Answers to the ULTIMATE AIRLINE LIVERY CHALLENGE — How’d You Do?

Here are the liveries in their full glory!

Here are the liveries in their full glory!

Yesterday I gave you guys what I thought was the ULTIMATE LIVERY TEST. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting many (if any) people to get them all right. I have once again underestimated some of my readers.

I got a lot of great feedback from people on this (even from those that didn’t win) that this was a fun competition. I also got suggestions  to do it over the weekend next time, since it took so much time to guess these (while at work). Either way, you can expect some more of these in the future.

I thought the Caravelle would be the hardest, since it is an old plane, but the livery looks pretty new age. However I heard from a lot of people that the Unifly Express was the most challenging.

Here are the uber airline livery nerds who emailed me all the correct answers. They will be mailed some cool stuff from me and from the Future of Flight (@FutureofFlight — Thanks Sandy):
