No wonder!!

Delta's newest livery seems to remind me of Aeroflot for some strange reason, the reason being the russain flag.

thanks anyway

I call them Deltaflot because of their "frumpy grumpy East Bloc who cares" attitude towards it's passengers. Who knows maybe they've changed. Haven't flown them for two years.

As people said, the newest Delta livery and Aeroflot's livery are similar and very ugly.

It may also be how many ATL residents feel about DL and the general lack of much competition out of ATL.

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

I'll agree the Aeroflot livery is ugly.. but the Delta livery I think looks great.
