Who Will Have The Best 787 Livery?

Wed Mar 26, 2008 1:12 am

Based off earlier threads involving the A380, A320, B737, B747, B777: Who do you all think will have the best livery for the 787?

In fact, while we're on the topic, why not also mention some of those A350XWB liveries coming as well?

Some of my picks:
Big version: Width: 450 Height: 300 File size: 11kb
Big version: Width: 450 Height: 360 File size: 50kb
Big version: Width: 450 Height: 300 File size: 38kb
Big version: Width: 450 Height: 340 File size: 38kb

My bias answer will be AC...
I think it would look even better in their 80's or 90's livery

The Jetstar, Air Canada and BA liveries look fantastic on the 787, but I imagine all liveries will look great on a 787 in flight. I do like the white engines on the BA livery however I guess BA will retain the blue engines in reality?

IMO continental's lame livery doesn't even belong in the top 50. My choices would be.

1) Aeromexico
2) Aeroflot
3) Northwest
4) Virgin Atlantic
5) Icelandair
6) JAL
7) British Airways
8) Qantas
9) Thai Airways
10) Air Canada

thats my top 10 anyway.

And if leasing companies actually flew their aircraft in the livery.. Pegasus by far.

I'm not really a fan of Continental's livery, but from the pics you posted, I like Continental's the best. The BA one looks like a Fokker.

Why not start a separate thread?

I love the BA too and I think the engines will actually stay white because of the anti-drag paint Boeing uses.

I think Gulf Air's livery will look nice on the 787.

The CO livery is by Far the best for a US carrier she's gonna look lovely on a 787. I saw there 737-900ER taxing out the other day it looked so Shiny and sleek on her long fuseluge!!!
