According to this article "a significant membership development will take place on 8 October in New York. The online news service said it had seen documents that said the meeting would include Bruce Ashby, chief executive of Oneworld, Tom Horton, chairman and chief executive of American Airlines, and Willie Walsh, chief executive of International Airlines Group (IAG).

The article states that US media reports suggest that the announcement will be that QR will join OW. QR recently denied reports that they were in talks with BA to set up a agreement like that recently reached between EK and QF. QR have however not denied or confirmed reports that they are to join OW.

Personally I think there is a high chance that this report is true.

Is it also possible that the announcement could be that OW will add more than one new member??. If so who??

Well if you believe some of the threads on here it must be Oneworld announcing the closure of the alliance because there's just no point any more because of the EK and QF partnership!!

The fact that the announcement is in the Americas suggests that it might be TAM. I would have thought an announcement regarding QR would take place on the other side of the atlantic, but you never know.

Doubt it's TAM. Since Willie Walsh is showing up it will be IAG sponsoring QR into oneworld. Tim Horton will only be there in capacity as oneworld chairman.

If you look at all the public love making between Walsh and Al Baker lately, seems obvious.

I am inclined to believe it is an airline in The Americas. The press announcement for Air Berlin joining Oneworld was in Germany. It may be that Tim Horton cannot travel given what's going on at AA at the moment, but I'd be suprised at a press announcement in New York for a Middle Eastern/Asian airline.

AA and IAG (IB/BA) have a lot in stake with the Americas. LATAM is probably the only carrier that would really require both AA and IAG being present and NYC seems like the logical place to hold such an event.

I think the announcement is going to be that they will more than one new not yet announced airline will join OW in late 2013 or early 2014. In light of this report I think the carriers that I think are most likely possible new members are:

Alaska Airlines
Ethiad
Flybe
Meridianafly
US Airways
Westjet

Hainan Airlines is another possibility that is if CX doesnt block them

Jetblue would be very interesting, and I don't think LH's 19% stake precludes it,

US Airways would also be interesting, not least because Virgin has just started codesharing with them and Virgin could lose another US partner.

It wouldn't preclude it, but if B6 joins OneWorld, does that mean they can no longer codeshare with LH because LH is in Star?

For if they could not, then there seems to be no reason for LH to continue to hold the stock (since B6 does not appear to pay a dividend).

To flip that on its head I guess you could ask what US gets from Star. I know they say that their Star membership is "profitable" (however it is you put a value on such a vague and intangible concept) but they don't exactly have a warm relationship with the other members. Being excluded from the UA-AC-LH tie up certainly showed that they are not welcomed with open arms - and it's not as if US has an insignificant European presence either, from what I understand US is bigger in Europe than AA is.

So... maybe as (a) a precursor to a merger - possibly with IAG backing, or (b) to neutralise the US threat - keep your friends close and enemies closer and all that jazz - BA and AA have invited US to join BA-AA-IB.

It would explain the parties involved and the choice of location, or I could be dreaming

Well if it's TAM the choice of New York suggests that they are joining the wrong alliance.

For the record, New York is FURTHER from Sao Paulo than Johannesburg in Africa and is only 100 miles closer than Jerez in mainland Spain.

Wouldn't it be premature for them to join OneWorld at a time when they are far from certain of taking over American Airlines?

There is still plenty that could go wrong with the AA acquisition, and they would be foolish to exit the Star Alliance until the acquisition is confirmed.

I dont disagree with you, but that doesnt mean that they see it the same way. US has been talking to AA and IAG and has publicly stated they would join One World if they could merge with AA.

Like most commentators on this thread I am hoping for a significant airline related announcement - but I fear given that the announcement has been trailed well in advance, possibly as a means of drumming up press interest in a fairly non-descript announcement, and the fact that announcement is to be made in NYC, the admin centre of OW, I fear we may be in for some sort of OW organisational/operational announcement rather than a nice juicy one that is membership related.

I hope I am wrong.

However as the Equator runs across the Amazon Estuary the north of the country, like all of the USA, is in the Northern Hemisphere.

I don't know if any of you guys are into shares at all, but IAG's shares are doing pretty well this week. Seems to me the market has high expectations about the OneWorld announcement. It sure isn't IAG's profit forecast considering they are expecting a small operating loss this year due to the difficult market Iberia is in. I wonder what the effect of OneWorld's plans, what ever they are, will be on IAG's performance.

If, as expected, it includes a full joint venture on the London-Doha route and points beyond Doha (not just Australia) then it is potentially hugely significant for both airlines.

Qatar gains from BA's distribution network and presence in the UK corporate market and its valuable frequent flyer base and BA gains a raft of extra destinations to add to its network.
