Good photo, but a horrible modification to what was already a great livery. The HUGE writing looks very odd! Can Virgin never stick to one livery these days.

The titles are so big ... about the star alliance text on some star alliance liveries

Well this sure is something. Variation? Also I see titles on the bottom of the aircraft as well. Somehow I cannot picture these titles on the 340's.- Randall Johnson

It really does look like the Star Alliance font!
I prefer the original livery to be honest,
( - Try to be a bit more detailed than just posting "great shot!"- ) "Great shot" though!

This typography does not suit the Virgin logo at all.

Thanks for bringing us this fresh cookie, but i can only hope this is a joke. the old, small virgin title looked so perfectly balanced while this just looks like a tacky, overwhelmingly big ad of some sort. it takes all the elegance from what is the 747 :( not feelin' it at all

Great job on shooting this! Personally, I like the new livery, but it seems that I'm the minority here!

Nice catch, but this typography really takes away from the elegant body lines of the 744. I really hope they don't redo all their A/C in this fashion.

Great photo, although i really dont like this new livery! I much prefer the old one. It looked a lot more professional. This livery makes virgin atlantic look a bit tacky in my opinion.

I think that this livery is fantastic. I think a little change goes a long way, and Virgin did an excellent job here. To me, it gives a more "art-deco" type look to the plane.

I quite like it. The 747s won't be around much longer anyway. Because the font is rounded and not so angular I think it will go really well on the A380s which has quite a round nose.

Great shot, but this new font does not tie in with or have any relationship to the Virgin logo. They're singing from different song sheets during the same piece of music!

Come on all u disikers, Virgin's titles were always tasteless, standard size, in a so called 'hip' computing/'electric' font... Now they finally do something to distantiate themselves from the competition and u guys start whining. I quite like it, even tho I have never and will never like Virgin; BA has way more class.

Nice photo but nope, don't like that typeface. Bad design in my opinion, it's a very 'liny' font, which at that scale detracts from the shape and contours of the aircraft itself. It might work if it was slightly smaller and further forward but as it is, I think it clashes terribly with the shape of the 747.

I think the font looks too big and obnoxious.

Great photo, awful new livery from Virgin Atlantic. The text saying Virgin Atlantic must be massive, just compare it with those engines.

The photo is excellent, well-composed with a dramatic sky in the background, but i absolutely cannot believe how poor the font is! please may virgin blue / pac blue / poly blue not follow this 'lead' ...

I work for Virgin Atlantic and I'm very disappointed with yet another new livery. It looks like a cheap no-frills airline now. Very sad. Nice to see where the company profits are going!

Not too sure about that livery - although i'd imagine it would look good on and A340. Thats considering they havent changed it again by the time they get round to painting them!!

Disappointing! the text on the tail has got smaller and the large texts on the side is also repeated on the bottom! Lets hope this is the only aircraft to be painted like this, a one off!

The new font on the fuselage really doesn't suit VS. If they wanted to increase the font size, they should have done just that, but not changed the actual font as well.

I think it looks great, the font is very prolific and the colour scheme against that background is fantastic!

Virgin Atlantic always presents excellents liveries in its fleet. Not saturated schemes, color combination and very clear fonts make its aircrats very remarkable! at any place they are.
