Clean and fresh new look of malaysia airlines plane..

4 stars for the photographer. Excellent photo with perfect timing. Despite that, not so good livery. It may look fine on a 737-800 or maybe the A330 (yes they did that too), but once this livery is applied to a 747, 777 or A380, it won't good. It's not good enough for a national carrier.

Simple new livery design....

A visitor from China posted Tue January 4, 2011:
After staying with its existing livery for a long time, MAS should have taken this opportunity to create something better.

A visitor from - posted Wed December 22, 2010:
It is said that this new livery saves fuel costs because it supposedly weights less. I think Malaysian Airlines said that to make an excuse for this simple livery.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed December 15, 2010:
Quite a bad livery! looks more like a charter-airline than a serious 5-star-airline! I hope they create a better livery by the time they get their A 380s! That livery on the big airbus ??? NO WAY, should look weird!
a dissapointment...

A visitor from Argentina posted Fri November 5, 2010:
There's a reason for having lots of white...it reflects heat...and as for the livery..could be more creative.

A visitor from Singapore posted Mon November 1, 2010:
I dont like it. Prefer the old livery.
What a disappointment, for one of my favorite airlines

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu October 28, 2010:
Not bad.I think this livery don't looks so good on a wide body aircraft especially on the T7.Anyway,well done MAS!!

A visitor from - posted Wed October 27, 2010:
Nice shot, not so nice livery. at first glance thought it was BA in some special livery :p

A visitor from - posted Fri October 22, 2010:
Could have done better. Why don't they update the jellyfish symbol as well?

A visitor from Germany posted Thu October 21, 2010:
Hope they paint the MASkargo planes like this one as well...

A visitor from - posted Thu October 21, 2010:
Nice Job!! MAS and i really don't see anything wrong with the WAU Logo and oh yeah that's not Jellyfish!!..

A visitor from - posted Thu October 21, 2010:
It seems that they are going to fight AK/TR instead of SQ/TG.. I hope that this is not "the real deal", will look weird on the A380s

A visitor from - posted Tue October 19, 2010:
I agree,they should come out with a new logo replacing the old jellyfish.

A visitor from Indonesia posted Mon October 18, 2010:
4* for the pic,1* for the livery! I was hoping for a better evolution, just like GA/MS/SU did.... Even their sister company (firefly/MASwings) livery is MUCH better than this one!

A visitor from - posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Finished or unfinished, the malaysiaairlines titles and the stripes seems like the livery is poorly designed.The colors does not reflect Malaysia,i see it more like a Philippine or Nepal LCC.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon October 18, 2010:
5 stars to the photo, 1 for the livery. I don't like it over the old classic one. However, if they had more red stripes like in the flag and also the yellow sun and moon like in the real flag, just in a kind of waving over the whole fuselage, then it would be nice. Now, it looks unfinished to me.

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Too much white !

A visitor from - posted Mon October 18, 2010:
I like it

A visitor from - posted Sun October 17, 2010:
5 out of 10, too much white, no creativity

A visitor from India posted Sun October 17, 2010:
Nice shot, but disappointing livery. How is this an improvement? The old one is way better than this. If only MH chose the Heliconia or the Hibiscus theme as their standard livery...

A visitor from - posted Sun October 17, 2010:
Good improvement but they should have updated their old jellyfish logo too.

A visitor from - posted Sun October 17, 2010:
Fuselage stripes quite resemble Philippine Airlines' tail minus the sun, but note that blue and red are found on both countries' flags

A visitor from - posted Sun October 17, 2010:
Looks like a Philippine-based LCC carrier to me. Love the shot though :)

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Not so much of a WoW factor, too much white and it looks very sharky - Igevu

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Once again MAS has proved that they are under cost saving arena,livery looks very simple and the previous livery where red and blue line trails towards the tail cone now shorten up to the mid fuselage.Eventually it looks better for narrow body 738 but not on a wide body aircraft.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Sat October 16, 2010:
The first new look of Malaysia Airlines! The height of the aircraft on this shot is just great and the contrast of the dark back ground with white aircrat is just perfect!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Approximately 1981, after the original two red lines had been tapered to the tail cone in the first modification, MH trialled 2 further (minor) variations. Niether of these two trials, which involved sweeping one of the red lines up to the fin, came to pass and they stayed with version 2 (tapered lines). Maybe this new one is just testing the water. . . . Regards - musang

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Could have done better. Imagine all the 738 in this colour scheme. Boring!!!

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Nice picture with this new color scheme. a slight change with a slightly better look. not much. but we can always say it's a positive change.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Not the best. I had hope that the livery would be greater. The last special c/s looks so great and the "normal" livery issn´t good.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Better than the old livery but still bland.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Rather elegant livery I guess. I love it.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
From my point of view as a designer,the livery looks cheap. Quite disappointing,I was expecting something more creative than this.Perhaps not enough thought have been put into the design of the new livery.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Nice scheme :)

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
...the new livery seems a bit cheap...it makes Malaysia Airlines look like a LCC! I prefered the old one, because it looks like a retro style livery, without actually being one!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Too much white. It looks unimaginative. Thumbs down!

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Could have been better

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 16, 2010:
The 737 just keeps on getting streched. The main landing gears don't seem to change; will just have to suck it up.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
I was so exited to see the new livery, but I'm a little bit dissapointed now. I expected something more exciting, but this new livery isn't a good improvement.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Looks ok. Far better then their old livery but I hoped for something more special. Like a Egyptair/Garuda livery change.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Sat October 16, 2010:
I have wait so long until now for MAS to change their livery.can't wait for the big boys and change their look into this!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Amazing livery!

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Nice!!

A visitor from Australia posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Looks quite nice, improvement on the dull grey underside

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
I love the new livery! Great shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Very nice pic! New livery? Only slightly better than the old one (gone are the grey underbelly bits) but in my honest opinion, could have done better!

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Finally MH have new colour sheme.

A visitor from Egypt posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Nice, but nothing spectacular, had hoped for something more exciting.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
The new one looks good!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat October 16, 2010:
That is one stylish scheme! Can't wait to see the big boys in the new colours.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
This is what i want Malaysia Airlines!!..

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Nope. Thumbs down. The flag especially looks out of place IMO. Perhaps they could have done well to remove it from that spot and increase the font size of 'Malaysia'.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
This is not an improvement compared to the former livery.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Pretty underwhelming if you ask me, I was expecting something much more creative.

The new livery just make the airline looks cheap!

I don't like this at all....i like more the previous one...

A visitor from Australia posted Fri October 15, 2010:
The tail seems to have funny ripples in it? Cant wait to see the 747s in this livery..

A visitor from Australia posted Fri October 15, 2010:
Love the New Livery, it looks Brilliant, well done Malaysia Airlines and Thank You Rick for a great crisp clear picture.
