It's not bad, it's just kind of indistinct and boring. I wonder if airlines will ever move away from the current trend of having planes painted mostly white with a tail-heavy design.

White keeps planes cooler, as white reflects sunlight.  White also makes it easier for mechanics to spot irregularities, like cracks and dents.  And if needed, a white aircraft is easier to sell, as the new owner doesn't have to repaint the entire thing, just the tail.

Looks pretty good, but I don’t like teal being dominant over green.
