PIA to get a new colour scheme with delivery of B777LR

Post by pkjet »

I have just read an email in our office that PIA is looking to adopt a brand new smart and modern livery with the delivery of the new B777-200LR aircrafts in December/January.

I never did warm to the current Boeing designed livery. What a mess.
As I stand outside the aircraft each day, I have no feeling for this scheme and the previous green is visible in the tailfins of the 747-300 aircraft.

Here's to the return of the green in a unique and eye catching way.
You can't be all things to all people...so just be nice !

I've heard there will be change in the tail design after the induction of B772LR (most probably) as it is disliked by most of the people. What are your opinions for the tail?
Lets see what acctually comes after there deleivery.

i met this guy at the airport taking pics today.....n i was surprised to hear from him....as he was originaly somewhere from europe that the early 80s theme the golden one ... was his favorite out of all the airlines he had seen around the world, he loved the PIA golden one....no wonder that theme was a legend..........

Hahaha, it sounds funny. :lol: Anyway I really don't like the new livery either, Hopefully Tariq will put a new livery that incorporates the green tail. I miss it. :cry:

Definetly Saad, the 80s livery was one of the best liveries PIA came out with. I think Negus and Negus designed the 80s and 90s livery, both which suited the airline for many decades.... :wink:

Really anxious to see what the B772LR will look like in two months time.....

I personally wouldn't mind seeing a total change in the livery.
It would be nice to incorporate a good bit of green into the livery!

guys i really think the new livery is ok ,not that i dont want a change in the tail flag area,..i mean it has grown on me with time, at firs ti didnt like the flag aswell but now ive made my peace with it and i kind of like the new unifroms aswell,
sure the livery is minimalistic but it is very newage, some other major carriers like Air newzealand and ELAL are sporting very very similar designs aswell i guess it is graceful.

The green/gold livery was beautiful granted, as were some of their previous ones as well, but I think its finally time to move on from the 'PIA' on the tail scheme. PIA has been on the tails of all its a/c since incorporation, it is now time for a change. It has moved to the fuselage, now all thats left is to revise the design on the tail.
