    As the title says - Qatar will join Oneworld. Interestingly enough Qantas and Emirates have already signed a partnership, AA may also follow.

    AirBerlin is partly owned by Ethihad who wants it to do a deal with AirFrance/KLM.

    What's the world of airline alliances coming to?

    BostonSam -

    Sometimes it comes down to lobbying and tax incentives.

    I am sure if you had a few million to spare and knew the right people , you could lure an airline from their hub.. icon_twisted.gif

    bostonsam saidI wish we had a hub for one of the alliances up here. Years ago it was US Airways and then they went away. Then it was American Airlines and they went away too. Now I guess we are kind of a Jetblue hub. But in order to get to most places we have to connect in another city.


    Interesting...
