Name A Favo(u)rite European Airline Livery...

Wed Oct 22, 2008 6:27 pm

Hi,

Was driving to Heathrow today and I saw on finals a TAP Portugal plane which just kinda caught my eye and I was thinking just generally that I liked the livery. Luckily I think in Europe (and in the World) there are lots of nice liveries but was thinking to ask (I know it's pretty much impossible just one) to name maybe one favo(u)rite European airline livery (and maybe why). (For me it was TAP today because I just think it looks nice/represents the airline nicely).

I know there is another topic similar at the moment so apologies in advance/please delete if too similar etc.

Any replies etc. welcome,

Many thanks,

Pierre.

I personally like FI a lot, also I like the black radome on the Malev 737's!

I also agree with that one, in my opinion FI takes the cake for beautiful aircraft. A 757 in that livery is like a delicious cake as opposed to the bag of drugs:

I really like TAP to, think they have got the eye catching part right! Love it!

I also like United Airlines livery – it’s really nice.

Best livery of all time has to be Britannia Airways & Monarch Airlines, both of them have CLASSIC charter about them, stand out and well, are just proper liveries!

Even in days gone past.

P.S. Does anyone know why there is a UA 727-200 at LHR in the bottom right picture?

BA hands down. Their 744's & T7's are just beautiful.

Of course, BA "classic" livery was probably the best they've ever had :

Big fan of two-tone color schemes. And I like them where only one tone is white or grey and the other tone is something contrasting like blue, red, etc.

Other classy ones include:

BD...

Everything else they do is questionable at best, but at least they know how to paint (most of) their planes nicely!

I would say KLM. Their livery change took a little to get used to, but in hindsight it was a smart choice. They modernized the cheatline into a simpler two tone livery that made it more modern and refreshing.

Afterall you just have to love that blue.

Yeah. I like BD's livery too. I'm not sure why but I like the blue. I especially like the BD livery on A330s.

I agree, they both look awesome.

I liked them too ever since a TAP A340 came over my school the other day. The green looks cool.

I have to say AZ.

MyAir is a bit on the wild side, but hey.

(Does anyone here actually like the Wizzair livery btw?)
