    Very oriental looking!

    I personally don't like it on the 737, looks great on heavies.

      Nice - but I agree with A330-300 - it's too cluttered on the 737

        Wonderfully colourfull on every airframe

        Harks back to BA adventurous and sadly ill fated Utopia scheme.

          Just curious, oriental, as in Chinese/Japanese/Korean?

          I think that the meaning of the word "oriental" changes from the US to Europe. Here in the US, an oriental person is someone from the far-east Asian country.

          As to the tails, I'm personally not too keen on them simply because they detract from a unifying corporate livery.

            Oriental as in a cross between far east and middle east.

              Really?! You actually see elements of Chinese/Japanese or Korean influence in those designs?

              I see a more Indian influence.

                Yeah TBH they have more of an Indian look, but to me they just shout out Far East.

                  So I take it you do not approve of Frontier's livery then?

                  Sometimes being different pays... PIA's new tails will be instantly recognisable at any airport in the world. As would Frontiers, were they to start international routes.

                  Both companies have a strong unified brand on the fuselage and on their documentation. The tail of an aircraft is prime advertising space, why not take advantage and attract attention to it in this colourful way?

                    To answer your question, no Frontier livery does not do a whole lot for me. I do, however see your point of view. In a sea of standard corporate liveries, I guess PIA/Frontier are like the lady in red at a black-tux ball- as long as not everyone decides to wear a red dress

                      I didn't know PIA had 737's. I like the Exotic Valley the best.

                        It just has the PIA feel to it doesn't it?
