Other Airlines In Retro C/s

Sat Apr 02, 2005 5:48 am

What other airliners would you all like to see in retro and which planes should they use ?

I'd go for :
KL and one of the future A330'
MP and the new 744SF

Any thoughts ?

Bring back the CO meatball scheme, preferably the red, on their 757/767/777 types.

I'd love to see a NW A330 in the old Northwest Orient scheme. As far as BA is concerned, how about one of their T7's in the old BOAC colours and one of their A319's in the old BEA colours?

A UAL 757 in the original Friendship livery. They've got an 80th birthday coming up soon...it'd be nice if they give this to their employees. You'd be amazed at the number of employees who want to see a retrojet....at least it would bring some memories of the days before Wolf, ESOP, Summer of 2000, you know, all that crap that's landed them where they are now.

Come on UA, do it for those who are with you all the way! Big grin

Quoting ERJ145LR (Reply 8):

I'm not sure that could happen...you are referring to Frontier I, right?

Northwest ought to paint some DC-9's in the schemes of their predecessors:

Republic
Hughes Airwest
Southern
North Central

USAirways could do it too, but they'd need to use different aircraft then their aquired airlines. A PSA A319 would look sweet!

Maybe DL or Song paint one of their 757s in the old NE Yellowbird scheme?
