Lufthansa’s first aircraft to sport the new livery arrived in Hamburg earlier this morning where she’ll get a refresh of the economy cabin before being introduced officially to the public next week.

‘D-ABYA’, Lufthansa’s first 747-8i, arrived from Rome where she was repainted into the new LH colors.    The interior work that will take place in HAM will reflect the new direction that Lufthansa is taking with interior colors.   Passengers will be greeted by warmer and lighter blue tones similar to the color scheme found aboard the A350 aircraft.    Over time, all aircraft will have their interior reworked into the new look.

These are some of the latest photos that Lufthansa has published showing D-ABYA’s arrival from ‘FCO’.   She’ll be in HAM for a few days and then flown to Frankfurt sometime on Tuesday.


Looks quite dark in the overcast conditions. I wish they had applied a similar angle treatment to the engine covers to make the middle of the aircraft ‘pop’ a bit more.

Parked at the Technik hangars in Hamburg

Looking pretty good!
