I like it!!! It looks too similar to Finnair & the old Sabena liveries. But looks better than their previous crap.

I disagree. I think their past liveries were much classier. This is sh*t.

Does AR fly to MIA or NYC?

It seems that bland, white color schemes are the way of the future. Sad isn't it? Personally, I thought the old one was better.

The old livery (before Iberia's look) was really good; the newest one is just boring, there's nothing beautiful in it!!

I bitterly miss the livery that should never have been changed (repetition...)

Gosh! that is an ugly paint scheme for sure!
Any of the previous ones were a thousand times better  Crying
With the many great creative people Argentinians have in their country, couldn´t they just come up with something better than that crapy white thing?
I hope they can see and mend that big error before it's too late..

Personally I think their previous livery was better than this livery which looks like crap w/ that Eurowhite. I think that Aerolineas Argentinas made a wrong decsion in choosing their new livery.

I like the tail. They could have used a more imaginative typeface for the name though. Overall, not as good as the current/outgoing livery.

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

Makes me yawn. Boring, spiritless, phantasyless, oldfashioned 80s style. Could be a cheap subsidiary of Lufthansa.

Why did they change, the old one in Iberia style stood out of the crowd, this one just just sinks down in the middle of the soup.

Absolute crap. You can feel the management was busy saving the company in the last years and had no time to think. This type of design I can do 20 a day, and I´ll charge every customer, lets say - 10000 Dollars? Please give me a call, one out of two airlines on this planet still need to go this way, to have a livery like everybody, so expect them crowding in front of my door soon.

This new scheme SUCKS ASS!

BORING!! No cheatlines!! all we need is yet another boring all white fuselage with a blue tail. No orriginality.

I liked the last one the best- The Wannabe Iberia design in the two blues.

"Go white", what a boring theme for so many airlines by now. At least Aerolineas should have been more creative with the letter design.

Where is the paintscheme? I only see a white aircraft with a blue tail, could be anything. Reminds me of Air Atlanta, or was it Lufthansa? Or the Enutralized Atlas Air colors?

Congratulations for an airline to go the distinctive way again...  Nuts

Cheers,
Tom

L-1001: Nice link, nice design proposal. I guess the Aerolineas management rejected this with the words "Too elegant, too modern. We are the airline of an ailing country and our aircraft have to look like that".

Anyway, what´s the registration of the first 747 in this dreadful paintscheme?

How can anyone come to like this new generation of horribly basic and bland liveries. Doesnt the airline industry give a rat about an individual identity anymore. This is really sad. Yet again another half assed livery.

Not a big fan of Euro-white liveries . . . though there are exceptions to this feeling - Air France being one of them.

The shade of blue in this new livery is beautiful, especially when the engines are similarly painted. Perhaps a significant size rendition of the logo in grey or a deeper blue on the fuselage would complete the ensemble.

Overall, I think the new livery is very classy and projects a more serious business image.

One cannot but help missing the good old liveries though!

Hooooo....hummmmmm.....Yet another un-inspired, minimalist, Eurorwhite whale livery is ready to take to the skies. Like many posters here, I loved the 70/80s era 'AA' design, the Iberia was nice as well. However it now appears that AR in order to save a few $ has decided to join a chorus of carriers that have decided to go down that path started so many years ago, ironically by a US carrier 'Airwest'

the new one looks cheap, the middle one has excellent colors/design (beter than Iberia IMO) and the old one is, well its old. but old is good, like OOC Delta or Astrojet AA

I cannot understand how some people can say the uninspired new livery is "more professional looking". I think the opposite is the case.
Unless you think "professional" means wearing always a grey suit, white shirt and a striped tie, the creativity being restricted to the colours of the stripes of the tie...

Professionalism always means also to be creative, and this colourscheme is the absolute opposite of creative.

what a tragedy, one of the great colour schemes has finally fallen victim to the 'everything must be white with a dark blue tail' epidemic sweeping the aviation world.
How can anyone consider this an improvement - perhaps this appeals more to the younger element who didn't grow up with the traditional schemes ?
So it may look more professional - big deal, just another characterless airline now. Damn shame.
