Star Alliance Question

Tue Feb 20, 2001 1:22 pm

I just saw Air Canada's A340 painted in their Star Alliance livery. I was wondering, how may aircrafts do the Alliance members have to paint. I am guessing that they are painting their long term aircrafts, thats why A/C is avioding their 744's because they might dissapear soon. Will we see more and more Alliance aircrafts in their livery?

Thanks,

G

As far as I know, each Star Alliance airline has 1 aircraft painted in the livery. None of them are 747s, sadly...

Singapore Airlines doesn't, and I don't think Varig does now either since they retired their 743 that had the Star livery...

Varig's 743 was only painted in Star colors on one side and only a few days. They also had (have??) a 767-200ER in Star colors. All Star carriers except Ansett, Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines have aircraft in Star colors. The777Man

in star colors:
LH a-340-200 (still? haven´t seen it for quite some time)
OS a-330-200, a-320
BD a-330-200 (soon, will be flying for SK daily CPH-EWR)
believe an additional a-320
VO DHC-8, CRJ
AC a-330-300
MX 757-200
NH 767-200

as for UA, RG, TG i´m not sure but i remember something about UA and RG, though.
i´ve never heard of any SQ, NG, AN or NZ planes in star livery.
well, that´s the first thing i´ve heard about that two planes must be painted in star colors and i doubt that there´s such a rule. there are some star members which haven´t got a star-painted plane, yet.
if my info was not entirely correct, sorry, and please feel free to make corrections...

UA has N556UA (?) in Star c/s, AC has a A343, and LH has D-AIBA. I remember hearing that ANZ wouldn't paint any planes in the Star c/s because it was a waste of paint or something like that.

VO doesn't fly CRJs ; the CRJ in Star colors is a Lauda CRJ. The registration of the UA Star plane is N653UA. The777Man

777man, you´re incorrect, sorry.
VO definitively flies CRJs, as well as lauda.
although i admit that i could have confused the tyrolean crj with star colors with the lauda crj in star colors.
nonetheless, tyrolean has a fleet of CRJs!!!
once, i saw one of their crjs with my own eyes and if you still don´t believe me, check out their homepage and you can see  Wink/being sarcastic they´ve got a fleet of 10 CRJs.

best wishes
daniel

Ok, I'm sorry; I guess Tyrolean does have CRJs. I remember I saw one at CDG about a month ago. But the CRJ with Star colors is Lauda's ; it has the Lauda logo at the very front. The777Man

Welcome to the forum, Mx727... I am also an enthusiast of Mexican aviation. Do you work in the aviation industry?

Both of the MX Star Alliance birds are frequent visitors here at SFO.

I guess you could say I am lucky. In an earlier post I mention flying on UA 946 a while back when it was operated by a 763. About two years ago, I looked at the aircraft before boarding and saw the color scheme and had no idea what it was until after the trip. I thought it was just a joke in their commercials, but its a great livery on the 767. As I said, I was on one of 'em! Awesome plane too... very comfortable with PTVs in all seats.
