Yes! It's true! First KLM gave us their 737-800 PH-BXA in retro livery and this August they will give us a 777-300ER in SkyTeam livery!!!!!!
Looks stunning! Picture in the source article (in Dutch only, sorry) here:

It's characteristic livery. It's not too bad though.  Smile
Do you have any larger image available?

Sorry, not yet. Picture is from source article. I'll try to get my hands on a better one, but can't make any promise.

Actually, I'd prefer if the airlines could keep their own tail, like SQ and with the oneworld livery.

I agree. They should've kept their own tails, and just have the fuselage with the ST scheme.

Why silver? Can't depict KLM logo. Also agree wish they kept the original tail design instead of copying Star.

I hope it's really gonna be silver (or bare metal look, AA style), better than that boring white on the DL 764... A silver colored 77W sure will be an awesome sight here at AMS  Smile

That livery is absolutely stunning. However, I think that the actual body color isn't as strong of a silver as pictured in the image. DL's is a lot more white. SO we'll see what happens.
So KLM is coming out, AF is due out in June. When are Aeromexico, Aeroflot, CSA and so on are scheduled to release?

Oh you name it, just use the photo search engine for STAR ALLIANCE and NETHERLANDS.

Yes i agree! I dont like the silver at all, i think they should of either used white (which would of looked nice) or keep the blue they already have and splash the Skyteam logo over the top, but definately not silver!

I'm not fond of these alliance liveries.... They just make the whole shape dull and unsavory to me (especially the star alliance one!)... Just my own point of view

I tend to like this Star plane and something that I think could be nice for either OneWorld or SkyTeam.

The DL SkyTeam livery is grey/silverish just as NW but slightly less silvery. In any case it's not white.

I freaking love these alliance liveries. Star is great. Sky is great. OneWorld is ok - but still, I like it.

My favorite of all time though:
