Best And Worst Livery Changes

Fri Mar 17, 2006 11:47 pm

Just wondering who shares my feelings on recent livery changes, I'm sorry if there have been lots of similar posts....


I think some of the best changes are
1. United - the old livery was good but the new one looks seriously good.
2. Northwest
3. Transavia
4. Thai

The worst
1. US Airways - why go from that sharp dark, grey and red scheme to the cheap looking new livery??
2. Austrian - Very nice to very ugly.


These are just my opinions, what does everyone else think....

Quoting EIN145 (Thread starter):
The worst

I hate to but have to add:

  • JAL - where did the crane go? From the distance it may look elegant, but when you look closely... Terrible.
  • ANA - did you know they've made a minor change? The overall design didn't change a bit, but they have removed Japanese titles and put a logo instead. I hate them for having done such a tacky and stupid move, I wish they had more respect to their identity.
  • Asiana - none yet painted, but will suck strongly, I tell you
  • US Airways


Regarding best changes:

  • KLM - that subtle change added so much!
  • Northwest


Finally, I don't like new United and Thai designs, but they are not "the worst", so I didn't explicitly mention them.

DISASTROUS: British Airways ill fated "Ethnic Liveries", between 1997 - 2002 proved to be an expensive error of judgement for the airline.

The best livery change made Aeroflot, the current livery is the best of all!

I am not a fan of having the .com on planes. I know this will be hard to believe but I like the America West design. It is funky and seems to fit its desert hubs. I also do not like the all white planes with just the airline name.

DEFINITELY!
They had an extremely lame ugly dull livery and their new one is just amazing...

P.S Its a British design group that made the livery
