KL-BD 11-14
SU-OS 11-14

SA-ET 21-4
KQ-G0 13-12

DL-US-AA 10-9-6
NW-LA 17-8

VN-JL 16-9
CX-TG 13-12


Ok, here are the results after another few days' worth of voting, but the contest is not over, so keep voting. Voting closes in about 3 days' time... There are about 76 hours left... So help your favorite livery through to the final.

As a synopsis:
Africa: SAA has virtually secured its stop in the African final, while G0 and KQ are still close to one another in the standings.
Americas: NW has a considerable lead over LAN Airlines in Americas 2, while DL and US are heading Americas 1, with AA being separated from the final by 4 votes.
Europe: BD and OS each have a 3 vote lead over KL and SU respectively, so all four are still in contention for a place in the final.
Asia: 1 vote separates CX and TG, while VN has a comforting lead of 7 votes over JAL.

Nice contest. Next time try to compare liveries on equal aircraft. The SA livery looks so much better on an A340 than on a 737. I know not every airline has the same aircraft, however it should make it a more reliable competition.

Okay, what is with everyone's obsession with KLM. The livery is nice, but I dont think it is the best in Europe. Its boring in a sense. Two shades of blue and then white. WWOOOOWW..... its so never been done before.

Maybe it's the simplicity that makes the livery so nice. It has proven to be timeless, especially the crown logo. KLM just changed their livery on a few details and this little change made it even better IMO. KLM does have the tendency to focus too much on the blue in their cabin interiors, though. I wouldn't use light blue walls or seats....

The shades of KLM blue represent the skies and compared to TUI or Korean I think the KLM livery is far better. BMI does have a very nice livery, although it's not timeless and quite overdone. The livery looks stunning on their A330, but takes away all what's left over of the aerodynamic of the A320 series.

I just hope KLM keeps their fleet nice and shiny.
