Not to shabby, if you ask me.Looks somewhat plain (pun unintended). I wonder if they will put this one their 757s and 767s or if its just for the MAX/a one plane livery.

I really hope the “not done yet” comments are correct. It really looks like they leased that jet from Delta in 2005...

From the perspective of someone who liked the previous livery, I don't think it looked well on the shape of the 737 max when shown in the renderings.

Lets see: Letters are now "San Serifed", No titles on tail, No logo on winglets, Logo changed to single colour with no gradient, Blue belly colour has been drastically reduced, and Yellow stripe removed. It's OK, but bland, and has lost most of its class. Simplifying for the sake of simplifying isn't always a good thing. I give it a C - .

FI just bought a former Arkia 757-300, so we should see the new livery on a 757 very soon.

Sorry for going a bit off topic. But can you give me links to Icelandic aviation groups. I'd be very interested in checking them out. :)


Look for "Flugnördar" on Facebook, foreigners are welcome. :)

I would not expect that, this revised livery is most likely done to make the MAX more proportional, like the ydid when the 767 entered the fleet, (drew the belly line lower than on the 757), I think the new -300 vill look exactly like the other 75s

Been looking at flights to Paris for the airshow in June 2019. I think they are only out about a year on Icelandairs site. But they are listing the 737-8 Max on the MSP-->KEF route. I was saddened to not see the 757 on this route.

The 757 will be on there as well. It’s at 11 flights per week. On no day will there only be a B737-8

I’ve done a quick search on the new Icelandair livery as per the dictionary.

Boring - not interesting.
Bland - lacking strong features or characteristics and therefore uninteresting.

Interesting, so after canceling their previous order for a second 753, they finally decided to source one more, and with a new livery.

The grey belly just looks so dated and characterless. It would even look better if the fuselage were just all white. At least then it would be contemporary.

Very subtle change... not much to say about it really. I think it looks a little clearer and more modern. Sure, the old livery wasn't awful but I don't really find anything offensive about this refresh. The only thing I'm curious about is the tail logo- it doesn't seem to have any shading like on the logo from wikipedia posted above. If it gets the shading it'll look good, but if it doesn't I'll be disappointed.

Anyway, I sure hope I get to see this scheme in person at DTW one day ;)

At that time Boeing asked Icelandair to cancel, they wanted to close down the line. Icelandair got a good price on some 737-800 instead. Icelandair never used the 737-800 themselves, but sold them onward or leased them out.
Icelandair has been looking for used 757-300 with RR engines for a while.

This revised livery wouldn’t be as awful if the grey belly were dark blue and with the old yellow line. I also can’t get used to seeing the tail with out ICELANDAIR written on it

Worth nothing that the level of detail on the winglet logo doesn't match that of the tail. The tail is a flat, 2 dimensional, 1-color bore. The winglets have shading, dimension, and color similar to the current logo. There must be more to come when this jet gets to KEF... I don't know if it'll be enough to save the tragedy that's already apparent, but it gives me hope.

Compared to their current livery, this is awful.
Compared to Lufthansa's new livery, this is beautiful.

I hope they indeed finish the livery at KEF.
Icelandair's livery is very classy and elegant. This one looks cheap. Reminds me of an interim leased aircraft.
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Getting "Icelandair" of the tail is fine by me. Flattening out the logo with one color looks cheap and ULCC to me. Abstracting a logo like Delta did with the widget is obviously now a trend. The old livery was very classy. Is FI in a battle with WW for the cheapest tacky branding race?

If you look at the "F" on the winglets the shading is there. The tail will probably come next.
Do you think it will be some sort of mask applied?

I like the grey.

I wonder if the 737 has a belly logo?? Grey belly to make a belly logo stand out more perhaps? Anyone?

By the way....about FI's 737max. I'm booked to fly it in late June and have a near engine window seat (9A), but I see loads of space what looks like 3 windows missing there.
Does anyone have a detailed seatmap by any chance of this new bird?

The aircraft was officially delivered to Icelandair yesterday. Based on the banner hanging in the background, that is indeed the final livery. The only thing that looks to be added in KEF is the vinyl tail logo.

That’s incorrect. Check the belly, it’s clearly the standard blue. The only difference is that it doesn’t extend all the way to the nose due to the different nose design on the 737 vs 757/767, which was known was the plan for the MAX all along.

Unfortunately I think you’re incorrect. The belly looks grey to me. Also, on Icelandairs official Facebook page, a few people have complained about the new livery. They replied saying “the paint will be finalised in Iceland so the tail and logo are not final in the picture. There have been some changes to the livery with the name excluded from the tail and the grey belly. This is done to make the livery lighter and more modern but also to answer some maintenance needs”.

That would greatly surprise me as many sources high up at FI have said that the blue color will be applied to the belly in KEF. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
