My first flights were also with Condor in the 70s as a child, 747s to the US. I had to fly Condor to Cyprus several times around 2014-17 maybe, and I hope nobody ever thought of any nearness to Lufthansa. Unless of course, a very dirty cabin, absolutely disgusting toilets and careless crew are a sign of decency.

I guess one could say the only way is up for Condor.

The agency is not based in London. Even worse - it is based in Berlin.

I actually love it. Huge thumbs-up. Air Columbus reborn! And Condor has long been a fun airline, as their hilarious celebrity-lookalike safety videos testify. Check them out at that well-known video site Yew-Choob (my spelling will improve).

Interesting that we have seen two airlines adopt new liveries which give a unique look to each individual aircraft in recent weeks. Icelandair aircraft each feature a different coloured flash up the tailfin; now this with Condor.

I hope this is the new way to go for livery redesigns. RIP boring Eurowhite!

Like the Thomas Cook branding ‘uproar’ I give this livery 2 years at most before a further ‘refresh’ This idea of unique colours for each aircraft never lasts
Perhaps some marks however for not being Eurowhite. My eyes are still hurting, lets hope inside better (could be worse could be Transavia cabin!)

My first thoughts were - WTAF!?

Its grown on me however.

The whole point in a brand refresh is to get people talking… And it’s certainly achieved that.

Like others have said, at least it’s not another bland euro-white livery.

Probably one of the most memorably awful designs to grace the skies for some time. The Icelandair one with different colour flashes is, I think, quite classy and has direct relevance to the natural colours encountered in their home country. As for this? It's awful and the only redeeming feature is that it has at least started a conversation.

For all the talk of branding... it seems like somebody has forgotten a major point

THE GO FASTER STRIPES ARE POINTING THE WRONG WAY. IT WILL MAKE THE PLANE CRASH TO THE GROUND !

I don’t know about that but those stripes starting at the nose winding along the body and fanning out at the tail would have been so much more palatable. Different aircraft, different colour, no problem for me.

Lufthansa once proposed an almost all-yellow scheme.and painted a 737 to get people's reactions.

People's reactions were entirely predictable.

I worked for DLH back in the 90s...I always liked Condor as they were the 'lighter' side of the group and was a nice contrast to the sombre professionalism of LH...not only in livery but also in the crew atmosphere and that translated into a better flight experience.

The person/s who approved this livery should be shot.

Obviously conceived by a Glasgow based marketing firm who are football fans.

Was it designed by a prison inmate?

About 20 I believe and a couple of L1011's

Yes, as a part of the campaign, passengers will be given striped towels. Green for Comfort Class and Red for those in the back.
