Qantas A380 (new livery)

Just today Qantas unveiled their first A380 painted in the new livery. I personally think this livery is quite fitting on the A380 and I’m excited to see this A380 return to service in Qantas’ network.

Qantas is the flag carrier of Australia and its largest airline by fleet size, international flights and international destinations. It is the third oldest airline in the world, after KLM and Avianca having been founded in November 1920; it began international passenger flights in May 1935. The Qantas name comes from “QANTAS”, an acronym for its original name, “Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services”, and it is nicknamed “The Flying Kangaroo”. Qantas is a founding member of the Oneworld airline alliance.

The airline is based in the Sydney suburb of Mascot with its main hub at Sydney Airport. As of March 2014, Qantas had a 65% share of the Australian domestic market and carried 14.9% of all passengers travelling in and out of Australia.[7][8] Various subsidiary airlines operate to regional centres and on some trunk routes within Australia under the QantasLink banner. Its subsidiary Jetconnect provides services between Australia and New Zealand, flying under the Qantas brand. Qantas also owns Jetstar Airways, a low-cost airline that operates both international services from Australia and domestic services within Australia and New Zealand; and holds stakes in a number of other Jetstar-branded airlines.

Qantas was founded in Winton, Queensland on 16 November 1920 as Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited.[9] The airline’s first aircraft was an Avro 504K. In 1920 Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Ltd had its headquarters in Winton before moving to Longreach, Queensland in 1921 and Brisbane in 1930.

This aircraft should definitely be added in the next update. It’s simply a great livery on a great aircraft.

if you don’t have a vote, please don’t bother commenting ‘I wish I had a vote’ please vote or be quiet

A great step up from the past livery. The previous one just looked weird on such a modern plane. This livery suits it well but as I need to be wise on my votes I shall not vote on it due to the simple fact that the developers don’t seem to be that interested in anything A380 related. If an A380 rework ever comes to the spotlight you will be sure that you will have my vote!

Dear everyone, if you don’t have a vote, don’t bother saying ‘I would vote, but I don’t have any votes’ no one cares. Clear a vote or don’t say anything.

Let’s get this into an update everyone! Keep voting!

The A380 is an incredibly old model, it won’t be added till the A380 rework, and seeing how unpopular the plane is, that’s a long way away

It would definitely be more popular if the A380 got reworked. Perhaps it’ll be the next airbus rework in line. (after the A330/A340

Agreed… was a bit mean…

Disagreeed…I see it on every post…

Did you actually read what he said… in bold?
Or did you just read the title and saw the pic?
Btw, he’s not getting agressive, I am.


On another, more positive note - I think Qantas has made a great choice to include the A380 into its new livery.
