The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a good looking aircraft.
Thankfully there are some airline liveries that really suit the aircraft. These should be top of your target list if you’re an aircraft photographer!
El Al Retro 787
Air Canada’s current ‘bandit’ livery looks incredibly smart on the Dreamliner, with the black mask around the cockpit and sharp black-and-red tail.
Gulf Air Retro 787
Many spotters of a certain age will remember when Gulf Air was the biggest airline in the Middle East, and its Lockheed TriStars and Boeing 767s were common around the world wearing this livery. It’s great to see it back again.
The fourth 787-9 to join Qantas’ fleet, VH-ZND, wears this special aboriginal livery in line with many other aircraft in the airline’s past.
This early operator of the Dreamliner chose to add an extra bit of colour to its standard livery with its 787s.
ANA Star Wars
ANA All Nippon Airways painted 787 JA873A in a special R2-D2 livery promoting Star Wars.
Etihad Formula 1
Dreamliner A6-BLV wears this special livery promoting the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Looking like a children’s colouring book, Aeromexico’s XA-ADL wears this special Quetzacoatl livery which is definitely unusual!
American Airlines in classic silver were stunning, now in gray, just like other carriers.
A backward step in my opinion.
