Here are two shots of the same aircraft. Which one do you think looks better?  Big grin

This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

I think I'd rather spot the Delta Air Lines aircraft but fly on the Song one. That Song livery looks pretty awful IMHO.

Delta for sure! I don't understand why Delta is putting its' newest 757's into Song's paintscheme, and their also putting aircraft that were in the new-new paint scheme, why not use older aircraft that are in the old-old or old-new?

Just a guess, but I'd assume they opted for the newer 75s as an accounting tactic. The books could be "cooked" to reflect the depreciation on the aircraft. Any thouhts?

No comment. If you come from Glasgow and follow football (soccer), you give away too much about yourself by answering that  Smile.

If the aircraft makes money for both mainline DL and Song then both liveries are equally attractive.

Folks, I'm talking about the aesthetic attractiveness of these two liveries. How much money is made in each livery shouldn't enter into the equation.

I'd pick the standard Delta colors for sure. Song would look better if they had used some blue as an accent color like they have on the website.

Fine with me and Song was very best new colors than of Delta. I think about of those 757 aircraft will be painted in ATL hangar.
