Opinions On The New Finnair Colors

Sat Dec 18, 2010 3:16 pm

Had a thread on this a while back. My take: Both the people that designed it and the people that gave the go ahead should be shot over this one. When I first saw it, I thought Adria got a 340.

Personally, I liked the brighter blue from the old livery. It made the airplane stand out, look newer, and shine more. I feel like the dark blue is a little too traditional and old school. Of course, maybe that's what they were going for.

As Braniff747SP said, I also thought the livery looks like Adria's one. IMHO is a total downgrade from the past one that had a blue that made it stand out from the rest.

A total shame...

I admit the first time I saw the new livery in illustration my first reaction was that it sucked and looked disgusting. However looking at the photo, I'll have to say that it looks fabulous!

It looks like an "interim livery" to me. Something an airline would put on an aircraft when leased from somewhere else.

Exactly what I thought !

And look at that one, their most recent brand new A333:

Why hasn't it that new livery ?

Other question:

Will they take more second hand A343s in the future ? I thought they would only stick to the A330 in the future.


Kiitos.

First I thought it was a Ryanair plane in white with to large letters. Absolutely horrible livery. Stop this insanity before it's too late.

Edited to correct spelling.

Had a thread on this a while back.

It was this one: New Finnair Livery (by clydenairways Nov 24 2010 in Civil Aviation)

Reading it should ease any tensions you may have about this livery.

Perhaps the introduction of the new livery was delayed, in the thread I linked to someone mentioned that the "real" new livery would be introduced on an A330 in early December.

It's not such a bad livery in my opinion. Looks kinda classy.
Although, it is rather boring, and i do prefer the old one. But i don't think the new one look as bad as some people seem to think.

I'm having my very own "D'Oh!" moment, saw this thread whilst searching for the other, but didn't think to check it: Finished With Finnair? Is It Out Of Control? (by Jana Dec 2 2010 in Civil Aviation)

I felt the same way too! I think it actually fits the A340 well and I like the logos on the engines. Those colors remind me of Finland, but I've never been there so what do I know.

I have to say I quite like it (especially the 'f' logo on the engines). I think it has a retro feel which is nice!
