It`s the Flying Soviet Banana! A lot more colourful than their previous livery for sure.

I'd sincerely rather it all be white. The colours are dreadful, the logo is pathetic, and the positioning of the different wordings on the fuselage are random. Also the flag at the front of the plane is barely recognizable.

Imagine it on the A380 ! It might take some getting used to, but looks like Big Bird matched up with the Big Blue...Chicken Kiev, (a.k.a Chicken a la Kiev) anyone?

As everyone pointed out most airlines are opting for at 95 percent white on all their aircraft. Maybe it's subtle racism. But finally, a NEW livery with some color. Nice job!

Definitely not the best livery, but still a lot nicer then their previous livery. I noticed the design looks a lot like Windrose Aviation and Dniprovia, two other Ukrainian airlines.

It sure beats this:


I like this banana livery. IMO Solid colours look better on the 767 than just white with some areas of colour, unless of course there is a coloured belly or a cheatline. I noticed that the blue section on the engines, fuselage and tail, make a smaller aircraft outline. Look closely, it looks like a 777 . I can't wait to see one at YYZ!

Not racism, but not-so-subtle cheapness. Paint jobs are expensive.

Cool stuff! Never seen anything like that before, and like many others said beats a plain old white livery any day. Kudos to Aerosvit! Fantastic livery!
