Some Star Alliance Questions

Thu Dec 22, 2011 12:42 pm

Is there a compelling reason that Spanair have FOURTEEN aircraft in STAR ALLIANCE colours? This is way more than anyone else, ahead of the ten that BMI and US had.

Also when did Croatia become a full member?

Did Ansett have a STAR ALLIANCE livery jet at all?

To my knowledge Croatia Airlines joined Star Alliance on 18 November 2004.

Croatia, just like Adria, had the status of Regional Partner. They had it until Star Alliance abolished it and then they have become full members.

Many of the aircraft Spanair fly are (were?) on lease from SAS. It was cheaper to paint them in Star Alliance livery (and swap the airline name sticker over) than to do a full repaint.

I don't believe so
