I really have no idea.. it may be Lufthansa and UA who always influence over many star's decision. They are quite powerful..what's your idea?

I would say Lufthansa or the alliance within the alliance of Lufthansa, SAS and Singapore Airlines. Those three airlines has also founded a cargo alliance which include Japan Airlines.

None of the carriers in the Star is the "boss" - its an alliance, rather than a disctatorship.

However, its fair to say that some of the carriers have more influence in large strategic issues than others - LH, SQ, and UA (in alphabetical order!) are the players that carry the most weight.

United was after all, the founder of Star Alliance.

Welcome to my starry one world alliance, a team in the sky!

..founders of Star Alliance, not the founder...please note the difference.
But overall I do agree, that all members do have one vote if decisions are coming up, but LH certainly has woven its own network inside Star Alliance to be able to control or let's say influence a good number of votes.

I know it's only VfB but I like it!
