You can see the difference on the tail compared to the 737MAX8

Meanwhile the first 737MAX8 for Air Italy is now painted

Looks pretty good to me. I look forward to seeing them over the skies of Europe.

Looks rather nice, IMO. But I must say I was hoping I’d see an “I-XXXX” rego on the frames. Wonder how this will impact AZ’s business structure (when they have one).

Definitely one of the better liveries in recent history.

If you look at the tail of the A332 (top picture) the blue and moroon colours are forward of what they are on the 737MAX8

Isn’t that simply a function of having a larger surface area? I can’t see any difference in the actual pattern.

The top of the tail on the A330 is clearly not correct it's the elements are too far forward, part of the green gets cut off in a strange way. Here is the A330 back in white.

The A330 tail looks either sized wrong forxthe surface area, or the livery was upside down. The small maroon patches were on the wrong side of the blue rectangles.

Hard to say without better photo's of the A330

I know, seems like some kind of snub for unknown reasons. Why does white A330 have a grey belly., none of the two carriers colours support that

I've read elsewhere that an incorrect shade of one of the colours (I don't know which) was used on the A330. It would be hard to discern a difference from the photos.

As far as I'm aware and what was stated at the time of the name change to Air Italy the airline is not intended to be a full LCC.

The design is nice but the colours: Eurowings.

Why on earth?! There are so many colours to choose from. These colours don't make me think "Italy!" and they belong to an existing carrier right around the corner!

Colour choice makes sense when you think about it (the maroon at least!), no need to change interiors from QR.

Ah, yes, nothing says 'Italy' like random blue and maroon lines... The least they could have done is make them red and green.

Not sure if i'm a fan of the livery. At least it's colorful and not boring like some hideous stuff we've seen lately.
However... looks totally out of place when the airline is named Air ITALY.
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.

Are they going repaint the 330 or just leave it white?

Go figure, someone signs off at the company of the rendering and then they reject it. Unless the actual paint job was different then what the airline approved, then they should be paying big time for it.

I always have wondered Why in the name of GOD, Mexican airlines (until viva aerobus) never used the national colours, and in that case Italian Aircraft...Red and Green look fantastic and obviously Italy is no strange to great design.... baffles the mind to see such horrible colors and terrible CS.

Alitalia uses the Red and Green very well. They have a beautiful livery.

If Air Italy did not want to clash with Alitalia by using red/green, they should have at least chosen something other than blue/burgundy (or is it maroon?).

Absolutely NOTHING about that idiotic "livery" says ITALY.

All white -- cheesy font .. and what looks like blue and purple specks that someone vomited up all over the tail ... that's sad .... that's all they could come up with ?

Another one with no branding. Bravo.

Would help to have the same angle pic of both. The angles are too far apart to tell & neither shows the whole tail.

Do we know the config of the 737? I assume being owned by QR they will have an AU/US style business class as opposed to eurostyle seat blocked?

Be interesting to see if they tap into the Maxs range fully!

IMO the livery looks really good. I don't know where your problem is?! This one is colourful, it's modern and it's something different to AZ.


The red, green and white colours are used by AZ, so Air Italy couldn't use the same colours from a marketing perspective. Also there is no reason anymore in these times to be all nationalistic and demand a "italian livery" with the colours of the home flag. That's actually bullshit. On the other hand, should AZ fail, it would be no problem in tweaking the new livery into a more nationalistic one. Replace vioelt with red and turquois with green, ready is the flagship-livery...
