Widget, Interim, Or The Wavy Gravy?

Sun Dec 21, 2003 9:32 am

Delta has flip flopped it's color scheme over the years, and Im just curious to see who likes which one the best? My opinion is the Widget was nice, the Interim scheme was horrible, and now the Wavy Gravy is very classy. The Wavy Gravy has my vote. What do you think?

Right, but you must admit that if we had both wavy gravy and widget (no interm) it would be nice and what about a wavy gravy tail and widget plane?

Seriously, I like the tail of the "wavy gravy" scheme, find the "Deltaflot" scheme abhorrent, and have a special place in my heart for the Widget because the first airplane I flew on was a DL MD-88 in the Widget scheme.

I'll put in a vote for the Interim scheme- it's not a pure 'Eurowhite' like the Wavy Gravy, and also softens the hard lines and overall dark look of the Widget while retaining a form of the Widget which is a very recognisable corporate logo.

The wavy gravy is nice, but on a/c such as the 777, there just seems to be too much white.

Interim fusulage with the wavy gravy tail. The tail on the new colors has grown on me, but the fusulage is still BORING. Maybe Mikephotos can scare us up a 737 in the above mentioned scheme?  Big grin

I am a big fan of the Widget colors. I used to dislike the Interim colors but now I like them after the wavy colors came out.
Still I think Delta Widget colors are the best.

Delta has missed the boat on color schemes. The widget looked horribly outdated when it began to be phased out in 1997--it should have been retired years before. The interim scheme was really a minor variation of the widget--it looked very un-original and broke no new ground at all stylewise. The wavy gravy doesn't look bad, but a mostly white fuselage is boring and the wavy gravy lacks personality and character.

The wavy tail would look better if they added some kind of cheatline. But why they couldn't've just updated the widget scheme to look a little more modern (like a new font for the D E L T A)?

My god, that looks like a brand new 757 flew through a giant snot cloud.

The Deltaflot/Wavy Gravy is where it's at. That's one nce looking livery, the polished bottom seals the deal.

The widget was tired.

The interim scheme said "We want a change, but heck, we're kinda conservative here in Atlanta, and want to stay the same, too." ("Cain't git rid uh thuh widget!")

The current euro-white fuselage and 'dish rag' tail says absolutely nothing. My understanding is that it was meant to visually link Delta with partner Air France. But Air France has a stylized French flag on the tail of their planes. What the hell flag is Delta flying???

Widget. Interim. Dish rag. Consistently, the least original looking fleet of any U.S. major.

Doesn't interim mean temperary? The 1997 colors were not MEANT to be temperary so I don't know why people call it such. The new wavy gravy is too boring for me.

I'll have to disagree with most of you guys. Although the widget scheme is a real classic, it is not timeless. It has acquired a lot of value for many of you throughout time, but for some that haven't been seeing it over the years, it simply gives the image of "old-fashioned" and the airline looks as if it was still stuck in the late 70s. They obviously had to move on.

Still, an evolutioned widget could have been nice.

Tha other two are acceptable.

My vote goes for Wavy tail, very classy and the uneven silver fuselage gives them a different touch.

RE: Widget, Interim, Or The Wavy Gravy?

Mon Dec 22, 2003 4:30 am

Well, here's my opinion:

The Widget scheme is a classic. It's been around since as far back as the 1960s, with only a few modifications made over the years.

Before 1997 came around, Delta's widget and AA's colours were my favourites because that's what I always saw at SLC when I was younger. The old Widget scheme looked excellent on the 727, 757, 767, and MD-90, it also looked good on the 737 classics, but I don't think it would have quite worked on a 777 or 737 NG today.

In 1997, when the interim scheme was introduced, I remember someone said that the interim scheme was the most horrible thing they had ever seen. So I went out to SLC (remember, this was before 9/11), sometime in late 1997 or early 1998, and went into the terminal to have a look for myself. A few new planes were in the scheme and I really liked it.

The interim scheme retained alot of the Delta feel to it. It still had the cheatline, and that red cheatline that many people forget about had been moved to the bottom of the blue cheatline, and widened at the nose. The tail was dark as well, feeling very Delta-like. And perhaps the thing I loved the most was that two-tone "Delta Air Lines" on the front of the fuselage just above the cheatline. The new font was beautiful.

At the time, I liked both colour schemes equally. The old one was a classic, and the interim retained so many elements of the Delta look that I didn't consider it bad at all.

The interim scheme looked best on the 737 NG and 727, and also on some 757s and 767s as well.


In 2000, I was horrified when the wavy gravy scheme came out. The tail looked okay, but the cheatline was gone, and the engines looked terrible. It looked like they hadn't finished painting them all the way. The enging paint was very unoriginal. But the worst casualty of all was my beloved "Delta Air Lines" two tone font that I had loved so much on the 1997 scheme, now replaced by a single, larger "Delta". I hated it.

But after a while it began to grow on me. Especially after I saw the first 727s painted in the scheme. That's what did it. That scheme looked like it was made to be worn by that plane. It made the bird look like it was fresh from the factory, sleek and beautiful and clean. That finally had me sold.

And it looked great on the 757 as well, and the 737 NG, and especially the MD-80. The jury was still out on the 767 though. But on some planes it looked fantastic. It looked best on the 727.


Today, I like the wavy gravy much better. It's an excellent scheme. But I also like the interim and the widget schemes as well. All three liveries brought out the best on certain aircraft.

It's interesting to note that every livery looked great on the 727. Maybe it's just because the 727 is a beautiful plane.  Wink/being sarcastic


Now, I understand that it's in Delta's best interest to have a unified colour scheme across its entire fleet, but what I'd really love to see is all three colourschemes remain on certain aircraft. And have Delta continue to use the three liveries together. After all, certain aircraft just wear a certain scheme better.

Leave all 737 classics, some 757s, and all MD-90s in the Widget scheme.

Leave some 737 NG, 757, and 767 in the interim scheme...

And paint the other 737 NGs, 777, some 767 and 757 and MD-80 in the Wavy Gravy scheme. Especially the MD-80.

This gives a mix of each livery on the planes that wore them best. In fact, that's kind of what Delta's fleet looks like right now anyway. The 767 perhaps wore the 1997 scheme the best out of all three. And the MD-80 is remarkably sleek in the wavy gravy colours.

So what's my favourite scheme? All of them together.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Now, if you ask me about Delta Connection, there's no contest. The Widget scheme, and the 1997 scheme, win hands down.

I always thought the Skywest CRJs in the Widget scheme looked really cute. The 1997 scheme made them look classy. But the wavy gravy? Far too much white. Not as interesting or original.

727Lover, I'm not sure, but I think the "interim" was a term adopted only after it became clear that Delta wasn't going to stick around with the scheme. In other words, when it debuted, it could have very well been the replacement, but the only reason it ended up being temporary was because when you compare the widget scheme and all the years it accumulated and the wavy gravy which is clearly Delta's new look for 2000, it obviously forces one to label the mid-scheme as transitionary. I don't know of any airline who would spend millions and millions to "prepare" the world for their new colors, by introducing a pre-planned short lived one.

727Lover, from 1997-1999, Delta's new colourscheme WAS the "new colours".

I only started calling them "interim" when the new new colours debuted in 2000.

I've heard people describe the widget scheme as the "old old colours" and the 1997 scheme as the "old colours". I've also hear the 1997 scheme dubbed "old-new" and "interim". Likewise, the new colours are either called "new colours" or "new new colours".

But until 2000, everyone basically thought that the 1997 scheme was here to stay.

I like the wavy gravy b/c of the silver belly, but it still needs more color, and they could have even kept the nice rounded widget (Ex: a small one behind the cockpit windows) which I really thought was a nice look.

For nostalgia, they should keep say one of each type in widget (though I was never a huge fan), sort of what WN will do with the Ochre 73Gs by keeping 3. Other than that, the interim scheme is really classy (especially MD-11) and beats the hell out of the current blah

I think I am in the minority here. I really like the Deltaflot color scheme best of all. I see what people are saying about it being very white, but it doesnt bother me any. The widget was definitely a trademark piece of the Delta identity and to see it go through this transition is not the easiest to take. I felt the same way about BA's speedbird changing to the speedmarque. But like BA, I quickly adopted the new identity. Kudos to Delta for being very classy and very bold with their livery. Now if the product inside the vessel would only match that ideal...

The only one of the 3 that I don't like is the "interim" colors. I love the classic look of the widget, as it is what was on all of the L1011s that I fell in love with everytime my family drove through Atlanta. At the same time, I like the Deltaflot colors that they are using now. When the planes are clean, that look is gorgeous in my opinion. However, if Delta lets them get as dirty as some of the widget planes did, they will quickly look quite nasty with all of that white.

I like the Interim 97' the most, only if they could have matched up the colors from tail to engine otherwise I like it the best.

New member here. I have learned to like all three color schemes, but I think my preferred liveries are the Widget and the Banner Tail schemes. The Widget is classy and conservative, the interim colors were conservative, but not so classy. The Banner Tail is a little more liberal, appealing to a wider audience, and still classy. Personally, I think they all look good on certain aircraft. The Widget colors look good on 757 and L-1011's, but bad on MD-80's. The interim colors look good on the 757, but horrible on the MD-11 and 727. The Banner colors look great on the MD-11 and the 767/777, but not so hot on the MD-80.

I think that to brighten up the white fuselage, Delta should apply some wavy lines down the fuselage, reminiscent of the '96 Olympic liveries. I think it would compliment the tail and break up the monotonous white fuselage.

RE: Widget, Interim, Or The Wavy Gravy?

At first I took a liking to the interim scheme when it was introduced. When the wavy gravy one came out, I hated it...since then, however, I've come to really like it. Not so much on the 777 or 738, but particularly on the M88, 757, and M11.

Interim's tail, engine cowlings, and fonts, but the cheatline and the forward door logo of the widget livery. Who knows, in another few years the DL execs will change their minds and implement ANOTHER livery change.  Big grin
