This post from Facebook seems to advance the notion that Aer Lingus will have a new livery soon:

Saves 'em money. Could have been worse. Beats LH's makeover.

Hardly inspiring. Hard to tell against that vomit-inducing background, though.

They must like their 757s if they're bothering to repaint them.

Great, more euro-white. :|

I agree, though, we've seen worse. But I'd prefer if they followed KLM's lead. Their livery update works very well for me, and while it's a small change, I think it does make quite a difference {twocents}



Would have looked neat on EI's A330, I think.



Get rid of the blue stripe, make the light green a bit brighter, add an elegant curve, and you have a more modern livery that is still immediately recognizable.

...and instantly derided as a KLM knock-off...

I'll a take a knock-off of a great concept over a unique, but lame one any day.

Not that there's anything unique about EI's new livery. {bored}

Reinventing the wheel for nothing.

What is/was wrong with the current livery?

Like Mr. Scott said in ST3, "the more they overcheck the plumbing, the more they stop up the drain".

Not a fan.

OK, I guess I am the odd man out ... I confess, now that I have seen a shot of it "in the field" I find it to be not as bad as expected, I actually like it. Especially I like that the cowlings are colored now and that there is better/greater contrast between the green tones (that actually was something which slightly bothered me on the old livery). It would have been nice if they had added some orange though, for instance a straight or curved stripe/band along the fuselage.

All in all, imo they probably could have done a better job, but it also could have been much worse. I'll take it from the positive side, now I have a another good reason to go spotting at BOS and JFK again ...

Be easy on me ...

If you line up aircraft from IB, LV and now EI they're a colour change on the tail and engines short of being identical. How long before we see a new BA scheme that's the same only in red white & blue?

I picture LATAM. {yuck}

You forgot LH.

Could have been worse,but it`s pretty naff still.
I never liked the darker shade of green along the windows on Aer Lingus aircraft,so glad it`s gone,but as ever there is too much Polar White-boring.

I'm not a fan of the "Aer Lufty" livery. When the LH update first came out, I was thinking how dark or gray engines would have helped to balance out all the Euro-white, but this Aer Lingus update proves that wrong. One recent livery update that makes my "yea" list is from EVA Air. Even with the white on the forward section, the green and orange accent the fuselage very nicely.

An A320 has also been released in the new scheme:

Seems to suit it slightly better - I do like the shamrock and Aer Lingus style, I just think they could have done a little more.
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

The tail is nice, and I like what they did with the colours. Still too much eurowhite for my liking. It's not a horrible livery, but it's nothing special, either.

And it's in the DB.

It looks better in an actual photograph. That said, at first glance it looks more like a temporary "we're just leasing this thing for a few months" livery.
