South African Airways has recently handed out a booklet pertaining information about their pending application to join the Star Alliance, with in the booklet includes details of what still needs to be completed and what has already been completed in order for them to join Star Alliance.

They said they had to complete 65 major changes, in order to meet the requirements of the alliance.

Also their is a new logo on it's way. Very similiar to the current one but slightly altered.

I will scan a copy of it tomorrow and post it on here. They also show a few of the other logos they thought about.

P.S. More info to come tomorrow.

The current livery on the A346's that pass through here (ATL) are beautiful!

Did they mention, when they will become a full member of the alliance?

I will be travelling to South Africa for work in March and would like to fly on SAA, but if they haven't joined by then, I'll have to take Lufthansa.

You still will be able to do so as SA and LH code-share on all South Africa to Germany flights. No need to wait for Star Alliance.

Plus, SA is better than LH in my opinion Big grin

It's not a pending application - the application was accepted last year, they'll be joining in April.

SAA changed their logo a few months after the present scheme was adopted and not many people noticed, originally the logo was rectangular, now it is in the shape of an aircraft tail. I'm flying SAA on Thursday, hopefully I will also get this information booklet.

Okay, quicker than I thought I have the booklet in my hands (it helps having a staff member in the house) and my first look was at the new logo. I like it. Those familiar with the current SAA logo (see here) http://ww4.flysaa.com/saa_home.html will be happy to know that the change is pretty subtle. The line extending from the base of the tail is gone, now below the tail is the text "South African Airways" in the same font as before, underlined. Below the line" "A Star Alliance Member" with the Star logo. The tail is also shaded to give a 3D illusion.

Quoting Ibhayi (Thread starter):
They also show a few of the other logos they thought about

I think those other 6 in the booklet are actually alternate versions of the new logo that will be used where appropriate and where background colour or size constraints exist.

According to the booklet the current SAA logo didn't lend itself to incorporation with the Star Alliance logo and having seen the new one I tend to agree. It's really not that much different.

Before I saw SAA's website I always thought SAA flies to more destinations then the ones they have on their website. I thought SAA flies to India, Japan, Korea and mainland China especially to the north also I thought they fly to AKL. They don't really fly alot to these places except the ones they do fly to.

Too bad the fuselage is so extremely Euro white...if inly it were as colourful as the tail it would be the bst one around !

I wish that I could, but it seems that Air Canada isn't up to speed with the rest of the alliance. When I checked SAA's website, it showed that most of the *A carriers have mileage accrual agreements with SAA, but AC wasn't listed anywhere.  Sad

HanginOut (hopefully, in SA in early March)

SA service BOM on a daily basis. They used to fly to KIX years ago, but the service was terminated - IIRC it was an extension of the SA HKG flight. With regards to ICN, SA will codeshare with OZ on the HKG-ICN-HKG sectors.

SA has a reciprocal codeshare agreement with QF to Australia. SA serves JNB-PER-JNB, while QF serves JNB-SYD-JNB.

South Africa is really hot, painting an aircraft white safes you a lot of energy for the Airco system.

IIRC someone mentioned on the forum that SA would be moving from T3 to T4 at JFK. Can anybody confirm this move and when it is due to happen?

I asked my wife and her boss confirmed that SAA will move to the UA terminal at JFK when they join Star. There is also a very good chance that the switch from ATL to ORD will take place.

SAA officially join Star on April 1 (not an omen I hope, being April Fool's day and all...)

I didn't feel like starting a new thread for this, but I have it on good authority that you can expect to see a Star Alliance 744 soon...

25 9252fly : Any word about painting the Star Alliance livery on the narrow-body fleet? It would look interesting on a SA 738!

30 Rj777 : Well, are we gonna see it or not? Where's the revised logo?

35 SAA201 : The JNB-KIX flight went via SIN and BKK, depending on the day (not HKG!)
36 Post contains images SA7700 : I will take your word for that SAA201, thanks. I can't find the applicable "KIX timetable" amongst all my old SA timetables. I guess it is lurking so
37 SAA201 : Ja, same here! It would have been somewhere between about 1996 and 1998. Will let you know if I find the schedules!
38 SAA201 : Raided some old boxes today and lots of dust and sweat later emerged with some timetables between Mar 1997 and Mar 1999 with the KIX flights schedules

40 Andz : There is already a codeshare in place with UA so I guess the DL agreement is to end soon.
