Yes, the new Cathay Pacific has officially been launched.



But how does that when compared to the previous livery?



Or even the classic one?

I was expecting their beautiful logo to play a bigger role in the airline livery look at British Airways

all they did is put 1 at the back and 1 in the front

I was also hoping for a curvy design similar to Vietnam Airlines and KLM's new livery or a more creative one like Etihad's.
I have to agree

Cathay could have added a dark band on the body and make it curve

The new livery is just too bland-looking.

Really disappointed with the new livery.

A missed opportunity I must say!

I was wondering, if they put a bit of red stripe on the new livery that might spice things up.
Rather having had to put up with gloomy looking livery.

The livery itself is fine, but it doesn't suite CX. When I see this livery, I want to sleep.

It could be Ok for a leisure carrier or for Nordic airlines, but it doesn't align with the status of the flag carrier of one of the most vibrant Asian city.

That's the main key point that the new branding designer seemed to overlook: vibrant.
The new livery looks very gloomy.

Yep, that's my point. The new livery is not vibrant.

I agree if the 1994 livery began to look outdated. In fact it has strong 1990s feel. But this new livery just doesn't match with the image of Hong Kong.

All CX had to do is follow UA, KL, VN as an example & apply similar lines. I'm not a fan of this revised scheme but in saying that I'm pretty sure it'll grow on me eventually.

I excepted so much of this livery as it's been a year now since they unveiled the branding refresh. I thought that they were working on something grand, something very researched, that is why they waited so long to unveil it. I thought it will be something warm, in line with the new design philosophy of their lounges. Alas, what they did is the exact opposite of that.

I hope the management is scratching their head reading all the negative comments all over the web.

I'm with you 100% Hope the negative response will have management reverse their decisions.

Another example of how it's done!

It seemed that the Cathay Pacifics new livery is poorly received.

I know, I was only saying that in that forum they like the livery. I dont know if its because of the diferent culture, but for example I see it elegant and it show me the image of a serious airline (thats what I personally think)
