Why Don't You Like The "new" EL-AL Colourscheme?

Thu Mar 08, 2001 7:28 pm

Some of you do not like the latest livery of EL-AL. You probably already know that I hate white fuselages with just a coloured tailfin. But I think the new EL-AL livery is a very attractive, distinguishing and trendsetting colourscheme. Okay, as a designer I would have coloured the plane a bit more, but after all they kept the plane together by setting through the fuselage lines to the tailfin. I do not know why other people prefer the old scheme. To me it was too heavy painted, the design was outdated and it had some relations with ANA and KLM, although KLM is quite well balanced.

Tell me why you dislike the new colourscheme of EL-AL.

Something contrary to that: I do LIKE the new colour scheme of El Al.

Too heavy painted and outdated?! El-Al's old color scheme was so fine and elegant! The planes, even old, looked great and impressive in that livery. The shade of blue was more beautiful and refined than the ones of KLM or ANA.
Now, it's so cold and poor. Not aesthetic for a penny!

The new one looks pale from a distance and then
the all white fuselage makes it look naked.
Looks like it's been painted by some
tired youngster with only one crayon left.
Kindest regards,

Advancedkid, you are 100% correct, I share your opinion.
During 3 decades El-Al had a wonderful livery; what a stupid change!

I like the new one. The old one was nice but the new one is still better than most other airlines.

It's too boring. I'm sick of the ribbon/streamer/wave look.

The 70's scheme was very bold and the graphics very interesting.

I dont dislike it, but it could have been much nicer, perhaps by giving the jewish star a more intereresting place on the plane.

and could there be "a more interesting place on the plane" than on the top of the tail as it had been during the last 40 years?! (El-Al's tails decoration was introduced with the first 707 in 1961)

OK the new livery is not that bad , but the old one was so unique taht you would just think they were going to improve not go for the white look . I consider the new c/s a bit plain and not very creative .

On the contrary, I think the new EL AL livery is one of the most attractive right now!!!!!!

Why is the Star of David in 'italics' on the tail?
It looks like an afterthought.

The Star of David is in italics because this sad livery is supposed to express fluidity, movement, dynamism...but the whole result looks like an "afterthought". Aah the splendid old one!
