...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Ciao to all my friends.
Lufthansa, one of the most important airlines of the world, adopted the current livery in 1988 and, while many other airlines changed livery many times, Lufthansa continued to wear its airplanes with the current white and blue colors.
Lufthansa livery is very often considered the mother of the various "euro-whites", a way to indicate liveries whitout fantasy, colors and particularly articulated drawings, but many other people think that Lufthansa did not change or refresh its livery because it is simply perfect, a real brand for one of the most important and successful airlines of the world.
What do you think?

Here some examples:

I've always considered Air France to be the "mother of Euro-white" not LH.

I really like their scheme... it's classy and timeless. I hope they don't change it.

Lufthansa's current livery is really nice. But if they decide to change, I hope it's something like the first concept. The other two are too big of a change in my opinion

DutchCollector 08-01-2017 06:15 AM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Lufthansa's livery is still very elegant and really fits them. I hope they'll keep this livery, or either go 'Hawaiian Airlines' on their new livery. If they go full 'Iberia' on their stylish livery...

I just hope that they don't go with a livery that is LCC-ish. Or like something that looks like China Eastern.

Charter, Austrian airline portals were picking up your post from the last year recently. What they missed was though, that all you posted was more like "fan art" than actual designs. But since they are talked about, here's my two cents:

No. 1.: Nice one, even classy - with the tail coloring slightly reminding one of El Al or Thai. Since rumors are that it will not be a re-design but some fine-tuning, it even seems realistic.
No. 2.: Gosh, my four-years-old nephew would have coloured the contours of that poor A319 nicer. Was that the work of a kid?
No. 3.: Too dark. I mean, WAY TOO dark. And besides, it reminds one too much of the current TUI "wave".

I for one loooove swooshes. If they go with something like the first one or the last one Charter posted, I would be very happy. I don't like this "rule" that flag carriers and full service airlines need to be mostly white, and only LCCs get to have colourful planes.

Robin 01-16-2018 04:12 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
The rumours I have heard is that silver is gonna be represented significantly in the new livery/tweak of the current livery. There's a B747-8 currently being resprayed (in the new livery) at Rome FCO

All terrible or not fitting a legacy and national carrier like LH. The blue wave one ok, but not for a carrier like LH.
The crane has to stay in a yellow circle and not some fancy stuff with it done....

I vote for using this livery, either with the silver belly or the grey one, I dont mind.
It still fits to all their aircraft apart from A380. Flying Lufthansa almost every week and I DO care if my flag carrier looks like rubbish Iberia or if remains a statement and a carrier i would always recognize again and feel home when I board.

There is no "rule" about it as Iberia and Alitalia prooved in the past. That livery was fitting them well. For Lufthansa is a bit different, conservative Airline, northern Country. No south european motivated swooshes or lot of colours...

I don‘t like this new livery, but there is written:

Two aircraft, the Boeing 747-8 D-ABYA and an A321 D-AISQ with the new paint (white fuselage and silver color replacing yellow) will be presented (as below, with 99% certainty)})

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Sad to see this change (if its true). I really liked the Gray/Yellow colour combination, its how you identified the brand. But seeing the economy on the A350 being blue/silver, it is highly likely.

bahamut_zero 01-18-2018 03:20 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Based on the pictures, it looks Qantas inspired.

I just wished that there are some other colors like the yellow. But I'm keeping my hopes up since ABYA will be the one who will first carry that new livery.

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
If Lufthansa MUST change their livery, the silver and blue is the least offensive to my eye.

The yellow should be retained but silver and blue is the lesser of many evils. I also wouldn't be opposed to adding that livery to my display since it will be a 747-8. We will see soon enough! :sweatdrop:

Same here. Sooner or later it will be on the whole fleet. :) But there should be a hint of yellow in the new livery.
I do agree that I will wait for the 1:400 version of it since it is Brandenburg

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Well... we'll only know for sure if someone leak photos of the real plane or if we wait until the 747-8 be rolled out at FCO.

None of all these concepts look OK for Lufthansa IMHO, and they shouldn't even change their scheme. It's classy, it's totally classy, it's absolutely classy.
One of the most serious, elegant and low-profile liveries of the sky. Fits perfectly to one of the most important flag carriers of the world.

This livery presented at this Brazilian blog is absolutely boring, tasteless, too simple. Reminds me of Joon or maybe Airbus House Colors. Simply disgusting.

I guess we have to hold our breathes till February.

If it a,isn’t broke why fix it, I really think the current one is very elegant specially on B747-8, wonder why they’re changing it, change for the sake of change is pointless...

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Lufthansa can't wear its airplanes with a "stupid" livery because since 1988 they have (had) a livery that is a real heritage, the same for other iconic airlines like British Airways.
I hope Brazilian website, giving the image of new Lufthansa livery as 99% true, is not right!

I'm have to say I disagree with you there, Charter. The Alitalia is just kind of 'meh.' AA has grown on me, but not a whole lot. Etihad? Geez, that's even worse than JAL! :(

Why did they do away with the yellow? That color has been there with them for ages. And it is the color most people associate with Germany nowadays.

Looks to me that someone did a quick photoshop of an A350 from an inflight magazine or something using the tail picture from the factory. You can clearly see blue splotches on the tail and the wing root has obvious grey paint left over from the now old livery. Don’t be “vomiting” yet; let’s wait for an official Lufthansa announcement before we get our hopes up (or down).

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Might as well leave them in the Airbus colours, look pretty much the same if these photos are in fact the new livery. To be honest, I kind of like it, it radiates a business/premium feel by removing the yellow and darkening the blue. I am sure many of you disagree because a lot of you guys are Europe based and you likely have memories with the blue and yellow livery and reminisce those times, I however never remember seeing a Lufthansa aircraft in the flesh other than the 748 that came to Sydney a couple of years ago, which was amazing. I do not see why Lufthansa is changing their livery. Usually this is because of a change in leadership or and emerging from ashes or something of the like but Lufthansa as far as I can see has nothing too important in the books until the 77X is introduced in the early 20's. I will be traveling on them when I go to Europe in June and by then there should be a couple of a/c in the new livery so I might make a judgment between the two then but for now, I welcome the change.

It looks like it is what we saw....getting regular mails due to my Frequent Flyer Membership from LH.
I noticed in today's mail in the Background style of mails have changed.
They show blue and silver, no more yellow. I wish this is only a co-incidence, but fear it is not....

This livery, if it comes, is just plain boring. If choosing silver and dark blue, which is nice....you could have made a lot more out of it. This is simply meaningless.

There was a picture going on around Facebook about a picture of D-ABYA being accidentally shown with the livery that was shown here with the Qantas-ish tail.

Okay, lets say for the moment that this image is indeed that of the new livery. Seriously...is it really that bad? Is the loss of the yellow crane in favor of a silver one really worth getting all bent out of shape for (and this coming from someone who generally dislikes any new livery).

I mentioned this before; if Lufthansa feels it MUST make some changes to its style, this one looks rather nice. It is still simple, professional, elegant and respectful of its predecessor. This supposedly new livery reminds me of the approach Cathay Pacific took with their new look...which everyone praised.

If this does indeed get revealed as the new livery, it's worth remembering that it could have been much, much, MUCH worse. The day will come when my beloved United Airlines will see the need to revamp its imagery and I can only hope that whatever design that may be I will be able to say "it's a good thing they followed Lufthansa's example".

My problem with this is that it feels like there is no color balance. It's just so incredibly white. A colored underbelly would have made it look a lot more balanced. Also, I may be wrong but are Lufthansa doing away with names for aircraft? If so that is incredibly tragic. I wish airlines would keep a nautical culture, instead of adopting a greyhound culture.

Something like this would have been classy. The reason I am so attached to the Yellow is because it has always been the color that symbolized Lufthansa, along with blue. Taking yellow out of the Lufthansa livery would be like taking red out of Virgin. If Lufthansa replaced the yellow rather than just elimited it, I would have been perfectly fine. I was a bit against the new Alaska livery as it felt so ridiculously different to Alaska's old identity, but just yesterday I saw an Alaska plane with the new livery flying over my town and thought: "That livery looks smart". Change is not always bad, but change needs to be done right. (On a side note, writing this mini essay is how I spent time that was supposed to be used researching Malaysia, one of the worst documented countries I have ever found, I am going to fail in life lol)

Confirmed, Inflight Magazine says it as well. :thumbdown:

You dont need a designer spending millions for this....when flying Lufthansa next time, I will say I dont like it if we get a Chance. Will be flying the next 4 weeks about 10 times with them and I am surprised how much they listen to their FTL's or Senators. Maybe we see an Air India effect. The yellow always gave that Branding a bit of warmth in the otherwise quite cold livery.

It's bad in my opinion because the previous one was not only already elegant and classy, but also a simple design. They made it even more simple now... and it feels cheap. This is not a livery which people will remember.
It looks like a copycat of UTA, Royal Airlines, Joon, Airbus House Colors... see? No inspiration at all.
The yellow at the tail was very striking against the blue background. Now the silver makes it still look elegant, yes, but now rather dull.

The absence of the grey belly and engines leave the plane too white... hmmm, just like almost every other airline out there. If you line up Air France, China Eastern, Lufthansa, Finnair, Japan Airlines, etc without seeing the tails, you'll only see a bunch of white planes with just different titles and nothing else. This is too generic, too booooring! :yawn:

I do agree that computer rendition is rather boring since they used two cool colors and it is still the same typeface.

Ah well, fair enough. You guys like it the way it was ...and so do I. One thing is certain...you're all going to have to get used to it! :confused:

Can't wait for Herpa to fast track a model of it!

I have found this interesting. When American, Southwest, Alaska and even Etihad changed their liveries I was opposed...yet just about everyone here loved the new look.

Does this mean Lufthansa Regional/CityLine will get a rebrand too?

THIS is NOT Lufthansa anymore.... :pinch: Yellow had been on the planes since 1955 in one way or the other....it has been in the flag since the start.

and no, it will not grow on me more over the days and years....to simple, cold and meaningless. These colours could be fitting and elegant in a different manner on the aircraft, but leaving so much White like fuselage and engines....sucks.
QF is something different, as their red reflects a warm colour. This livery has no warmth at all. Silver/Blue fits nicely in interior, but exterior is difficult and this livery is no success. I guess majority will not like it in Germany....maybe they will re-think again (I hope).

It wouldn't be the first time. Remember the 737-200 with yellow tail and belly?

Yep Allan. That was interesting, but fitted more to Condor for example....

I also keep Air India or the World Tails in mind, where the critics made them change again.
For me really simple, this typical yellow tone belongs to Lufthansa somehow.
That change is too radical.I fly Lufthansa almost every week and will keep doing so, but this will not change me disliking it.

How I wish Lufthansa could also go back to their regular colors.
Opinion of people at Facebook have been extremely negative, fortunately!
Lufthansa should really be ashamed of this.

Its not the worst new livery in the world, but I think Lufthansa corporate erred too much on the side of caution and conservatism. I too miss the yellow, and those pure white engines are so blah.

I'd like to see someone photoshop those engines blue like the tail and see how that compares to reality.

bahamut_zero 02-03-2018 10:26 AM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
I see that they retained the name on the 1st door of Brandenburg.

It's okay. It's not something that I would really rave out. As I have said at the back, the yellow could be inserted on the lining of the tail to the bottom and blue engines could have worked.

The tail portion is fine but the front, it's too bland.

I absolutely cannot unsee this. Goddamnit Budgie, you ruined their livery even before the designers ruined it.

I agree that the version with blue engines look better, but still look bland... and now remind me of the United Charter 747-400 :confused:

This Lufthansa livery is terribly bad in my opinion.
What a way to ruin a corporate image.

Yes, it's a joke... I was making fun of this minimalist trend of nowadays. I hate it.
Lufthansa now joins Finnair, Japan Airlines, China Eastern Airlines and others who basically decided to ditch their great liveries in favor of uninspiring and dull images.

Planes are now nothing more than titles + logo.

bahamut_zero 02-03-2018 02:23 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
I do agree that the blue engine somewhat eases the look of the livery to somewhat passable. But I think we are all missing the color yellow in the livery.
There should be at least some hints of that yellow in the livery.

furryforest 02-03-2018 02:24 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
What's the obsession with yellow? I don't mean that neagtively but a lot of people are hung up on it. Is there a particular link between yellow and Lufthansa?

Yes, it's basically Lufthansa's color and have been present on the livery since the 1950s!

Speedbird 48 02-03-2018 03:07 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
Honestly whilst it is a huge loss for the company, I could live without the yellow, what really irks me is the total lack of balance in the paint scheme. Dark blue, silver, and white are not a bad combination, but the way Lufthansa did it is just awful. There is no balance whatsoever. Literally the only color is on the tail. Plain and simple the livery sucks. I think I will try my hand at Photoshop and see what I can do. Maybe extend the blue so instead of wrapping around the fuselage it makes a sort of bubble just before the upperdeck?

Speedbird 48 02-03-2018 03:29 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
I combined a couple ideas I saw on Anet, I think this looks half decent

Personally think the yellow stripe on the vertical tail fin is a misfit on that one, but I really like that livery apart from that!

I agree with leo that it is part of the identity of Lufthansa, just like with BA's speedbird and Philippine Airlines's tricolor and sun.

It's like a part of the soul of the airline. I'm getting cheesy here.

Nice photoshop my friend! I could live with the silver crane as long as there is a yellow stripe on the tail. :)

I see that they did not include the website on the tail which was on ABYA before.

I don´t like the new livery. I can´t help. Just replace the crane with a dove and it would look like a mixture of a funeral service & NIVEA. :icon_sad:

You know what scares me now? The morons at IAG might decide that BA needs a new livery and ruin one of the best paint schemes in the skies. Honestly I don't know if we should care about that at this point. Alex Cruz destroyed the real BA long ago, now it's basically Easyjet+.

Saw her yesterday live twice....still...not impressed and the majority of feedback I heard from people or staff was negative. Too cold, missing the yellow, Looks like a funeral card were just a few comments. I wouldnt be surprised they will revise somehow...

Lufthansa A321 D-AISP: first flight with the new livery Munich - Milan "Malpensa".
http://www.varesenews.it/photogaller...58.610x431.jpg


According to Lufthansa (i receive the newsletter because i am Lufthansa Miles & more member) the welcome of employees, passengers and customers is for the great majority positive. The most criticisms are about the lack of the historical yellow, but Lufthansa answers that the yellow is missing on the livery because it is something of particular and it is present on the tickets, lounges, inside cabin, ground and cabin crew uniforms etc.

levideson102 02-09-2018 01:33 PM

Re: ...and if Lufthansa would decide to change livery?
 
That is a much better livery IMO. A hint of yellow and some paint on the undercarriage works wonders, than just a white body
