Unfortunately they took the worst CSA livery possible.

Completely agree about the worst livery for CSA bit. I don't know why CSA thought this would be an improvement on their last livery?? I'm not even sure of the significance of the tail design.

Looks like the "Guitar Pic" livery! On the vertical stab, looks like a guitar pic striking a guitar string!

They always start with the worst liveries. That is part of the marketing for the models.

That was exactly what I thought of when I first saw this poor livery!

I was going to put that before, but I didn't know the name of the plastic thing they use to strike the guitar with.

I love the A310, loathe that livery. Would look good in a retro livery based on their 1960s/70s design.

Nothing wrong with the livery, its the plane.

Older airframes do not look good when an airline tries to update the look in an attempt to make them look modern and up to date.
I have an atr42 that looks just fine in the late livery.
But on an older airframe eg A310, I agree the previus scheme would be more popular.

So true and well said! Bring back some cheatlines. Hey, clothes eventually come back into style so why not liveries!

Luftymatt......I used the US redneck down south spelling for the guitar pick! I live in the land of pickin and a grinnin and rebel flags! Glad I could help with that one...great minds or twisted ones think alike!
