History Info Please: Who Copied Who?

Mon Aug 05, 2002 12:58 pm

I was browsing to the images, and found this airline called Viasa with the same color scheme as Austral has, exept for the tail logo.

This is Viasa's

Iberia did, then they bought shares into either airline and rebranded them.

jgore-

Check out Iberia's livery and it will become very clear. Iberia went on a buying spree many years ago and bought large (majority?) interest in several Latin American carriers. The "re-branding" Seiple speaks of was to position these carriers as sister companies of Iberia for "seamless" passenger convenience.
