From The Elderly... KL,QF,AV,MX Who's The Hippie?

Sat Apr 18, 2009 12:59 pm

KLM, Qantas and Avianca are so conservative, what do you think of "ageing Mexicana"'s new look?
My other plane is an A380.

I would disagree with the terminology you use. Today while some liveries (Chinese carriers for example) have outdated liveries, most airlines' liveries would be considered Traditional, Modern or Ultra modern. MX would be "ultra modern" whereas DL and AV would be modern and you correctly said QF and KL would be traditional.

My 2cents

Not your 2 cents but your good taste, I agree. I think Mexicana went too far, I just want to get a feeling of what non-Mexicans think of Mexicana's daring look, one of which I think is daring but not modern or outstanding (unless it is by its uniqueness, but not a trend-setter at all). Thanks.

I don´t like MX´s look at all, even though i respect them as an airline. I think they screwed up the classic eagle and that the livery looks horrible on the aircraft, especially the A330. Only the 717s look semi-well in it. And the name on top of the wing leads to confusion, as many don´t read it wirtten on the aircraft.

I personally dislike Mexicana's new livery, but to put it nicely, it's 'creative' and 'different.' But I don't really like the colors, or at least the way they are arranged. It's something I would expect to see in one of those ultra-modern condo lofts. But that's just my opinion.
