Perhaps the thread starter would like to start?  Wink

Anyway, my contribution, although, not the ugliest, but one of the blandest would be WS.

Aer Lingus had this livery on a number of their 737s when they transformed into a low cost airline. It signalled the birth of the "red dot" which can still be seen on most of the fleet in the form of the website logo however it hasn't been painted on any aircraft delivered this year. This livery was just to promote the airlines website and was not designed to replace the well known green of Aer Lingus which was thought at the time.

Having seen it in person on several occasions, twice @ ATL and once @ LAS, it's not that bad of a livery. The "S" on the tail is the worst part. It looks like a rejected sports team logo.

Quoting LHboyatDTW (Reply 27):

Actually, the fuel savings are pretty much offset by the extra TLC a bare metal livery requires.
