A Boeing 747-400 featuring the scheme arrived in Frankfurt yesterday and will be used to operate a Toronto service today.

The German carrier describes the updated colour as “optimised blue”. It appears to have a purplish tinge.

The testing of a brighter paint comes after several commentators noted that the new livery seemed to darken to black in certain lighting.
