Star Alliance Livery- Best On Which Aircraft?

Wed Jul 27, 2005 8:49 am

So what's your favorite aircraft wearing the STAR colors?

IMO, nothing beats the MD-11:

Looks surprisingly good I think. And it's not just because I'm a RG fan, it just looks good.

I believe this belongs in the polls forum, although I do agree with you, the MD-11 does look rather good with the star colors (or lack thereof  Wink). The white tail looks bad, though.

I posted when it was still in civ av.  biggrin 

Anyway, I really don't like how they have started painting the tails white, just doesn't look very good. The 744, with the Star body and SQ tail is also a favorite of mine, though.

I still prefer the star alliance standard livery on other airlines.

I think the white tail is terrible , especially on the MD-11. Looks like a prototype.

I must agree with Harry , the Star Alliance scheme with the airlines tail looks brilliant. I hope SAA take the same route with their Star Alliance livery i.e keeping their tail scheme.

i dont know why i like them on those aircraft but they seem to blend into the fuselage, as opposed to being streched out on a 773 or sqyished on a CRJ....

I think it looks pretty tacky on the 747 for some reason, but IMO it looks the best on the 767 and A330/A340. Seems to be too 'big' of a livery for the 737...

Looks like rubbish on Air New Zealand's A320. However, if they changed back to 737s....?
