Royal Jordanian livery compliments just about every aircraft. But this.......

You hafta admit though, the -400 looks a bit better than the -200.  Big thumbs up

It looks very 'royal' and ' middle-eastern'

Sure looks nice! When I saw RJ for the first time on the Airbus at Frankfurt, I was blown away, it looked so nice! When I was at JFK a few years later, I saw it again! That livery is so nice! It looks damn good on a 747!!

wow.
As was said, everytime I see that livery, I stare...classy.

I have the same feeling for the Landor tail on BA. Subtel class.
there is economy class, business class, first class...then Concorde..pure class

No. I liked BA's old livery on the 747 better.  Sad, why didn't they keep it, looked so royal and colorful!!! (new one is good too, but the old one, oooohhh was it a beauty). But this Royal Jordanian 747 is still very strikingly beautiful nevertheless, indeed.

I do think European Air Charter have done a splendid job with their Ex BA B747-200 fleet. They're quite a sight at EGHH.
