Virgins New Livery

Tue Sep 21, 1999 4:07 am

Has anyone seen Virgins new livery design at any airports? Does it look as good as the old one? If you haven't seen the new livery you can go to Virgins website at:

The planes have a silver body with metallic red....instead of white and normal red.
Does anybody know if there are any pictures of it on the picture database here?

B777-300, all the pictures are there for everyone to see, I don't know why you couldn't just look them up!

I hated it at first, but I must admit, it's starting to grow on me.

I saw it in LHR about 5 weeks ago on a 747-400 and a couple of A340s, and I think it's U-G-L-Y. I don't like the new lettering, nor do I like the new tail design. At least they kept the familiar Virgin logo.

I saw it at Newark International Airport quite a few times, well i have to say is that i "HATE" the way it looks. They should have left the old color scheme alone, Virgin looked better that way!!!!!!!!

It's one of the best paint scheme.
