Eva Air Copying US Airways?

Wed Jun 11, 2003 12:16 pm

I realize that some of you might say it is just the winglet that looks alike, but put grey where green is and blue where white is and it's US Airways all the way. Looks like they even copy on the other side of the world.

I don't know - definitely, I see some great resemblance...but if I saw either livery independently I wouldn't automatically think of the other livery, as is the case with some other airlines.

Thanks for pointing that out, though - it's cool to compare the two!

THE EVA livery is horrible, I know of airlines who have gone from a tacky scheme to classy, but BR are the first to go the other way around.

Yes, there are some similarities, but, in all honesty, how many variations on the cheatline can one have? I'd be a bit more inclined to agree if the tail stripes were similar. Still, it is an interesting idea you brought up.

By the way, U.S Airways have copied the Royal Jordanian Airlines livery style which was introduced in the mid 80's, so .... Smile
