I think the 757 looks the best in AA colors.I like the MD11's and 767's in Delta's old colors. Twa's 767 look good also.

I agree with Cba on these...

717 would indeed be TWA...
747 would be Virgin Atlantic
777 would be Continental

The others...

707 Royal Jordanian

MD-11 KLM or Finnair (new livery)

And there are always more...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

RE: South African Tailfin The Best

Tue Feb 27, 2001 5:51 pm

The tailfin design of South African is the best ever: colorful, speedy and the best perception of the country of origin. The fuselage of SA is very poor, so South African has to my opinion not the best all over livery. Nice present liveries (in matter of design and style): SAS, US•Airways, , Northwest, Continental. US carriers has been always favorite to me because they are taking care their corporate image as the best of the world.

The JAS -MD-90's are just thrilling and so are Impulse Airlines's B717's.
