Airline Livery - Your Opinion

Wed May 18, 2005 2:10 pm

There's been some talk regarding the livery on America West and US Airways aircraft, and over which is "better."

Which brings me to this topic. What paint jobs do you really think stand out, which ones do you just plain not like?

I like America West and US Airways, I don't like Delta much but I DO like that "75 years" retro job 767. I like the darker gray Northwest, don't like AA or either of the WN styles.

I also really like the blue Korean Air Cargo 747.

Recheck the next days in Polls & Prefs, as the thread might be moved  Wink

OK, here my list (not exclusive, just what comes into my head - let me limit it to five):

Likes -

AI (stunning windows and polished underbelly - the latter not on all a/cs!)

SAA (good use of colors)

UA (I like the new blue one!)

KE (shines out)

Vietnam Airlines (nice blue!)

Don't likes -

FR (their Arrividerci Alitalia on some planes is a symbol of tastelessness)

LH (their Eurowhite is boring, they should take the 70s livery with the preent tail, but paint around the windows and polish their underbellys) - to extend: any plane with the boring Star Alliance Livery

AF (boring, boring, boring - and dirty Big grin )

SAS (see AF)

PK (the older one was much better)!

I prefer airlines that have colourful liverys, like SJ, DJ, TN etc
