Here we have the third installment of showing off the beautiful Boeing 787 Dreamliner liveries that have been seen at Paine Field and around the world. There have now been 22 different liveries on 15 different airlines and one aircraft manufacture (Boeing). Last update was from August 2012 and we have seen quite a few new ones since then.

Let me know in the comments: which 787 livery is your favorite? Your least favorite?

Least favorite is the COdbaUA globe livery.

my favourite are Ethiopian and Norwegian, the ones that are different from the now standard blue tail/white body.

least favourite is United. That beige (?) belly is too awkward to be deemed any good.

Norwegian rocks it. It’s a really good looking plane in anyone’s colors, pretty cool

Sebastian

LAN, is the better one, the tail is awesome

Kris Ziel

I think the Air India livery looks great and regal. and China southern and royal air maroc can definitely get some enhancements. somehow. somewhere.

Shabeer Hoosen

Best livery belongs to LAN, no doubt, tail section looks really smart. Air Morocco needs to brighten up it’s look.

I must admit, I have to say hainan is my favorite to date, as for my least favorite, it’s a toss up between air india and RAM….

It’s hard for any airline’s livery not to look good on a 787…

I really like Norwegian Air. Does any one have a full body shot?

Is the bend wing tip optional? I note that some have it and some
do not. Those engine nacelles are really something. A long way
from the PBY of the 30’3 and 40’s
