LH's ARJ's: Lufthansa Regional Title But LH Tail?

Tue Mar 15, 2005 12:54 am

Hello all,

last Saturday I saw a LH ARJ with "Lufthansa Regional" titles at DUS (I didn't see the registration because I sat in a plane myself and had no window seat), this ARJ didn't have the LH Regional tail but the regular LH tail:

Since when do LH's ARJ's wear the Lufthansa Regional titles? This is the first time that I saw an ARJ in this livery.

Was this a hybrid livery and do the ARJ's also get the LH Regional tail or will they fly with the Regional titles with a regular LH tail? If yes, why do they keep the regular LH tail?

The CL and EN brands are considered strong enough to partially remain visible. So this is the standard livery for CL, no hybrid.

Hey Patrick as we are a 100% LH company we will keep the "Kranich" but get the regional titles this thing was discussed a lot within CLH but finally the management thought a mixed livery would be great. In my oppinion this whole LHR thing is ridiculous and will go down like LH Express a couple of years ago.
The same is with our CRJs they will keep the "Kranich" aswel!
For you info current repainted are RO/RJ/RK for 100% not sure about RI and RH

regards Björn

This is the "new" livery for all LH Cityline aircraft. I didn´t even know that one was repainted already. So thanks for raising this question.
All other LH regional planes except Air Dolomiti´s have or will have the "dotted curtain" tail (representing a stylised route map full of destinations).

Hey Björn, I didn't see you for a long time here on A.net!

Thanks for the information! You are correct, the LH Regional thing is indeed ridiculous, shame that brands like Eurowings and Lufthansa Cityline disappeared, now they are only visible on a micro-sized sticker on the aircrafts.
