Star Alliance has unveiled a new corporate livery for its member airlines which will be carried by at least one aircraft in each Star carrier’s fleet.
Asiana will be the first to introduce the new livery in March 2003.
Aircraft will have ‘STAR ALLIANCE’ in large plain script running along most of the fuselage while the corporate branding of the individual carrier will be painted underneath this main title, on the forward fuselage.
The vertical fin will be painted black and carry the Star logo.

So the logos from all airlines will disappear, and the simple black-and-white design is not really exciting... The didn't have the courage to go for an all-black plane, as had been considered.

Don't think Singapore Airlines will paint an aircraft though, due to some superstition(they did not paint any a/c in special livery after SQ006). Would be nice to see it on a 772ER or a 744!

Konstantin, will the Asiana one be on a 767, 777 or 747?

I have seen the new livery in the Star Alliance web site.
It's just an artist impression but it's very ugly.
No fantasy has been used to create it.

I also just had a look at the new livery and it isn't really anything special and I do prefer the current livery with the logos on the fuselage which adds some color to the planes. Best will probably be to just wait and see how the actual plane will look like as there are many chances of them maybe doing the one or other change yet before Asiana introduces it.

Interesting to say the least? Now there was a story on here about the QF/BA aircraft 747-400 that had the tail of BA world images and yet was leased to QF and supposedly the LAX authorities wanted it changed or removed as they could tell whether it was QF or BA? How true this is I do not know but imagine what would happen at LAX if all the Star Alliance aircraft arrived painted in this one pattern...........LA tower trouble???

Defintely a yawner in my book. To me, it doesn't really tell you anything about the Star Alliance, unlike the current Star scheme.

You'd think they'd almost be better off just getting a significantly sized Star Alliance logo on each aircraft instead of this.

I do like the star tail, though  Smile

Even SQ won't get around it this time, that's the agreement.
I have no detail on which Asiana type it will be.

Are they going to paint half of the right engine cowling black and half of the left one dark grey? What if you have 4 engines? Very odd.

As much as Star Alliance knows that the logo livery was well liked, it just is not practical anymore, with new members joining and others leaving.

Well, it's bold, gets to the point and is quite bland.

A more representative livery would be nice.

However, at least SIA is forced to put the special livery on a plane now.
