Airline Football Uniform Concepts - Open for Airline Suggestions

ZIPAIR TOKYO

 

An airline in which I'm looking forward to try, Zipair truly gives other low-cost carriers a run for their money. "Simple but complex" is how I define its livery. Who would've thought that a good livery can be done using multi-colored lines and two "boring" colors? Anyway, I chose the wide version of the pattern on the tail over the narrow one, and placed it all over the uniform. Those "boring" colors are the two choices for both the jersey and the pants, and all of these are complemented with mint green socks.

 

Since Zipair is relatively new, having commenced its operations during the pandemic year of 2020, there won't be a retro alternate, similar to the case of my Starlux Airlines uniform concept set. I initially went for a mint green-on-mint green jersey-pants combo, but I didn't like the result. Then, I just realized that an all-black uniform can be made. Part of it is due to the airline's flight attendant uniforms (which happened to have the same black theme as Zipair's parent company, Japan Airlines), and another part is due to the color of the seats, whether with standard Economy Class seats or the lie-flat seats.

 

One important thing to note is that I didn't apply the "Z" monogram logo on any part of the uniform because of something I couldn't say here, so check that out for yourselves. This is also the same reason behind the change in the tail graphics. But graphics-wise, it's a great move by the higher-ups of Zipair, since putting up a "Z" on the tail along with a single mint green line makes the livery even more boring.

If not for the plane theme I'd have done black home, mint away, zero traces of white

 

Yeah, like I said in the beginning, the number one rule I set in this series is to translate airline liveries into football uniforms as much as possible. I've already imagined a mint jersey, and unfortunately, I did not like it. So I dropped it in favor of black.

KENYA AIRWAYS

 

The flag of Kenya is basically the inspiration behind the tail design on Kenya Airways' current livery, which is the primary design element found all throughout the home and road uniforms—from the helmet to the jersey sleeves and onto the pants' side panels. It's quite a straightforward explanation, and the only thing I would add to it is my decision for the color choices on the socks: red socks when paired with white pants, and black socks with red pants.

 

For my retro alternate, I chose the particular livery featuring cheatlines containing all three colors from the flag of Kenya. The light grey pants had its traces from that livery's silver fuselage belly.

SOUTH AFRICAN AIRWAYS

 

When it comes to my home and road uniform concepts for SAA, it's all about the tail logo—from the helmet, to the jerseys and the pants, all the ways to the socks. Since the current livery is generally just a Eurowhite scheme, I had to make the uniforms distinguishable without the helmet and the socks, so I added the triangles from the tail logo and made them sublimated on both the jerseys and the pants. And since blue has been generally one of the main colors of SAA throughout the airline's history, I chose it as the primary dark color for the clothing.

 

In the case of the retro alternate, though, it's the complete opposite, as orange takes the lion's share in the color distribution. This is heavily influenced by the tail color on the airline's old liveries, specifically on the most recent orange-and-blue paint scheme. For a change, I positioned the stripes on the shoulders, since most of my concepts have stripes positioned on the sleeves.

 

To mark the special occasion, all three uniforms feature SAA's 90th anniversary logo on the helmets' front bumper and on the front of the jerseys as a patch.

EGYPTAIR

 

When I looked upon Egyptair's current livery, the tail design alone made me intimidated, since the gradient is quite intricate. Anyway, the home and road uniform designs are straightforward. And by straightforward, I mean, I just literally translated the livery design into a football uniform: tail design to the helmet and front fuselage logo on the sleeves. A random curved, tapered stripe based from the front fuselage logo adorns the sides of the pants.

 

The airline's livery for much of the 90's was the basis for the throwback uniform. Red was one of the primary colors of Egyptair at the time, and it looked great along with gold on the white background of the fuselage. I then applied the same curves from that livery's tail design to the helmet, and it evoked an old-school look, much like what I did with my Garuda Indonesia and Southwest Airlines throwback uniform concepts.

JETSTAR

 

Since Jetstar right now has a few subsidiaries, I'm focusing on the mainline carrier that's established in Australia. Sure, this airline's livery is plain and simple, but the choice of colors is out-of-the-box. And so, grey is the home jersey color, while the orange jersey will be worn on the road. The color combo definitely reminds me of the BC Lions or Oklahoma State football.

 

Speaking of Oklahoma State, that was one of my inspirations behind the all-black (except for the helmet) alternate uniform. Well actually, I first thought of the Detroit Lions' new black uniform, and thought, "hey, I can make one for Jetstar!" The orange helmet is taken from a livery variant in which the tail is orange.

 

Since the livery is quite simple, there's no striping throughout all three uniforms. The unique design element for this concept set would be the sublimated star logo on the sleeves.

AZUL BRAZILIAN AIRLINES

 

Now we head to Brazil for one of its full-service airlines. I know almost everyone will compare this to the 2010-2016 Utah Jazz uniforms, essentially a football uniform version of it. The explanation behind the striping is the overall design of the airline's livery, where navy blue is surrounded with yellow inner striping and green outer striping—thus making it similar to the look of the Jazz in the early to mid 2010s. And if you'll look closer, inside the sleeve stripe is a sublimated version of Azul's logo.

 

On the other hand, I consider the alternate uniform that I made as a "national pride" uniform since I based it on the airline's flag livery.

SCOOT

 

Singapore Airlines' low-cost subsidiary also knows how to make itself unique among the rest, just by looking at its livery. I took the curved design found in the front part of the fuselage and made it suitable on a football uniform, while the curves on the empennage and the tail are found on the helmet and socks. Just a tidbit of an info, the usual shade of yellow used by Scoot is different from what's applied on the livery, and I chose the latter so that it's not that hard to read when paired with white. Don't worry, I applied black as an accent color on the NOB and the numbers.

 

For the throwback uniform, I decided to honor Tigerair, which merged with Scoot in 2017. The tiger stripes from the tail is the main design element throughout the uniform, and the outcome looks something that the Cincinnati Bengals can wear.

  • edjb93 changed the title to Airline Football Uniform Concepts - Scoot: Because Travel Deserves Better

Since I'm running out of ideas, I'm now open for airline suggestions! There are things that should be kept in mind, though:

  • Airlines should be either mainstream full-service or low-cost carriers that all serve international destinations.
  • I'll be limiting this forum to only passenger airlines, since cargo carriers have limited livery histories.
  • I'll also be open to create concepts for defunct mainstream airlines such as Northwest and Continental. Just make sure that the defunct airline suggestions serve international destinations too.

 

Please take note that designing uniforms for a certain airline may vary depending on the livery design, there are the simple ones like Japan Airlines (which take a short time) and there are more complicated designs such as Egyptair (which take a longer time, depending on the complexity of the design).

 

Thank you for your appreciation of this forum topic, and I'll be looking forward to your comments and suggestions!

Thanks for all these suggestions! 😉

 

@TheAnt755, before your suggestions came in, one of them is already in my backlog, that being JetBlue. I haven't made a concept set as I'm typing this message, but it would be interesting which design shall I go, though I'm really in favor of JetBlue's all-blue livery. As a spoiler, I'll be using the design of "What's Old Is Blue Again" for the alternate uniform, since it's a throwback-inspired livery.

 

@Bomba Tomba, since Air Koryo sports both the old and new liveries, I'm thinking about which should I go for.

 

@Blindsay, Air Jamaica might be the first defunct airline in this series once I'm finished with that carrier. And which Eastern Air are we referring to? Is it the old Eastern Air Lines from the US?

 

@FCMacbeth, yep. As much as possible, I would like to finish the full-service carriers first,. However, I've sneaked in some LCCs in between, so let's see what happens next.

Hi everyone!

 

I know it has been weeks since I made my last concept. That's because I put my attention on other important things recently, and I'm feeling both excited and nervous these past days because I'll be heading to Japan for a solo trip, in which I'll be hopping on one of the airlines covered in this forum.

 

Don't worry, I already have a design for JetBlue and I'll just put the numbers and logo on the uniforms. It will just take a while before I can finalize that.

 

I would like to apologize for the extended delay, and I hope I can get back to this project.

 

Thanks for all your appreciation!
