Lufthansa is Pointlessly Updating its Paint Job

Article By:

Lufthansa has been teasing a new livery for a few weeks now. We finally have our first look at the new paint job. Here’s what Lufthansa’s fleet will look like going forward:

As a point of comparison, this is Lufthansa’s current livery. I’m happy it’s keeping the crane and all, but what’s the point of spending all the money needed to update your entire fleet and push the PR marketing for such a minor and meaningless change? They should have just kept it as it was. The yellow was so much more distinctive than the white.
