My question is this: why would a Jazz plane be painted into Star Alliance colours even when not a part of the mainline fleet? Do other RJ's in the Star network also get painted into this livery?

For some reason, I thought that with their IPO, they would no longer be under the umbrella of ACE. However, after doing some research, this is simply not the case.
|Quoting Accargo (Reply 6):|
The jazz IPO has yet to take place, and ACE will still hold majority control after it does take place. The IPO is not being done to rid ACE of Jazz but rather to enhance the value of ACE. As with Aeroplan, Jazz will have a market value separate from all the other parts of ACE. Other units will likely be going this route in the future as well (Tech Ops, Cargo)

What is the timeline for that offering?

Sorry for the dumb question, but was is IPO? Is ACE the Air Canada Parent company?
|Quoting Olympus69 (Reply 8):|
Yes, this one for instance.

Where are most of these CRJ-705's now being used
|Quoting TIMEAIR (Reply 13):|
I imagine future U.S. Destinations will op with the type when ACJ takes delivery of the B773/B787 ..lol... But that may be wayyyyy down the line.....

With regard to the Star Alliance paint scheme, Jazz is *required* to maintain a specific number of aircraft in the Star Alliance colours, as are all Star members.
|Quoting Cgagn (Reply 17):|
Anyone have any more details on this, such as how many aircraft are required to be in the scheme?
