DL SkyTeam Liveries - Why Three 752s?

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.

Someone from the SkyTeam bunch really should paint a 747.

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.

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.

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.

Do any photos of this exist? I'd be curious to see that.

That would be the best looking Skyteam logojet, hands down.

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.

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.

I agree....they should definitely expand the Sky Team aircraft to those or even an MD-88...a 747 would also be a good choice

I feel we'll eventually see The Sky Team logo jets on each of DL's a/c types.

I think the Sky Team logo jets are the best out their when it comes to the alliance liveries with One World's being the weakest, uninspired, frugal looking of the alliance scheme's.

The SkyTeam livery looks good on anything, really. A 744 would look stunning, but it'd amaze me even more to see it on an AF A380. Especially in the first few weeks, when you can still see the colors

I think they should do more liveries in general. DL always has good liveries as does US airways and CO.

It would definitely look good but a 330 would be amazing too. Anyone else think so too?

Do you have a source for this, or is this a random guess?

You're aware there already are China Southern, Vietnam Airlines A332 and Aeroflot A333 SkyTeam in existence, right?

Yes, but that doesn't imply that DL will paint an A330 into SkyTeam livery.

Don't mind another 752 in the SkyTeam paint, but I wish it was a domestic bird instead of another 75E. You won't see those two in many U.S. cities.

Let's see them paint a former NW aircraft for once --namely the 744.
