I don't like the first one - too busy, the shade of green is horrid, and I detest names with "my" or "your" in them.

From what I can see, the second one is kind of snazzy - the "A" on the tail needs to be changed (it just looks "old" to me), and I can't read the words so I can't comment on them.

I'm not sure if by "worst", you mean plain, or just fugly, but here's a couple of "nauseating" candidates off the top of my head - I'll try to think of more later:

"No, no, this shade of green is a little more vomit-inducing, let's go with it!"

"Yep, blue would look great with red and orange! Oh, no, not a tasteful sky-blue, either...we need something more garish." (I had never thought the words "blue" and "garish" could ever appear in the same sentence, but Southwest proved me wrong.)

I have nothign against bright schemes! I think WN's new blue is better than post-curry offerings brown. Siberia is green but at least it's bright and fun! Schemes should be slated for being dull rather than bright, altho that myair.com one is truely awful.

Schemes I think that suck are:

Mexicana

Easyjet

Ryanair

Aviacsa

Lufthansa (ok, but boring)

Air France
A340-300 - slow, but awesome!

I think it's classy - very plain and stylish - less can be more...

Quoting B742 (Reply 7):
Air Canada NC - Hate the green!

Same as LH - it's really nice. I like it a lot...

Isn't it funny how tastes vary? Obviously some people thought myair.com is great, too - else they wouldn't have chosen it...

Yes, that's true, but less is the key word, LH gives you almost nothing! They even paint the wings white!

Quoting Ryan h (Reply 11):

Give me the Siberia scheme over AF, AC, & LH anyday. I guess I prefer color, even bad color, over a white / plain fuselage.

That said, many people hate the new Thai colors and I think that is classy.

Damn straight, HorizonGirl!

I also agree with Roots, Air India's C/S has got to go! Especially when the airline's A/C adopt more AF-like exteriors... ie: dirt.

A vast majority of Russian and CIS airlines have really crappy liveries, and though they are seldom seen in the rest of Europe, I really hope they stop polluting the views of people living in their respective countries... (I like Sibir's new C/S though...)  box

The airline itself is fine, but it's just such a boring paintjob. I don't mind the colors, but just the writing and tail design is just, unappealing to me.

RootsAir - How can you possibly dislike the SWISS colors?! Of course, I do have a bias, but still. I think the tail is amizing and in the right light looks so crisp and perfect. Granted the fuselage has a lot of white, but I love the titles with the multi-lingual name, and the airline logo and name on the engine. And the winglets look great too. Just my two cents. It also looks better on the A330. Check out this picture...

I have to say, I like the new S7 livery. Refreshing, funky, and very cool in my opinion. Have to disagree with you ExFATboy, sorry.

Relating to the topic at hand, I think the worst livery has got to be the new TAP colors...

I'm sorry...its very boring and unimaginative. Tyler Brul� was asked to design this livery. I'm sorry but even a 3 year old could have done something nicer. I mean its all eurowhite...its not unique. One thing i likie bout KLM or even EZY or Helvetic is that you can recognise them from far in the air thanks to their characteristic colors. Swiss is plain white and plain boring. I don't know why Swiss airlines have to have a flag tail. That's why I loved the livery Crossair used to have before the merger. Swiss should have gotten that livery!

This is really a matter of taste. It seems you like these liveries with many colors which are very kitschy and look terribly cheap (Helvetic has really a awful color). I prefer the clean, classic and elegant liveries which make the planes much more graceful and don't make them look like toys. BTW Swiss airlines don't have to have the Swiss flag on the tail (many don't have it, e.g. Helvetic or Edelweiss) but it looks simply great and unique and is very traditional.
