...to go back to the "old" livery. www.airlinersonline.com, that usually gives some interesting infos not to be found elsewhere, has this today: LTU might go back to the old livery after receiving bad critics from both tour operators and the public. Right so. LTU is a holiday airline and the new livery looks like a cheap scheduled airline but not like "I´m going to Mallorca." In the same news airlinersonline says the second A320 will be painted in the "old" livery already.
As far as you ask me, thats the better way. A slight overhaul of the red livery would be nice though.

LTU is a member of the Qualiflyergroup. The alliance forced its members to implement the Qualiflyer-blue-belly concept. That's the reason why some of the involved airlines went for a new colourscheme design. Now the Qualiflyergroup cancelled that blue-belly concept, the airlines do not feel the need anymore to change. LTU is even now going back to the former scheme due passenger dislike the newest scheme. I think the Qualiflyer blue belly concept was one of the biggest mistakes an alliance made. Perhaps that also occured the very bad situation in the alliance.
P.s.: Na, this was for me an interesting topic because I was very disappointed when I saw LTU's newest red-Sabena look a like livery. And thanks for the great tip of Airlinersonline.com. Great news site!

I wish Delta , Air Europa amd EL AL would go back to there old liveries . That would just make me so happy , all of these airlines going back to there older liveries (with Delta I mean the one before the Delataflot scheme).
PS-On the other hand look at SunCountrys new liverie Now that is a huge and great improvement.
