Mon May 14, 2007 9:57 pm

Just a reminder that 14MAY07 is the 10 year anniversary of the formation of Star Alliance.

Ansett Australia, MEXICANA, VARIG were the only 3 members that dropped out of the first pioneer of multi-lateral cooperation partnership since 1997.

Star has launched 10th anniversary website with 10000 bonus miles giveaways every month
