I preferred the old one. It was easier on the eye. This one will take some getting used to, I think.

I don't - the new one doesn't look as military as the old.

I also noticed on their website the new livery for Iran Air. Hard to tell what the design is on the tail.

The previous livery is nicer. The new one looks odd because of the large titles and the antelope on the tail is likewise, too big as well.

The old one was better. It was easy on the eye unlike now and also the older one just looked alot less cluttered than the new one. At least they kept that smart looking gray color... The Oryx is also too big on the tail to actually look good.

Eurowhite just does not do the A380 any justice at all I'm afraid.

Love the retro scheme on the QF 380! Hope this is how she enters into service.

About QR, with the picture, it's hard to tell... And the angle on the plane is not the best to catch the livery, but, whatever, time will tell...

That would be FANTASTIC. The A380 with some kind of classic livery, in 3 letters: wow.

The wings on the kangaroo : wow again.

The image on the fuselage is the same animal on the tail. I think it's awesome.

True. This is the first pic of a 380 I thought actually looked GOOD, not just okay.

I think the cheatline and black eyeliner really deemphasize the forhead and stubiness of the 388. I imagine it would look even better on a 389.

You may have noticed that Qatar Aw. is an Arabian airline, and as such would not use a Persian symbol.
The company logo represents the Arabian Oryx, an endangered species in Qatar.

That is tha CEO QR want you to see. In reality he's not quite that charming... trust me. I know a number of ex-QR employees.

As for the new livery it's not bad. I like the fact that Qatar is more visible on the side, I'm surprised this did not happen earlier as on of the main reasons for QR' existence is to fly the Qatar flag around the world. I did however prefer the old tail.

WOW Qantas! If the CEO or someone in the marketing department is reading this thread hopefully they'll consider painting an A380 in that super cool retro (still looking modern to me) livery with the orange windowline!

I agree Quantas classic livery makes the A380 look wonderful. Unfortunately in the current Quantas livery it looks like a cruise ship with all that white space showing the two rows of windows.

Sorry to see that LOT scheme by liladesign totally destroy their simple yet classic, unique and still contemporary looking scheme.

Likewise with TAAG Angola, thing looks like an Avianca bird with a negative film or some kinda ovesized sticker. Their sleek and elegant Ram on the tail is reduced to a cartoonish caricature. In my opinion the current TAAG livery is one of the best in the world no need for crappy cartoonish redesign.

Sad enough to see what Egyptair, TAP and a few others have done to their brands.

That Quantas A380 would look fabulous, in the same league as the Singapore colors!

By the way, the updated version of the Qatar livery at least looks more interesting. That mostly grey body did nothing to turn heads. The only problem is that the Oryx on the tail now looks odd when viewed in a 3/4 perspective since the snout appears 'bent' due to the curvature on the fuselage. You can't really tell what "that thing" is now unless u see it from the side.

Still, more purple area means the livery got more interesting even though I think oversized tail logos are a horrible design trend. Can't wait until it goes away!

I have a question... does making the exterior of an aircraft look stunning make people fly that airline?

I agree that some of the concepts on the website are amazing, but somehow I get the feeling that even if they're implemented, they may not last for long. Personally, I like the current TAAG scheme - simple, yet eye-catching. The new one is weird.
You can either work for a living, or you can fly airplanes. I'd rather fly!

I'm putting my vote in for yes, much like packaging for foods makes people prefer one food over another.

In terms of the QF retro product seen above, for some it would be a case of 'the same classy airline with a new classy aircraft.'

In fact, in terms of QF, I believe that once N707JT was introduced to the public, more people started flying QF. I don't have the stats, but I remember reading somewhere that there was a significant jump in passengers. If anyone can give me any help here, or provide better evidence, please go ahead  Smile

I like the new qatar scheme... It's look more modern in my opinion...
I also like the TAAG new livery.. I think it would be one of the best looking airplanes ever... It's very modern and eye-catching. I don't fit with the "older-is-better" attitude, you've to see the aircraft in the reality and then judge, However you can have some aircraft with retro liveries which are really stunning sometimes. I talk about LH retro A321 and new american retro schemes.
I like the retro QF livery as well, I don't like the retro KLM livery instead... but again it's a matter of taste... Always wait see and spot, then judge... Different liveries even if you don't like it helps spotters to never get bored...
