Vote For Your Favourite Star Alliance Logojet

Sat Jul 26, 2003 6:26 pm

The new Star Alliance design has been received with some criticism, but at the same time, some applications are liked better than others.
So let's try to find out which we like best. When voting, consider aspects such as the tail colour, size and position of the Star Alliance titles, airline titles and logos, engine colour and other details.

On a side note, I heard that Star Alliance is trying to arrange to get as many logojets together as possible for a photo shoot. This will probably take place in FRA (where for example, I saw six different logojets in one morning).

OK, here are the candidates (and I hope I didn't forget anything, who knows, maybe another one is just leaving some paintshop. At the same time, I'm leaving out the older designs):

Austrian A330-200

I like the Lufthansa CRJ-700, the Spanair A320 and the Asiana and Lufthansa black-tail 763 best.
The star livery just looks best on smaller aircraft.

What is the deal with the black and white tails?

The black looks far better in my opinion.

They're all way too boring. Thank goodness they don't paint all of thier planes this dull.

The Star Alliance jets with all the airlines' logos look much better.

I think the Star-Alliance- Logo shouldnt be painted onto the planes, every airline should keep it's idendity.

The new Star Alliance livery looks disgusting on every plane because it is cheap and unimaginative, a special livery should look attractive and colorful in my opinion. I really miss the old Star Alliance colors!

aerosol: I was going to say the same thing!


Other than that, anything with a dark tail is better than the white tail. I'd go for the Lufthansa 747 as favourite, personally.

(Erm, since when does LH have 767s? Godm how little I keep track of these things anymore!)

LH is leasing 767s from Condor (or are they ex-LTU machines?) till they take delivery of their A330s...the ones the ordered, not the ones they are leasing right now.

Lufthansa leased 767 from Condor and got some 330 from Swissair.

Come on, we need more votes (even if you're critical of the new livery)!
So far, the score is (counting Max' vote for the first out of the four he mentioned):

LH CRJ700: II
LH B767 black: I
Thai B747: I
Austrian A330: I

My vote's for the Austrian A330-200. The A330 is a gorgeous aircraft!!

Does anyone know if Star Alliance is requiring all of its member airlines to paint at least one of their aircraft in these new colors?

For me, I'll be interested to see which aircraft United paints in a Star Alliance scheme...

I'd be as interested to see if SIA does paint an aircraft in Star Alliance colours? Heard a rumour that they were going to paint a B747 and a B777-200ER in those colours.

Yes, each member is now required to paint some aircraft (I think 3% of their fleet, which would be a lot in the case of UA). Last thing I heard was that SQ will do a 744 (with the white tail of course, since it was developed at their request).

3% of the fleet? For SQ it would mean 2 or 3 aircraft, most likely a B744 and a B772 will get it. Hoping for a B773, that will look much nicer although I still detest the tacky Star Alliance livery.

Asiana 767-300 and A321 Big grin maybe because I am biased...or maybe because they are the only ones wearing the new star scheme I've ever seen... But if I had to choose only one, then I'd say Asiana 767...

At least Star Alliance did away with the ugly "all Star Alliance airlines colors splashed on fuselage" scheme. Plus, the aircraft's logo (Lufthansa, lauda, etc...) is at the bottom front quarter of the aircraft so we'd be able to identify what airline this aircraft belongs to.

Oh, my vote? The CRJ-700.

I agree with aerosol taht 747 with all the different airlines on it has to be the best. I love the section with the UA colors.

The reason for SQ not wanting a black tail is superstition.

With ATL getting the Condor 767 daily, I've seen both versions of the Star Alliance livery, and I really like the black tail. Condor's 767s came from Lauda Air.

The new star alliance scheme is not that awful, but it is very bland. I can understand why they went to this scheme, but the could have been a little more creative in expressing that they are a global network of airlines. Adding just a little something to the fuselage makes a big difference. In my example below I added a globe and different colored lines connecting the continents Each color represents a different airline in the Alliance. I also added a little more black on the nose and engine section to even out the plane. It's not a huge change to the overall scheme, but it gives a little character that is needed.
