According to Lufthansa, the 747-400 that landed in Frankfurt yesterday after spending a few weeks in a paint shop is sporting a slightly new look as compared to the new livery released a few months ago.
You may recall that Lufthansa walked back its decision on the new livery after realizing that the blue used in the design was too dark in some environments.
The newly painted D-ABVM flew to Toronto today after rejoining the fleet sporting the new look. Not only is the Blue of a different tint, the Crane on the tail was enlarged to help identify the airline from a distance.
Lufthansa released the following video showing ‘VM’s arrival in FRA:
Our first #B747-400 with the new #Lufthansa design is heading for Toronto. We are curious how D-ABVM will look when it arrives in Canada, especially now that it has the optimized blue paint and a larger crane. #ExploreTheNew pic.twitter.com/E5PfYYb95c

Lufthansa did say that this is not necessarily the final version of the new livery, but rather a test sample to see how the aircraft looks under a variety of ‘real world’ environments.
