Is There A New Livery That You Actually Like?!

Thu Sep 20, 2001 4:00 am

Hi,

All to often I read on these forums that an airline is changing its livery, and then follows a load of criticism about the new livery and how bad it is. (OK, I accept the opinions about the new Britannia livery!) So, my question is what airlines have introduced a new livery in recent years that you actually LIKE?!

Ones that I can think of include Virgin Atlantic, bmi British Midland and I have to say British Airways, though others will disagree!
What are some of your favourite new liveries?

Cheers,
DEM

TWA's old-new colors, not the crappy looking AA hybrid scheme. The new Delta colors aren't bad though, I also like US Airways new colors.

I love the US Airways colors, and unlike many people, I also like the new Delta colors. BMI is also nice, though SAS could have thought of something better.

I'll concur with the Silver Dream Machine scheme by Virgin and BMI's new scheme.

Sun Country too!

I seem to hate them all at first. Then most of them grow on me.

New ones I like are TWA (not the AA hybrid), US Airways, Southwest, Delta, Fedex (not so new), Sun Country, American West, Hawaiian, Aerolineas Argentinas, BA, Virgin, Aer Lingus, Air 2000, Finnair, JAT, Saudi Arabian (the best), Egyptair, China Airlines, South African, Libyan Arab.

New ones I hate are: LANChile, JMC Air, SAS (what were they thinking?), Austrian, Sabena, El Al, JAL (not so new), Aeroflot, TAROM.

Time for a new livery!....UPS, Midwest Express, Olympic AW, RAM, Air China, Air-India.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

New BA looks good (although the old livery was a classic!!!!). SAA looks good too, but I'd really like to see #3 of this picture flying around!!

I really like ATA's new livery, as well as Hawaiian's as well. Sun Country's looks really good as well. But the best looking livery was Impulse's Cockatoo livery, it's just a shame that that livery is now replaced with a boring quasi-Qantas livery. And I really like the various liveries of Bangkok Air as well.

I would rate BMI as having the best new Livery  Big thumbs up

The others i like in descending order:

Srilankan Big grin
LanChile
Saudia



These airlines have not changed their liveries for a long time now:

Air India
Olympic
Cathay Pacific (Ok atleast the present one is not so nice)
Air France(when have they last changed their livery?)

Cheers,
Thomas.

I think that there are alot of recent liveries that are good. But I always see that people put down the jmc Llivery and I actually think thats a good livery.

Of all the recent livery changes, the Sun Country (SY) livery is one of the few I really like.  Smile Mostly because it's distinctive and the designer actually has good sense of color use. The other livery changes lately (Southwest, British Midland, Frontier, Hapag-Lloyd, ATA) either have serious color clashes, terrible looking lines, naff lettering, or cheap, bizzare use of color.

There aren't to many US carries schemes that I like, with the exception of Northwest's. That is very sharp. Especially on thier 744's,757's and even the fantasy 777. In fact, I think the fanatasy 777 in NWA colors is the best scheme on any 777, in my opinion.

To me, the previous livery of VARIG is a classic, dating from the dawn of the jet age. Nonetheless, their new livery is a most worthy successor:

Another simple, yet very attractive new livery, IMO, is that of SAS; it looks especially good on their 738s:
