Hi everybody,

As far as I know Lufthansa is planning to publish a new color scheme this year celebrating the airline's 50th Anniversary. I'm not talking here about the Airbus A321 in retro colors.

Does anybody know when the new colors will be published this year ?

Thanks,

Chris

Hello

There probably just put some text at the back or something - The retro is the 50th birthday though in it.

I never heard of that, the only thing I heard that a new livery is planed with the introduction of the A380 like they did with the 747-400.

I also never heard about that. It must be the A321 in retro colours.

They are a little conservative with their colours. They don`t want to change it to often.

Great to hear LH will get a new livery, and they'll be the exception to all the other majors with attractive schemes that have adopted crappy liveries lately. The good thing here is that no matter what the new c/s are, they can't be any more boring than the current livery.

When will LH get the fist A380s? I can't wait for this change.

I doubt they will change it. The current scheme is only about 25 years old. It`s just only a quarter century.  biggrin

Do your mathe, the current paint scheme was introduced in 1989 with the 747-400.

I several carries will do that. Wasn't SQ testing new color schemes on trial groups for their A388 EOS?

Would be lovely, but I think LH will change the paint scheme only with the arrival of the first A380, not before.

Just out of curiosity, why does Lufthansa mark its aniversary based off of the restart of operations after WW2. In reality Lufthansa should be celebrating its 79th aniversarry this year. Lufthansa began when airlines "Deutsche Aero Lloyd" (DAL) and "Junkers Luftverkehr" merged on January 6, 1926 I understand why the Bundeswehr or the Government would restart counting aniversarries after WW@, but why an mere airline?

Vanguard737, Lufthansa specifically wanted to distance itself from what Luft Hansa (notice the difference in spelling - that, too, was a way of distancing itself) was before and, especially, during the war.

That's the reason why you won't see them celebrating their 79th anniversary for another 29 years.

I believe that the current Lufthansa is really Lufthansa II. It has nothing to do with the original Lufthansa. That airline was destroyed during the war and a new airline was formed thereafter. Think of it like the original Pan Am and the 3 Pan Am's that came after. None of them could claim to have been related to the original.

This is a very german thing and surely has historic reasons. The airline was refounded after the war and therefore officially exists for 50 years now. For Germans everything just really went on a good way after WW2, so we have a stronger mental/positive relation to that.

If you are talking about what I think you are talking about... it's been a few weeks ago since they did this. There is a very nice picture on a.net in black/white. Don't know the aircraft reg. though. And by the way, I think it's just for that one aircraft as a retro-celebration thing. Not for the entire fleet. But I could be mistaken...

Thrilled to hear that, but I have to agree. Lufthansa will prolly wait with the introduction untill the next big event - the introduction of the A380 to their fleet. If they had really wanted to change the livery with their borthday, they would have introduced it for their birthday.

Even though I agree that Lufthansa's livery is rather boring, i think it is a perfect choice for the airline. It is very conservative and timeless, the white and grey seem rather elegant, and the logo is rather subtle. As a world-wide airline I don't really see them go buck-wild on their planes at all. I am just hoping for a little change in it so it looks a little more attractive to the eye!

So that means NW's bowling shoe colors was 23 years old?

I love the LH livery. I agree with FlyinTLow:

I think the simple understated one color liveries of LH, NW, JetBlue, JAL, Qantas, and Varig are stronger, allowing the true forms of the airplane to be seen without being gussied up like a French whore, ie. Although the new UA livery is growing on me, it has to.....

The A380 looks like the WN Shamu scheme on steroids. The last livery is a little "too" much. Personally, I like the first one the best, though I think that "LUFTHANSA" is a little big on that one .

I also like option 2, and the two pics of 3D model scheme above as well. The shamu is horrible, and the fourth one is too Austin Powers, baby!

I think that LH will eventually change their livery just a bit. I think the Crane should be a bit larger on the tail so it can be noticed easier. Other than that I love LH's current livery and it fits them well.
