According to Airliner World Magazine, any airline joining, or seeking to join the Star Alliance group, would have to paint 9 of their airplanes with Star Alliance colors. Has this always been the case? Do other airline alliances require this?

No, this has not always been the case. It was rumoured that there was a certain percentage of the fleet that had to be painted in Star Alliance colours.

Most Star Alliance members are far from nine aircraft in a Star livery, I wonder how this could be a prerequisite then?

No other alliance has a promotional paint scheme at the moment.

Doesn't Adria Airways officially join Star Alliance tomorrow? It's going to become difficult for them to paint 9 aircraft in Star Alliance colours, as their fleet consists of only 8 aircraft...
