I always liked LR
's 1980s colours which they used on the BAC One-Elevens, 727s and even on their DC-8F. They're much more pleasant to the eyes than TA
's standard Eurowhite.
Plus, those old 80's colours would have looked excellent on the 757 (had they taken delivery of them) or a widebody.

I don't know what the hell they were thinking when they replaced those colours with the horrible Eurowhite scheme that was introduced with their first batch of A320s in 1989.
Only the tail made up a bit for it.
