Pardon my french,

but I for one think it sucks ass

Their scheme was fine. Now it looks like a big green turd.

Oh well, maybe it hits the mark on Taiwanese aesthetics...as that's what really matters.

I'm not sure that shade of green on 1/2 the aircraft looks that great, but whatever, they're going to look different at least.

They will be easy to spot miles away!

I kind of like it.......the bigger Eva Air tiles is definitely a improvement.

Overkill on the green. They might have done better with a thicker cheatline.

I didn't like it at first, but then in Macau I saw one in person, and decided that it is kind of nice. The photo does not do justice to it.

I prefer the old scheme if you asked me . The green underbelly makes the plane looks very wierd .

It looks TERRIBLE! Honestly, that has to be the ugliest shade of 60's green I have ever seen, especially with that orange stripe. Air Orange! Where are you?!?! This airline needs a NEW look!

hummmm......they may as well paint the whole aircraft green.

I definitely prefer the old scheme, the green makes the plane looks a bit off balance (the bottom half looks too 'heavy' compare to the top...if you get what i mean)

I do like the bigger titles, but that green bottom... hmm, I just don't know. I'll have to go watch our old scheme 744 come into SEA and compare.

I think that's what the Feng Shui consultants ordered and the greens and oranges have something to do with EVERGREEN's base colors.

Oh, you guys. This is just sorta an unflattering camera-angle for the colour scheme, makes it look more, well, `froggier`or somepin' , than it oughtta  Big grin

Okay some may prefer the painted-tail conservative livery

but on the whole, I don't think the new one`s bad at all (though let's admit, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, specially for those who don't like green all that much  Big grin

I've seen it in TPE twice, both times parking next to it. It is okay.

I think the all-green idea ain't bad, except everyone would accuse them of copying Branif.

Anyhow the ultimate problem is whether the conglomerate
EVA belonging to is for-ever green or is has-ever green.

New EVA Scheme: A-la Old Pakistan International?

Wed Feb 06, 2002 2:04 am

Can we say Pakistan International?

Seriously folks, I remember this scheme back at Frankfurt during the late 1980s/early 90s. This 'new' EVA scheme looks -very- similar to the older scheme PIA once flew.

You decide:

As for Feng Shui, I understand the color -red- is considered good luck for 2002. Not green.
