South African Airways have the best-looking livery in my opinion. Worst? Dunno, probably Southwest.

Nationwide, recently bankrupt, but being bought within months and hopefully salvaged...

BEST


Obviously, Asiana.


I really don't understand why not so many people notice this very elegant livery. El Al's livery is simply pretty and beautiful, so sleek and classy.


I don't like green that much but Cathay's livery influenced me to just love the color. The brush stroke tail is great!


Air France. A good livery doesn't mean it has a lot of colors and too much of attractions. For me, this livery just proves simplicity is beautiful.

Runners-Up:
Qantas
Singapore Airlines
Aeroflot


WORST


I must say, they deserve the recognition for the effort of painting the whole aircraft with colors. But this is the worst, and the most over-rated livery ever.

Runners-Up:
Southwest
Ryanair
Northwest (pre-2003)

BEST: No question for me, Avianca



Other nice ones are on MAS, Asiana & Jet Blue are nice

WORST: I HATE the stupid Maharajah-ish windows Air India puts on its planes, wretched.



The North Korean one is pretty bad, hooters was one of the worst, too

Best

British Airways (oozes class)
KLM (stands out and has class at the same time)
Emirates
Virgin Atlantic
Cathay Pacific
Iberia
Easyjet (not everyones cup of tea but their colours are very unique and their planes are easy to spot from the ground)
Aer Lingus
BMI
Flybe
Jet2

Worst

South West
American Airlines
Air France (that tail wing looks like some cheap seventies throw back and the rest of the plane looks like it's still waiting to go to the paint shop)
Alitalia
