Perception of INTERFLUG abroad

Ungelesener Beitragvon Kilo Mike Sierra » Di 14. Dez 2010, 16:44

How was INTERFLUG perceived as an airline in other countries?

This question is not only about the airline's reputation in terms of punctuality, comfort, friendliness and safety. I would also like to know how the (almost eternal) paint scheme of INTERFLUG was rated.
A similar question applies to the flight attendant uniforms. Were they regarded as old-fashioned, timeless, modern or even fashionable and how did they compare to those of other airlines?

Most of this is in the eye of the beholder of course, but I would like to get some opinions here.

Das Thema Künstliche Intelligenz (KI) ist jetzt überraschenderweise auch von der Politik aufgegriffen worden.
Glaubt man dort, damit den Mangel an menschlicher Intelligenz kompensieren zu können?

Personally I think the last IF livery was one of the better euro-white schemes around - it didn't look like it was copied or inspired by any other livery which makes it very attractive - especially with the hammer and compass insignia on the tri-band. Was the base colour pure white or off-white? The Flight Attendant uniforms were very smart for the era - especially with the hat. Did IF have any male FA's? The tech-crew uniforms were also very smart with the yellow/green shirts - a nice change from white! It would be very interesting to chat with ex-IF cabin crew about their training - especially emergency procedures as I used to be an instructor and have flown on the Airbus. I never had the pleasure to fly IF but I always assumed they would have been very punctual and efficient - this is the image we had of them in Australia. A bit different to Aeroflot (who did fly to SYD for a short time with IL-62's and A310). I would like to have seen the last IF livery on some of the Soviet aircraft (although I have a model of a TU-204 in this scheme) it would have looked smart on a TU-154 or Il-96M!

Has anyone thought what an Interflug advertising campaign would look like if they were around today? How would IF present itself to the world? A new slogan or perhaps a piece of music? I certainly hope they wouldn't have changed their livery. I remember soon after the Soviet Union went out of business and Aeroflot were trying to re-brand themselves - they had (apparently) a billboard advertisement that said "We don't smile because we are serious about making you happy!" Ansett Australia had to change their marketing when they started flying international routes - apparently in Chinese characters the word "Ansett" roughly meant "unhappy death!" (or so the story goes...) I think IF would have used a classical piece of music as their signature.....but which one?
