Air Tahiti Nui really crammed every single thing they could into their present livery. The flower, the ripples of the sea, the huge white bold titles, the red and white swish of the FP flag. It's all a little....much. Not too much for the 2000's, but a little much as we head toward 2020 and the design world has moved on to flatter, more elegant, less skeuomorphic designs. I think a simple use of the flower motif against some interesting colour choices could make for a beautiful and interesting livery, without the nascar overkill design currently in use. We shall see...

WHOAH!!

I just saw this video. If this is a sign of the livery to come then this is *extremely* exciting. The flat, bold colours of Henri Matisse, Polynesian iconography. Yes, yes, yes.

Hey guys,
I agree, a fantastic video! I hope the new livery does use the motifs and the colours shown in the video. if so, it could be as impressive as Fiji Airways.

The new livery has been revealed and I think it provides a modern touch to a classic livery!
Very curious to see this when it rolls out of the factory

They made it better! Fantastic! I never liked the red-flag lines before but much more elegant this time. And the patterning on the rear of the fuselage combined with some Polynesian design motifs on the tail... brilliant!

An airline with a handful of aircraft can keep their identity whilst tweeking it in such a way to make it look more modern and contemporary where as the giants are going the opposite way, hats off to TN!

I really hope that this is the new livery because it’s beautiful! But are we sure? The logo doesn’t match their new logo on their website etc... it looks like the old logo to me.

Very happy with that. Loses none of the charm of the previous livery but adds a few small and appreciated details. I can’t wait to see it on a real 787.

I'm confused. The frangipani (?) flower on the tail of the 787 model is not consistent with the branding shown and discussed earlier on in the thread and now apparent on their website. Is the 787 model really a final version of the new livery?
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

Is it just me, or does smaller airlines (relative term) seems to always do a better job at rebranding / brand refresh compared to major airlines i.e. flag carriers??

I've thought that as well. Maybe because they do not have as many aircraft to repaint? I'd prefer to think it's always a good job by management, which can probably explain some of the duds that have come out.
I have been on this site 15 years. A unrecoverable email account led me to starting over. Those of you who call me a rookie, you may stop ok?

Maybe because smaller airlines do not have global reach they can show more proudly their roots and origins through their liveries to stand out on the crowd!
Well done Air Tahiti Nui (also love Fiji and Hawaiian).

I am not sure this is the final livery as for example, the tiare flower on tail does not match the previously revealed update.

That is *GORGEOUS!* Distinctive, recognizable, excellent continuity, and not at all bland. The only thing I'd tweak is to move the titles above the windows. But WOW!

Not sure if this is official, but its the new logo on a 787 with an updated version of the current livery... the water pattern has been replaced by a Polynesian art design, the double red stripe has been moved further back and slimmed down and the blue appears to be a bit darker than the current livery... again im not sure if this official

At first, I was not too sure if this is best for NT. However, I am very impressed.

This is amazing! Simply put, an elegant refresh.

Gorgeous livery!

Unusual how different it is from the officially released images of the new branding, hopefully this is indeed the new livery because they've clearly gone to the effort of updating it and have done so in a wonderful way.

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.

Hey mate,
I agree... The island image looks awful, but overall it's a great colourscheme.
I too wonder at the difference between the two versions of the tiare flower ... Perhaps we have to wait for the rollout of the real thing to find out which one IS the 'real thing'!
I Would love to see TN 787s in Sydney one day .... I reckon that here would be enough of a market for them to have another go at Australia!

And look at that cabin...finally an airline that comes up with real COLOUR..and a soothing, relaxin palette to boot! Not yet another dark-blue or gray cabin for once...
Top airline execs and those ever so creatively-thinking designers should take a look at this.....

At least they should have used the new flower logo on the tail, something doesn't seem right, original design may have run into opposition and a compromise reached keeping current one with tweaks.

The flower is actually called Tiare...Tahitian gardenia.

Woooow.... this beats AZAL and Royal Jordanian for the most attractive scheme worn by a 787. Just looking at it makes me want to drop everything and go to Tahiti. Whoever designed this scheme deserves a bonus or at least an upgrade to a corner office at their design firm!

I am not sure how I feel about the billboard titles. The ligature gets lost in the windows. I think the font may need to be thicker and the lettering slightly enlarged. The Polynesian carriers certainly do have some of the best liveries going however. Air Tahiti Nui, Fiji Airways, and Hawaiian Airlines are all winners in the branding department.
