A new livery for Lufthansa in 2018?
The current livery of Lufthansa aircraft was introduced in 1988. Since October 2017, it is rumoured that Lufthansa will introduce a new livery in 2018.
In the second week of February 2018, the new livery will be presented to the press. According to website SkyLiner, a Lufthansa Boeing 747-830 registered D-ABYA was ferried to Rome Fiumicino on 12 January. One of the newest jumbo aircraft will thus be painted into the new colour scheme.
In Lufthansa circles it is said that it will not be a dramatic redesign, but rather a refresher of the current design.
Update: on Sunday 21 January 2018, Lufthansa’s newest Airbus A350 rolled out of the final assembly line at Toulouse airport. The tail-fin, however, was wrapped in plastic. Fabrice Windus started photoshopping and thinks this will be the new livery:
