Favorite Livery/Plane Match

Sat Jan 15, 2000 1:02 pm

Here's another fun one for y'all....what livery do you think looks best on which plane? For example, I think Pan Am looked best on a 727, as opposed to a 747 (not that it looked bad on a 747 though).
Here are some of my other faves.
1. USAir MD-80
2. American 737-300 (even though these are gone)
3. AirTran 717
4. Reno Air MD-87
5. Continental 757
6. Northwest MD-80
7. America West (old) A320
8. Delta (old) 737-300

In order of prefence
1. 777-300 in ANA's Wave livery
2. 777-200 in British Airway's livery with a lacy tail (What is this called?!)
3. 737-800 American
4. 757-200 in America West's old livery (the new one is too jazzy)

My definite favourite combos would have to be:
Aer Lingus A330-300 (new colours)
American MD-11 (the detail is excellent, ever notice the red, white and blue stripes on the winglet?)
British Airways 777(Union Flag colours)

This is quite a difficult question actually. Lets see,

707 British Caledonian
717 Air Tran, not like there's much of a choice!
727 British Airways/Comair Scotland
737 Midway
747 El Al new colours
757 Delta Winter Olympics 2002
767 Air Seyshelles
777 Kuwait Airways...very smart
A300 South African
A310 BalairCTA
A319 British Airways
A320 Air Canada Raptors
A321 British Midland
A332 TAM (Without the Red carpet titles)
A333 Aer Lingus
A340 Air Tahiti Nui
MD80 TWA new colours
MD90 JAS
MD11 Saudia Cargo
Tristar Definately Cathay Pacific.
CRJ America West Express.

That must be about it, without going into details about smaller aircraft.

The new Saudia livery is without doubt one of the most elegant to ever grace an airliner. Emirates new 777-300 not bad also...but what I would give for an AA MD11!

The golden Falcon on our aircraft is not bad either!
