Their current paintjob is probably most expensive of all airlines.

It's polished aluminium not paint so they have quite light planes when compared with other airlines.

I think they could've updated the eagle in a nicer way tbh even if they had to drop the silver.

It's all right. I'm warming to it.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Even though this new logo seems to be more modern, font is anything but. I usually agree with Futurebrand's work, but the tail is just horrible. The logo likes like a pair of 3d glasses

Atleast its not a couple of lines of helvetica for a change. One of the most famous branding agency in the world did the logo for my University which compromised of just a text in helvetica following a colon and charged over 100k for it.
which university? (curious to see the logo)

I actually really like the new look. Looks modern and contemporary, while retaining a classy feel.
