Hello to all, As many of you already know Southwest Airline sis introducing a new livery (

Anyway, It seems like when any airline changes their scheme a lot of people hate it??? Why is that??? I've seen it with TWA's newest colors, I saw it with USAIR becoming US Airways, We all saw it with DeltaFlot, and now SouthwestFlot.

Personally I like SWA's new look, and can wait to fly them

Looks good. Now the airlines are coming up with good color schemes! I especially like the new interior.

check out for a better pic. I like the interior. The paint job is a whole different story. Uglier than AirTran.

Southwestflot? This scheme hardly compares with Aeroflot and Delta. Just because it is different does not mean that every new livery deserves the "flot" suffix.

Look at how the red dives down before the nose... just like on Delta's new scheme. That's what I was referring to.

I must admit, the scheme looks much better on the Southwest website.

Terrible. Nasty. Now I am DEFINATELY not flying Southwest! I can't take the Mac-and-cheese interior! Even if it is leather...

Whats wrong with Deltas new colors? Don't answer that...

I was one of the very, very few who liked the original SWA colors, so I didn't think they needed to be changed any how. I do like the new colors, I don't like when airlines make huge changes to their livery, and this one looks good. The new seats look much nicer then the old ones.

The addition of Canyon Blue is neither a possitive or a negative. The orange, gold and red livery of SW is by far the ugliest in the world - Canyon Blue is just a wart on the already ugly canvass. Never the less, the SW business plan is a winner in a sea of followers. Good job, Herb - no matter how ugly your planes may be!

I would be happier with it if the cheatlines and text were white instead of gold.

Never flown WN and probably never will fly them (PHL-based, there wont be a chance of that) but I like it a lot-especially the interior.
