Star Alliance [2] is a global network of airlines, and the worlds largest airline alliance. Cooperation includes objectives such as seamless code share flights, sharing bonus points/miles and lounge access across all members of the alliance on frequent flyer programs and, as a new trend, an increased degree of co-location in airport terminals.
