Rumors are flying: Will Southwest Airlines change the look of its planes?

I still say, not so good. They are trying to replicate the super low cost European Airlines, Ryanair and easyjet.

Let's HOPE SWA won't duplicate FR interior in ANY way. It's repulsive, tacky and cheap.

Barf!

EasyJet is evolving into a premium lcc, FR should follow soon I bet.

Ryanair does fly to Lubeck.
Most people probably don't care, but it's L[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]?[/FONT]beck (LBC)

Edit: Since when does FI not accept special characters anymore ...

So all the airplanes that have already come over from AT were painted in the old paint scheme? Couldn't change it up a year or two earlier and avoid painting the same planes twice? Way to go!

Those planes won't get re-painted until the new paint is old and faded and ready for a re-paint again.

I think the GO already had more than enough on their plates a year or so ago to also take on a new livery. As Howard mentioned, any jets that just got recently repainted get to wear the old scheme for the next seven years. Just like the corn-dog to canyon-blue transition, the fleet will be very mixed for several years. It wouldn't surprise me to see some of the last fATN -700s show up with the new paint soon. There are still quite a few presently in conversion.

My first thought... Fisher-Price.
