Lufthansa has confirmed that it will adjust the new livery after seeing it in action over the past few weeks.
The biggest criticism that most people had was that the Blue on the tail was too dark, and would look black in many cases. Lufthansa agrees and has decided to modify the Blue to be a lighter color that will reflect as a proper blue in most daylight conditions.
No time frame has been set as Lufthansa wants this update to be the last one for a long time. I suspect it will be several weeks of trial and error before they settle on the final shade of blue.
When I saw it in Frankfurt, it was fine in direct sunlight, however in any overcast condition, the blue did indeed become very dark and unless you knew the tail was supposed to be blue, it would be easy to mistake it for a black tail.
So when all is said and done, what matters most is that my ‘Herpa’ desktop model of the original, darker new livery has just become an instant collectors item! 🙂
