Special Liveries (2021 and Later)

The AS special liveries seem to be multiplying so I thought it would be cool to have a thread about them. So far in 2021 there have been two unveiled with at least one more on the way.

Oneworld:

United Negro College Fund:

Coming soon:
Eco-Demonstrator:

LBGTQ Pride livery coming soon?

Given we are now June 2 - i would have thought that they would have unveiled anything in terms of pride by now. There arent any 738s in paint right now either.....so i wouldnt expect a pride livery.

I am getting frustrated that pride has gone the way of South by Southwest, ACL and Comicon - its all corporate marketing now. As part of the community, its great to see the inclusion, but its become all marketing now and not really about the cause....just because you change your logo to a rainbow doesnt mean you are really inclusive.....

OK lights on the fuselage is one thing......but paint on the aircraft is a whole different thing......across the fleet i havent seen any planes parked for a while that arent in storage.....no paint stations either......perhaps a future max delivery, but at this point i dont expect a rainbow aircraft.....i can see a few stickers applied...but who cares....nothing exciting there.

Per a tweet from NOAA research this morning, we finally have a look at the ecoDemonstrator livery. I like the look of it, personally.

I am wondering is it a paint job or just stickers on a regular AS paint scheme. Guess we will have to wait a see it close up but I think it looks like a sticker job.

So this would make it a "Glow Job".

Yeah, I'm betting sticker decals, not full paint job.

I like it, and it made me chuckle that she's an ex-Virgin.

Seems like a very short term commitment, plane will be leaving in 1-2 year, for a company that prides itself on being a long time support of the LBBTQ+ community. If it had been on a Boeing it would seem like a longer term thing .

I just assumed it was for Pride Month (June), hence the decals vs. a paint job. No idea tho.
