Do not worry, the cute animals are not going away! But Frontier has updated their livery to promote their website versus just the silver “Frontier” titles seen previously on the aircraft. The first animal to see the new livery is Mickey the Moose, who was previously on a Q400 and Boeing 737 before being brought out of retirement to be on this Airbus A319.
“Changing our livery provided us an opportunity to promote FlyFrontier.com,” Frontier spokesperson explained to AirlineReporter.com. “We won’t change the rest of our fleet all at once, but when we add aircraft to our fleet or older aircraft need to be painted, we’ll add the FlyFrontier.com to those aircraft as well.” Continue reading Frontier Airlines Updates their Livery
The sky is the limit when designing your own 747-8I. Design by Toby Rao, Image from Boeing.
When going to buy a Boeing 747-8 Intercontiental, one of the most difficult decisions is choosing the outside design. Well, have no fear, help is here (and also a huge time waster). Boeing now offers AvGeeks the ability to design your own 7478I livery.
Even when you get bored making your own liveries, be sure to check out the few hundred that have already been made. Some are actually really good and others are, well… have opportunity for improvement (any of the ones we tried surely have TONS of room for improvement, so we are not ones to judge).
Interestingly enough, if you look at the first design in the gallery, it is an Air China 747-8I. The airline has five on order, which none have been delivered quite yet. Maybe this provides a nice preview for the airline?
Previously, users were also able to design their own Boeing 787 Dreamliner livery, but it looks like that page has been replaced with making the Intercontinetal. Good luck and have fun! If you can, be sure to share your results.
An awesome photo, closer up of British Airways 787 at Paine Field. Taken by moonm.
Three days this week, we have posted a photo post on a new livery on a 787 (An American Airlines 787 and a Norwegian Air 787 were posted earlier this week). Today we are highlighting British Airways first Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a sort of semi-livery. As in the tail is painted, but the fuselage is not.
We have seen this before and every other time, it has turned out to mean a special livery for the 787. Is British Airways planning the same? As of posting, no official word from the airline, but my guess is we will probably see something a bit different than their standard livery.

This has been a good month for BA and new aircraft types. Earlier, their first Airbus A380 rolled out of the paint hangar in Germany and now the 787 in Everett. Just too bad we do not know when the Dreamliner will be delivered to the airline.
Any guesses what this livery might entail? Or do you think it will just end up being the standard livery?
A big thanks to moonm and the Future of Flight for letting us use their photos.

Last week, the first 787 destined for Norwegian Air rolled out of the Boeing paint hangar up at Paine Field (KPAE).
Wonder if anyone has called Norwegian’s livery Rudolph.
For those of you who attended this year’s Aviation Geek Fest may remember seeing line 102 on the factory tour in its white protective coating.
Norwegian Air’s first 787 Dreamliner.
The most striking and noticeable feature about this scheme is the fully painted red nose/front third of the aircraft, which for me looks very different compared to all of the white front halves that we have seen on every other 787 at this point. It’ll take a little to get used to but definitely is nice to see something a little different.
The tail, like on all of the airline’s 737s, features an important historic person that means something for the country.
Sonja Henie was chosen to be on the airline’s first 787 Dreamliner.
Sonja Henie is featured on the tail of the first 787 and is a three time Olympic Champion and film star.

So far this is easily one of the sharpest looking 787 schemes and will be the easiest one to pick out of a line up.
Due to the current woes facing the Dreamliner, it is uncertain when Norwegian will be taking delivery of their first plane.

Mock up of Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner and 737-8 MAX in new American Livery. Image from American.
It will still be a while until we see American Airlines new livery on a real Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 737 MAX, but until then we can enjoy this computer mock up.
Is the new livery starting to grow on you yet?
