I hate text messaging. Even when I speak with others online I use normal English instead of this 'ur' and 'txt' and 'h8' etc... Most annoying and you can't tell the person's true feelings.

Moving on, the benefits are:

Connections to airlines where you can sell fares on a possibly cheaper way like SQ to Dusseldorf or something from Singapore. An LH fare could be nicer if booked through SIA instead of a non Star Alliance airline.

Sharing of FFP

Sharing of lounges

Cost savings in terms of ground service etc...

Saving passengers money. I think Star saves passengers US$200 million annually thanks to anti-trust immunities and stuff.
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.
