The Best Airline Logo!

Sat Aug 02, 2008 8:16 pm

The Logo's I'm talking about are the symbols you can see on the airplane itself.
Over the years,the logo of an aviation company became more and more symbolizing her attitude and type.
If airline like British Airways is putting children paint on it's planes
it says something about its attitude.
There are a lots of different kind of LOGOs.
Which one is your favourite?
You can choose any airline...
Flag carrier or secondary one!

If you post and answer-pls add picture of the logo.

Lufthansa.

The greatest logo in the skies IMHO. Been around for many, many years and virtually unchanged. It represents quality, reliability and the best of Germany in a simple and effective way. Not too mention that it looks fantastic on any aircraft.

One of the most ingenious corporate logos was the Northwest logo with the slash through
the W making it look like an N with a compass point to the NW...an absolute

Wow! I never noticed that before. I always just saw the N and the compass point. I never realized there was a W in there until you pointed it out.

As for my favorite logos, I've always liked the ones that represent the country the airline is based in, like the Qantas kangaroo and the Air Canada maple leaf.

Well, lets just march him out back and shoot him.
He used the examples referred to. That is ....the logo of the mid 90's. Thats the one where
the W is sliced. It points to the NORTHWEST no matter which side of the airplane the logo is on.
The current logo, the photo you show, makes no sense because the compass points to two directions..per side of aircraft, that is. NW should of left the logo alone when changing the paint scheme.
