While both stand out in their own ways, I think that the new livery is brighter, more visible and generally more fresh-looking than the old one. However, the old livery seems, to my eyes, to be less confusing, colour-wise, than the new one, and easier on your eyes. I like both. If I had to choose one, I would probably choose the new one, primarily because it does look more modern and striking.

Personally, I think that they are both bloody awful.

(My, that WAS constructive. Sorry Pe@rson)

I agree with BananaBoY, they both look rubish!

I prefer the second, and while it is not great, I find it to be somewhat appealing. The first one I do not like at all.

Thanks,

The blue one's a lot better, the first one reminds me of mustard and ketchup.

I don't really like either, but if I had to choose, blue blue blue!

I still prefer the desert colors to canyon blue, but the new one has grown on me. As someone that often spots planes on approach, I also prefer the registration lower on the fuselage. The problem with both is the fade factor - as the time from painting increases, the colors fade quite noticeably, and do not look as sharp.

If I had to pick, it'd definitely be the Canyon Blue. The first one just gets old from the first second you see it.

They are newer and older liverys?! I didn't know that. I thought WN was just having fun and decided to paint some of their planes different colors! lol

Anyways-

While I think they're both pretty ugly.. I like the second one more. It seems more alive and vibrant the the first one.

Although I don't really like either one too too much, I like the blue one better. It's more vibrant than the all-brown livery- which get's very old after a while.
