What Is Your Least Favorite Livery?

Fri Feb 17, 2006 10:02 pm

I searched and could not find a string on this so I apologize if it's been overdone.

What is your least favorite livery of any airline?

I vote for CP Air in the 70's. The orange and red over bare metal. UGLY.

loved the '70s CP one - the whole point is that is was a 70's livery , subtlety be damned  Big grin

but I hate the way TG have screwed up their livery , don't ***k with a classic I say , although I admit I seem to be a minority of one on that .

IMHO it is time for American to get a new livery. That red, white, and blue cheatline may be patriotic, but it has gotten OLD.

Cheatlines in general are old.

Both UA and DL's new liveries do absolutely nothing for me. SQ is a classic, but time for an update and CX 744s look a bit odd to me with the greyish colour coming too far up the side of the A/C....it doesn't look so bad on 777s and 330/340 ac however.

Malasyian is awful. That battleship grey is appauling. Looks like they forgot to paint the bottom 3rd of the plane.

I dislike all white with minimalist airline color identification. Also, I am no fan of the .com craze on planes. I agree with those who dislike the current United livery...it looks sinister and uninviting.

I don't like UA's old livery at all. Grey is worse than white, if you ask me. I actually like UA's new livery even though most people don't.

The 747-400 looks absolutely STUNNING in the new livery. I wish they would paint the rest of the 747 fleet.

AF, Lufthansa-in fact all the Eurowhites and JAL-same reason. Love United's new livery. SN Brussels does have some colours in it, but the designs just don't go together at all-a real mess.

Southwest's "Canyon Blue" livery is better than the old brown scheme, but it's still ugly.

US Airways old (still current on most of the fleet) livery was never one of my favorites. It just screamed "We're based in Northern Virginia". Very buttoned-down and corporate.

But I'd have to say Air France has just about the most boring livery in the air.

One defunct livery I really miss is Eastwind. The airline itself was a joke but the planes looked fabulous.

Although not a current livery WN 's tan scheme IMO is unsightly

Out of current schemes I think JL 's new scheme is very boring and unimagative without the use of the crane which they had for years prior to the introduction of this livery.

I never cared for FL's original livery (pre-J7 merger). It looked a little too busy on such a small aircraft.

That scheme on its mainline T-tails (727, MD-80) looked absolutely hideous.

Thankfully, DL's MD-90 was spared of this scheme; they went right from the widget scheme (personal favorite among DL schemes) to the current scheme.

My least favorite of all time is this, one of two ONA Bicentennial theme jets - the Confederate flag? What were they thinking? Were they thinking?

I think you should have some classes on how to use a search engine...

I think this is the 3rd thread in its kind in the last 3 months

but to answer your question....two liveries come to my mind SWISS and AIR INDIA .........UGLY MC FUGLY
