Your favorite Real-World Airline livery
« on: October 09, 2010, 09:46:57 AM »
I know myself that two stand out for me as having been the best I've seen.
Ansett Australia's Sydney Olympic special livery and Australian Airlines standard livery.
Shame that both of these airlines no longer exist...
I feel sorry for those that have grown up only knowing the trash that is low-cost airlines.

There are many that I like. I like the simple and clean ones, for example Emirates, Air France and Delta.

Although my top 3 are as follows..

1) Oman Air

2) Etihad Airways

3) Singapore Airlines (with larger logo text and 'clean' tail).

American Airlines - This livery is timeless!

Gulf Air - This one is in special colors but I like their regular livery as well.

I like Air China's special color schemes but find their regular colors dull.

I love AA's iconic livery. :) My favorite would have to be on their 757s with winglets:

I have also always really liked Malmö Aviation's livery:

Cathay Pacific's livery is one of my favorites too:

And while MH's livery isn't my favorite, one of their special liveries is:

I've always liked AA's livery.  I wish more airlines did the shiny metal look - http://www.airliners.net/photo/American-Airlines/Boeing-777-223-ER/1784126/&sid=9f484e0657182268d209491522f2f293

I also like AirTran's cursive A logo, and their current livery - http://www.airliners.net/photo/AirTran/Boeing-737-76N/1684101/&sid=0d7b0f0cc4939b0132c4dbfce0cfa221

I really liked the final NWA livery too - http://www.airliners.net/photo/Northwest-Airlines/Boeing-747-451/1751755/&sid=1aaa465624d2e1f5a23f2611b58feee1

I like Frontier's livery too - http://www.airliners.net/photo/Frontier-Airlines/Airbus-A319-111/1775390/&sid=27881474d2fc4479bd8c9c9af7dde78d\

And finally, Sun Country - http://www.airliners.net/photo/Sun-Country-Airlines/Boeing-737-7Q8/1783497/&sid=af13896d98dd035894348aa08a42dce8

Heh, the liveries I actually see when I go to my local airport seem to get just a slight edge over ones I just see in pictures.

I just realized how similar their livery is with Continental's...

You mean Continited?

Ugh don't get me started on that.  I've never been particularly fond of Continental's current livery, but for some reason it looks really stupid to me with the United name on it. 

I can't understand why you would keep the United name but not the tulip logo.  They should have just blended in the bronze color from the Continental globe or something.  Only thing I can think of is that maybe Continental's customers don't like United, and they're afraid that if the Continental brand completely vanished that they might jump ship for AA or Delta?

1. My number one beauty from the Aegean Region: IZair (Izmir Hava Yollari)
Quote
The blue of Izmir’s summer sky and the orange of its sunset. Where the blue meets the orange, an olive green color appears, hinting to the famous olive trees decorating the Aegean region.

2. From the mystical Egypt, the land of the pharaos: Egyptair

3. The national airline of the country my parents came from, simple but lovely: Turkish Airlines

I actually liked the livery of our flag carrier "SABENA" back in the days... 

1) Nineties livery:




2) Last livery before bankruptcy:





Damn, I still miss SABENA though her memory lives through into Brussels Airlines...
