and the much discussed about NWA proposal :

Eva should get green belly livery's (picture ?)

Malayia Airlines was also said to study a new livery (pictures ?)

Has Air Malta made a final decision on a new livery yet?

In my opinion the new JAL livery is not bad, but I don't like the Northwest cs.
The red underside of the wings are baad....

Here's Eva's new livery...

I actually like the red wings for NW. It reminds me of the red wings of BEA.

I like both of JAL and NWA liveries. it will be interesting to see NWA planes with those red wings.

I like the NWA one, but can LILA DESIGN make the font a bit more stylish. That font looks too plain. YUCK!!!. But overall, The Plane looks great with Red Wings. 'Twill be interesting.

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
