Best New Scheme

Mon Feb 12, 2001 5:19 am

Out of all the new schemes coming out, what do you think is the best? I personally LOVE the new SAS scheme, it is really cool. What do you think?

I don't think there are many schemes which are better than the airline's old one. Delta, British Airways, Finnair are some examples.
All new schemes has white as base color and that's so boring.

Among the ones which has better schemes now than before is Southwest and maybe some few more.

SAS and BMI are two examples which have change their livery to something more interesting than it was before, but I think when an airline changes its livery why don't make something extraordinary??

I like JAL livery the best. But China Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Northwest, Continental, American and Saudi Arabian schemes are also good.

I think Aloha Airlines new scheme is a vast improvement over the older scheme. I've seen the Aloha 737's in Oakland and they look great in person.  Wow!

Southwest's new livery is the most original, and definitely looks great.

Most of the "ID`s" are unfortunately not really creative -too much white and some colors on the tail.
I personally like Saudi Arabian, Royal Jordanian and Cathay Pacific

Virgin Atlantic has the best new livery that came out in the last 3 years. Its an example for how in a time of obviously frightened CEOs and Boards an airline can still make a point with its colours. 2nd place goes to the brilliant scheme of LanChile, 3rd to US Air.

Some examples for slight improvements are Condor, Southwest, BWIA, Sun Country.

Almost all other airlines changing their livery recently only show how boring and uninspired they are. Delta, Finnair, Sabena, Swissair, LTU, Syrianair, Air Pacific, El Al, TAM, all made a turn in the wrong direction. Especially Europe has a lot of airlines with boring liveries now. The USA is a lot better here (with the odd exception of Delta of course).

The new Air Transat colors on a Tristar... although I gotta admit I'm kind of biased on this one.

The new BMI colors also look really great..
