The new livery simply looks like it has been designed by a 6 year old. There is just no consistency in colours and font and on top of that ' We fly at the right attitude' - this is embarrassing to say the least.

I agree that they should just have All Euro White air frame. But the flag on the tail can be modified to have it just like BA or Virgin Atlantic tail.

And at the front just large PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL or PIA.

Can anyone here make a mock up with a large Pakistan Flag on the tail which would cover a part of the rear just like BA or Virgin?

I agree with that.

This livery prectically not making a smooth appearance. Sizes and styles relationship broken between it's elements.

Only color-textures are eye catching but nothing else.

So far, PIA has also not given advertisement of new aircraft livery in newspapers.

I knew this PIA livery wasn't going to look good, but I thought maybe in real life I'll have another perspective and learn to love it. It's even worse in real life. Just look at all the empty space on the tail...the tail is the most recognizable part of any aircraft and almost every company brands itself based on the tail. Somebody explain to me why half the tail is empty and white?

Image

Look at how Qatar utilizes the whole tail. Also look how they merged the design of the tail into the body of the aircraft.

Image

And I don't get the choice of colour at all. A green tail should have been incorporated...maybe with a golden markhor. This would bring back the world 1980s livery while mixing it with a new design. I can't believe PIA actually paid somebody to make that livery and it took them months to do it.


I made this in 30 minutes on Adobe Illustrator. I'm not saying it's great, but at least it looks half descent. PIA can have it for free if they want!

This at least looks professional. Tail is full of colours. Looks modern and sleek.

The concept design above is absolutely superb. The only slight improvement perhaps to have Urdu PIA somewhere at the forwarded airframe.

I still don't understand the need for blue font instead of dark green by PIA management.

I hope someone in PIA takes a look at your design. It is million times better than the PIA bakra design.

It will be noticeable in world airports. ......will stand out.

Have you thought about having Pakistan flag wrapped around the tail just like BA or Virgin Atlantic tail?

It will be appreciated if you had time to replace the bakra tail with a waving Pakistan flag. .......I think it will look awesome.

Your design above is very professional by the way......Great work.

Since 2 or 3 planes are grounded for maintenance PIA should revert to the 1999 - 2004 livery and think about re branding when it can afford to do it properly.

Do we have any Flag Act which prohibits anyone to mess around with the national flag.
If yes, it should be applied here.

This is disgusting and extremely embarrassing. These are not Lahore to Karachi buses.

Perhaps PIA have applied the stickers as a temporary measure just to get a feel before painting the final livery.
Maybe they are unsure themselves.

Either way. ......the new livery is a bad idea in current financial situation. Passenger comfort and IFE is in desperate need of upgrade. ....not the livery.

This can't be panaflex? Panaflex cannot last one flight right? Aircraft paint must comprise of special formulas of primers, enamels, lacquers or whatever aviation terminology is used for them. This is just poorly done job.
