It looks like DL has painted a third 752 (N705TW) into the SkyTeam livery. I wonder, why would DL have three 752s in SkyTeam livery? I understand that DL is the largest 752 operator in the world, however, DL should have a little more variety in choosing SkyTeam livery aircraft. Other than the three 752s, DL has a 738, 763ER, and 764ER in SkyTeam livery. If I would choose the next SkyTeam livery aircraft, I would choose either a 753 or an MD-90.

It likely has something to do with where the aircraft get seen. The 752's are used on many, many routes - but the 753 and MD90 comparatively fewer. The 752 even does TATL, those others are strictly USA/Canada and maybe Mexico/Caribbean.
US and CO also have Star Alliance logos mainly on planes that fly further afield, but also on a relatively small number of North-America-only aircraft.

There was only to be one 757 in Skyteam. The other two were painted in the new livery by a contract shop and the paint job sucked. When they were redone at DL the choice was made to do them in Skyteam.
That would be the best looking Skyteam logojet, hands down.
Quoting united319 (Reply 3): CO has a 73G, 764, and a 752 so they have ones that see more international action. The 73G's for some reason seem to do more Caribbean and Central America flying than domestic.
The B737-700 is based in GUM, and flies to Japan and Australia regularly. Don't think the B737-800 sticks to one region, it seems like it regularly serves all destinations on CO's B738 route network.
Quoting united319 (Reply 3): US however has the *livery on more narrow bodies that see domestic flying. They have it one or two A319's, 1 CR7, and 1 E170. The only plane that goest TATL or down south is an East 757.
I believe the two B752s were repainted into the standard livery.

Ahhh, makes sense now. When I was landing at ATL on April 21st for a interview with ASA. I noticed a SkyTeam 75 sitting outside TOC. This was on April 21st which according to flightaware it flew it's first flight out of paint on the following day.
