I know it's a retro livery; but it feels very outdated in 2022. Not a fan

I think it looks great. Always wondered what this livery would look like on a 73 longer than a 700

Yes it does! Hopefully they'll also paint the flap fairings red like the old days.

Love that they did a heritage retro livery.
The rear of the Max looks a little strange, almost A319ish or like a shrunken 757. I still like the 737 Classics rear tailcone/APU design.

You can see all of the different variations of the 737 APU's here:

Thank you!! While still daylight I tried to make it before the sunlight went behind a hill casting a shadow over this airplane, but when I got there after an hour driving and delayed by traffic, the plane was already in the shadow. So I decided to wait there until after sunset so that the airport lights would come on lighting the plane nicely as the evening sky grew darker and cirrus clouds turned pink; I'm glad I waited!

Thanks for the comments everyone (don't want to clutter the comment section by replying to everyone separately). Opinions vary on this livery; I like this livery since it brings back a distinctive livery I grew up with - you could always tell a SWA plane miles away from the red belly, and I'm a fan of distinctive, bold liveries.
