Same here. I prefere the old colors better. Reminds me of a mix between Delta's old livery and American's prent livery.

Good shot Giorgio.
A lot of thought obviously went into this 'new' colour scheme. I prefer the old one too, but I'm glad it will be around for a little longer.

I can't see how they call that a "new" livery - it is a "revised" livery at best. I don't like the small titles - makes it look like interim colors or something. Nice pic though.

They managed to improve their c/s, looks great, even sporty, reminds me of the '70s Lancia Stratos rally car with its large Alitalia stickers. Can't wait to see it on the 777's. Bravissimo. To those who preferred the older one, don't be so conservative pls, a change every little now and then is what everyone needs. brgds / (gp)

Hmmm...doesn't really look any 'new' livery, looks kind of 1980's to me.

New livery? Please, all they did was move the green cheatline below the windows. It looks as bland as ever. Poor show, indeed. Good shot thoughl.

There are not very much changes!
I think, the old livery is better.

I had to go look at other Alitalia pics to see exactly what was different.

Great pic, thanks for uploading! I agree with the dude from Uruguay, I also miss the black nose, other than that I really like the new AZ livery.

It doesn't look as a NEW livery... Is the same old one, just from a different angle...

The new livery is quite similar to the old one. It's too bad the classic black nose is gone.

At first I though it's some joke. It looks almost the same. So it's not better or worse livery.

NO! is not good...Alitalia paint scheme has always been simple, elegant and effective! this one is just poor! anyway, the wings are interesting, they seems like treated to look as a mirror!

I still don´t like the green colour - the old one and this new. They should change it completely. A nice photo though.

I like the color scheme: without the black nose the plane seems less obsolete

Nice pic, but the livery is just an oversize stencil on a too small canvas. All the old stuff only bigger and it doesn't fit. Perhaps the black nose is now on the underside. I'm thinking this scheme was sized to fit the 777!

Some should remember that Alitalia is loosing a lot of money for years and you won't waste extra Euros repainting the whole fleet in a new totally different scheme...

I enjoy this picture because of the new color scheme the tail art is good because it dosent change too much from the old design and its simple plus i think alitalia should have a little change the wings look nicely treated i dont however like that their is no black nose i also dont like that their is no sky team logo or the word team in a red box after the alitalia logo but all in all a great pic
