Here is the new livery to Virgin Australia.

I really don't like it, but that is just my own opinion.

I like the tail, but to much white, looks rather cheap to me.

I hope they aint gonna paint the 77W's like that, would look s#%t imo.

I like it... I really dont understand why both domestic and international cant both be 'V Australia' or 'Virgin Australia' though... why seperate the names?

The airline is "Virgin", but not allowed to use the name "Virgin" outside of Australia. Hence the two names.

It's a pathetic effort. All that money & time and they come up with a boring scheme like that! You wont even be able to see the flying lady or VA name at night :roll:

Is anyone not going to fly Virgin Australia because of the new livery?

I've changed my mind, I like it however, this story has huge hype. I have flown Virgin Blue twice, last month was the last one, and the seats are not good in the 738 for tall people but for an hour or so flight that is cool. But I will pay more to fly Brisbane Perth when I need to go over there next year, 5 hours on A330 sounds more appealing than 738.

Is that in the 738 with the new seats & interior though? Not sure if pitch has improved, but it certainly looks like a massive improvement over the old product....
