I think the black one looks alright but the other one is not as nice.

Its actually quite funny how this livery change has upset me. I hate it with a passion as you can tell. Why not paint each aircraft slightly different, one a southern alps scene, another with lake taupo, one of a NZ forest scene. Really show New Zealand off rather than say "look we like rugby so much we turned our aircraft into a giant sports billboard" grrrr Air New Zealand, just grrrrrrrr

Well I'm going to disagree with you all and say congrats to Air New Zealand on what I think is a fantastic livery! Cannot wait to add the Black livery 787 to my collection!

I didn't like it at first, but it's growing on me. I prefer the white one just because the All Blacks liverys are special and should be left to a select few. However the fern is a bit tacky, again I prefer the All Blacks fern, this one's too curvy! Going to miss the teal though!

The fern used is the same as the one used by Tourism NZ. The new livery is at least an improvement on those bare white fuselages after the pacific wave was removed.

At last! An airline livery that is ACTUALLY A LIVERY, and not just plain white with a tail logo! Congratulations ANZ, I think it looks very good indeed and I look forward to seeing it on their whole fleet!

IMO looks like a couple of cheap designs.
They should have continued with the current fern on the black rugby planes which is more like real silver fern logo.

I view the silver fern not only as the symbol of New Zealand rugby and the All Blacks but also as a general symbol relating to New Zealand. So for me, I think the livery is great!

We all complain when an airline introduces a new livery that's 'too white', 'too plain' etc...now when ANZ comes up with a really imaginative livery...we complain too! are we EVER satisfied??

Nope.

Personally, I'm not impressed with these liveries. Perhaps a wee-bit more design in them than the previous, but I do think it is a mistake to take that teal colour out. Frankly, I liked the 'Pacific wave' livery best.

Say what you want, but I don't think we've seen a dark colored (mainline) livery like this since Braniff!

The current silver fern used is trademarked to the All Blacks and is only being used on a few aircraft with the permission (large payment!) of the NZ Rugby Union.
That said I prefer it too. Pity Air NZ can't have it for their own.

Thanks for sharing the info, otherwise, I'd never know unless it popped up on Yahoo or something months later... I look forward to seeing an "All Black" 787, which i think looks great!

I am glad that the Koru was not altered in any way and the use of the fern looks great, definitely sets it apart from the rest.
