The big picture: Germanwings receives first aircraft in new livery

Germanwings has received its first aircraft painted in the carrier’s revamped livery, ahead of the launch of the “new Germanwings” next year.

The Airbus A319 feature the yellow of the carrier’s parent company Lufthansa with the familiar Germanwings purple.

The carrier has been repositioned to operate all of Lufthansa’s domestic and European non-hub flights.

The new Germanwings officially launches on January 1, but Lufthansa customers will not start to see changes to the onboard seating product until around July next year.

  • This is how airlines save. They move all domestic, short and medium haul flights to low cost carriers where margins are thin but salaries lower. They retain the more expensive and well trained staff on mainline, long haul traffic where the big money is made in business and first classes and cattle class pays the bills. Clever. Lufthansa will survive when BA will fail.
