Welcome.

Air France? New livery? Haven't heard these two in one sentence before. Big grin

Actually, if they had a new livery, they wouldn't paint the old one on the brand new A318's they're receiving. This is for one thing.

The other thing is... is there a need? I think AF's livery has, is, and will be one of the best out there. It's simple and recognizable (at least before Transaero copied it).

But of course one can never know. Maybe they are up to some new artwork.

Regards,

First of all I would like to welcome you to A.net, you'll have a great time here

About AF's livery, I really hope they keep the one they have. I think it looks very stylish, very French

AF´s livery has been out there for more than a quarter century and I think it still looks fresh and up to date, dont you guys think the same? Other airlines (UA, BA) have changed theirs for at least 3 times and don´t look as gorgeous!! ooops! sorry BA and UA lovers!

Happy Contrails!

Yeah, the AF livery is a classic, too bad you never see it. Do they ever clean their planes?

I really don't see any beauty at all in their livery scheme. I'm sure they have imagination, but have not used it up till now  Smile

New scheme?! Why, their current scheme is so colorful and imaginative, I can't see why they'd want to rid of it! I mean, look at that fusulage... all that white! Brilliant!

At least their dirty planes have some contrast to them.  Yeah sure

They don't need to make a colourful livery. The one they have is great, and I find the tail very imaginative. Their livery is old, but you cannot deny it still looks "actual" and stylish.
