I think you´ll get so many different responses as aircraft paints in the Library (thousands).
Here´s my top eight:
Aerolineas Argentinas (1970)
Cruzeiro do Sul (1970)
Oh you mean, current paints? None. Only Classics with a black nose. :)

I like the regional variations of the Southwest livery. I liked the silver out-of-the-box Northwest livery, too. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Northwest-Airlines/Airbus-A319-114/1665299/M/ The newest United livery will look good on the 787, I think. The new UPS livery looks a lot better than their trucks! I think they call them "package cars". http://www.airliners.net/photo/United-Parcel-Service/Boeing-757-24APF/1670623/M/ The white US Coast Guard ain't too shabby either, but it looks better from the front quarter. http://www.airliners.net/photo/USA---Coast/Lockheed-HC-130H-Hercules/1583239/M/ I am not so hot on the orange helo livery.

I'll second BA and American. BA's is simple yet elegant, but I think AA has the classiest livery around. Nothing can beat polished metal.
03-25-2010, 05:17 PM
American Airlines 707 (Astrojet) Baremetal any model
Branniff Airlines Flying colors
Qantas Nalanji and Wunala Dreaming
Malaysian Airlines "Hibiscus" liverie
Southwest Airlines "Orca" (don't like calling it Shamu)
Any Airline that has a different and colorful liverie.
03-25-2010, 05:30 PM

Britannia Old Colours
US Airways New Colours
These Monarch Liverys

I had forgotten about PanAm until after I posted. The large letter logo was a refreshing departure for its time, and the Manhattan building a landmark. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Pan-Am/Boeing-727-235/1665494/M/ It is just not the same on a locomotive or boxcar! http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8e/Pan_am_locomotives_rigby_20.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e8/Mec_31933_08-04-2005.jpg

I loved Braniff's Flying Colors! Used to see them all the time @ the old Stapleton Airport when I was a kid. I guess my favorites would be:
United 1970's and older
Braniff (see above)
Frontier Airlines (current)
The OLD Boeing Air Transport (early Airmail days or anything that used the old Boeing logo)
I also have an affinity for the fictional Trans Global Airlines from the movie 'Airport'.
Just my 2˘ worth...

You're right Pan AM's logo doesn't look the same on Trains. I like the
thin blue stripe on pan Am too. I guess I never paid that much attention to trains.

Transcontinental Air Transport, late 1920's.
Nothing quite like have your own monogram bold on the fuselage side.
03-28-2010, 12:37 AM
American Airlines and UAE Emirates!

Qantas use to have these colorful liveries as well..
Found one of these among my AI traffic on the other day. Can't remember the airport.

I always loved the old paint style that had the black antireflective paint on the nose in front of the windscreen.
Today, I'll go for those silver AA aircraft and I always thought Etihad's livery was very elegant.

I notice many simmers like "colorful" paints. I dont.
I wonder if when buying a car, would you enjoy having a pinky or art colorful car ?, or you would go for a straight classic color.?
When you want to be well-dressed, do you choose a strong colorful shirt, or a classic color with a small brand logo on it?
I dont like the current "all-white" or "mainly-all-white" that many airlines adopt either.
White is nice, classic and the best color (like in boats), but its use in airlines is so widely spread that becomes boring.
I think the classic paints of the 60s and 70s were the best.
Part bare metal with a solid line color below the windows, clear logos, they were much apealling. Colorful paints were associated with Caribbean airlines or holiday-bound resorts.
Like when you wear a beach T-shirt, sandals, and shorts..:)
