Default Air New Zealand has a new "all black" Design

Taken from Air New Zealand reveals new design | Stuff.co.nz

"
The skies are set to turn black after Air New Zealand revealed its new design for the first aircraft in its new domestic jet fleet.
The new all black design was unveiled in Sydney today by Air New Zealand CEO Rob Fyfe, in "recognition of the airline’s long time support of the nation’s favourite game".
Fyfe said: "In celebration of Air New Zealand’s long running support of rugby in New Zealand, our first new A320 will arrive in January sporting a sleek black livery complete with silver fern motif and Koru on its tail."
Air New Zealand would have sponsored the New Zealand Rugby Football union, including the All Blacks, for 17 years next year.
The first aircraft will be the only one in the fleet featuring the new all black livery.
"Air New Zealand is crazy about rugby and from February this distinctive new plane will be operating on our main domestic New Zealand routes, " said Fyfe.
"Who knows, some Australian sports teams might just find themselves on this aircraft as they fly around the country to get to their games over the coming months."
The new domestic fleet of A320 aircraft, combined with Air New Zealand’s new long-haul fleet of Boeing 777-300 aircraft, will begin arriving from the end of this year
Air New Zealand also recently updated its award-winning "Bare Essentials" inflight safety video with an equally creative "Crazy About Rugby" version."


Here is an image.I personally am not a fan of it.

Is this a 'new livery' or just a few a/c will be painted in these colors to commemorate rugby?

I've never really thought a strong black livery would look good on any commercial plane, but when StarFlyer of Japan came up with it, it brought a refreshing level of visual pleasure for me, personally.

Starflyer Airlines - PSFK

But the way Air New Zealand did it is actually very exciting!

Id also like to add, It would be interesting to see the silver ferns stay for a livery revise after RWC is over.

Cool Re: Air New Zealand has a new "all black" Design

I will add this to my collection as I have a few 'all black' machines and IMHO they look quite snazzy. A nice change from 'Eurowhite'... I'd like to see more airlines 'in the black'.

Playboy DC-9, Etihad Formula 1 A320, Virgin Blue Gilette B738...
Will this Air New Zealand jet be one of the new winglet equipped A320s?

My flight simulator looks better...
I kind of can't take it seriously. It's alright.

Does the plane do a haka before it takes off?
