Best And Worst Airline Logo Changes

Sat Feb 23, 2008 1:20 am

Quite a few airlines have changed their image in recent times, some are better than others.

Aer Lingus website: I like the new website logo, it's more in line with the overall Aer Lingus Irishness.
Old: New:

CityJet: CityJet meets Air France = boring!

Old: New:

Delta: Wasnt sure about this change but I've started to like it.

Old: New:

Qantas: Don't like it at all, I know they had to change the Kangaroo because of the A380 livery but the rest was fine!

Old: New:

Anymore good and bad airline brand changes?

I must say that along with a lot of people, I hated the new Delta colors, but now I must say I really, really like them. Has anyone seen how good their 767's look? What about that new T7 they just acquired?

One I hate, Iberia. Those colors to be honest look like they were once vibrant and bright (around the 70's) but after 30+ years of sun exposure have faded. Think of a living room set that is close to a huge window and after several years of exposure to the midday sun, you get the point. The worst is on their A340's  crazy

Delta  bigthumbsup  (although I think the word Delta should be bolder)
US Airways  bigthumbsup   bigthumbsup   bigthumbsup  Just looks great!
United  bored  Besides it will probably be another twenty years before they are done, repainting all the planes.
World  boggled  Copycat - looks like UPS with just another color
Air Canada  bouncy   bouncy  Looks good and different

That's my  shhh  opinion.

Changes I like:

US Airways-looks more cleaner and I love the "swoosh" theme  Smile
and I've always loved US Big grin

Air Canada- Great for the modern age

Changes I dislike:

Delta-looks so straight and kinda lifeless

QANTAS- I liked the old font better

Airlines I think need changing:

American-They've been using that scheme for a long time

Continental- it's plain for me

Breath of Fresh Air:
United from OOC (orange stripes) to NOC (gray and blue belly)
US Airways from gloom-n-doom to HP-like
Northwest from Orient to Bowling Shoe
Delta from Intermediate to Deltaflot to now
Midwest from their first livery to the OC to now
Continental from meatball to now
Air Canada from cheatline to old Maple Leaf to now
TAM from blue tail to red
Varig from that old crap to the compass rose to now

Like it, but why change?:
Asiana
United from NOC to now
TAM from original red tail to current yellow/green trim on the front edge of tail

Don't like it, but I'll live
TAM's new livery
All those TUI airlines changing their liveries to a universal TUI livery

HECK NO!:
Northwest from Bowling Shoe to Silver Bullet (although I'll admit some aircraft they have now would look a bit stupid with bowling shoe)
Air Berlin's nonsense
Corsair from old to TUI
I convert Jet A and 100LL into noise.

Virgin Atlantic! Bring back the purple and more red. They could have splashed that red paint from half way down the fuselage to the tail. make it more sexy and seductive. establish the paint job on Birthday girl as its livery. Instead we are ledt with a design that is more clinical then the priory clinic
"Oh the glamour"

Agreed. I was very disappointed when the new livery came out, I was pleased that they got rid of the silver fuselage but to loose so much red and purple ruined it for me.
