EVA Air New Paint Scheme!

Wed Nov 14, 2001 1:07 am

Well, not exactly... I just read this on udn.com.tw and they said that they're going to change the white belly to "the evergreen green" and there will be orange coloured "stripes" on the fuselage... the tail will remain the same...

Didn't have a pic on the site but there will be a launch of the new colour scheme on 20NOV in their TPE hanger... and there will be a 744 freshly painted on display...

Do you think it actually looks better with a green belly??

Regards

Jimmy

While the current livery isn't outstanding in any way, I'm not sure the modifications will be an improvement.... but I'll wait to see it before I pass judgement.

I Loved The Previous Dark EVA Tail Livery

Wed Nov 14, 2001 7:07 am

EVA once had a darkblue or darkgreen tail with a grass green EVA globe and a orange penstripe at the rear. Thát was a sophisticated livery! And imagine thát livery with a green belly: Superb!!! (look at page 85 of John K. Morton's "Flying Colours" book).

I do not like the white logo on the current EVA tail. Too remarkable just like LOT Polish Airlines. They have also a too huge white ball logo on their tail....cheap!

I hope it doesn't look anything like PIA's current colour scheme.

Air Orange

Wed Nov 14, 2001 9:21 am

Hi!

EVA Air changed their initial paint scheme (the dark green tail one with dark green "EVA" and light green "AIR" titles) because it doen't stand out. And all people can see from a distance is a dark green tail... So afterwards they changed the paintscheme to the current one, reflecting 100% of the EVERGREEN GROUP CIS...

I think it's unique... not many airlines use green as their main colour... and it sure does reflect the Evergreen Group attitude...

but what i don't understand is the "orange stripe" thingy... cuz the current cheatline is green with a bit of orange in the front above the letter "E"...

Anyways enough of my rant...

Cheers

According to reliable sources who has close relationships with EVA Air saying that EVA Air may only change the font for both English and Chinese title, and you may not noticed that EVA changed their livery.

EVA Air is also considering to "lower the appearance of Green colour". Many people treat this "quote" as to distant its political relationships with Taiwan's DPP, current ruling party, supports Taiwan independence. EVA has denied the related reports about the political relationships.

EVA Air's current livery is classy. Perhaps the addition of some "Cathay Pacific" light green to the underside or even upper side of the fuselage. I hope they don't get gaudy with it.

I for one think that a green belly with some orange paint on the fuselage would be a huge improvement over the current scheme.

The pin-stripe on the fuselage now does not even warrant a second glance - it is too insignificant to make a statement.

The tail colours are just fine - both the current one and the very short-lived original dark green one (I prefer this).

All said and done, EVA Air does have superb inflight service!

Air Taiwan - do you know if they will paint the MD-11 (passenger version) in the new colours too?

According to their staff, they will be painting ALL their aircraft (ie including cargo) into the new livery...

Here's a link on China Times, a Taiwanese newspaper with a picture of the new colours...

what do you think? i think it's pretty ugly... (my own opinion)

It does look rather tacky...it needs to have less green than that on the fuselage, more like how BA have it..

Here is the pic, btw. I don't think its that bad, actually. Perhaps one of you Photoshop wizzes could get rid of the gap between the green and the orange stripe, or perhaps cut the green down a bit (like BA or Swissair), keeping the orange stripe, of course. Perhaps an all gree fuselage, too, with the orange stripe.

Hmmm...I'll obviously have to make my final decision when I see it in person, but I, for one, think that the new scheme looks good and is an improvement on the (boring) old one.

I must say that from the picture, I am disappointed. I was hoping that the orange cheatline would be bolder, and possibly the green underbelly would be of a darker shade.

Right now, it looks straight out of their shipping containers.

I will of course be keen to see the real thing and then perhaps change my opinion. It would possibly look far better on the B767s and MD-11s than on the B744s.

Not modern.
Not impressive.
No design improvement at all.
Looks like a design from the mid 80s.

Only good thing about it is that one of the boring all-white schemes is gone.

Well, judging by the general response to this thread, my guess is that they'll abandon this scheme before they even apply it to all their aircraft!! Either they'll revert to the old one, or they'll have to come up with something better (just like Delta!).

I'm sure any designer with a little imagination could come up with something trendier, smarter...just something better looking!!!

Landor?

Thu Nov 22, 2001 11:09 pm

Hi Jim1126,
What I was referring to is the current new colours (that everyone doesn't seem to love at all...). I don't think they're designed by Landor, it's so... Evergreen... So since all the media design and publications within the Evergreen Group (Hotels, Airlines, Sea Lines, Security, Road transport, etc etc) are handled by Evergreen International, I thought maybe the new modifications were designed by them...

Also, I didn't find EVA Air on the list on Landor's website... I read it somewhere but I forgot (it's not Landor), I'll find out...

just for reference. Landor's website

Best Regards

When EVA first started, they had Landor do the identity. However they only had Landor design a total of less than 30 things (I think 27), as compared to the hundreds and thousands Landor did for other big cases, like BA in the 80s.

(source: some old issue of Commonwealth magazine... the one taiwanese magazine that's going downhill every year Big grin )

In a way we can't pick on EVA, because every time they changed they changed for legitimate reasons - to make it more easily identifiable to lay people.

But of course it's very LKK and very SPP, in taiwanese lingo, nothing graceful. That's the impression EVA gives to a lot of us, really, even if one of their planes made it in that U2 video. Big grin Big grin Big grin

My favorite is the very first scheme, here's a pic for your reference:



B-16602, B767-35E, (C) Nobuhiko Hirai http://www.nhirai.com

Isn't B-16401 EVA's first 744? I think I've flown on it twice or thrice.
