Alaska Air A321neo More to Love Livery Revealed!

Fri Feb 16, 2018 4:18 am

Alaska just posted a photo on instagram showing their newest a321 in the more to love livery! Unless the wall was reflective, it looks like there is another one sitting in the background! Great job AS!

I'm more intrigued by the oddity of seeing Chester on an Airbus, than the livery... but oh well, better than EuroWhite.

Good for AS, good for Airbus, good for everyone. Hope we see more oddballs out there! :)

What a beautiful A321 in the livery! Hope one of the A319s/A320s get this! Probably not gonna happen but would still look pretty freaking awesome!

Yes, it is indeed two planes. Both N926VA and N927VA will be painted in this scheme.

This special scheme is nice and all, but I'm more looking forward to seeing one in the standard scheme. The Alaska paint looks pretty snazzy on the A320 and I'm sure it'll look even better on a sharkletted 321NEO.

When, or do, the Virgin America deliveries get the AS-interior with no live TV and VX layout?

I haven’t kept track of the merger, I’m a little out of the loop. How much longer will they be operated seperate, will AS keep them on the existing virgin routes or will they be moved around the AS system.

This bird should have unbeatable CASM. If this what’s rolling off of Airbus’ production lines now, the 7M10 is dead already.
In all seriousness I can’t wait to see this thing with engines in natural light. I hope AS does air to air footage with the two 321Ns and the 739.

Maybe all the AS/VX Airbuses should get a special livery. Of course that would be expensive. But as av-geeks, how cool would it be to see Chester on the tail and each plane dedicated to say a city served by the combined carriers?

This livery is wonderful. Would be great to see the A321 and B737-900ER side by side.
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.

I keep thinking this is a way to acknowledge Virgin and it’s employees/legacy without putting anything that may trigger licensing fees on the outside. Smart move

Yes, as long as it is registered in Germany, it has a German flag.

So I assume the "D-AZAA is a sticker over the tail number she well receive later, is she currently actually owned by Airbus?

Interesting point. And there's the 737 out there with the same colors. While it's meant to reference AS and VX, there's a bit of irony with it being on a 321 now....more to love vs. the....737?

The aircraft will only have its final registration after client acceptance. Until this moment it has a temporary registration that follows the rules of the country were it is build (in this case german registration and german flag on the tail). When the aircraft is painted the final registration is there and the temporary one is just a sticker that is removed once the client accept the plane and is ready to fly home.

Boeing does the same thing, don't they? I see photos of Air Canada 737 MAX's in US registration sometimes.

Yes they do it when they ferry planes for painting, but i think that the rules in America are a little different, and after paint the aircraft can already fly with its final registration visible.

Yep. All Boeing planes wear an N number until the customer accepts the aircraft before delivery. They have quite a few reserved. If you run a search for a given test reg in the photo database, chances are good a number of different birds will show up. Pretty sure Airbus does this as well. The one difference is that Boeing doesn't throw a U.S. flag on during pre-delivery testing. Is that an EU requirement?

Aircrafts from Toulouse don't have it, so it might be a German thing only.

The flag on the tail is a Gernan requirement that only applies to aircraft's with a provisional registration. There is a curious case regarding the current Lufthansa A321 with retro paint (D-AIDV) that during the testing phase had two German flags on the tail, one from the actual retro paint and another stick one because of the provisional registration.

I really like the blue Chester tail. It would be cool if AS could incorporate this tail on the new AS livery... at least a few frames. :)

Interesting! Never really thought about it, but I've never seen pictures of a test bird at TLS with a French flag. The more you know...

Also, on the topic--this livery is good. Saw the 739 coming into SEA for the first time recently, hopefully these two will make an appearance soon!

The requirement applies to all German-registered aircraft. Displaying it in a different place (such as LH do on the fuselage) requires a variation approval from the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt.

Yes we know, and no they’re not changing the livery fleetwide. These are specials only.

I was going to ask the question, why not put it over the US flag? But I'm guessing this is the reason? It has to go on the tail? Are the rules specific enough that the flag needs to go near the top center of the tail?

How tough would it be to have an airline sport this kind of livery fleetwise? I understand that white is cheaper and better for performance, but some airlines have fully painted birds. Is the fading between colors much more expensive to apply?

There is also the fact that it's so much better than any Boeing offering in terms of capabilities, including the ability to accept containerized cargo. That said, put this next to N493AS (the B739 in this livery).

AFAIK a 4-color livery is included with any new 737. Having a polished plane or more colors is extra, at least from Boeing.

A Ferrari is faster than my toyota, however i cannot utilize the marginal utility a ferrari offers.

There is nothing in AS's network that can't be flown now, that an A321 can do. The 737's are lighter and more efficient on shorter legs anyways.

Yet many airlines still Bulk load the A320neo family, containers aren’t much of an advantage.

Does AS mix their two premerger fleets? For example, if I was on a route that was AS only premerger, would I be able to fly on an A32X? Or do they only use repainted aircraft on these routes? Do the A32X stay within VX routes?

Does AS mix their two premerger fleets? For example, if I was on a route that was AS only premerger, would I be able to fly on an A32X? Or do they only use repainted aircraft on these routes? Do the A32X stay within VX routes?


As of right now, all previously AS routes are on Boeing, and all previously VX routes are on Airbus. Boeing/Airbus routes will be getting switched up starting in May I think, and flight attendant crews will be cross-training July-December of this year (this I know for sure)
A319 A320 A321 A321N A332 A333 A359 A388 AT72 B717 B733 B734 B734C B735 B73G B738 B739 B744 B752 B763 B764 B772 B789 B78X CRJ2 CRJ7 CRJ9 DH8D E135 E140 E145 E170 E175 E190 MD80 MD90

When will delivery’s start getting the AK N-number? I assume it won’t be the A321Neos but will the A320Neos be delivered as VX or AK?

How tough would it be to have an airline sport this kind of livery fleetwise? I understand that white is cheaper and better for performance, but some airlines have fully painted birds. Is the fading between colors much more expensive to apply?


$$$ Why? AS rebranding a couple of years ago was one of the best we've seen in awhile. I liked VX every time I flew them, same with AS. VX fans need to get over the fact they are gone.
