I don’t mean to be rude but the Contigo Livery looks a bit bland…

From my eyes I can only see extra stripe and the words Contigo,
would you mind adding a bit of information on what Contigo means and why the livery is special?

Summary

Sorry if I misspelled ‘Contigo’

SURE, thanks for the comment!

I’m a big fan of AeroMexico but this is just too boring to be in IF. I’d rather have the Quetzalcoatl or the ones with a pyramid on the side.

Nice livery, but I think the FDS said something about not adding special liveries to IF.
(Besides the Boeing 717-200 AirTran Atlanta Falcons)

I don’t think they’ve said that. Because we do have that KLM Orange pride and that was very recent update.

I must have been hallucinating in that case, or they said sports liveries. :-|

“Contigo” means “With You” and is a travel program for US citizens and Mexicans who travel frequently between this two countries. That’s what I know until now.

I did this topic with this specific livery for not getting confused and close this letting the “Split Scimitar Winglets” stay alone without requesting a normal NG 737 with AeroMexio Paint 😛

This is a very nice-lookin livery! I especially love seeing the B738 with the splits!
There’s just too many important things to vote for right now though, so I’m out of votes…
Sorry.

Since your suggestion differs in some livery details from this topic, you could create a topic for that livery of your photo if no one has created it yet.

Bringing this topic up again. Will be nice to see this livery in the game. Or at least the normal livery. Only 3 Latin American liveries, wouldn’t be bad seeing another one. Latin American liveries are usually ignored 😦
