Brussels Airlines New Livery

Since Brussels Airlines changed her color scheme drastically, I'm quite curious what people think about it. That's why I created this poll. I'm looking forward to the outcome! And feel free to leave your opinion in the comments.

And for the people who didn't see the new livery yet, here it is:

Re: Brussels Airlines New Livery

I am currently searching for the right words to express my opinion on the new painting.

The press conference said so nicely that the word "Brussels" is emblazoned in capital letters on the fuselage to emphasise the airline's Belgian identity. For me, this has nothing to do with Belgian identity.
Instead of Brussels, it could also say Eurowings, which would be believable.

A brand should always be identifiable, even if the brand name were removed.

Re: Brussels Airlines New Livery

Hi, thanks for the poll.
No, i don'tlike this livery even if it was original. Why i say this? Because this is Croatia Airlines livery with rounds instead of squares on the tail.
But, of course, being Brussels Airlines new livery and, in the next future, a common view in all main airports, i hope Herpa will produce it.

That is true, i just don’t understand what 9 dots have to do with a belgium airline. The old “b” on the tail makes much more sense and more original.

Re: Brussels Airlines New Livery

It's very sad... While I kinda like the large "Brussels" titles, the rest of the livery is just sad and, as said before, a weird copy of Croatia Airlines. At least it's an interesting case to put my IP-law course of last year into practice

I really liked the old livery and the fourteen dots B-logo.

The new livery and logo are supposed to represent and symbolise their 'Belgian identity', which makes absolutely no sense. The orange color is in no way related to Belgium or any of it's regions and the logo just represent random dots... I guess this rebranding follows the recent rebranding of the other Lufthansa-Group airlines but this one is by far the worst. They should have gone with simple rebranding like they did with Austrian: keep the previous tail and add new, bigger titles on a white fuselage.

In Belgian newspapers and social media the livery is also highly criticised.

I also like the new titles, and what you say, just a simple rebranding. It would have been beautiful.

I also read that they wanted to keep the design cost low. But i think this new design is costing more then when they just did the simple rebrading like you said. I think they should change it, but i believe with the effort and money spend on this, they will not do it.

Interesting , whoever designed this rebrand apparently didn't have much inspiration to come up with something new.

You are from Belgium Alberic, so: do you see something (even small, little, maybe hidden) related to Belgium, Belgium history and/or Sabena/SN Brussels/Brussels Airlines? Maybe something we, not Belgian, can't understand. Because i can't believe Brussels Airlines changed brand and livery without a meaning and without reflecting on the possible consequences of a livery that doesn't reflect and represents the history and the features of a so proud population like your.

Re: Brussels Airlines New Livery

It reminds me of Croatia Airlines too much to be a distinct livery. I wasn't overly big on their old livery, but this is worse..
