Hi,

does somebody know why OS chose the white tail?

I think the black tail livery looks better.

It would look better if they had chosen the black tail.
Does anyone know which other airplanes will be painted in Star Alliance c/s soon (SQ, UA, TG...)?

The 1st A340-600 for LH will be painted in Star c/s.

The black tail would look better. I think it looks pretty good though.

I doubt it´s a reasonable decision from LH to paint another plane in Star Alliance c/s. When receiving their first A346, they will have four aircraft in this livery. In my opinion, it should remain something special and surprising to see such a bird coming in...

Oh yes you're right, I forgot Condor 767. I read the info about the A346 on skyliner-aviation.de.

Is it up to the airline to decide if the tail is white or black?

From the two Lauda 767 on lease to LH one also has got the white tail.
All in all too much white on the aircraft (if you ask me)

It looks as if the Star symbol is too low on the tail, or is that just me thinking that?

Somehow this livery only does look good on small birds such as the Spanair A320. The few times I saw it I did really like it but these big ones (LH 744, OS A332,...) are not really anywhere close to beauties...

I'm not a fan of the current Star Alliance colour scheme.. seems kinda bland.. black tail white fuselage..yawn.. It's anything but innovative. Let's hope the next round has a better design with some colour in it.

Too bad it´s such a bad photo of this morning arrival of AUA34. The photographer would had more luck with the weather on the the day before when the plane left to VIDP, on April 3rd when it operated to KJFK or April 2nd to CYYZ.
Bad luck!

Tadex;
Do you know for sure if LAO really flew into YYZ a few days ago??? I had hoped to see it, but, either it was late, or, I was.

Thanks

I like the white tail much better.
