As has already been pointed out in terms of the location of the design agency and the less than typically Germanic approach . One word sums it up BERLIN . if theres a different way to do things they will do it, the only surprise to me is that the Berlin people didnt want to paint the entire aircraft black to mirror the fashion tastes of the ladies of that great city.

From a marketing perspective it is certainly different and it has made people talk and they are both positives. Do the stripes go all the way around

Nice to have a small diversion from some of the sadly far more serious events around.

Plastic wraps are all the rage on trains and motor vehicles, just out of interest is anyone wrapping aircraft ?

The Court Line 1970s scheme was very well done, right across the organisation, with progressive shades/hues of the individual colour down the aircraft, and also across the rest of the organisation - flight attendant uniforms were in the same style, the motor transport fleet, etc.

Said to be based in turn on the 1960s Braniff scheme, but that I always felt was boring in comparison, just a single matt aircraft colour all over.

At Court there was a fourth colour, violet, introduced after the first three.

There was an amusing Court Line story of an initial meeting at the BAC One-Eleven factory at Hurn, between the design team and the BAC paint shop foreman. On one side were the bearded designers, driven down from London in a rainbow-painted Mini, and came in with Afghan coats which were stylish for some at the time. Across the table was the good old long-serving foreman, in workshop brown coat, and likely ex-RAF from 25 years before. Mediating were the BAC sales team in suits in the middle, and Court Line management. Despite the cultural clash, the paint shop did a tremendous stylish job on the aircraft.

Unfortunately stylish is not a word I can use about the Condor scheme.

Germans will be first up, and throw their towels over each jet to reserve them for the rest of the day!
