Northwest, I'm getting used to.
I would have to agree. I think of all the recent new liveries, NW
will take some time for me to get used to. Personally, the problem for me is in the tail. Why oh why couldn't they paint the entire thing red? It looks like a cut-off job to me...like they started painting from the top of the tail and ran out of red paint on the way down. I do very much like the fact that they kept the old (however, nicely color-updated) compass-circle logo on the plane, and I like that they enlarged it and made it a distinguishing part of the overall look. Personally, I think it looks best on the A330. I will have to get used to seeing "NWA" painted so boldly on the side of the plane, rather than the old, larger "Northwest." Honestly, I don't hate the new livery...it will just take me some time to get used to it, and I'm sure in time I will.
I liked JAL's new scheme almost immediately. It looks classy.
's scheme will continue to impress me as new types are eventually painted.
...btw, does anyone know if UA
's first-to-be repainted 747-400 has made it to the paint shop yet? It is still due out sometime in November, right?
's new paint leaves much to be desired (no pun intended), however the new uniforms look great!
In my opinion, FedEx's planes are currently in the most need of a new look...but that's just my opinion. They can keep the purple (that is, of course, the signature color), but perhaps with a tweak in shades or application in design.
It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.
