Lovely, in my opinion the MD-83 beats the 757 and the 767. Lovely MD.

I like the 767 much better. The blue just doesn´t fit the red i don´t know...plus it looks more like graffitti than the sky they are trying to depict...it´s not bad but it´s not pleasing either, meybe it looks better in person.

It´s still better than the 757 that landed on a pile of s**t, though.

I just flew on it on tuesday BOG-MDE. Even took a pic with my cell phone, but it came out pretty crappy. I'm glad I had the plpeasure to fly on it fresh from the paint shop.

I respect everyone's opinion, but in my opinion it does not look nice at all. I looks cheap.

Hi!

This an opinion of a foreigner that respects and enjoyed a lot visiting Colombia and flying with Avianca. I think the concept of "Juan Valdez" is a very good one and it's a nice approach to show people outside the good things of Colombia ( I would like to see one day, maybe, an AV plane with lot's of fruit designed there...you guys have such a great variety and delicious fruit that it's hard to mention by words....). Regarding the colours in this MD83, I think the blue probably is not the best color indeed, I would go for the color of Juan Valdez coffee, maybe a nice shade of brown would work better. But there's one thing people cannot take from me...it's the taste, flavour and quality of Juan Valdez coffee...that's absolutely fantastic!!!
Regards
