What Is Your Favorite Airline Symbol?

Thu Jun 21, 2001 11:32 pm

I really like the Northwest compas pointing to the northwest. I also like the Finnair flying F that looks like a DC9. Lufthansa's bird looks very cool.
What are some other favorites?

I like SIA's logo as well as US Airways' flag. US Airways' symbol is simple but very nice I think.

My number one is shared by two airlines... They are the maple leaf of Air Canada and the Lufthansa crane. Btw: The Lufthansa one is the oldest airline symbol around! Lufthansa already used it in 1926 when they first started service as Deutsche Luft-Hansa.

Definately Continental Airlines. Secondly would be Northwest - I think it's so cool how the lettering could be an 'N' or a 'W'.

Stay cool,
Matthew

Delta's Widget is one of the most recognized airline logos in the world. And it is by far my favorite.

Definitely this beautiful star. Has been with LanChile for almost 70 years, and it is the symbol of my country.Also the red stripe means the narrow and long shape of Chile, seen from the space. It's name is "La Estrella del Sur del Mundo"--->"The Star from the south of the world"(obviously it sounds much better in spanish)

I like all of them, I think that most of them are just works of genius.

But most of all, I like:

JAL - I love that crane!

Qantas - The Flying Kangaroo is really cool.

Air Canada - The leaf says so much.

Eva Air - The compass, with the green and orange.

Cathay Pacific - The 'swoosh' is so elegant.

bmi - All in lower case... but will sadly date very quickly.

British Airways - The SpeedMarque.

Northwest - I like the way that the Arrow pointing to the North-West of the compass can also make the apparent 'N' into a 'W'... Very clever!

Aer Lingus - The Shamrock is clever, with all those shades of green.
