Worst Liveries?

Sun Jul 16, 2017 7:24 pm

I'm sure this isn't the first thread of this, but thought it might be an interesting discussion.

I'm going to have to say Philippines. Thing looks like it was designed in Microsoft Word.

Nope. Worst, probably of all times and all places easily goes to Southwest. Can ANYONE find any redeeming qualities? Okay, it isn't Eurowhite, so thats one. Anything? Anyone?

The PR livery is actually one of my favorites. I love the tail. But wouldn't mind them getting a new scheme. With the Philippines having so many beaches and all, they could mimic some of the other airlines in the Pacific with so much color. Air Tahiti Nui, Hawaiian, Aircalin, etc. come to mind.

There are other bad liveries out there especially with what they had previously.

China Eastern
LATAM
Avianca
Iberia

I'm undecided on Cathay Pacific and JAL. I'm not sure if I like them or not especially with what they had before.

Agreed on PR, it's one of the eurowhite liveries I do like. CX's new livery looks unfinished, and it doesn't fit all of the planes in the fleet. NK's yellow livery is heinous.

Not just unfinished, but a lot of things don't seem to be in the right place or are just redundant. First the grey stripe. While I like it, it seems redundant since nothing is filling that space. Either you move the titles down, or move the stripe up. Next, the brushwing by the nose. Once again, you move the titles down, or you move the brushwing up on the title's level. It kinda looks in an odd place. Speaking of the brushwing, you have a solid green tail with a white brushwing while the other two brushwings are solid green. There is no cohesion. Unless it's an Airbus or a 744F, it just doesn't look right. At lest they could have done is make the brushwing by the nose white but outline it in green.

A truly missed opportunity for a once great airline.

I personally think that CX should have just updated the titles, a la China Airlines and called it good. The livery wasn't broken.

They should've just used the money to improve the product and service. :duck:

I'll add Egyptair and Malaysian too. Blue doesn't really fit well with Egypt and with Malaysian, they really need consistency!

maortega15, we're on the same wavelength when it comes to liveries. The new MH livery release last week I believe is the best one, and should be released fleet wide.

Today, I'd agree with you. However, you got to see it in the face of time and in those days it was a very acceptable design. Of course by now it would be highly outdated, that's why it was replaced.

Nothing wrong with the current new Southwest livery.

What's really up for replacement is anything with a cheatline. Yes, there are still airlines that have cheatlines! Meridiana for example. But then, Alitalia also has only just begun to remove the cheatline from their livery so I guess Italians don't give too much about it.

Agreed regarding Spirit--simply hideous.
China Eastern looks unprofessional.

That's the same issue I have with PR. Looks unprofessional.

In addition I've gotta say EVA air's Hello Kitty theme. I get it's a part of their culture and whatnot but it seems like something that doesn't belong on an airplane.

Now the worst livery out there has got to be Continited, er I mean, United piss poor attempt. It screams 90s to me and that freaking Deathstar/Globe needs to go.
