I agree the livery is smart (although hardly novel), but it is still like lipstick on a pig. You can’t get away from the fact that what lies underneath is absolutely hideous
I think the B747 is ugly too, but at least it has a certain majesty to it. The A380 is just gopping. I still want to fly on one, though, not least because I won’t be able to see that awful nose profile from the inside!
