1. all-white wings: unique among airlines, and it will make LH planes even more recognizable from the ground than the "Spiegelei" did. I never understood why airlines do not treat the wings as part of the livery. Its great LH does so and it really underlines the airlines well-founded premium approach perfectly!
2. the new blue is a very classy shade.
3. the white leading edge of the tailfin with the smart curve at the top.
4. the new font/titles. Subtle, timeless, yet efficient and modern evolution of the ages-old Helvetica.
Its these fine details which make a classy livery out of a basically unexciting design. I am usually not a big fan of overly simple liveries, and I dislike JAL and especially China Eastern who have no such smart details at all in their designs.
The old livery now appears indeed old to me. I only still miss a bit of yellow somewhere.
Imho, overall the LH redesign has been very well executed.
I noticed the wings and wondered if they were really white or if it was just the lighting.
I think the white wings are a great touch. Looking forward to seeing new livery in person
If I´m not mistaken,
the wings have always been white, at least on the upper surface, the lower being painted the same shade of grey as the belly and engines.
In this respect LH has always had a very well thought and executed livery.
