just dedected that there is already 1 photo of the Airbus A320 OE-LBQ in the database (although picture was taken only by yesterday evening! - quick work!)

For me the A320 looks very elegant and perfect styled in the NG colour scheme. What do you think?

I am truly surprised - NG's colors look very good on the A320! I always considered that livery to be somewhere between dull and ugly, but this looks really nice!

Frank

I thought the Lauda Air colors would disapear since they were (taken over)? by Austrian.

Thanks for posting this, I had no idea Lauda had A320s. I guess maybe Austrian will keep Lauda as a subsidiary. Can someone clear this up for me?



The Lauda scheme used to be one of my favorites on the 767s back when the fuselages were painted white on top. That made them look much more striking.. now it's just a dull, gray thing.

I bet they thought gray would look more 'professional' or whatever.. but instead it ruined this otherwise sharp paintscheme. As the saying goes, don't fix it if ain't broken!

Miamix707,

The 320 has been transfered from the OS fleet.

I must admit, the 320 looks pretty good in the Lauda c/s.

Yeah, that gray color is awful.. anyways will Lauda be around flying long haul charters with 767s and 777s? I thought I read somewhere these flights were going to be taken over by Austrian.

Hi Miami
the 772's (OE-LPA/LPB/LPC) are in use with OS for long-haul schedules (mainly Austral-Asia) and will get OS colors (I think the 1st one is due to repainting in June)
the 763's will be mainly used by OS for long-haul schedules (but also sometimes on short to medium routes when the demand is given) and are also in use with NG for the long-haul leisure flights (like Caribbean area). The 763's are partially in Star Alliance colors (OE-LAT/LAW/LAY/LAZ), one has NG colors (OE-LAX) and 1 763 (OE-LAE) is right now in the paintshop in Shannon (or could already be out of the paintshop, not sure) and will get OS colors - I am curious how the 767 will look like with the baby-blue engines  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Regarding the A320's from OS now partially in use with NG for charters. Many people are wondering a little bit for the moment about the equipment swapping especially with the 738's and the A320's. I think it is a matter of seating capacity and because touroperators chartering the aircraft do request A320 in order to have the same aircraft like their competitors using "FlyNiki" or LTU-Austria.

In addition OS group is frequently swapping equipment between 738's / A32x's to stay flexible with seating demand. The 738's will all stay in NG or Star Alliance colors, there are no plans to paint a few 738's in OS colours.
2 737's (one -300 and 1 400-series) will be phased out between June and August.


The "rebranding schedule" of OS group is quite complicated but the final goal will be the separation of the schedule flights (OS) from the leisure flights (NG) as well as the regional system (VO - now operating as "Austrian Arrows").

Hope this info helps a little bit and possibly also answers your questions posted in reply 2

I really enjoy that livery on the A320, but I really like the Austrian livery more. I have been dying to see a 777 or 767 in the new Austrian livery.

Hi TW741

Thanks for that detailed information! So it looks like my chances of seeing Lauda Air at Miami again in their own colors are diminishing, if they ever decide to reinstate that service.

The new Austrian livery to me looks alright on the A330, but it's a bit 'girlish' with that baby blue and thinner logo. Overall I like the old colors a bit more because of the green/blue cheatline.

@Jimmi - greetings to Bournemouth!

Cant be that someone is confused about these nice aircraft movements between OS and NG - just to confuse you more - check this thread: http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1928683/  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

All airlines of the OS group are going to stay as they are - they just get exactly specified areas:

OS Group is
OS - "Austrian Airlines" for the worldwide scheduled flights
NG - "Austrian Leisure" for the charter flights and Leisure flights
VO - "Austrian Arrows" for the shorthaul/regional flights
6Q - "Slovak Airlines" - unknown for the moment what OS is planning for them

But dont ask to specific - sometimes I have the feeling OS headoffice is also not 100% sure about their group members  Laugh out loud

Oh by the way - OE-LBR, another A320 of OS - is now under repainting to NG colors  Nuts

Cheers

"Slovak Airlines" would probably be an interesting option as a low cost operation from nearby BTS due to its lower production costs and the generally cheaper airport and handling fees in the Slovakian capital.

After all, BTS is only a few miles further away from Vienna than Schwechat...
