What Prompts Livery Updates?

Tue Feb 06, 2007 8:37 am

Rather than speculate as to the next livery update, I decided to think about the factors that have prompted changes in the past:

The Obvious:

Refresh - Air India
Merger - USAirways
Big new fleet coming online - AirTran
Well thought through marketing initiative - British Airways

The Not So Obvious:

Well thought through martketing retreat - British Airways
An excuse to ignore the numbers - Alitalia
Owning shares in major paint manufacturers - Delta
What do you mean you can't make composite shiny? - American
We'll make Chaney look open and forthcoming - Air New Zealand
Everyone loves toothpaste, right? - Air Canada
Livery? Is that the thing under the dirt? - Air France


Am I missing anything?
