Mon May 24, 2004 8:25 am

What is up with design team on drugs that came up with this interior for Virgin Blue?

come on.....quit taking pictures of the interiors of mothballed aeroflot tu-134's or 1962 greyhound busses and trying to pass them off as new jetliners.

For a 737NG, that is pretty bad. I'm suprised Branson would stand for such a thing!

I don't get it.... Virgin Blue call themselves Virgin Blue because their aircraft are bright red, and the Australian colloquial expression for a red-headed person is a "Bluey" (source - Airliner World, a couple of years ago.) So they paint their aircraft red and blue... add a bit of white for good measure... and now a revolting snot-green interior?

Still, if they're comfortable and the fare's cheap, I'd take one...

They acquired a second hand plane and didn't bother to change the seats:

Well, excuse me. Snot green is one of my favorite colors. It is the blue carpet that is out of place.

Bluey, yeah I've heard that before. But come on. What kind of first impression is that for customers? "Welcome aboard Virgin Blue. Have a seat on our snot green seats and enjoy your fligh!" Come on!

Air France is great in every aspect, but I think those tri colored headresters are ugly...

I have flown on this aircraft a couple of times and the seats are quite comfortable. Who cares what they look like? As long as VB get me there safely.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

While I think the pictured interior is ugly, it's nothing compared to Biman Bangladesh's interiors.

The colour of those seats remind me of turtles or lizards....LOL
I guess they are ok but they look like someone stole those seats out of Forbes Capitalist Tool's 727....Tee-hee...

Ive flown that plane once from Perth to Sydney and i can say that this LEASED aircraft from an Italian carrier (cant remember which one) is quite uncomfortable. To original virgin Blue seats are far more comfortable. These seats are really hard, i dont know why Virgin doesnt change the seats and put it on par, comfort wise with its remaining fleet.

Oh, ich, that's horrible. It looks like a crate of whisky bottles shaped into seats.

Air France- I hate those headrests. They look like dishcloths.

As for the Biman one, it's garish, but at least it's tolerable.

I think that those headrest sheets should be back in US major airline cabins.

I know I am going to start a firestorm on this one but Eastern Airlines had the ugly of the ugly interiors. Choclate Brown Door covers, Nylon Seats that were brown and orange pattern from hell,and always smelled of glowtard because they had to be treated to stay flame resistant, I don't know about the rest of you but choclate brown is a very ugly color for the inside of an airplane.
