I wish I could like it, seeing as it is KLM, but I don't like the orange transitioning to blue thing. But I know others like it.

As the video has already been posted, here are infos and pictures from KLM:





The orange livery has been completed by a team of 35 people for four days. 335 litres of paint were used to spray the aircraft orange fading into KLM's distinctive blue. The transition between the two colors features aspects of the Dutch flag. The combination emphasizes KLM's Dutch roots and pride in the national color of the Netherlands.





KLM will deploy the orange Boeing 777 on routine flights within the network and, whenever possible, during events that offer opportunities to promote the Netherlands. The aircraft will debut this summer and will be in operation on the Rio de Janeiro-Amsterdam route during the Olympic Games. On August 22, KLM will use its orange Boeing to operate the "Medal Flight" that brings the Dutch Olympic heroes home.



KLM's 777-300 has a completely revamped interior, with full-flat seats in World Business Class and more legroom in Economy Class, ensuring greater comfort for passengers. In addition, the inflight entertainment system has been fully renewed and adapted throughout the cabin. By the end of this year, KLM will have replaced more than 80% of its intercontinental aircraft cabin interiors.

This new livery by KLM is so wrong on many levels the way I see it... why paint it in two completely different colors, orange & delft blue don't look good together at all... you either paint it all orange or all blue but don't mix the two for heaven's sake!!!

I understand they want to support the Dutch royal family & King's day but paint one aircraft all orange and that would make it really stand out from all the other blue aircaft in the KLM fleet, that would make it truly special indeed...

My sentiments exactly. The two colors don't look good together at all.

I like the Netherlands colours pinstripe cheatline. I agree though, the whole jet painted orange would have looked better.

Excuse me for my confusion, but is this supposed to be a special livery or is this a whole new livery for the entire fleet?

I thought KLM just revamped their livery with the blue portions ducking under the nose of each aircraft. Or was this never meant to be a long-term change?

It's a special livery in celebration of King's Day in Amsterdam.

I'm not one to like special liveries, but this one is slowly growing on me. I agree though, an all Oranje KLM 77W would have looked stunning! I do hope that PHX takes a stab at this in 1:400.

Looks like I'm not the only one thinking it should have been all orange. As someone stated, orange and blue don't go together very well.

Or maybe a blue orange ?...

Orange and blue are complimentary colors, and as such, they usually look good together. But this does NOT look good.
Should have just done all orange.

Dreadful. As has been said, all orange or nothing, and I'm not sure that would really work either. Still, horses for courses I guess.

That's a bit queer looking and they might have considered going with the old stripe livery.
