Sat Jun 03, 2006 1:10 am

This is what it will look like, much better than the current scheme in IMO.

I blieve their first A346 is already painted in that version of their c/s.

It's actually an Oryx which is in the goat family. IMO the new livery looks good on the A380 but not on any of the other aircraft. The other livery wasn't that old or really in need of change IMO.

IMHO the QATAR titles are far too big- looks kinda cheap. Other than that the livery amendments to the rest of the body are great!! Overall- Thumbs Up (Y)

Two thumbs up! I think the bold letter and the oryx attracts attention, which makes it look positive.

Correct she is round at TLS still, I will try and get a pic up of her!

All new aircraft for QR will now feature the new livery!

As FRAspotter said, it's an Oryx. The Oryx is the national animal and icon of Qatar!

I agree, I think it would of looked better with the orginal titles of "Qatar Airways"

Billboard Logo's smack of low cost. And Qatar certainly isn't that having had the pleasure to fly them 4 times.

They should keep the current size titling, or if they do want to enlarge it, at least do so only a bit - not on such a massive scale.

I like the new larger Oryx on the tail though - that should stay!!

Well, from the airline's point of view, it is better to make the livery change now, while the fleet is still small, rather than wait for all the 787/A350s and 777s and A340s to arrive.

It looks fine, especially the tail. I'm not sure about titles though.

I don't mind the big titles that much, but what you don't see so well in that "photo", but is very clear in the A340-600 photo, is that the grey fuselage ends just under the QATAR titles; I think that grey all the way would have been nicer.

Personally, I think Qatars current livery looks better than the one on that A380. It looks like they rushed the design.

Flew Qatar two weeks ago and their in flight magazine showed computer images of the to be delivered A340-600 in the new livery. I thought it looked quite nice on the long fuselage of the -600, even though I have to agree that the current livery isn't bad either. Anyway, I would rank Qatar Airways among the very best (if not *the* best) airlines I've ever flown so far.

Totally disagree - the name is not that long, so big letters are great. I don't like the SQ paint scheme for the 380, because big letters and long name doesn't work.
New QF livery looks great on the 380

Wish you luck  crossfingers 
BTW, do you plan to move there or they are looking for local cabin crew. I also heard that Qatar wants to fly to Belgrade. Do you have any news on that?

Thanx Aleksandar  Smile

No, they have international cabin crew and they are voted the best cabin crew in The Middle East In 2003, 2004 And 2005 By Skytrax, and also 5 star airline comapred to 4 star Emirates (as on SKYTRAX)
