However that "ITA Airways" aggravates me. The "Airways" under the windows looks like a Power Point presentation and the name ITA isn't appealing at all in my opinion but it is what it is.
I quite like it. But in the middle picture the Italian flag is false. Wouldn’t it be better to just paint the real flag on the tail even though it doesn’t match with the other side of the plane?

Several months back I took a stab at the tail section which is the weakest part of the livery imo; something more ANA -esque in terms of the logo application on the tail would have been better suited than whatever all those stars/patterns are...
My rendition of the ITA livery on an A320NEO:

do you pronounce ‘Italy’ as ‘i-t-a-ly’ or ‘ita-ly’
Thats your answer
Well the ITA stands for “Italia Trasporto Aereo”, not ‘ita-ly’, and you will find plenty of people who pronounce the airline more as e-ta (which is not how you pronounce the start of Italy in English, closer to start in Italian though), so it is not that straightforward.

I said it on the photo comment yesterday, the blue is beautiful but it just isn't the right color to combine with the colors of the Italian flag.rigo wrote:It looks military
I think you're focusing on the tail too much!...

Etihad, Qatar, Korean Air, KLM, Air Tahiti Nui, Royal Jordanian, and others would likely disagree that sophistication needs plain “euro white”. Predominately euro white liveries scream basic.

White is a colour used denote a basic or utility product though. There’s nothing sophisticated or even interesting about too much white. It’s used to maximise cost-cutting when aircraft change hands and on the lower end of the freighter market.
The basic problem with a many modern liveries is just poor design. The combination of colours and shapes to project an image, all matched to the physical properties to what it’s being applied to. Once an airline achieves a brand that has universal recognition and acceptance, they shouldn’t change it too much. A classic case of an airline understanding this would be Singapore Airlines. A classic case of an airline not understanding this would be Lufthansa, who managed to sabotage their iconic and instantly recognisable livery to follow the rest of the crowd.

I totally share your opinion about that blue. Maybe if something else we're in the rear it could work, but the contrast between the blue and the Italian colors gives me nausea!
