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.

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.

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?
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...

: Just what the airline world needs. Another predominately white livery. The tail logo looks good, but come on people, someone bring back CHEAT LINES!!!
: It's not that bad, but that awful ".com" is annoying. I mean come on, it's an airline, not an internet service provider. I think most people in this w
