What Do You Think Of This Paintscheme?

Thu Feb 26, 2004 12:40 pm

Air Arabia which started operation last October is currently operating 2 A320s leased from ILFC previously operated by Air Malta. They were not painted in the full complete paintscheme, but soon Air Arabia will be recieving its first brand new A320 directly from Airbus which is painted in the full paintsheme.

Below is one of their 2 A320s previously operated by Air Malta which are not painted in the full paintscheme:

As you can see, the fuselage is all white.

Below you will see Air Arabia's first A320 flying in Toulouse painted in the full paintscheme:

You can see the gray. I think it makes it look MUCH MUCH better, what do you all think?

I assume they aren't planning to keep the 2 ex-Air Malta A320s for long which is why they didn't paint them fully, even though they did paint them pretty sufficiently.

Booring! Maybe some more red would give it character.

I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.

I think the bird on the tail closely resembles that of the Silkair one (the Silkair one is just bigger, extending over the whole aircraft tail). Overall, definitely not the worst, but not that smart either.

It's not bad white being the color everyone insists on having on their planes!

U-G-L-Y

They should have held a livery competition for the general public!! Just like what JAS did a few years ago
