Default New Swiss 777 Livery (Ugly IMHO)

That's the new planned livery, I was mad because I got the Phoenix Swiss 77, but then I realized that the model will probably look better than the real thing in my opinion.

The Iberia (and tuberculosis) antidote/antibiotic ?
Does paint not cost in Switzerland these days ?

Just goes to show how fresh, satisfying, and [even] attractive the original SWISS International
with the all "Swiss-s" red boxes on the engines was !

Better yet,
large SWISS fuselage billboard titles, with the Swiss-s" and the red boxes with same on the engines should definitely have been attempted !

Are you sure this is a "new" livery? It looks more like promotional decals applied to the standard livery.

It is not decals, but only one Swiss 777 will get it

So it's still not a "new" livery. Just a promotional for their first 777.

Totally agree with you sir. That black and brown cheat line was elegant, classy and classic. Unfortunately with today's composite aircraft I doubt they would be able to pull it off quite as well as the accompanying polished metal belly is a thing of the past on composite aircraft.

I think the Swiss 777 promotional livery isn't too bad. It's very swiss. There definitely have been worse.

I dislike most promotional liveries including this one. (even though it looks fake) I agree with everybody that the boxes with Swiss written in different languages was attractive. I'm excited that the 777 will be used on the NYC--->Zurich route beginning in February! (see you then!)

I just hope that when a model is released it is not of this atrocity! Give us a standard livery please.

If Swiss is going with one promotional color, it should be painted grey instead of red.

Well you can rule PHX out then. They only seem to do special liveries.

Not necessarily. Remember that in 2013, PHX did release the regular livery Swiss 77W in two diff. Regs of which now apparently seemed to be correct now that the first Swiss just came out of final assembly the other day at KPAE. Flueggselmodell I think was the shop who commissioned these two models. Looking forward to a new release of these, but will not be buying this horrible special, livery for sure!

I remember the promotional photos of their MD-11 with the snowy mountains in the background.

Those were beautiful.
