What Colours Do The 757 Look Best In?

Sat Sep 20, 2003 5:15 am

I haven't done one of these for three weeks so i thought let's do one and although i've covered a load of a/c i haven't covered the Boeing 757. One of the bestsellers ever. I think best overseas is hands down delta and here in England Monarch (n/c) and air 2000 are nice!!! What do you think???

I think the classic Britannia colours scheme looks best. Very graceful, classy and elegent.

Agree with above post. Eastern was the best for the 757 (as well as the L10).

While I love Delta, I'd say that National II had the most strikingly beautiful colors on the 757.

A340600,

National went belly-up about a year ago....kind of sad since they had good planes, good service and cheap fares.

I like it in the US Airways scheme... But to be honest I think it looks best in the American scheme.... It's just so original.

HlywdCatft - To bad the Cardinals are absolutely terrible this year, but still a good paint scheme. But I really like the NW(Bowling shoe) and Icelandair paint scheme on the 757.
