People don't seem to grasp the concept...paint adds weight. Heavier planes don't make as much money. If any new scheme is adopted by NW, it will not include the red wings. Simply too much added weight, cost, and let us not forget how quickly that color will dull out.
The Northwest scheme could look better with their present font (don't give me that friendlier look, no hard edges bs....if that was really the case American would have changed theirs). They also need to add a blue cheatline or something to break up the white and grey.
Of course haven't we discussed these to death already? Ugh
