A couple of spotters and I were trying to figure out who (what airline) has,

A) the longest serving Livery? and

B) the longest serving logo?

Any ideas out there? we were all at a loss

Probably KLM or Qantas - being the oldest airlines in the english and non english speaking world respecitvely, although QF has changed its logo format, it has consistently had a kangaroo included in it and I think that KLM has always had a crown as a part of the Royal Dutch Airlines livery!

What a shame that the old Speedbird only lives on as a callsign. As a logo, it had the lot: simple, expressive of the product, instantly recognisable.

Monarch's logo is really old, but the actual livery has changed a million times. American, yeah, they've had the same livery for quite a while!!! United have had the same logo for a long time, just different livery. Good luck!! :)

kranich, the crane of the lufthansa logo was designed 1919 by otto fierle originally for deutsche luft-reederei and has been used by deutsche lufthansa since 1926, must be one of the oldest logos,
