New OS Livery Coming Very Soon?

Wed Mar 25, 2015 4:07 pm

Hi all,

Apologies if this discussed already, done a search but can't find any other post.

According to Skyliner-aviation.de (link below) an A321 (LBC) is due in new livery tomorrow.

http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb.main?LC=nav4&page=2

Can anyone confirm or have access to a sneaky preview?

I hope one of the best liveries in Europe isn't going to disappear, fingers crossed.

Cheers
bluesky

If so, I hope it's not vastly different as I really like the existing one.

The presentation of the New Austrian was supposed to happen tommorow, however due to the Germanwings accident its postponed to April 1st. The aircraft is still scheduled to depart my home airport (BTS) tommorow, but that might change. If not, you should see first pictures on my site www.planecrazy.sk

No sneak preview, as OS made an excellent job covering it up. But as per austrian media, it will be now titled MyAustrian . The blue will be gone and the bottom will feature a big "Servus".

Lets see the livery before we know if it was a good date or not. Im hoping for a subtle change personally.

Thanks for update Marosbts.

Sad to see the light blue go, the current livery is great as the red compliments the sky blue well.
I remain open minded but with other recent reblands (sorry rebrands ) I am slightly apprehensive.

Makes sense to delay slightly due to yesterday's tragedy. As Doclightning mentioned in post above 1st April not the best date to choose.

I suspect that LH may want to choose a corporate identity for OS that more closely matches the LH brand. I would not be surprised to see the LH typeface, grey underbelly, and grey nacelles.

LH has a brand? Seems more like five brands to me. If LH mgmt. treatment of OS is any guide, the livery should be something between SN and EW / 4U, which would be a sad sight compared to what OS can stand for and has stood for.

I'm not sure if the blue represents something to Austria, but it seems out of place. The color isn't integrated into the livery very well. The first thing you notice about the plane is the red and white theme, and then the blue presents itself in a disjointed manner.

OS/LH are still going to have to pull something amazing out of bag (or hanger) to beat the current OS livery.

The sky blue is used inside their planes as the back of wall panels. Guess now they will change that too.

When the current OS livery came out I was real big fan. But honestly, today it looks very sloppy. Something a child could do up in MS paint in about 5 minutes. The blue base on the livery is an awkward length and shapes oddly how is bends up a quarter of the way down the aircraft then continues to the tail on the same level. The shape of the white space on the tail looks like a sorry excuse not invert the logo so they try to pull it off as the Austrian flag. The font hasn't aged well and has lost character. It's definitely time for a change but from what people have been saying here it sounds like the change won't be as amazing as it could be. But the worst thing they could do is give it the GermanWings / EuroWings treatment which I hope they don't as OS is a prominent legacy carrier.

The blue is too light on the engines and is used too sparingly to read "sky". Then the Sky blue is not integrated with the rest of the design. It is disjointed. Butt tomorrow we'll see.

This wouldn't have anything to do with Eurovision just a few off, would it?

Also, noticed their Google+ and Facebook logo changed to grey? Was that for the Germanwings accident or new logo?

That's all because of 4U accident. LH did the same.

If any case, tomorrow is a bad time to announce a logo for OS considering current events. They should postpone it by a month.

Austria's last Eurovision song I think was the grand winner 'Rise like a Phoenix' by the beardazzled Conchita Würst so if this bird has anything to do with it, it would be totally inappropriate in the wake of the GermanWings tragedy.

Hmmm, thats a very boring livery. Its not going to be polarising like the new AA or IB, but I doubt anyone will say "wow, that looks great". I find the "my" very odd. It's not "my" airline, and I doubt getting onboard will be any different when it is "my" Austrian compared to when it was not "my" Austrian. Very wierd branding.

What is it with all this "my" marketing crap? "my ebay", "MeinSchiff", "meinfernBus", "My-Austrian" ... It's NOT my Austrian! If it was MY austrian I would walk around the cabin in my PJ and demand access to the jumpseat and the hold as I am the king of my house where I need to know all corners and would throw out all other passengers as they have nothing to loiter around in MY cabin.

Exactly. Don't forget to mention the cabin. It featured green seats with red, yellow and white covers.



Are we sure that this livery is rolled out to every plane? To me the my Austrian branding looks like a special livery to promote the "Austrian my Holiday" package tours.

I am not fan of 'my' brand. There is myTesco and that is enough....  

BUT, I somewhat like the livery (it could be better, but to start with I did not like the blue on AUA planes). I can see little resemblance to its roots (a lot original livery).

I love the up-date old livery (with blue to green cheat line). To me, this is still very classy and nice livery!

They've even been so uncreative to put "my" in front of Austrian.

The BMI engines are ok and sort of work with tail.

Maybe they can paint a beard on this one.

Sorry but my judgement on this effort is.....nil points.....

What was wrong with the livery that it needed change in just over a decade? to me it was all ok atleast you could spot it from the ground as an Austrian plane, any other airlines that ditched coloured bellies? PIA went from green to beige.

have you even studied art and design, whats odd to the average joe is remarkable in that world, I too found it odd when it came out but with time it really started looking good and better than any of their previous brandings especially the silly fading cheatline one with the Wrigley's chewing gum logo in between flag stripes.

Was once asked to rush a new livery design for OS over night for a magazine, the article was scrubbed (I presume as it never saw print). but this is the design I came up with

https://arpdesign.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/austrian-1.png


Before you all criticise, I only had a couple of hours to think it up!
The tail is a slightly stylised flag. The belly represents the lush Austrian countryside and hills.
That's as far as my thought process went!

Even though I don't like my own design. I find it preferable to what's being offered!
