Six airplanes in one.

Adapted from the April 1998 issue of enRoute magazine.

Putting one logo onto an airplane is difficult enough, but six logos?

Workers at Air Canada painted an aircraft with the colours of all the Star Alliance carriers. Henry Freiss, the Manager responsible for this unique project, says that the most difficult part of the job was making sure the six logos looked right together, while adhering to the strict rules about how each emblem was presented.

For example, a white airplane is a white airplane, right? Wrong. Though five of the six airlines have a white fuselage, each uses a different shade of white.

After the aircraft was painted in Air Canada white, the logos were applied with decals. According to Daniel Lortie, Manager - Paint Program, in Toronto, the job took 10 days and 2,600 man-hours to complete. About 600 litres of paint was used.

The Air Canada employees responsible for painting the A340-300 aircraft with the colours of all the Star Alliance carriers include:

Front row, left to right: Harry Kalenbach, Deny Risi, Richard Parker, Ayoob Motala, Carran Singh, Paul Brennan and Dany Shea.

Back row: Rick Farrell, Ed Ruttan, Barry Parsons, Val Siles, Mike Bird, Donald Yusuf, Brian Butt and Ted McGruthers.
