Best Looking 737

Fri Sep 19, 2003 3:24 pm

In my opinion this is the best colour scheme I have seen on a 737. Which one is your favorite???

It's funny you mention this topic. Just tonight, I was thinking how in terms of livery and proportions, AA's 738's are inordinately attractive to my eyes.

And though it doesn't really count as a regular liveried jet, you can't say this isn't one fine looking plane:

Nah, I think the Westjet with winglets is the best looking 737!  Big grin

It's a tie between wingletted 737-700/800s, and the venerable 737-200.

The 732 is simply cute, I do love it and of course I'm biased to the ones in Aloha's scheme.  Smile

I also love the way the thrust reversers deploy on landing. Very neat. This aircraft is the younger brother/sister of the 727 and you gotta love it for that as well.

My favourite is the 737-800 in American Airlines' livery. AA livery looks super on any jet i love it.

Best looking 737? PSA's "Grinning Bird" It doesn't matter which livery graced their 737s. The smile says it all, and looked the best on a BOEING jet 737 or 727.

Sorry guys, but this one is the best. And it's elegant style will last a lot longer than many of those mentioned above.

Airtran looks great.I think Virgin Blue 737-800s look great they are a change from the plain white that is so common.

I also think that new Airtran 737 is amazing. I really like their livery, I also think the 737-800's look nice in the new Delta colours. Thats just what i think about it.

I have to say that LOT's 737 are not as greacefull as their 767. But no doubt they are still very good looking airplanes.

Frontier's old color scheme was GREAT. Currently, for me it's a tie between KLM and AA.. And ANY aircraft in BA's early/mid '90's color scheme..
Finally made it to an airline mecca!

I agree with N844AA, the AA bare metal scheme looks great on their 738s.

If airtran goes for 713s that 73G in their livery may not happen.  Big grin

For PSA fans:
What would be a good PSA 737 make-over.
Thinner cheatlines and cutoff, like China
Eastern or China Southern-Humm...I wonder.
And a reversed vertical tail signature like
the old PSA lugguge tags.

Enjoy

agree with western Simpsons colours, it looks funky, rest just plain not attractive to the eyes, especially AA
