It doesn't carry any DBA slogan at all, as far as I can see. I thought it's necessary by law to put a small "operated by" sticker if the aircraft is operated by a different airline than the livery the aircraft is operated in???

I was interested to see if there would be a DBA sticker by the nose of the plane like there is on the Air Berlin Fokkers which are operated by Germania. Perhaps these have just not yet been applied yet? And most important, will Air Berlin carry on the DBA tradition of giving passengers a heart-shaped chocolate?

I flew on D-ADIB on Monday. Nice on the outside, but the inside looked pretty old. No stickers on the plane though.
What I did find odd though was that they did not say it was an Air Berlin flight powered by dba, which it claimed in Air Berlin's inflight mag. Weird, since it was a sub for a "real" Air Berlin flight with Air Berlin catering.

Do not forget all these Fokker 100s in Germany come from the same operator, Germania, anyway... They were used for AB, HLX, DBA and so on. When DBA still served THF, they were both flying F100s with Gexx and DBA scheme there.
The one seen above uses the HLX paint scheme, indeed not really a typical DBA scheme, but a beautiful livery indeed.
I think it is better to save money by not repainting every single week.

Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 6): Air Berlin seriously needs a logo/cs update. It's so BORING !
They freshened it up a few years ago by replacing the grey with white. I think it is quite a unique colourscheme and rather like it. Much better than what it would probably be if they changed it - white with big 'airberlin.com' titles I bet.
Well it has been leased by HLX as you can see. End of November HLX returned both Fokkers back to the lessor Germania. Germania obviously leased it immediately to dba. So, to answer your question: I don't think it's a short-term lease because HLX won't take them back.
