Pretty underwhelming if you ask me, I was expecting something much more creative.

This is not an improvement compared to the former livery.

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'.

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!

Looks ok. Far better then their old livery but I hoped for something more special. Like a Egyptair/Garuda livery change.

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.

The 737 just keeps on getting streched. The main landing gears don't seem to change; will just have to suck it up.

...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!

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.

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.

Could have done better. Imagine all the 738 in this colour scheme. Boring!!!

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

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!

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.

Not so much of a WoW factor, too much white and it looks very sharky - Igevu

Looks like a Philippine-based LCC carrier to me. Love the shot though :)

Fuselage stripes quite resemble Philippine Airlines' tail minus the sun, but note that blue and red are found on both countries' flags

Good improvement but they should have updated their old jellyfish logo too.

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...

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.

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.

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!

I agree,they should come out with a new logo replacing the old jellyfish.

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

There's a reason for having lots of white...it reflects heat...and as for the livery..could be more creative.

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...

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.

After staying with its existing livery for a long time, MAS should have taken this opportunity to create something better.

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.
