All Star Alliance c/s a/c look the same  bigthumbsup 

Have to nail it when it comes to ZAG. Does anyone have any idea of when will that be? Since it's painted and registered, it may be soon...

It was just a matter of time before this happened - OU needs a few more planes and this one will apparently be enough for it to cover several new routes that have been opened and the increase in frequency of some existing routes...

Svaka Cast Boyz...

Nice to see at least one Balkan Airline is making friends in that region... Looks great. I think some recently sent out an article that Croatia Airlines has had some losses (financial) this year on one of the yahoo groups. Is that true? Hows their financial situation looking?

DekX: they're finally making a profit (for the last year and a half), but there are still substantial debts to pay off and that's going to last awhile. But no doubt that the government will jump in if it gets critical. OU is apparently proceeding cautiousy, one plane at a time you might say...

I agree, all Star Alliance aircraft look the same. I think the livery looks better on the 744/777/MD11 and A346 Big grin

This is an Awsome picture. I have been waiting for this moment for some time now. I hope that OU continues to do well and pay off its debts. I had many plesant flights with them. Great livery. gkpetery have a great flight with OU, I am sure you will want to fly them again after doing one flight with them. DBV is a AWSOME city i have been there many times.

Seen it taxiing today at ZAG, looks nice (while it's still clean) Big grin. Now we only have to find out what will it be named (Buses are named after Croatian cities, but the bigger ones are almost spent... maybe "Osijek" as some people have suggested...
