It is OK for today´s standards and in my opinion a relatively "good" one after the combined Air-India and Indian Airlines - personally I like the former livery of Indian Airlines with the stylized "IA"-logo very much and it was simple while at the same time easily recognizeable.
It is nice that they retained some of the hallmarks of the old Air-India scheme like the windowline, albeit in a more modern version and th euse of two version of the "Air-India".

I got these images courtesy of Rene in Hamburg...
It seems that with no current orders (from Airbus et al) they have just painted the new livery design on an Indian Airlines jet. Does anybody know any reasons why they have done this?Just to see if the new scheme works maybe?
I believe that shot above is going to become somewhat of a rarity - it's the only aircraft that will be painted up as such, the rest of the fleet being delivered in the 'new' AI colours.
Vidi, Vici, Veni. I saw, I conquered, I came.
Members Some of the present fleet are beginning to be repainted in the new scheme, one of the old 777 fleet, VT-AIR has already been done, seen here in action at Birmingham, where it is a regular visitor; these new colours are very attractive when seen in good light.
I like it.
Engine cowlings are all too often overlooked in a colour scheme.....
I especially like the fact they have retained those windows......
Is there anybody out there?
the first 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplane was delivered to Air India on 10th Oct 2007. This is the first 777-300ER from Air India’s
order of 68 Boeing jetliners placed in December 2005. Air India’s
777-300ER has a three-class configuration, including four first-class,
35 executive class and 303 economy seats. In July 2007, Boeing and Air
India celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first 777, a 777-200LR
(Longer Range) Worldliner airplane. To date, Air India has received 14
airplanes from its December 2005 order, including three 777-200LRs
(Longer Range) and one 777-300ER, and 10 737-800s for Air India Express.
IMHO - the new color combination is different and it will take someone who has grown up with the Air-India Red and the Maharaja (that is the quintessential AI Mascot) to get used to. But I am sure it looks great in real life.
