Who's better, SkyTeam, or Star Alliance?
DL and CO are the top two legacy carriers in the US right now, servicewise,...IMO. I don't fly many other international airlines. But with UA and especially US in Star, I am going to have to give my vote to SkyTeam....
Star Alliance- 0

the airline network for Earth...Star Alliance
Skyteam has ZERO presence in domestic Canada, whereas Star has AC.....not to mention Skyteam has a gaping hole in the South Pacific.......add 18 carriers, and you have one of the most extensive networks in the world....

Can't recall ever being more than 30 minutes late in over 100 flights with LH.
LH seem to have sorted LX out.
Infrequent trips with NH and OZ have been excellent.
They are the only one who have SQ; Sky Team don't have CX.
Sky Team: 3
Star Alliance: 6
Just my 5 RMB
PS They are not perfect, though. BD, and to a lesser extent, OS could be substantially improved.

For me it's Sky.
They offer more flights from regional airports in the UK than Star does, through KLM and Air France who allow me to connect on the continent to the rest of the world. In addition Continental operate transatlantic services to many smaller UK airport such as BRS and BHX which are idea for connecting the other way - in America. In addition, I find transferring at AMS is a breeze, CDG is dire mind you, and FRA is somewhere in between.
Sky Team: 4
Star Alliance: 6

Quoting Evan767 (Thread starter): DL and CO are the top two legacy carriers in the US right now, servicewise,...IMO
An alliance needs to be global. You can't be USA-Europe centric and serve business people all over the world. There's more to business travel than the USA and western Europe. Star truly covers the globe and provides as much service to the businessman in Cape Town, Bangkok or Sao Paulo as it does to the dude in Peoria.
STAR is light years ahead of the others in terms of services and network.

Star Alliance, the best alliance in the world with the worlds best coverage. No other alliance comes any where near Star's global status. Star Alliance will get you to where you want to go, if not to the exact airport, but to a nearby airport unlike OneWorld and Sky who have big holes in their world maps

I give my vote to Skyteam
I fly a lot within Europe on both AF/KLM and LH and AF/KLM is for me far more better then LH.
In addition, I've flown several times trans-atlantic (AF, CO, DL, UA & LH) : LH is good but UA is the worst with DL.
Mielage Plus program is a joke compared to Flying Blue
