I'll be flying Vietnam this spring, maybe I'll show this to the flight attendants and tell them they need to play for my team.

 

Wow, how thoughtful! I mean, it would be an honor to showcase that to the FAs of Vietnam Airlines. I'll be delighted to know their reactions to the concept I made, if ever you'll show these to them. 🪷

BRITISH AIRWAYS

 

My home and road concepts for BA center on one theme: the Chatham Dockyard Union flag on the airline's current livery—from the collar to the socks and all the way to the pants' side panels. The sleeves also follow the theme, thus the blue sleeves regardless of the jersey's main color. Those same sleeves feature BA's coat of arms, which can also be found on the pants. By the way, both the home and road uniforms are inspired by @tBBP's work in 2006.

 

With all the options for the throwback uniform, I eventually settled on the BOAC livery, since it's the only retro livery that doesn't feature red. I didn't add TV numbers on the shoulders to evoke the retro feels of this particular uniform.

AIR NEW ZEALAND

 

Nothing can be simpler than using just two colors on an airline livery—let alone, if those two colors are black and white. But Air New Zealand's current liveries proved that a black-and-white look doesn't have to be boring, and it's all because of the fern, which is featured on the sleeves of my home and road uniform concepts for the airline.

 

The throwback livery I chose for the alternate is the Pacific Wave livery. I went with something I've never done before in this series: a gradient jersey. Instead of applying that gradient on the helmet, I thought it would be better if it's applied on a jersey. On top of that, the Pacific Wave is heavily featured on both the sleeves and the pants.

Weird request: You've done famous airlines, now for an infamous one:

 

Aerosucre, a Colombian cargo line that has lost two-thirds of every plane it has ever owned to crashes.

 

I didn't even know this airline until you said it. Now, I'm sorry in advance if I won't cover it since I'm not doing cargo airlines in this topic. Good suggestion, though.

GULF AIR

 

There's no shortage of gold—the color, that is—on the liveries of Gulf Air, especially the one that preceded the current livery. I wanted the home and road uniforms to have the similar color treatment as Georgia Tech's uniforms, but I later realized that designing with the current livery in mind will be challenging. This resulted to a gold jersey-tan pants home combo and an all-white road combo, in which both feature tan-colored shoulder yokes.

 

During the airline's 70th anniversary, Gulf Air unveiled an inaccurate version of its retro livery, where gold replaced all applications of the eggplant color—or is it brown? This time, I specifically picked the later version of the airline's tricolor livery, with the correct colors.

AER LINGUS

 

Ireland's flag carrier unveiled its current livery in 2019, and I gotta say, it looks like a green version of Qantas' current livery due to the same design treatment on its empennage. While it looks clean, it might have lost it's Irish-ness aside from the shamrocks found on the aircraft. With this livery in mind, I went with a random curvy design inspired by the design on the empennage.

 

While I mentioned that the current livery looks like Qantas, the airline's older livery is essentially a green version of KLM's older livery. The cheatlines from that particular livery become the main design for my retro alternate, with the side panel striping on the pants having the horizontal orientation instead of vertical, to match every other application of the cheatlines throughout the entire uniform.

AIR CANADA

 

I'm actually a fan of Air Canada's black-tailed livery, may it be the previous version (some images imply it's dark green but it's still black to me) or the current one with the "mask" painted on the cockpit windows.

 

The addition of the "mask" is a cool feature of the current regular paint scheme for the flag carrier of Canada, and therefore that's my focus on designing the home and road uniforms. Instead of making it pop out by using red on a black background or black on white, I went with sublimated colors, so that the simplicity of both uniforms is highlighted.

 

My choice for the throwback alternate would be the livery which featured a black notch on the aircraft's nose, which explains why I colored the helmet facemask black. And since it's Canada, I got to make the jersey red. In the thinking stages, I pondered on making a red version of the home/road jersey, but I eventually settled on using that color for the throwback.

SRILANKAN AIRLINES

 

I got fascinated with SriLankan Airlines because it formerly served flights to Manila, but this route has since been terminated. Recently, I watched a latest flight review of the airline—you can check the reviews on YouTube by yourselves.

 

Anyway, about the current livery, it truly reflected its 10-year partnership with Emirates, just by looking at the similar typography, the predominantly white paint job, and the way the logo is designed especially when placed on the tail. I went with blue as the primary color for the uniforms since it's heavily used on the airline's website, as well as the new belly design promoting Sri Lanka's tourism. The main design element that's found throughout the uniform is the current peacock logo, with its curves being a perfect fit. Since I don't want the home and road uniforms to be just two blues and white, I added the colors from the logo as an accent.

 

Before the rebrand in 1998, the airline was known as Air Lanka, and it was known for its peacock logo called "Dandu Monara". The livery that came with the airline's establishment following the demise of the country's former flag carrier Air Ceylon was quite simple, utilizing red and white. My retro uniform concept is pretty straightforward, using the curves on the empennage leading to the tail as striping on the sleeves and the pants.

Lol I always wondered what is with countries that have green and red/orange in their flag also using blue. Seems like a theme with Italy national teams, India soccer and now Sri Lankan Airlines

Don't forget Japan, too. You can thank Tokyo University for their colour choice.

ITA AIRWAYS

 

When I first saw the livery of Italy's new flag carrier, I thought it took a page from the country's national football team. This is necessary since the European Commission barred Italy from recycling the Alitalia brand, even if it's owned by the people behind ITA Airways.

 

So much for that, I went with a primary-clash-alternate designation for my 3 concept uniforms for the airline, starting with an all-blue uniform—an obvious homage to the Italian football team—but I did not make it blue from head to toe, due to the white engine nacelles. Both the helmet and the jersey feature a pattern of various shapes found on the tail. Next is an all-white uniform—even the helmet is also white—with the same theme as the blue uniform. This was done as a tribute to the airline's white liveries: the "Born in 2021", the "Born to be Sustainable", and the special half-blue, half-white livery.

 

While the Alitalia brand could not be used for now, the iconic brand remains alive in my alternate uniform. I specifically picked the 1969 version of the former Italian flag carrier's iconic livery, since it was the first iteration of what would become one of the signature looks in the skies. The cheatline design is placed in front of the jersey and on the pants' side panels, while a large version of Alitalia's tail logo adorns both sides of the helmet.

ROYAL JORDANIAN AIRLINES

 

Royal Jordanian surely has a bold livery, and I'm even more amazed that the overall design has been used all the way back in the mid-80s! Honestly, I thought it was unveiled in the 90s or the 2000s. So much for that, I basically translated that livery into a football uniform for the home version, while in the corresponding white jersey, I left the sleeves as is, as a homage to the airline's Oneworld livery.

 

The "Alia" branding of Royal Jordanian is preserved with a retro livery painted on one of the airline's A321 aircraft. While the uniform I designed is pretty straightforward, I spiced it up a bit by pairing the white jersey with red pants instead of grey pants. The helmet features different decals on each side: the left side features the "Alia" name in Arabic, while the right side features the same name but in English.

Hold up, they aren't called "Air Jordan"?

 

I see what you did there... 😏

 

Seriously speaking, the airline was formed by a royal decree, thus the "royal" moniker. 👑

CHINA EASTERN AIRLINES

 

While China Eastern's current livery has left nothing to be desired—joining the likes of Japan Airlines for having a plain all-white livery—it at least paid its dividends with an even distribution of red and blue all throughout the logos placed on the aircraft. That's the same theme I applied onto my home and road uniform concepts for the airline.

 

Yes, I know that the current livery doesn't have cheatlines, but I went with a red-and-blue striping applied on the jersey, the pants, and the socks. The white uniform will be worn primarily at home, with the blue uniform on the road. Now, why blue? Just like some of my concepts in this particular series, I based it from the airline's female flight attendant uniforms, which is also the reason behind the red belt on both home and road uniforms.

 

The alternate uniform in this concept set is taken from the airline's retro livery, which for some reason, includes gold striping. I chose red as the jersey color since it seemed to be the dominant color.

STARLUX AIRLINES

 

Taiwan's newest airline looked ultra elegant from the get-go, due to the colors that were chosen. I tried my best to give it justice with the uniform concepts I made.

 

Since Starlux is brand-spanking new—founded in 2018 and started operations in the worst time possible when COVID-19 was in its hard launch in 2020—there will be no throwback alternate and instead, I made a TRUE alternate uniform. All three colorways—white, anthracite, and gold—feature the same wavy design from the airline's livery, which is applied on the helmet and the sleeves.
