I am probably biased but the Air New Zealand 744s in the Pacific Wave look pretty good!

I thought they meant 'Standard colour scheme' but as far as special paint schemes go Singapores '006' Tropical livery was good and so are JALs disney series. Wanula dreaming is not bad either

I agree that BA world images look good on the 747 400 !!! Also NW, the combination of grey and red really work well on a 747 400.

If only the 747 wore the Ethiopian Airlines scheme.... Now, that would be a sexy sight!

DEfinitely Virgin. The pictures rally don't do it justice, when you see that silver glinting in the sun. AA would be cool on a 747. For understatedness, I like UAL's scheme, it paints a picture of a 747 ready to get down to business.

I think the European Aviation Aircharter (EAF/YE) 747-200s will look nice if they wear the scheme worn by EAF's BAC 1-11s / 737-200s / A300s.

Shouldn't be long before they're flying charters in Summer '02, so we'll just have to wait and see!

EL-AL's old c/s
It was magnificent: elegant design and striking colors.
I was always deeply impressed when seeing one of their planes, and of course particularly when it was a Jumbo;
the light blue was so beautiful, no photo is able to reproduce it, and I'd like to have some of the original painting!!

My favorite 747 standard scheme would be KLM's for both their 747-300's and -400's. I also like Virgin Atlantic, Air New Zealand and Northwest's color schemes. I like almost every special 747 color scheme. Imagine a Lan Chile 747 in their new color scheme. That would be something worth looking at!
