The FB photo is clearly photoshopped. -- and on the FB page there is the actual photo in the current livery.

From that direction, the dividing line between the blue rear section and the white fuselage section would not be a straight line but a bowe, something like this:

Thanks for that. I hope that LH will paint the engine cowlings. That dull grey should at least be white or blue. We will know what they have decided on in a few days.

As much as I like this livery, I don't see it happening. Lufthansa will never use the crane without the circle. Basic branding rules.

Here's my two cents:
The top one is following rumours that the new livery is an evolution rather than a revolution, keeping the silver belly but adding blue
The bottom one is an updated version the rumoured liveries to include the silver on the vertical stabalizers as well as make the crane logo smaller. Although I still thinks it screams Airbus....

Apologies for the poor lighting in this photograph, but I've shared it as an example of how the silver crane has already been incorporated into the Lufthansa brand. In this case, on a Business Class mug.

German Qantas from the look of it. If LH goes in this direction (yes, I know the picture is fake), it would help to paint the belly blue or silver.

I would assume, they will try to define the same color for expensive spare parts for all Lufthansa group airlines. That would make spare part management easier. If true, the engine color would not be customized....The sharklet could be an exception, I assume it is not damaged as often as an engine cowling.

Perhaps in principle, but the new livery of Austrian Airlines includes red engine cowlings, while those of Eurowings (also a relatively new scheme) are gray. The Lufthansa Group is, however, taking steps to standardize the interiors of their A320 aircraft. See: viewtopic.php?t=1384795
Even then, however, the individual brand of each airline will be preserved within the cabin. And of course on the exterior.

A Lufthansa representative confirmed that the new livery will feature new titles more than a week ago.

Also: The leaked livery with the black tail was known before it "got leaked".
I guess the picture only showed the tail so no one sees the new titles yet.


Do you have a link to back up the claim that the titles will be changed? The only suggestion I've found about that is in a Spiegel Article which is linked earlier in this thread and seemed to be written in a more speculative style than anything else.


Well, yes my source is the Spiegel article. I have contacted the author and he assured me that Lufthansa confirmed it.
He and Spiegel are reliable sources.

Thanks for the confirmation. Although I can speak German, I am not a native speaker, so I wonder if you could just explain whether the wording of the Spiegel article suggests anything to you as a native speaker which I am not picking up. Specifically: "Auch die Schrift­art des Mar­ken­na­mens wird über­holt". I'm unsure of whether it simply means that the color, size and positioning of the word 'Lufthansa' will be changed, or that the font itself will be changed from Helvetica. It's just the use of the word 'über­holt' which is slightly confusing. It doesn't quite have the same connotations for me as would 'geändert' or even 'ausgetauscht'.

Schriftart means typeface/font. So when they say the Schriftart will change, that nearly certainly means a change away from Helvetica.

I've been watching this thread for weeks now. Anxiously looking for leaks and any ideas on the new livery. I agree that it's going to be a move towards standardizing LH group liveries in the future, which means a boring livery. Why they want to change the iconic and timeless logo is beyond me.

Thanks everyone for your photos and mock-ups! They have kept me entertained!!

Yes, even the retro birds D-ABYT and D-AIDV have that, because the special permission is per registration and not linked to the livery.

Seriously though. Not a lot of people outside of this forum really remembers Interflug.
Those who remember didn't have the money to fly them in the East and those who had the money in the West never flew them.

It's not a big change, but not as good as their current livery.
