First Eurowings 737 painted

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:22 pm

One of the TUI 737-800s operated for Eurowings has received the full livery. I didn't think they were staying around long enough to warrant the full paint job?

I like the fit, it’d be better with purple(whatever color the font is) engines.

Will they be applying the "last two" of the registration to the top of the tail on all the Airbii as well, currently none of those has this feature?

That might be an internal TUI thing.

Ok I forgot about the LH classic birds... but when did Austrian have 737-800?? That seems off, since they have a320s and used to have Fokkers, now replaced by Embraers

Austrian received -600s, -700s & -800s in a fleet swap with Lauda. Some A320s went the other way.

There was no "fleet swap" between Austrian and Lauda Air, they merged back in 2012, before Austrian then retired the "Lauda Air" brand in 2013

Until then no 737s had received Austrian livery and no A320s the Lauda scheme. Seems like a swap of sorts to me.

They merged into one airline with one fleet but two brands. Lauda Air for charter/holiday flights and Austrian for scheduled flights. Therefore hardly a fleet swap, when it was the same airline. It wasn't unusual to see Lauda 737s operate Austrian branded flights and Austrian A320s operating Lauda Air branded flights

Laura received their first A320 in 2005 and returned both (they only got 2) in 2008. Austrian didn't get their first 737NG until 2008 with a 73G (all NGs via Lauda), and they also briefly had a 733 and 732 (leased).

Was communicated, all LH Group airlines get white engines, to save on spare part/engine management.

Hey guys, I need your help on Eurowings fleet. I don't want to open a new thread, wish to continue building on this thread.

It seems like EW is offloading a lot of A320s at the same time bringing in as many. Anyone know what is happening? What is the fleet game plan? And there is Eurowings Europe? Any difference from "usual" Europe? Also why is there a need for TUI to operate 737 on EW's behalf? There are a lot of information out there, trying to sieve through seems futile.

Thank you in advance for any information.

Moving aircraft to Germanwings is also baffling.

Wasn't EW supposed to receive A321s also?

The TUI 737 lease agreement was somehow inherited from the AB deal. These aircraft were operating on a (very) longterm lease deal for AB.

Transfer of aircraft to Germanwings is a contractual matter. There is a scope clause agreed upon with the unions and LH. Thats also the reason why those planes aren't painted to EW colors and will remain in 4U-livery.

Wow, just the opposite to what IAG does.

- British Airways engines are painted in blue
- Aer Lingus ones in green
- Vueling could have been grey or yellow but opted for the latter.
- Level was born as a brand operated by Iberia, and shares the white engines, but that’s why IAG has....
- Iberia Express with the engines painted in red

Not useful, but funny :rotfl:
