i assume that tyrolean and lauda are identified separately to the public because they´re two well known and highly recognized brands in their respective markets and so it serves the purpose of making star more attractive. in addition, this makes it look like that star consists of 15 different airlines.
however, on the inside of star, there´s only the Austrian Airlines Aviation Group representing AUA and NG, VO, and so star consists of only 13 airlines, so everyone who claims that star has 15 members is incorrect. true, it´s 15 different airlines but only 13 different management boards.
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
