Skyteam Colors

Wed Jul 21, 2004 10:33 am

Sorry if this is a dumb question or if it has been posted before, but do Skyteam has a plan on adopting a special color scheme so that every partner can paint one aircraft with it? just as Star Alliance does?

Cheers,

No they do not. I imagine that if KLM and NWA join in, they might create a scheme.

Don't NW and KL have DC10/MD11 aircraft painted in a hybrid scheme to promote THEIR alliance? I saw a pic of it once in the inflight rag, but it might have been computer generated.

Anyone know for sure?

I do not remember ever seeing it in the database, but there have been models of it:

A SkyTeam colors plane would be quite nice ... I actually like the skyteam logo.
