>>1316880I miss their chrome livery so much.
>>1316885Same here, famalam. New scheme is gay. If anything, they should have went back to the original livery.
>>1316915They had to change it because of the 787, but even then they'd probably be better off replacing the chrome parts with white.

>>1317387What gate was that taken at? K19?
>>1317387ORD used to be top tier comfy when there were more types of planes going through. Now all it's all just Arab-buses and MAX abominations
Old one at AMS
>>1316915All these boring eurowhite and light grey liveries seems ass backwards from a marketing standpoint.
>>1317572K12, when AA used to base the 777s
>>1319832youd think they would want their planes and logos to be unique but recognizable, with unique color scenes and simplistic different logos. the airlines paint scheme is at the forefront of an airlines marketing and they dont do anything with them.
>>1319832oddly its LCC's who seem to really go all out with fun colour schemes. next time VH-VGF is in WLG I'll snap a photo of it for this thread, but I dont wanna waste precious image posts on non-thread related content showing it now.
>>1319832Everyone is doing it. Aer Lingus had a great scheme until they came in this January and introduced the stupid fucking "eurowhite" bullshit.
>>1316968That would make sense being a composite and all. Still, they should have at least left the pre-787 models in the polished aluminium, but with the new tail logo and large script on the side.
>>1320781i guess airlines are just dumb. a lot of problems airlines face are self imposed problems (JAL and UA being prime examples)
>>1320783what makes no sense to me is the logo change. the AA was instantly recognizable and easily gotten into memory, while also being very simplistic. same with UA's tulip. they hit all the checkmarks of a good logo design, but they ditched them for complex and forgettable messes of design. the first time i saw AA's new logo i thought it was made by the post office (and i still think USPS could win a lawsuit over it) and the new united logo reminds me of continental, and we all know how much of a cluster fuck they were towards the latter 15 years of their existence.
>>1320790Yeah I was pretty pissed at the logo change, too. Growing up in DFW really cemented the love of AA and Southwest. > and we all know how much of a cluster fuck they were towards the latter 15 years of their existence.Why do you say that? I used Continental for the first 8 of those 15 last years when I lived in Houston and I always thought they were fine. I was actually pissed to learn that United's management team was the one to take the reins in the merger and the fact that the United name lived on and not Continental's.
>>1320814i guess we had different experiences. everyone i talked to said they were mediocre at best, plus a friend of mine knew a lot about the internals of continental and they said it was a shitshow for the employees. but thats off topic.
>>1320790The United logo looks almost the same as the Copa logo.
>>1320898Exactly. It's a mess.
>>1320775sure enough look who decided to pay WLG a visit tonight...
>>1321933I'm still amazed that AA sends the 777 from Miami to Milan
>>1320814there was another entry in the early stages of choosing the design which i was pretty certain they were gonna go with. it kept the logo but modernized the livery in a pretty good way imho. just a few changes and it would have been perfect. then they went with the livery we have now and i have no clue as to why.
>>1322155Do you have a concept drawing/rendering? Sounds like they fucked up!
>>1323637WOO, FREE MONEY NOW! Thank you noscript!
>>1323636this is the one. while not perfect, the general consensus ive seen is that it was better than what we got.
>>1323873Oh wow they really, really fucked up by not selecting this scheme. That's classy as fuck.
>>1323880>classylooks like a generic third world flag carrier
>>1323888and thats different than what we got how?
>>1323873they kept the spirit of the classic AA logo and that's good enough for me
>>1323939it would be perfect if they kept the head and the talons on it.
WAWAlso LOTs leased A340-300
>>1319324What routes do they use those on?
>>1327710They used them on YVR ,YUL and DEL ... may they also did LIM, they sadly retired them a few years ago.
BA 747-400 at MIA.Also do any MIA anons know if there is another passenger 747 operator at MIA? Because I think after 2021 or 2024 when BA either makes the switch or retires the entire fleet I dont think MIA will ever see a 747 on the regular again outside of cargo
>>1328869Lufthansa could maybe use their 747-8's in some seasonal capacity there. Cathay, Air China and Korean will certainly never will.
>>1328869god i dont even want to think about that. it hurt a lot when my airport lost its 747 services.
The best livery to ever grace the sides of a B747 is pic related.
>>1329408for me its TWA's final livery. with AA as a close second.
>>1328986i still hold out some hope that one day, an american carrier will put passenger 747s back into US service.
>>1329496O LAWD IS DAT SUM CF-6?
On the subject of 747s, from ATL last month
seattle tacoma intl
Pyongyang Sunan International AirportThere isn't many flights...
>>1316968they should just redesign it around plain carbonalthough carbon doesn't look great from a distance
>>1329961cant imagine why.
>>1329501There's just no more routes that don't need to avoid ETOPS anymore. You won't see it except for cargo.
>>1329961or planes ..
>>1330046slot restricted airports still give jumbos a small niche, but its unclear if that will last.
Saw this beauty yesterday @ ORD Terminal M8.Only 12 exist and KLM is phasing out their 747-400's.
>>1332520Nice, I got to see one of her sisters at LAX last summer.
>>1332520a damn shame, KLM's 747s have always looked amazing.
