I think these are a great improvment from the last ones and its good that KX have rebranded and i hope that this is a good start for the future of KX.

Damn, just a month or so after they pulled their 30 year old IAH route a new livery is introduced that will likely never be seen at IAH........ that blows!

I can't say I'm crazy about the switch to a Eurowhite livery, but at least the tail makes up for it.

I like the tail but the white allover the rest is getting old and the cabin leaves something to be desired.

The white front section indicates they abolished the individual aircraft names...

From a designer's perspective, I think the 'eurowhite' fuselage works because the tail is so busy. A highly decorated fuselage (cheatlines, etc.) would make the overall design look cluttered, IMO. Being a different color other than white could be an improvement, but additional design work over the fuselage would ruin it, I think.
I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

I reeally like it!
It's a good thing that they kept the "pirate turtle". Very original and colorful.

Good job!

Is it me or does it look like they took a page out of the USAIrways special livery playbook with the layout and paintjob?

Unfortunately, I think the days of inventive liveries on aircraft fuselages are limited and more and more airlines will go with the white. Easy and cheap to maintain. Very nice tail logo though.  bigthumbsup
