Lufthansa went with safe & boring for their new livery...navy and white with only one little residual yellow square on the fuselage. I miss the "yellow bird" on the tail already. Wonder how much it'll cost to repaint their fleet, and how long it'll take.

It's very plain and basic

Don't jump to conclusions. The new color scheme may be more fuel efficient.

Remember the '60's-'70's multicolored Northeast jets to Florida? The paint was heavy and wind resistant!

I thought we were supposed to complain about the price of checked baggage and the absence of peanuts.

Love that plane though. Boeing 747-8i.

Actually it doesnt look too bad. Lufthansa tends to be conservative

Looks kind of like FedEx paint scheme .

American Airlines a few years ago did a terrible design with new paint jobs on their aircraft.

I agree. It looks overdone. Most airlines now have poor livery designs. I like Alaskas Eskimo on the tail. Its a classic and I hope they dont change it.

Qantas just changed their kangaroo to a modern version and customers are calling it a sacrilege.

American wanted to stick with the familiar polished aluminum look, but you cannot polish some of these newer aircraft such as the 787 and the upcoming 797. So, they decided to paint it as close to the familiar polished look as they could get.

As for the livery, American allowed the decision between two designs to be made by the employees. The designs were the current one and the older AA emblem with an eagle silhouette. 60% of the employees voted to keep the current designs, a move supported by upper management as they are focusing heavily on moving away from old AA and USAirways logos in order to help employees move past the merger (which is still an obstacle for some).

I think a clear coat that shows the carbon fibre weave would be perfect.

Is it too much to ask that they have a 2nd color other than the navy blue? A little yellow on the tail would liven things up. That's my only objection. The look is clean and simple other than that, which I find appealing.

I read an article recently about the alleged identity of the Alaska "Eskimo"...is that even a socially-acceptable way of describing someone?!?

Earl Scheib for planes? I am sure the proper prep and paint to the mfgs specs will bring to light that again aircraft is a Latin word for expensive. I couldn't imagine the cost of a paint job. Then the cost to paint a fleet. !

The hospital where my wife works changed their logo recently, and costs involved with rolling out the new logo were staggering...signage, uniforms, printed materials, a coffee mug and duffle bag for every employee...I can't imagine the expense involved with rebranding an airline...

I doubt that any one with a life would care even an Inuit.
