My all time favourite

The new one is not bad either but I prefer Landor livery.
Other favourites that deserve a mention:
-Singapore Airlines
-Cathay Pacific (old and new)


-Etihad
-Alitalia
-All Nippon Airways
-Swissair
-JAS
-Olympic

Worst


-Virgin Atlantic (the new one just released, what's wrong with the old one )
-Brussels Airlines
-TAP (prefered the old one)
-EgyptAir
-Air India experimental
glad they didn't keep these as the current one is a classic
-Aeroflot experimental

The special liveries are my favourite. An example is this Qantas plane in its special livery:

May be a bit biased here but (with the exception of Malaysia Airlines' special livery and Quantus, my clear favourite designs are on Virgin Atlantic and British Airways.


Virgin Atlantic



British Airways



British Airways old special livery

I like Cathay Pacific, Saudi Arabian, British, Virgin and Emirates.

American and United are depressing.

THAI INTERNATIONAL AIRWAY

FOR ME IS THAI (BEST)

THAI livery is classic and looks more modern

Airbus 340-500



Boeing 747-400

Air Canada's livery is very elegant, very classy.



The old one also ordered some respect imo:



Canadian Airlines had another very distinctively Canadian livery:

I like Asiana's new livery:







Also Singapore and Emirates (both very classy) and old Air Canada (all time fav although the new one is good as well) EDIT: And also China Airlines. Love the tail.

Dislike:

Delta, Southwest, Cathay (just something about it)

^ yeah, Asiana has got a stunning new tail design. Bold & colourful. Love Thai too.

Dislike: the new NorthWest, Delta & United

Need serious updates: American (OMG), Alitalia, Iberia, India, Singapore. Just get rid of the unfashionable, drab horizontal stripes!

Beauty depends on the eye of beholder. Classic one and out-of-date one maybe the same thing.

IMO, my All time favorite: All white British's Concorde (Only Concorde)
The mistresses are New AirCanada, New THAI.

All time classics: Qantas,SQ,AF

I'd like to see more more more special liveries. I just love that!!!

Those new Asiana's FA....oops sorry.. new livery is very attractive.
