New Colors

Wed Dec 17, 2003 7:26 am

There have been some really amazing new Colors out there recently! I love the new Aeroflot colors. They are international and modern but still "fly the flag" in a great way. I also love the Gulf Air with that huge gold falcon on the tail. Whats your fav?

I guess I'm all alone here, recent new liveries I only care to see would be:

TAME, Gulf Air, DHL, UPS and new NW at least it's not all white IMO...

Star Alliance, CRAP
new Austrian, CRAP
new JAL, total CRAP
new KLM, not better than the old

I have to say that my most favorite new liveries are:
Delta (not particularly new, but a very classy livery)
JAL (I love the bold statement made by the rising sun on the tail)
Northwest (a very non-traditional and modern livery)

Well, at first I didn't like the new NWA livery, but now I absolutely love it. Big grin

I didn't think the new Austrian livery was as bad as other people thought.

Delta's new colours are already 3 years old, but I guess it still counts since 50% of the fleet is still in old colours, so I'd vote for that too.

Can't remember the others at the moment.

I personally really like the new NW colors, its awesome how it changes in different lighting, sometimes gold, others silver, others grey. It really gives a modern and sharp look to their older fleet.

The new austrian livery has so much potential but the light blue underbelly is horrendous.

The new KLM doesnt do much for me, its no big change from the old.

New aeroflot livery is kick ass.

New DHL livery is hideous,

New UPS is average, kinda unbalanced but its growing on me.

Star alliance and JAL are just too plain.

My 2 cents.

SAS is a pretty dramatic departure from the previous livery, but good:

MIAMIx707,

Once again agree with you. Added to my respected users !

Just do not give me any of that extremely tasteless all-white idea that from mid-90s started somehow hypnotizing all airline's publicists !!

Give me new concepts like ARCS and semicircles like on UPS' and Gulf Air's new livery and I'll be satisfied.

Although I do respect, without loving them, those liveries that have national value even though if their all in super boring white.

Regards,

The new color scheme of Aeroflot is nice but the best among the newly commisioned schemes is the Northwest one. It's smart, elegant and definitely has a distinctive character. JAL's new tail is cool but they could have done something on the fuselage.

NWAA330:
New DHL livery is hideous

I'm sad to say, but I couldn't agree more. It does however stand out from all the rest of the airplanes, in fact, I think you can almost see that it is a DHL plane even if it is at 10,000 feet and you are on the ground  Wink/being sarcastic

The colour functions as a fog light too... you almost see the colour before you see the landing lights and beacons when it's heavy fog...  Laugh out loud
Read between the lines.

TWISTEDWHISPER,

And that's what DHL are all about. They didn't apply the new livery thinking wether people would see it was a masterpiece or not. They did it only for pure MARKETING and publicity. People associate strong colors with simple ideas, and they're trying to make a profit out of that.

Bongo,

AV may have applied the new colors in a bad moment, but it'll be worth it in a long term. White painted aircraft are much more easy to maintain than red. Plus, white makes airplanes lighter, hence more economy.

Aesthetically, I'm positively sure they could have come up with something brilliant, something that really accomplished publicity's main target: transmit an idea. Publicits have to play with psychological facts and reach the level where they can create beauty through simplicity. But they didn't. Most people don't even recognize it's a butterfly.

With those three colors they could have created an aesthetic masterpiece, with national value and that could be easily associated with AV. They could have thought in a new and original concept, and you, more than anyone else, know that we count here with lots of creativity and imagination.

But I guess they were economically limited and had to come up with sothing simple.

Regards,

UPS! They took me by surprise. I didn't expect to see a new UPS logo for the next 50 years or so, but it's a great change!

Not keen on the new Austrian colors - blue and red just don't fit  Smile/happy/getting dizzy. My favourite new livery would have to be the new UPS one:
