The sweetest plane to grace our skies, but the livery  Crying. I think they could have come up with something more flattering for this bird.

EDIT: I would prefer you vote on ugliest livery than ugliest liver.  Wink/being sarcastic

Lufthansa-now before everyone attacks me, I just think they just need to revamp their image aliitle bit.

I know they are a fantastic airline but how long have their aircraft been wearing that livery?

It is a tie between the DC9 in the new Northwest silver colors and the purple on the B737s that Southwest has now. Ugly.

Do you think they will introduce a new livery. A was kinda hoping they would do that when they introduced their A340-600s. If they do it would probably in a few years when they get their new A380s (this may sound odd, but their livery actually looks good on the A380 for Airbus photos). What do you think?

No doubt about it - a CRJ in NW livery is the ugliest thing to be found at CAE.

Hi EZYCrew

I think AF's livery is a classic. I really like it on their long-haul jets. I think they should keep it

I didn't say the silver NW DC9 and WN 737 with the purple on the bottom looked like each other, they're just tied as the ugliest livery at my airport.

i agree EA777

that is probaly the only aircraft besides the 737-300 that lufthansas livery looks good on.

I do think they will be realsing a new livery soon probaly on one of thier new aircraft when they get a delivery or when a plane gos in for a check up.

Champion Air 727 ugly? man if was to up to you all and your favorite liveries I think I would throw away my camera away for good! .. (most) of those above are fun liveries to see

at MIA the ugliest ones.. well there are just too many!

as beautiful as the DC10 is.. these 2 liveries make it look like some kind of flying tampon or something

Centurion & Gemini air cargo

others that were great are now ugly and mickey mouse

TACA
Mexicana
Copa/Continental

but still the ugliest ones are probably:

Falcon Air
Miami Air (new one)

and I'm sure im forgetting a few
As you can see folks, Miami is not the land of colorful/exotic airlines no more, unfortunately

At EWR I would say Song and Southeast are the worst. Air India is close behind.
In TUS I would say Aero California and Aero Litoreal are pretty bad. Hope I spelt those two right.

YYZ - Yes, All Canada Express is a nasty looking airplane. Also ZIP when they were dropping in here and there. What a nasty looking paintjob.

Air Canada's paintjob is boring but not ugly.

I actually liked LHs livery pre-eurowhite with the cheatline, blacknose, and silver belly.

And as was discussed in a topic a couple of weeks ago, I think Austrian made a boo boo by going with two different shades of blue on their new livery. Now that's Yuck!!!  Nuts

Here at BOI, the worst, most plain I would have to go with the older UPS paint scheme. Brown/white dull on 757. Now the new scheme looks really good on the '57! Big Sky's Black and white Metros are a close 2nd.

At my home airport, Rionegro, Colombia (SKRG)(MDE), Medellin's int'l airport, we get tons of daily Avianca MD - 83, 757s and Fokker 50s.

When they had the old "red scheme" the airport was a lot more interesting than it is today; having now all the fleet painted in that white with gray boaring Summa alliance livery, things are waaay different. So my vote goes for Avianca at Medellín/Rionegro.

This "Continental" Connection livery seems to visit Kalamazoo quite a bit (at least every other day, if not once a day). The 1900's that are actually painted in CO's real livery look much nicer.

Frontier Airlines - The animals are OK, but writing your name in big letters across the plane is very unclassy. If all airlines did this, it would be hell, what would be the point of going to look at the planes or to take it's picture.

Not that I dislike the airline, in fact I'm really rooting for them now that they've announced expansion into long range jets and future flights to the Caribbean, the US and Europe... but their livery is kinda plain and ordinary.. it could do with a lift; It's Canjet;
