Loving the new livery- I think it really suits the aircraft, especially in this light with the vibrant red engines and tail.

The text is way to big. Looks silly on the 747. - Note the text on the belly of the aircraft.

Oh love that red! Looks like the tornado red on a Mazda RX8. But a bit of blue is missing to represent the British flag.

Great photo that does the new titles much more justice. However they seem to have bungled with the placement of the lettering over the window line; it looks like it reads 'virgin atlanlic'.

It is a new livery alright, but definitely not the best. Love the New Red Color, but the titles are just total out of place. Way to go VIRGIN "ATLANLIC"

I LOVE the red! And i'm actually starting to like the new titles. If they were just a fraction smaller they'd be fine

The red shade is great. but the titles are too hideous. also the titles underneath the aircraft looks quite silly.

I love the red on this new livery although im still not sure about the titles. They look too large, although im sure they will look a lot better on the A340/A330's.

As mentioned below, that metallic red is absolutely fantastic, but the giant "Virgin Atlanlic" not only appears misspelled, but also draws away from the nice body lines of the 747, and the belly title being visible from the side is also goofy.

Bravo EK! for being the pioneer on belly titles. And Bravo Virgin Antlanlic for the great red you choose.

The red is lovely, can't wait to see it on the A346s and the A330s, Aeroflot's metallic livery already looks amazing on the latter. The titles kinda look stupid though.

Very nice metallic red, possibly the best I've seen on an aircraft. Just change the words and the livery should be near-perfect.
