The newest livery on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner belongs to Air India and their first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Found this fine photo (and there are a few others of this 787)Â on Jon Ostrower’s Flight Blogger website. Heck, this is a good time to take a look at all the current liveries seen on Boeing 787’s to date:

There are currently two JAL Boeing 787's also parked next to the Future of Flight.
This Boeing 787 has the ANA tail, but the rest is all white. People are guessing ANA might have a special livery planned.
This is ZA002 which has been in the news recently. It was the first in ANA livery, but there are quite a few now lined up at Paine Field.

Ah, good 'ol ZA001 in full Boeing livery -- probably my favorite.
More should be on their way soon. If you cannot wait until then, check out Boeing’s website where you can preview what different liveries will look like on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. So looking at the liveries in the real and those on Boeing’s website, which one is our favorite? Which one is your least favorite? Mine? Well I have to say that Boeing’s full liver is my favorite and man, it is not easy to pick a least favorite, hmm…
We have seen the new United livery on a Boeing 737, but now we can see it on the Boeing 747. Â You know what? The more I see this livery the more I get used to it and the more I like it. I especially like this photo since we are not use to seeing these old Continental colors on a Boeing 747. How about you? Are you liking this new combined livery more?
Update: This photo is in fact a photoshop. I apologize for posting it saying it was a real photo, I was fooled as well. But it still shows very closely what the new United livery will look like on the Boeing 747.
AirTran has been fighting hard to get into Milwaukee and they have strong competition. AirTran has quite a few other special liveries already, but this one is special, it is the first baseball livery for AirTran. Catch this Boeing 717 on AirTran’s network and go Brewers!
Germanwings Airbus A319 (D-AKNF) with Park Inn Hotels livery
I love special liveries. I am even ok when a livery advertises something to make the airline a little money. However, some liveries just go too far and I think this might be one of them.
First of all, it almost gives me a headache to read what the side of the plane says. Secondly, I just get confused looking at a head-on shot of the plane. Third…well I hate to admit it, but it does get my attention.
By looking at the livery you surely know it is advertising the Park Inn Hotels which love their nice colored boxes. But it might take a little more searching to find the airline flying this plane Â (hint: check the engines).
This is an Airbus A319 flying for the airline Germanwings. TheÂ airline is based out of Germany and is a low-frills airline.Â It has a fleet of about 25 Airbus A319’s and flies to just over 65 destinations.
This video gives a great inside look at the process of painting a plane in a special livery. As a big fan of airline livery, I always love seeing the special liveries that airlines come up with. I just with the industry had more!
