Southwest Airlines - Livery and Aircraft, Then and Now

Amazing how much Southwest has grown over the years!

727-200 and 737-200 - Mustard Rocket


737-700 and 737-800 - Canyon Blue

737 MAX 8 - Heart


I always thought the desert sand was more of a vomit color.


For some reason I like the desert sand on the 727. I think they look good together


It’s so beautiful! I always thought it was Desert Gold, though.

O boi, look at the length of those early engines! J e s u s

I love the desert sand livery. I wonder what’ll be next for this airline.

Southwest is my favorite LLC! Flown with them several times, good service and no complaints.

I’m not gonna lie, the newish southwest one is guuuuud.

Oldish one looks dated, and the real old one is disgusting.

Wow I remember watching the old TV programme “Airline” I think it was called and seeing that Desert Sand/Questionable Vomit on their aircraft.

These pictures seem very clear,

did you take these?

They are clear but I didn’t take either of them sadly, credits to the owners.

I suggest adding the link to to the photos then :)

One of my favorite airlines, fly them out of Houston-Hobby all the time.
