Anyone Seen Air India's Livery?

Thu Nov 25, 1999 12:47 am

Anyone seen Air India's livery? I know its old, but it has held up through the years, and i have never seen anyone individually paint their windows. Quite unique, if you havent seen it, do a search on this sight, and tell me what you think. The 747-400 seems to look the best with it. Aside from that one, my favorites are, in no particular order:

Continental (new)
Singapore
Cathay Pacific (new)
Saudi Arabian (new)
Royal Jordanian
American
British Airways (old Speed Wing)
Garuda Indonesia
Varig (new)
Lan Chile (new)

I would think the Air India's livery of the individually painted windows looks a little old and out-dated.. dunno. just my opinion

But no ones done the individual window treatments before as far as I know, and it still looks unique. I agree, overall it needs some updating, the lettering and tail designs, but I think the individually painted windows should stay. Thanks for your opinion though   Maybe you would have liked their experimental livery, Eurowhite plane with red sash on tail.

Good choices! Yes, I agree, Saudia has one of, if not THE BEST liveries of any Non US Airline, and would definitely be a contender for BEST livery, period!

Alaska's livery is sharp! I remember I was just a junior in high school when it came out....all those years ago....
Too bad they backed out of the MD-90 order, those would have been SHARP with the nice ALASKA logo adorning the fuselage and Eskimo on the tail....

You have good taste in liveries and asthetics!!!!!
Excellent choices. I always marvel at Air New Zealand whenever I see one...the gradient fill from blue to green on the tail is classy, and sharp, and is definitely an eye catcher.

Interesting observation. You don't suppose that Lufthansa's A340 fleet has anything to do with that do you?
Good choices of liveries! Although, Air France never did anything for me, all the other ones are nice.

MattD & LH A340 Fleet

Thu Nov 25, 1999 5:31 am

MattD, why would LHs A340 fleet have anything to do with them not using the 777? Look at Air France, they operate them side by side and say that they use them for two different types of missions. Of all the Airbus partners (I mean France, not Air France, but they are state owned, so you know what I mean!   ), you would think that AF would be the last airline to buy a Boeing when a comparable Airbus is available. Others do this too!

My Top 10 airline color schemes:

1) Finnair (new c/s, love the shiny white and the cool blue)
2) Cathay Pacific (undoubtedly one of the most stylish c/s)
3) Saudia (in the same category as Cathay)
4) Virgin Atlantic (old and new c/s)
5) Lan Chile (cool, modern and imaginative)
6) BA (love the different tails, perks things up a bit)
7) Canadian (new c/s, love the goose tail)
8) Malev Hungarian Airlines (color scheme is really cool)
9) Qantas (same type as Finnair's, mostly white except for tail)
10) American (older c/s, but it's nice)
