I'm getting FedEx vibes from that JetStar livery.

I think the 787 looks very impressive in both the Qantas and Jetstar liveries!

To be honest, I think the Jetstar images look quite UNimpressive, even though I do like the Jetstar livery on the A320s.

The Qantas version looks dated to my eyes, like something out of the late 1980s. I love the Qantas livery, but I expected it would look more modern on the 787.

These images left me feeling surprisingly flat.

The tail on the Qantas plane doesnt seem "red" enough. Looks faded out, but I doubt that is how their 787's will look. I imagine the tail will be nice and vivid with its red colors!

For some reason the JetStar pic at first glance made me think of the next generation of 737s (73E) - more than any 787 pic I have seen before.

I'm not big on carrier livery, personally don't care if it was as simple as a titanium gray body with a gold tailfin. I can be impressed but I generally do not care.

the belly of that 787 looks like something from an airbus. It doesn't look like the rest of the Boeings

I hope this won't start an A vs B war, it was just an observation just like airbus changed the window design on their A350 to something that looks like the 787's

It used to, but they Airbus'd. It used to be streamlines, now it's like a cancerous growth, and with Jetstar's dumb livery, it looks lame.

QF looks good on it though, but I'd like to see QF do something to modernize the livery for 787 by 2009, maybe something with a gradiant...

When will people learn to just write QF and not worry about the missing U. I mean, it's not like adding a U to QANTAS makes it any more of a real word.

This is the first rendition I've seen of an angled drawing for the 787. The wing on the 748 was impressive enough, but it's just darn sexy on the two engined 787. Ooo....feeling a little puffy now.  Silly

Has anyone else noticed the two versions of Jetstar livery? One which is the current standard JQ livery, and the other says "Jetstar International". Should we read anything into this?

Yes I'm well aware of that ... have commented on JQ International in other threads ...

I was just wondering why the two variations of liveries? In particular why the normal JQ livery was presented when there will be a new distinctive JQ International livery, or does does this mean JQ domestic / trans-Tasman will receive 787s too?
