Will US Airways join the Star Alliance with United or will they join the One World Alliance with American?

If I had to pick one, it would be ONE WORLD, because UA and US have the east coast, and competition is now whats meant for an alliance.

But , I personally think they should start an alliance with TWA, and maybe even NW!

AA is sorta strong on the east coast but USAirways is not strong in the midwest and westcoast but rule the east coast and AA is strong with the midwest and west coast so look for USairways jets with the oneworld logo by the nose within the next year or so

Oneworld probably has an advantage since AA and US already have a mileage plan agreement. Personally, I think US Airways might be better off joining forces with Swissair and its Qualifier group of airlines, since this alliance doesnt have an american partner. This group would offer the least overlap in routes and US Airways wouldn't have to share connecting passengers from europe with United or American. Also, remember that US Airways pilot contract (as well as American's) forbids them from code sharing with a domestic airline.

I agree with 717-99D's assessment of USAirways and the Qualifier group hooking up. Don't look for Swissair/Qualifier to go to oneworld. The biggest reason they left Delta was because they did not want to play second-hand to Air France. I hardly believe that a BA-led oneworld would be appealing --- same scenerio.

USAirways would be the lead US carrier and would benefit tremendously --- much more so than with AA in the picture.

Here's another possibility ---- US, TWA and Alaska ALL joining forces with Qualifier. This would cover a majority of the US market and leave Swissair in control.

Any thoughts????

Also - anyone have any news on new partners for the Air France/Delta/Aeromexico/Korean Air alliance? Aeroflot has been mentioned, but don't look for that until they are operating 100% Boeing/Airbus planes.
