Default Malaysia Airlines A380 New livery - thoughts

Hello guys this livery looks kinda good even with the eurowhite. So much better then the current new livery on the 738s and 330s. Is this the actual new livery? Are they ditching red for blue?

If hogan makes this it would be nice, but most MH models are made by Risesoon/Skymarks. This would definitely be popular in 1:400 too if Phx makes them. What are your thoughts?

I actually like it. I much prefer the Malaysia Airlines title to the existing one. With rising fuel cost, don't expect the airliners put alot of colours on their planes.

I hope Phoenix/Gemini will make one of these, but I'm sure Phoenix will probably screw up with the colours, since there many different blues shades on the design. Remember Phoenix isn't very good with anything that is blue, green and yellow.



If you want more info, here from the Malaysia Airlines website.

Is that a special livery for only their first A380? Also that doesn't look like any A380 I've ever seen in the picture.

Its a pleasant look. Reminds me of those wavy lines/swooshes/graphics that are commonly found on GA aircraft. I do like it over the current livery, but overall, i miss the older livery.

I'm with superbou = Hisbiscus is truly the opposite of the 'bland' Eurowhite livery!! Which is great in my opinion. Cheers! T7

Wait a minute are you saying they're changing their livery yet again??? That other recently livery was an interim livery? I'm sorry but I can't bring myself to liking yet another livery with such lack of pigmentation.

Very sleek, but the front section is a little to bland. And where is the red? Last time I checked, Malaysia Airlines' Liveries have always been RED and BLUE!

Add some red, and some more colour to the front section an you're set!

But is this exclusively an A380 livery (if it was wouldn't it have some kind of A380 ad on it?), or is MH changing their livery yet again?

They better add those blue/gray waves to the fuselage or else this will end up neck to neck with JAL as the most unimaginative livery change ever.

the new livery is the blue at the rear and blue engines, i think the video was released a little early before the paint shop finished

From what im reading there international flights will be in the new blue livery and the domestic flights will be with 738s in the same livery but in red and will be given a different name.

Well no matter what the exterior, I do hope MH will continue to remain the same inside. They have the world's best cabin crew and MH is indeed Malaysian Hospitality!! Though their male cabin crew jackets could use a tweak!

i'm ok with airliners with eurowhite but this livery needs at least another colour maybe a dash of red or a different hue of blue....aircraft is just to massive for just a two tone paint job...although i like the use of the new fonts.....OFT since most asian countries got A380 on their fleet when will it be phillipines turn eh? i say bring back the MNL-ORD or MNL-JFK non-stop flights on a A380 ...just a thought

Hmmm, let's see... it's a white plane with a name painted on it.

For those who think this is exciting, you should go check out the emperor's new clothes!!! lol
