How come there's no color scheme of One World Parnter Airlines for One World Airlines while Star members have already painted this old livery including 6 airlines

Is is that One World would not follow the way Star goes or are there other policies?Do you guys think that the Star painted aircraft rocks or sucks?Another question is...is it that airlines which have joined Star Alliance could paint on which aircraft they could and they could paint as many as they want to without paying fees?Or they have to pay a certain amount for each aircraftExample - SIA didn't paint any while British Midlands painted the scheme on their A320's and ANA painted the scheme on their B763.One more question is that anybody knows which airlines in Star have painted the scheme?On which aircraft?I'm a Star Fan actually and hope somebody could solve these questions for me!Thanx!

Best Regards

I absolutely loved the way some Star Alliance member airlines have painted their airliner.

This is especially so with the style adopted initially by ANA and now by bmi, Austrian etc. I can only hope that Star Alliance airlines which have yet to do so (such as SIA, ANZ, Ansett) embark on it soon.

One World on the other hand is very sadly conspicuous in not reinforcing her identity in any visible manner, beyond the little blue dot which one could easily (from afar) mistake for a drop of stray paint or impurity. Skyteam also has only one little hardly-visible logo.

I still harbour hopes that One World and Skyteam would do something to showcase the ties within their alliances.

Yeh Skyteam...combines with 4 airlines.But not big enough to compete with both Star and One.
But isn't it Ansett not in Star Alliance anymore?People have been discussing if new Ansett mark II is a Star member, which i reckon not for the time being.

Best Regards
