Airline With The Best Liveries

Sun Jul 19, 2009 3:03 am

I dont know if this is mentioned before, but if so, my apologies....


So, what are your favorite liveries out there? My personal top 10 would be:

BEST

1. Qantas - I love the Kangaroo!
2. Emirates - Professional and elegant
3. JetBlue - Blue is my favorite color
4. British Airways - Nice, neat and professional.
5. Singapore Airlines - classy and sophisticated.
6. US Airways - neat and professional.
7. KLM - again, i like blue
8. Korean Air - same as number 3 and 7
9. Etihad - same as number 5
10. Malaysia Airlines - looks good on jumbos.

WORST

1. Kuwait Airways - old stlye and dirty.
2. Egyptair - plain and bland
3. Olympic Airlines - they could do better.. (i still dont like the new one)
4. Iberia - old livery, they seriously need a new one
5. Alitalia - they could do better
6. Air France - the font on their name is ugly.
7. Air Canada - the color looks like a bathroom
8. China Airlines - okay but they could do better.
9. Royal Jordanian - needs a new one
10. LOT Polish - same as 4

These are my opinions..... whats yours?

Yeah! Even they had renewed their livery, still seems to be so 80's-ish!

My opinion its Air New Zealand, great colour and a very unique logo.

I find the KL and VN liveries appealing. I can't stand Southwest's orange, red, and purple livery.

Oops, I forgot Icelandair. I like the blue and gold colors, it's unique and very professional.  Smile

I also like Greenland Air:

Aer Lingus

Thai

Aeroflot

TAP

I think that although Iberia's is really old, it's some how classic & looks beautiful on their A346's.

Vietnam

JAL

Gulf Air

American

I think Air Canada's is really cool.
