Favourite Airline Livery?

Sat Oct 18, 2008 11:55 am

Hi A.Netters,

I was just thinking about my favourite airline liveries and would like to know other peoples favourite. Just name the airline and post a picture!

My all time favourite is the new Delta livery:

Any livery of the old Western Airlines. The early 90s DL widget is a close second. The new DL scheme is growing on me. The early 90s UA was pretty good.
Bring back Western Airlines!

you guys are kidding, right? nothing catches the eye better than the S7 livery! followed by the GF and BD ones - all three created by the geniuses at the SFO based Landor design

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 695 File size: 177kb

Big version: Width: 640 Height: 439 File size: 109kb
Big version: Width: 640 Height: 446 File size: 98kb




And on a side note, I really have to mention AC livery as well. the very light blue-turquoise fuselage is just beautiful

Dont know if anyone can remember 'Clarksons' (Courtline travel i think) from the 70's, but their aircraft were leaders in bright colours for the time.

Ive also always been a fan of the now lost but not forgotton 'Britannia Airways' and their liveries and, i guess most of my favs are from the 70's and 80's.

My all time favorite is the final ATA livery. the blue and gold just worked so well and I always smiled seeing them go over my house all the time.

the best looking livery ever on the most beautiful plane ever. And they compliment each-other with the red accentuating the upper deck.
