Not in any particular order

1) KLM
2) Qantas
3) South African

also

Air New Zealand
Aer Lingus
Lufthansa
Ethiad
British

(I seem to like it simple, stupid...)

I dislike complex/busy liveries that are difficult to discern from any distance. I also dislike liveries that don't match, such as painting the engines a bright color that is not reflected anywhere else on the frame.

I find United's new scheme somewhat cartoony and not as classy as the previous one. I find NWs new livery a bit severe - all that grey.

I miss JALs old Proud Bird. That was always a favorite.

My fav with always be.... Wailaia Dreaming (sp?)
I come in peace
