Oh boy, Nok Air livery is great, I like the yellow beak and the feathers under fuselage, very colourful paint scheme. Looks a bit  like Super Chicken or even Ozzie Ostrich.

I have no issues with the current livery and indeed the gold and blue reminds me of BCAL a good few years back. Inevitably SQ will come up with a new livery in due course, probably with a large element of white paint in it, but for the time being, the current branding is well recognised.

Well I've often heard Business associates describe the service on SQ as 'Consistent', so is that old livery, I just think the world moved on from Go Faster Stripes at the end of the millenium. Chic, Retro, Nostalgic, I dont think so, just plain old stale, tired and boring in my opinion.

Does anyone remember any of the old 727's that Australian Airlines completely repainted in holiday destination themes, they were amazing, so ahead of their time, the average conservative Sunday Suited passenger thought the entire aircraft had been grafitied. They certainly had moved on from TAA days and government control with the tired old 'Go Fast Stripes' through the window look.  Complimenting Ansett would have to go to that amazing burnt orange look, it was bold and  totaly modern.

I quite liked the last couple of versions of the TAA livery, as well as the original Australian Airlines scheme. For their time they were quite appropriate and even bold.

You are making a major mistake by confusing choice of liveries with government control.of the airline. The 727s painted in holiday destination themes dated back to 1979, as shown in this TAA museum web page. TAA/Australian Airlines was sold to Qantas in 1992, and Qantas itself was privatised in 1993.

The current Qantas red-tail, white-kangaroo livery essentially dates from 1984, when the airline was government owned, with a minor tweak in 2007. I don't see any problem with it, either.

The you for that correction. Well, they were certainly ahead of their time.

I was in Auckland and Wellington in November and saw many of these, they are striking, almost sinister at first appearance, it grows on you though. It's a good business statement.

AirNZ's 'all black' livery on their 787 and some a320's has to be the best!

Could you just imagine some junior in the Airline having 'Go Fast Stripes' put through the windows of that masterpiece of a livery. It's almost beyond sinister and perfection. Any airline doing those colors is very brave, especially from the old Teal colours that dated back to Tasman Empire Airways Ltd.
