It's definitely better than the EXTREMELY bland old scheme; professional without being too flashy. But I have to agree here: it is too much like all the other liveries out there.

I like it a lot! It looks kind of like a mix between Delta and Aeromexico. See what I mean:

I think it looks very sharp and professional. The titles could be a bit bigger, but overall quite nice. Maybe Aeroflot WANTED a less original scheme as they are trying to overhaul thier ex-Soviet era image. Looking like some of the SkyTeam carriers (the alliance Aeroflot would like to join) goes along way to achieving that goal.

Very nice. I love the tail! Big step up from the random blotches of paint that Delta later ripped off....

I have to say that although I really like these new colours. I liked the old Soviet ones and the image they gave. Russia's Soviet past is something to be proud of, but, people are desperate to move away from it.

At least Air China still have an authoritarian look about their colour scheme.

It is nice color scheme, but hammer and sackle are still left on it, so I doubt they want to drop old Soviet symbolisms. Somewhere (in this forum) I've seen proposals for new symbol, which included star with wings, eagle, etc. Do you know what happened to these?

B747-4U3, Russia's Soviet past is as much "something to be proud of" as German nazi past is. Soviet Union killed more people than nazi Germany and their methods of torturing and exiling and killing were often even worse. I don't know why some people, especially in western Europe respects Soviet Union, yet at same time they denounces nazi Germany for being cruel. Probably because nazis occupied those nations in western Europe, while Soviets only "some worthless nations from the east"...

Somewhere on airliners.net, I read that Aeroflot dropping hammer and sickle would be like Pan Am havng dropped the globe. I think that hits the nail on the head, communism or not.

Very nice colors indeed. I just hope they will stick to this color scheme from now on and that they stop changing it every now and then.

Way to go Aeroflot !!!!!

The new livery looks a bit like the idea by Lila Design..

So do we have this new livery thanks to Lila Design?

i think this cs will help bring the airline into the 21st century.  Big thumbs up the former one was really dated. it also brought back memories of the former soviet government.

Yeah, I have to admit, the first thing I thought when I saw it was "Haven't I seen this before on airliners.net by one of the livery designers?"

Nice livery, but still looks vaguely familiar

Nice? Indeed it is, I was surprised to have it looking so well especial since I wasn't much impressed at first by the livery presented first by Lila Design.

Maybe we'll hear from AirOrange and see if Lila Design's ideas helped with this livery... even if it didn't, they must have seen the idea for it to be so close to their new livery.
