Starting Aug. 15th, CI's codeshare with DL will add 3 additional cities on DL's network: MCO, TPA, and FLL. Delta will add two more cities in SE Asia via TPE: KUL and BKK.

Very good news for Taipei-U.S. flyers. It is interesting that CI has codeshare operations with DL, AZ and KE. Maybe at some point CI could join SkyTeam.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

It has been suggested for a while, but I believe they won't be able to due to political issues with China.

I thought China Southern was the one in line for SkyTeam membership.

That's why I don't believe China Airlines (The Taiwanese national carrier) will not join Skyteam. Although CI provides a lot of destinations in SE Asia and Australia, which I think Skyteam needs more of, China (PRC) would have non of it!

Very good point. The political situation between the mainland and Taiwan make Taiwanese carriers quite unattractive to world alliances.

Which is quite a shame. CI provides a very good inflight service and their product is pretty high standard. Although they had a questionable past regarding to safty issues, they seem to have made great strides and actually winning a couple of awards/certifications about their safty and maintanance.

Their destinations in South East Asia would be a great addition to Skyteam, and if Taiwan and China ever start direct flights, TPE would be a great hub to China, especially from America.

Agree. I hope we will see at some point in the future flights between Taiwan and the PRC.

I notice you are new to a.net, so welcome to the forums. I am sure that you will enjoy reading the threads, posting comments and looking at the pictures as much as I have since I joined. I look forward to reading more posts by you.

If I get to fly to New York City via JFK later this year, I'll let you know and perhaps we can meet and have a drink.
