In most points I'm inclined to agree with you, except PIA and American in the "best" category...

I know American's livery is a classic, but I - plain and simple - don't like it. And PIA's new livery - I'll just repeat what my first thought was when I saw it: they forgot to paint the plane...

But I agree with all your other choices.

Frank

Here's some more I forgot:

-El Al
-Lauda
-Korean Air
-All Nippon Airways (ANA)

The reason I included PIA was because it kind of reminds me of El Al's.

The reason I don't think Klm's is that good is because it is kind of a litte to bluish.

Yanks, it can't be "too blueish". If it's blue, it's blue, and if not, it's not, there's no maybe or too much involved here.

Best:

Alitalia - makes the 777 look sexy and classy
El Al - Same, and it has the curves

Worst:

PIA - just plain sucks

Delta Wavy Gravy is my vote for worst color scheme. This is just too much white for my taste. Although I don't think that it's too bad on the smaller aircraft (737s, MD-80/90)

If Delta maybe paint the under belly and change the tail logo, I would like it better, even though it's not that bad right now.

Of course I go through mood changes monthly, but right now I am in love with the AF 777-300ER!  Smile

If the PIA livery had a tad more green it would be nice.

You guys that have AA on your worst list have obviously never seen the T7 up close and personal as I do every weekend at DFW. These machines are stunning, especially when new and in ideal light.

I think I like it best in Boeing colors. I also really like the Japan Air Systems scheme shown a few posts back. But for the first few weeks they have it, this scheme will look good, after that.....well it is Air France. Smile/happy/getting dizzy Nice shot Royal.

Being pro-Boeing as I am, I think a 777 is beautiful in just about any scheme, but here are my pros and cons nonetheless. Mind you, my opinion on this may change next week:

Yay schemes!  Smile

I think that BA World Colours on a 777 were just amazing  Wow!
BA World Colours, JAS, and Vietnam get my vote for being the best

Best (in no order):
-BA World Colours
-JAS
-Delta and Wavy Gravy
-Singapore
-Vietnam
-AA
-Emirates
-Kuwaiti
-El Al
-Saudi
-CO

Okay:
-Malaysia
-Delta Ron Howard/Interim/90's
-UAL
-JAL
-Korean
-PIA

Worst:
-AF (the worst - what a waste of space!)  Pissed
-KLM

-Will
P.S. On a side note, other than BA, Delta, and JAS, have any other 777s been painted over (besides Boeing "show-models"  Laugh out loud )?

You forgot one which has to be one of the ugliest 777 schemes ever: the Air Algerie/Khalifa scheme. Now it takes an awful lot to get a bad livery on a 777, but that one was simply awful

Those I really like:

Vietnam - top of my "must see" list
New JAL scheme
Singapore Airlines
Asiana
Varig
Saudi Arabian
Emirates

Those I think will look great in future:
Qatar
Kenya Airways (not too long to wait!)


Those I'm not too keen on:

ANA - getting tired. Need to try something new!
Old JAL scheme - much the same reason
Alitalia - again, getting tired
Kuwait Airways: not the world's most imaginative airline, are we?

The 777-200 is one of the very few airplanes that beside the 747 looks great or at least good in almost every scheme.

Asiana, Saudi Arabian, Lauda Air, KLM, Korean Air, United and American´s 772s all look great. Vietnam, BA, China Southern and CX are fine.

The only 777-200s I really don´t like are Air China´s, Egyptair´s, Aeroflot´s and the Air Europe duo that´s history now (with the exception the 777s days in these airlines are numbered anyway).

Air France´s, Alitalia´s, Thai´s, Emirates´, Continental´s, Kuwait´s and SIA´s 777s are so-so for me, their schemes are certainly not tailormade for this aircraft. AFs livery on the 777-300 emphasizes that clearly. Its the opposite of a good-looker. Long cheatlines don´t look good on the unbalanced design of the 773 as well, that makes Thai´s and SIAs 773s ugly.

mexicana757, I will agree with you on the Alitalia and Air France schemes, but I think the new Pakistani is pretty good. It really reminds of the great El Al scheme.
