Airlines Imitating Each Other!

Tue Feb 13, 2001 11:56 pm

I've just noticed how strangely simillar the subtle colour schemes of Lufthansa and Iran Air are, they use almost exactly the same basic colouring and lettering plus a bird logo on the tail:

Can anybody think of any other airlines that have been heavily influenced by the style of another or colour schemes that have set a trend.

I guess the Iran Air/Lufthansa livery is a pure coincidence. But what do I know?  Smile

Exactly what I thought too, do we have E.S.P as I was going to do a post myself on this subject, note even the wings of the mythical flying horse "Homa" are like that of LHs "Condor" I think Germany is Irans favourite European country couldnt help but feel that way when I went to Iran three years back Smile
.....up there with the best!
