New sparkling ambassadors in the global skies

Lufthansa 5-Star Skytrax

Lufthansa aircraft with 5-Star livery are favorites of spotter community

Only for very special occasions, like the German World Cup victory in 2014 with the “Siegerflieger”, Lufthansa changes the livery of their aircrafts. Since Monday a new rare opportunity has arisen in the form of the five-star-seal by Skytrax. A Boeing 747-8 long-haul aircraft and an Airbus A320 are now underway in a sparkling five-star look. Aircraft spotters in particular are therefore competing to include the aircrafts in their photo collections. For those interested here are some hints:
