose-scheme as well, the old orange/silver was fantastic I have to say. But I agree it was an extreme livery, not to be loved by everyone.

Admiral Ackbar - from my perspective you got it the wrong way around.. the CP livery was dynamic and striking. The Canadian Goose livery was gross and ugly (I liked the goose itself but the over size didn't do anything for me in my humble opinion)
