Update: 1:50pm EST: Lufthansa's Director of Corporate Communications for the Americas, Nils Haupt, has tweeted a fresh photo of the plane, updated with the last-minute addition of "Siegerflieger" on the side. This term means "The aircraft of the winners," according to Haupt.
That's the aircraft for our soccer heroes - we'll fly them back today. Siegerflieger="The aircraft of the winners". pic.twitter.com/MxbmD9gStP— Nils Haupt (@nilshaupt) July 14, 2014
Even after the team has landed, passengers on upcoming Lufthansa flights will be able to join in the celebration. Not only has the airline repainted some A321s, A330s, A340s, and brand-new 747-8is as "Fanhansa," but they're serving up soccer-themed goodies onboard for a limited time.
Even Lufthansa's subsidiary Germanwings is celebrating on social media:
