The Best 757 Liveries

Thu Apr 17, 2008 10:54 pm

Hi, everyone. Lately I have taken a real interest in 757s (more than usual). Anyway, Ihave been wondering what you guys think are the best liveries that were ever worn on this jet. My favorites are the bare metal Eastern livery, Delta's Ron Allen and their 2007 colors. Those are my faves, what are yours?

Northwest's new livery looks AMAZING on the 757-200, especially when the sun hits it just right and reflects golden off the nose. It's really breathtaking. I work at an international airport, and I have to say that a NW 752 is one of the best looking birds out there.

Other than that, I like most of Delta's schemes on it. But not the wavy gravy. Delta's new scheme was introduced on the 757, and I think that's the aircraft to which it is best suited; the 777-2LR they just rolled out isn't as nice, because the sideways widget just accentuates that the 777 tail is a bit too skinny to look "proportional." That's my opinion, anyway.

The original UA scheme was nice.

For some reason i like most liveries on the B757! It just looks gorgeous itself and so the livery is just the last bit to make it look awesome!

But if I had to chose:

I bitterly miss the livery that should never have been changed (repetition...)

Mine would be the Avianca Retro 757.

Very cool looking!

I love the NW one, especially with the winglets, same goes for the Icelandair with winglets.

Exactly! I think the question should be: what livery doesn't look good on a 757?

The Britannia livery before they joined TUI. With blue/gold stipes and the woman/sheild/Britannia on the tail.

Loved it!

except Monarch

CO, DL, AA

not the new DL which IMO is ugly on the 75

Almost anything looks good on a 75 though
