I've just realized and noticed that dozens of SWISS aircraft still contain the former Cube logo and typeface. Considering the official reveal and painted livery of the "revised" A333 was months ago, how come we have not seen any other aircraft painted in this revised livery?
Is LX being very slow in the rebranding, or are they having second thoughts about the new livery (or both)?

I'm guessing it's the former. It is very rare for a company to do an about-face on a branding refresh, considering that it can be a PR nightmare. It is known to happen, though.. AI comes to mind, but that is probably not the best example to cite.

Since the livery change is not that big, the new livery will be implemented in the 'normal' painting cyclus of the aircraft.
This way it takes longer before all aircraft are repainted, but at no extra cost.
The Swiss are not known for making premature decisions so you can easily rule out 'second thoughts'

Saw RJ100s HB-IXU and HB-IXX in the new colours at LCY last week so there's a re-branding underway. Air France are in the same boat, there's no hurry as the colours are almost identical at first glance.
