Another airline that can't leave well enough alone...

American and Iberia have ditched iconic logos - which could be recognised without any need for the airline name to be written alongside - in favour of abstract swooshes of colour which say nothing about the company name.

I see nothing wrong with the shamrock. If they want to update the livery, they should be taking a leaf out of KLM and LH's book - there's no reason why a historic logo can't be integrated in a contemporary design.

I'm also confused by the statement that "the Aer Lingus brand will remain" - surely they weren't thinking of a name change?!

I wouldn't be surprised if they had thought of one but maybe political sensibilities prevented that with them being a strong Irish brand?

I have now read a source on another forum which says the shamrock will be staying. Seems pretty authoritative as it was from live twitter updates on an EI news conference. (y)
