The Livery Which Never Flew. Which Do You Know?

Wed Feb 05, 2003 8:18 am

Despite design investments, this livery never took off as the airline went bankrupted in 2002:

Which livery samples can you show me which never took off?

For example, there are two experimental LTU liveries which never became official:

Northwest had experimented with an entire light grey fuselage with red lettering (same red tail)... unfortunately there are no pics in the database of this a/c.

Before USAir introduced the silver livery, they had a plane that was silver and had small lines of red, orange, and brown on the front of the fuselage. With the same old USAir logo. Again, I couldnt find any pics in the database of this aircraft.

This carrier ‘Presidential Air’ was going to use A300 equipment for flights to Long Beach from Houston, maybe Chicago, and Atlanta, circa 1996. I recall seeing their advertisements – something like “Fly to Los Angeles* for $99”

* LA’s convenient Long Beach airport. Aahh, they were ahead of JetBlue’s time!!!

Malaysia Airlines 1997 update for its corporate image never got off the ground. Oddly, there was only a video of its planned new livery on its Australian website.

Long overdue, MAS is in fact searching for companies to bid for its new image to be launched soon.

I was thinking of Braniff's new livery for the A320, but when I checked the database it seems that they were actually in service, although not for a long time.

That actually wasn't a BN livery. It was done by Airbus since BN hadn't decided on their new livery.

No one at BN liked that scheme, and most refered to it as the 3ranff scheme.

How about this one? G-BKYA was delivered with this experimental silver fuselage top in 1984, prior to the unveiling of the 'Landor' scheme...

WOW! that BA c/s is great! i wish they had chosen that livery. I think it is even far nicer than their current one. I wonder if that is where Virgin got the idea for their "silver dream machines"!!??haha!

There was a British Caledonian one back in the late 80s, just before BA came onboard. It was featured in the UK edition of Travel Weekly. Unfortunately, in shedding excess baggage over the years, I lost my copy. There were to be four or five "Tartan" tails, highly stylized, and not dissimilar to the Benyhone BA Utopia scheme. The MD11 was to be the launch.

Another was a mid 80s 747 operation out of Stansted, to the Far East. Can't remember the name, Silk or Swan - they hired their employees, but never took off.

Cargolux UK Charter arm Lion Air did fly 747s briefly, 1988, but it's a little known livery.

There must be lots of very short lived liveries that have been long forgotten.

An SU A310-livery designed by Airbus I believe, was only applied on the A310's, but following the crash of SU A310 F-OGQS "Glinka" in 1994, the livery was abandoned and the Airbuses now carry the standard SU-livery

(within a short time however, Aeroflot will unveil a totally new colorscheme / livery as part of a restructuring-program and its 80th birthday Big thumbs up)

Still wish SU went with that Airbus livery....if for no other reason then to get rid of the hammer/sickle....Hope the new scheme they get is nice....anyone hear anything? I thought it was end of January...

SAS had a couple of DC-9-41's 'painted' in a revised livery in the early 80's as an experiment. Also I'm sure Pan Am and Air Canada had a couple of one-off schemes around that time.

Nice samples but they took off once or more, in service or not. But which liveries, intended to become real/serious airlines, never actually were implemented on the aircraft, which liveries never left scratch board for real implementation? Air Switzerland could be such an example.

Swissair had this livery for some hours (!!)  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Original Caption:
HB-IJD never flew with this color scheme, it was applied only for a couple of hours for a press conference introducing bio-food on SR-flights.

Oh those where the times...
