So this is one of the A320's that TS got and here is what they gave up?

Any idea if TS will look at getting some smaller aircraft...could be useful in the summer doing little flights to Florida, and some Domestic runs...and have them in the winter for a more heavy sun travel operation?

Does this mean that all Star Airlines a/c will be repainted into Air Transat?
(I think so)
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

Codeshare, Air Transat is getting a new livery. From what I hear, it is not much different from the current one. Whether it will be shared with Star, I don't know. As it is, Star and Transat have similar liveries.

Saw it getting pushed back yest. while at YYZ with A.W. but sadly she got towed to north end. No chance to get her in flight.

There is an agreement between star Airlines and Air Transat in which the two airlines swap narrowbody/widebody aircraft for the summer/winter seasons.
This is further reflected by the adoption by Star of a TS-like tail livery :

UTA,

Ya a good deal i guess for both. Can you tell me why the A320's are staying in French registration and the A330 is still in Canadian Registration? Is it something to do with the pilots flying it? I am sure Star Pilots are flying the A320 just as TS has pilots over there flying the A330?

AIrcraft use is swapped but not aircraft ownership.
Hence the lack of registration change.
As for the pilots, my guess is that the 320 pilots are YMX-based when flying for TS and vice cersa.

How about Sky Service, they are leasing aircraft from differnt airlines such as Air 2000 and My travel, they are still in a hybrid livery and i am sure will go back in the spring...why are they in Canadian registration?
