Possibly One Of The Worst Liveries To Date?

Wed Apr 18, 2012 9:36 pm

Seeing as the original thread has disappeared, here is a new one.

Discussing Bingo Airways: http://www.bingoairways.com/
A new polish start up with questionable taste for their logo.

They are actually using Comic Sans for their tail logo, yup, you heard right, Comic Sans.
The Font used for children's books!

I like the nose and smile, reminds me of PSA.
I think the engine cowlings are a little gawdy at first, but will allow one to identify the aircraft and airline from pretty far off!
The titles and tail are all that need work, IMHO.

Hmmm, this looks familiar!   Thanks for resurrecting this story. It's worthy of it!

Well if the airline is targeting kindergarteners then I guess this livery is the right way to go.

Seriously though did they not consult some people with experience in design before choosing Comic Sans? The nose I can forgive but the font choice, no no no.

Still I guess its better than seeing another TUI branded charter airline.

The smile and the nose made me laugh, so I guess that is a good thing.

Not really the worst I've ever seen... at least it's not boring.

I like the livery. It makes me smile. I think it will prove popular with the flying public. -ir

Way better than Finnair's current livery, don't you think?

I still think TK has the most stupid livery among major airlines... 0% of creativity.

I do not like the livery nor the name, but the reality is that being a charter airline they will operate for big tour agencies. Most people do not care what the name or the livery is when they go on vacations. They just want to get from point A to B and have fun.

Quoting IslandRob (Reply 5):

I agree with you. It's a good livery for a charter company targeting families. Probably not the right livery for a company targeting business people.

I quite like the TUI branded airlines. No idea just think they are really nice, especially on a 757!

Worst livery in my opinion has to be the current Finnair! No imagination went into that whatsoever.

I'm not a fan of the Finnair livery either. It's a budget livery. They probably paid a pretty penny for it though.

I like it! Saw it in GDN the other day. Doesn't make up for the demise of the BD livery though
