Security reasons for sure, though large EL AL titles are hardly camouflage. Doesn´t explain why all planes of El Al Cargo have a different "livery" also
|Quoting Stylo777 (Reply 3):|
for example 4X-AXM is flying around the world with Korean Airlines "livery" (the blue without titles) since 2004
|Quoting TodaReisinger (Reply 6):|
Stylo777: yes, LY is in a dire financial situation... The management found the money to order a totally unnecessary (and ugly) "new" logo, but the airline is not able to acquire new and competitive planes, and for now the "new" logo has not been painted on airplanes. There is no other reason than economical ones behind those weird liveries. For the Cargo planes, the Shabbat issue might be playing a role, too.
|Quoting MIAMIx707 (Reply 8):|
I wish they'd never gotten rid of the previous livery
|Quoting LY777 (Reply 9):|
Yes, 2 a/c are still in the old colour: 2 757s: 4X-EBS and 4X-EBT

|Quoting TodaReisinger (Reply 4):|
For which security reason? If there were security reasons behind it...then I guess passenger airplanes would be all white...or in other non-LY liveries.... And, as can be seen on the pic posted above, the LY logo has been added on this all-white Jumbo...thus it is not "anonymous" anymore.
|Quoting WJ (Reply 11):|
it is safer and makes much more sense to keep the aircraft as indistinguishable as possible as opposed to coming in with a 300 ft flying flag that is recognizable from miles away.
