After it has been announced that Germanwings, Tuifly and Condor are supposed to merge in one new airline how are the chances that the name Condor will be kept and that Condor will get the 787s from Tui's order to replace the 767s ?


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

A 787 would offer more capacity which I would think would appeal to a charter operator...

I heard that Condor will outfit their 767 and 757 with winglets. So I think they tend to use them still for a long time.

787s on the FRA-YXY-ANC-FRA and FRA-YXY-FAI-FRA routes would be beyond awesome! However, I also remember hearing something about 767 winglets, and the 767 is one of my favourite wide bodies, so I guess I'll just happily sit back and see what happens.

Is this merger confirmed yet ? Last I saw was "talks, talks, talks".

Quite high, IMO. It is a reputable brand name. Much more than TUIfly.

Unless those 787's go to other airlines of/within TUI.
If they go to the merged DE/4U/X3, I think it is quite likely that they will be painted in DE-colors for longhaul flights.
Maybe some other brand name will be applied for the european network, but this is marketing strategy. Might as well be that the new airline will fly short- and longhaul under one brand name ...

Yes, like "Hapag Lloyd" was, but nothing did hinder these idiots to change a well known and reputable name, which it was for decades.  

These stupid publicity agencies and the German companies are depending on Denglish and they don't realize that they lose the attention of their target audience with their new and "hip" names and buzzwords.

Thomson Airways UK will get most of them IIRC. Some may go to the Germans and Scandinavians however

Fair point.
Hopefully, with LH behind behind the proposed merger, there will be a more thoughtful decision on the brandname(s) to be chosen ...
