LH will do two demo/marketing tours on Feb. 8th. across Germany/Europe.
Well, enough money available for that, but not for some yellow
Let's get more serious:
Most if not all legacy carriers are the "flag carriers" of their nation. Thus in my opinion they should still represent it to a certain extend, be it with colours of that nation, symbols or else. LH's old colour sceme a such didn't. It is connected with Germany due to the worldwide known brand Lufthansa and because it "was always there". With the redesign they missed a chance to make a change - not only that: The chance to mix it up with other airlines when looking at it from a greater distance is bigger now! They should have made it more outstanding as "german" - compared with LH-groups LCC-offshoot EW for example. Obviously they didn't take that under consideration...
Good examples of a representative design, that even the average person can connect with the country of origin without seeing or reading the titles are BA, SU, AZ, AA, HA (OK, not a legacy, but Hawaii-girl says ist all!). To a lesser extend LY, SQ, EI, AC (the toothpaste - the new one, hmmm
Not to forget AI with their palace windows that indicate the originating nation like hardly any other symbol. AFAIK there even was kind of a vote some time ago for keeping them - great!
KLM? No, regarding colours or symbols not representative for the Netherlands (well - except PH-BVA...).
And Eurowhite-designs still can have representative colours (+ symbols): AF, IB, SR, TK, OS, TP, QF, SA,...
CA's livery, as outdated it may be, at least has a relation to the (still communist governed!) Peoples Republic of China - like SU's similar looking fomer one did.

This is your pilot speaking. Welcome to flight one from here to there. We'll be flying at a height of ten feet, going up to twelve and a half feet if we see anything big. My copilot today is a flask of coffee.
