Yes it does, Decman. That's why I'm always so excited to see one coming in to LAX. I hope and pray they aren't bought out before I've had the pleaure of flying them.

climbout, I hope you do get to fly with them, as I have flown with them many times and nothing beats good old Irish hospitality.

Yes, I have heard that Irishman are very friendly. Big thumbs up

As for Delta, the tail is cool but I think the rest of the plane would look better if it were painted in the lighter blue color (that's at the bottom of the tail), instead of just plain white.

I think that Sun Country's 737-800 livery is the best I've seen in a long time. I wish they would paint their 727's in the same livery if they plan on keeping them around for long.

Favorite Color Scheme

I think the colour schemes of British Airways and China Airlines are the best.
The design and colour of BA world colour scheme is wonderful!!!
The blossom of CI is very sharp, I like it !!!

I agree with Timmsp, the new Sun Country is great, but the old scheme is horrible. I spent the day at PHX, so I will say America West, US Airways, and Southwest(blue). The brown Southwest looks like a flying terd, great airline though.

My favorite is Deltaflot of course...although...it would be awesome if they interchanged the color of the fuselage with the light blue, white, dark blue, and red. I don't know how much more this would cost, but it really would look awesome. I also like United's and Virgin Atlantic's (new) schemes.

I recently had a chance to fly HP (MSP-LAS-SJC-LAS-MSP) and I agree that the new colors are 10 times better than the old scheme. The green is a great shade and the silver squiggles are a nice touch. I also admit that the A320 on one of the segments had about the nicest interior color scheme I've seen in a long time. The light blue seat covers made the cabin seem a lot lighter and roomier than other A320's I've been on.

Mine is LH
Delta's newest and the one livery from 96 are ugly...just yuck to me.
The old DL scheme looks better than the newer ones!

It all depends on the type of aircraft.

I like the new British Midland livery on the A320 very much, but not when applied to the A330.

UAL is my favorite, of course.

USAirways has a really cool c/s, although I'm not that crazy about the airline itself.
National Airlines has a cool c/s, too.
JAL is very nice.


Southwest Airlines....just plain ugly. Time to try something else.

Well, ummmm

United
BA's old colours were my favourite
SAS (The new colours look great on the A343)
Finnair
Cathay Pacific
Asiana

Why did BA ever get rid of the old scheme!
