Its quite nice at the rear.... but the titles are way too small and it just doesn't look right. Not active enough, too staid

Is that the original design for the new livery, I thought the titles were much bigger taking up most of the front of the fuselage.

I like it, although I think it won't be around for long. Once the LT brand will have suffered a fate similar to that of DI ... my two cents.

Who knows, how long LTU will still exist after it was bought by Air Berlin a few days ago? Seems like that the new owner is more interested in the DUS slots than anything else. Currently they´re finishing DBA, I hope they let LTU live on.

I won´t change what I said about this livery when the concept showed up a few weeks ago. The old one was better though it needed an update. The tail design is better than before. In general its not special enough and reminds me a bit of Qantas, though QFs livery is better, more lively due to the kangeroo.

Me too. The tail logo somehow reminds me this one.

That was what I was expecting before I opened the photo to be honest. The LTU to be spread across the tail, I could have thought of that Big grin

Looks alright, I agree with OceansWorld, I does remind me of that TUI livery.



Make sure they know we're playing the game, but we don't need to play the game because we've already won the game.

Honestly, what is that supposed to be? They should have opted for a way more creative livery and designer. Simply boring and even more worse than their old scheme in my humble opinion. It would be a great improvement to paint the engine nacelle's in this red colour and to get rid of this .com titles.

SmartWings, Indigo? snd a million others?

Needs bigger letters or something more creative in the front... it's like something is missing.

Also, get rid of the AWFUL!!.com. That'd be an improvement but I'm sure they're too happy to display their tacky web address there. The rear half looks nice!. But overall since the .com cheesiness and the front is so plain, I'd go with the old colors.

6 out of 10.

I don't know what's more sad - someone who thought that was an attractive an eye-catching design, or the fact that serious $$$$ was paid for someone to fall asleep at the design studio and rush this through with just seconds left to go.

I mean at least with Euro-white, there's an original design to the tail. This is just pathetic.

What's the difference in budget to paint the same aircraft in a somewhat more creative livery???
Is it simple to double - they have reached the peak of boredom with this livery and the marketing guys should be fired right away.
There is such a thing as brand-awreness -....why is it that all German airlines have such a sh... paint ?
I love Frontier and the animals on the stabilizer- or some of the last AUA planes had some great paint-schemes..
( The latest A340 with paintings for the philharmonic orchestra was stunning..)
We most likely will see them repainted soon into the dark-red Air Berlin "Einheits-Logo" anyhow !

Igitt! Ugly! Boring!

What are those people thinking? The old LTU livery was great, was a classic, but this looks like all the other boring liveries out there. I can't believe it. The A340 will look very silly in that livery, I would have been a great sight in the old livery. What is the purpose of this?

Wow, Eurowhite. How original  Yeah sure So far, LTU at least had a livery that stood out. It might not have been the prettiest, but at least it was different from all the rest. This new one is simply boring.

LTU originally was a short-cut for "Luft Transport Union" (= "Air Transport Union"). Just in case you thought the "U" stood for "Unternehmen". Hairsplitting though, but the direct, literal translation of "Unternehmen" is "enterprise".

Perhaps it will not last long, would have thought the A320/321's would end up
in Air Berlin colours, question is will the A330's....
wonder if Air Berlin had any say in the colours? If not maybe it will be short lived...

cheers
