This morning I received my latest Mileage Plus statement. One of the news items caught my attention:
More ways to earn on flights to India and London
Flying to India? Now you can enjoy more travel flexibility (and earn more miles) with a new code-share agreememt that allows United customers to enjoy MP opportunities on select flights with Jet Airways of India.
Beginning in October 2005, United customers can take advantage of Jet Airways flights between Mumbai and London - as well as flights from Mumbai to other cities in India.
Has this code-share already been mentioned for 9W LHR-BOM flights, or indeed for domestic sectors ex-BOM?

I've read (on other a.net posts) that Air India is considered the front-runner to join the Star Alliance, due to its close ties to Lufthansa.
However, after all of the good things I've heard about Jet, I think that I would prefer Jet in the alliance to Air India (especially, considering the fact that Jet has domestic connections, whereas Air India does not (other than through Indian Airlines).
