I drew these up when I heard about the Iraqi 737-800 order. (Is that still on the books?)

The catch is that a new Boeing comes with a THREE COLOR paint job; both of the paint schemes you've come up with have more than three colors. So, they'd have to pay extra, which most carriers aren't willing to do
|Quoting aviatorcraig (Reply 16):|
Are you kidding?? The cost of the paint job is minuscule compared to the cost of a new airliner. Have it delivered in white and get it painted locally if Boeing will only let you have three colours!

Another color I really miss, yellow. BI is unique, unfortunately it doesn't have extensive network nor larger aircraft to enhance the livery.
|Quoting JoeyTaffy93 (Reply 24):|
I must say I am glad they've gone back to this livery. I've always been a fan of it. I'm looking to see a picture of the full aircraft in the livery, and hopefully the 737-700's at some point soon too.

+1 Its an iconic lovely livery . I remember seeing their B747s in LHR as a kid and always loved it . Kudos to them for taking a brave decision and not going with the ''everything old is bad'' attitude. So many airlines have ruined their brand with crap designs.

I have seen the old livery in person on 747 and An-24 the green was too dark and surprisingly did not look as good as it appears in some photos, on the CRJ they have lighthened the colour and have a full white belly and engines which makes it more appealing, its the same as on one 737-200, not sure if the CRJ have the wavy top, the 737 does not.
