Interesting that in the color wheel of that page, one of the most prominent feature colors is.... BROWN.

I like it.
We'll see how it looks when they make a new livery out of grays, blues, yellows, and possibly brown (though I expect the browns will stay IN the cabin, rather than out).

The presentation of the new Business class featured some brown on the armrests, and some brown shades have been used in the Rimova 747-8 suitcase line. I guess the brown will appear in some of the higher class-related features, maybe also furniture in the lounges, but not much more.

The wavy line on the UA B787 makes it the worst looking aircraft type in their entire fleet. I really hate it. A straight line looks so much sharper.


Cheatlines look Soviet. Maybe mao-chic. It looks incredibly outdated and I am having trouble believing anyone complaining about KLM or UA's liveries (specifically on the 787 for UA) is under the age of 55.



hahaha!!! :lol: Here I am. Much younger than 55, and yes, strongly hating all these wavy silliness that IMHO will date in no time, and that looks 'cheap' and tacky.

It seems the shown concepts are so far not true at all. At the moment, there are no pictures or renders of the new livery available to the public. The D-ABYA will leave the painting-halls on 7th of February, that's probably the earliest date we can expect to get first REAL impressions. The official presentation will be somewhere in the week after.

Planned 2019: Nothing new so far, but another flight to HND and maybe some domestics in Japan will follow

That is a retro jet 747-8 that has been flying for some time now. It's not the new livery. Don't get excited.

Lufthansa.io :3

No seriously, I don't think the web address on their planes is a big deal. It's not like they are flying around with a huge telephone number billboard livery like Easyjet did in the early days.

The yellow will be gone from the livery. The logo will be silver on blue.
The yellow will only stay in the uniform. Sad cuz the LH hello was pretty iconic.

Hey this looks.... ok. Certainly better than the “Joon livery” with LH logos on it. The silver bordering the blue on the tail and read certainly helps add some more dimension, as do the blue engines

German news magazine "Der Spiegel" reports that it will be a "completely new corporate design" with much more blue and nearly no yellow, but the crane will only be "revised". The slogan "Nonstop you" will disappear as well. Additionally, the logo font will change from Helvetica to something else and the new design will be presented to employees on February 7th in Frankfurt and Munich.

The relevant passage from the 'Der Spiegel' article ( https://magazin.spiegel.de/SP/2018/4/155351680 ) reads as follows:

"Bei Mit­ar­bei­ter­fes­ten in Frank­furt und Mün­chen am 7. Fe­bru­ar sol­len die Neue­run­gen vor­ge­stellt wer­den. So­gar der welt­be­kann­te Kra­nich – ent­wor­fen vor ziem­lich ge­nau 100 Jah­ren von Otto Fir­le – soll leicht ver­än­dert da­her­kom­men. Auch die Schrift­art des Mar­ken­na­mens wird über­holt. Der Rumpf der Ma­schi­nen wer­de mehr Blau tra­gen, heißt es bei Luft­han­sa."

I've translated that below:
"The changes will be presented at employee parties in Frankfurt and Munich on 7th February. Even the world-renowned Crane, designed almost exactly 100 years ago by Otto Firle, (should/will*) also appear slightly changed. The font of the brand name will also be overhauled. The rear of the airplanes will wear more blue, according to Lufthansa."

*The use of the verb 'sollen' is a bit tricky in German - I think in this case it should be taken as an assertion that the crane will indeed be (slightly) changed.

It would be a shame if Helvetica is dropped, but the word "overhauled" could just mean in terms of positioning on the fuselage, color etc. I personally hope that the Helvetica stays (and it was featured prominently in the promotional video linked earlier in the thread), but perhaps it won't. If I've missed anything in the translation, I'm sure some of our German members could weigh in!

Well not really getting knickers in a twist if you ask me ... might be an interpretation but it does imho reach far beyond that - the livery should be (at best) the culmination/the essence of what your firm defines as its corporate identity

Going back to that ... Lufthansa and the relevant news outlets have been talking about only the livery. There hasn't been anything about the corporate identity and overall brand they want to have and why they consider the change necessary.

This very specifically talks about the font, not about the name or its placement being changed. Perhaps they finally realised that Comic Sans was the better choice after all? :wink2:


Interesting that none of the LH group airlines use the same font:

The color palette presented there implies that the yellow will stay. However, since the article has no date attached to it, I am not sure if it might have been from the A350 introduction.


Archive.org trawled that page fist June 19 2017. the frontpage was visited regularly over the full year including June 19 2017.
Thus good guess the page was published 18/19 June 2017

The verb "soll" can be translated in two ways:

It can mean »[The crane] shall appear slightly changed«, but in this case I think the correct translation would be »Even the worldwide known crane - designed almost exactly 100 years ago by Otto Firle - is said to become slightly modified».

The word »Rumpf« howerver doesnt mean tail, but rather fuselage.

So, »There will be more blue on the fuselage of the aircraft«.

Ah yes, 'Rumpf' is a so-called 'false friend!'. Thanks for the correction. Interesting then that the article does not specify where the blue will be on the fuselage. We have heard suggestions that it will be at the rear, extending down over the tail (as in the oft-cited Brazilian blog post). I did see a fairly plain-looking concept of a 747 with an all-white fuselage, gray engines and only the vertical stabilizer in blue with a silver crane. I can't find it now.

Either way, we shall just have to wait and see what Lufthansa unveils. I'm a little skeptical about a Brazilian blog somehow coming across the new livery before anyone else.

Also, it seems an Airbus A321 (D-AIDQ) will also get the new livery. I'm thinking the 747-8I will be unveiled in FRA on 07.02 (the ceremony for employees stars at 18:30 local time) and the A321 in MUC, same evening.

The wavy liveries are trendy, but not timeless. LH it's recognized by the representation of the german way and values. A livery as the LH it's a hard work to redesign, even if it's a light refresh. IMHO, LH must keep going the actual one. It's a livery that doesn't look dated.

Agree, that AC did a good job, but they went a little more retro-chic...if anything, they went back a couple decades to a time when the current LH scheme was first introduced. I also agree that LH's current scheme and branding are wonderful and in no need of touching up or refreshing. My fear is that change for the sake of change will result in something that is neither timeless nor elegant, and they will now enter into a period of livery 'updates' every decade or so like all the other majors.

As for QF - as far as I know, they didn't change anything other than the font on the fuselage, correct? Which was a very minimal change, at that.

No, they also changed/stylized the Roo and added silver/grey to the livery subtly

I think this one is entirely possible. It is pretty much the only concept or rumor around here that looks like a serious possibility for the new livery and the longer i look at it, the more i like it. The silver crane looks classy, the deep blue quite beautiful. Sure... lots of euro white, but i'd rather have the majority of a plane in white, than in some fancy color that looks cool for a couple of days but just weird after the novelty wears off.

I'm actually very anxious about changes fo the font. Helvetica - while some people find it boring - is absolutely timeless, and that in itself makes the font very elegant. Fonts matter much more than people normally realize. Lettering is so omnipresent and abundant in our daily lives, we often don't pay attention to the nuances. But some companies manage to tie a certain font to their brand name and Lufthansa and Helvetica are an example for that, so there's a lot at stake here.

True that! Look at Emirates and Porsche, which have their own iconic fonts. I'm also hoping this rendering is the closest one to the official thing.

If you zoom in very closely, it appears as though you can see the four lines which form the wing of the crane, the body below and the outline of a circle. If that is indeed the case, the crane appears to be quite small and placed quite low down on the vertical stabilizer. The color which can be seen on the tail also looks quite dark indeed.

LOOOL - That's a total giveaway. Airbus have ruined Carsten Spohr's surprise-party! :biggrin: :lol:

Perhaps LH will get this bird 50% off now for compensation? :white:

But what can be seen of the crane still looks pretty yellow to me? Could be my computer's nightshift messing up the color tho.

It's grey or white (hard to tell from this photo) with a dark blue tail (bit darker than the current one). As the rumours stated, it seems the yellow is gone from the tail. I also think the crane and the circle are thinner (maybe to go well with the changed "Lufthansa" font that people are talking about).

It's silver, for sure. I just saved the image and zoomed it up all the way.
Looks like they're keeping their dark navy blue, though. I'm hoping for silver "Lufthansa" with updated font, sort of like what QANTAS did with theirs. Now THAT would look classy!!

There are a million rumors, but yet nothing as good as the current one. QF and AC pulled it off, so I hope LH does, because their current branding is beautiful.


Agree, that AC did a good job, but they went a little more retro-chic...if anything, they went back a couple decades to a time when the current LH scheme was first introduced. I also agree that LH's current scheme and branding are wonderful and in no need of touching up or refreshing. My fear is that change for the sake of change will result in something that is neither timeless nor elegant, and they will now enter into a period of livery 'updates' every decade or so like all the other majors.

As for QF - as far as I know, they didn't change anything other than the font on the fuselage, correct? Which was a very minimal change, at that.


QF also cut off the arms of the poor kangaroo. But it kinda suits it.

If the crane really is there (and nothing else but pure blue on the tail), this is gonna be completely inbalanced! Will look awful IMHO!
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.

The logo on the tail fin not only looks as being almost white, it also is situated so deep on the fin that I by no means I can imagine this to look balanced in terms of the proportions of the tail fin:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio

Moreover the blue is so dark and cold that it seems to be much worse than the classic navy blue LH used to have for decades.

If it turnes out to be as bad as I fear by looking at this A350 tail fin, I only can hope that the LH staff and the public will start such a sh*t storm as 29 years ago when LH management tried to replace the classic LH-design with that weird Condor-style yellow LCC-livery.

Then and today the so-called design studios earned a hell of money (many hundretthousands, if not million of €uros) with the creation of this bullsh't... :mad:

The crane appears stylized but the position of those lines matches the current one almost exactly. A quick overlay looks something like this (using the current crane design):

Closer observation would appear LH have followed MH foot steps going with a dark tone and the crane is white :banghead: :roll: :?
