Im thinking is there room for another world alliance ??
Think about it ... there are many airlines , world class airlines, that are not in an alliance.. though many have ties to current alliance partners, some are not.
I personally feel some alliances are too crowded.. now Puhleeeese dont beat me for saying this (I beg you !) but Skyteam I think has too many american carriers in there alliance...NW/DL/CO ... could we see a low cost alliance ?
wow that would be cool ! Think about it..
What could be the most likely scenarios ?? and ok, for those of you out there like me...(yes, come on..admit it there are some ! ) what would be some awesome but unlikely scenarios ?!?! This is quite an interesting subject as the alliance scene is always changing !
Lets have them !!
personally I want Ethiopian in an alliance !! (ETStar should like that too)
Ok, I want a clean,fair debate..hehe

Avianca... Im putting you on my respected users list, your a great a.netter.
Ok.. Now to tear your comment apart...
How could a new alliance not have soul ?!?!
I mean, Think hypothetically.. what if you had Ethiopian,Aer Lingus,TACA,Alaskan,China Eastern and say.. I dont know..hmm..Egypt Air ?...
ohh.. and TAM...
now ok I know most of them have ties to current alliance members (especially EI) but what if they started an alliance, Im thinking youd have some guts in this alliance...
I dont think its all about the amount of Huge airliners in an alliance.. I think you could have an alliance with smart groovy airlines like WestJet and JetBlue and they'd give an alliance real spunk !!
Look at Star, they started off without the likes of BA,CX,AA etc etc and they carved out a great name for themselves..
Avianca.. welcome to my respected users list.

If you can put TAM (for South America), TACA (Central America), Southwest and JetBlue (US), JAL, China Eastern, Emirates, PIA, TAAG and Ethiopian (Asia and Africa), Air Madrid, Ryanair, Portugalia (Europe)... but i think that when Avianca talks about soul, it means a leader airliner (like AA/BA for OW, LH/UA for *A and AF/DL/CO/NW for ST). Also, in Europe you only will find minor players out of alliances as well as US airlines with international routes are all already in alliances.
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

I think though that there are other airlines, developing airlines that will one day turn into big players, maybe not as big as BA or AA, or even AF and JL ..
but look at Kenyan.. they grew up to using 777's .. I can see them being as big as SAA one day.
I admit I dont know a great deal about them but from there network they are a strong carrier with good ties, having an airline like them in a new alliance would surely mean that it would grow speedily.
ET is a good example too...they're steadily growing and ADD is a nice little hub. All we would need is for them to partner say Qatar and maybe a european airline like Alitalia (yes I know they're in S-Team) and you'd have a nice start-up alliance.
How about a LowCost alliance ?
Quoting Avianca (Reply 3): Maybe we will have in future the one or other LCC alliance like AirBerlin and FlyNiki are doing in the moment adding 2 or 3 airlines to them would be a nice first real LCC alliance in europe.
I think we will have this in future, otherway the most LCC (mostly smaller ones) have not reall chance...

I truly think there are some room for another competitive airliners alliance. But in other to create a comparable network similar as Star Alliance or OneWorld, that's not easy though.
As a long time Star Alliance client (I live in Canada, that's why I am with Star Alliance in must case due to AC/UA partnership), when I try to book reward in Africa or South Pacific, I always feel disappointed. Same to OneWorld.
When I brainstorm, I am wondering if there is an opportunity to create an alliance as follow:
JetBlue (USA), WestJet (Canada), TAM (South America), Air Berlin (Europe), Aeroflot (Europe, Central Asia and Middle East), China Eastern (China, Northeastern Asia), Virgin Blue (Australia / NZ), Australian Airlines (Australia), Kenya Airways (Africa) and JetStar (Southeastern Asia).

Some of the world class airlines that aren't already in an alliance don't want to be in an alliance. EK for instance wants to tackle the world on their own.
Quoting BHXDTW (Thread starter): I think has too many american carriers in there alliance...NW/DL/CO
Two of those three have filed for bankrupcy, so let's not worry too much about how many american carriers there are in Skyteam at the moment. They do cover different territories though. None of those three have a decent presence at LAX though, compared to AA and UA.

There is no room for a new Alliance in Europe and North America, because Star. A., One W. and Sky T. have grabbed the market...
There is no important partner in neither, Europe or North America.
One next alliance could try alternative ways, like Asia-South America via Africa or Europe - Oceania via Middle East.
Just analyse that it could not make any difference in the most profitable routes places.
- Far East:
- US / Canada:
Virgin (and all their branches)
- LAtin America:
- Middle East / Southwest Asia:
An extreme effort of coordination among them would be necessary to compete with the other three.
Black list as in ... ??
I would love to see an alliance of LCC's where the still have point to point routes and no codeshares but where their flight time link up and maybe interline baggage.. Think of it.. You need to get to some place in Poland that Easyjet doesnt fly to, But Easyjet is part of a cooperating alliance with Whizz, so you fly from STN to WAW meet up with the next whizz flight that leaves from WAW to the polish city your trying to get to and your bags are already interlined and on the next flight.
Do you get the drift ?
I think also Air Tahiti Nui would be an AWESOME candidate for Oneworld !! ok I like star , BUT... can you imagine if OW or even SKY got ahold of NUI ?!?! That would give NZ a big run for its money !!!! plus it would open up LAX to NUI for onward BA flights to Europe !!!
ha ha IM INVINCIBLE !!!!!!!!!

Quoting USADreamliner (Reply 17): Black list like Cameroon Airlines banned in France,Flash Air also,etc.
It was just a joke BHXDTW!!Obviously Avianca knows what am I talking about
hahahaha... HEY DUDE... dont get me wrong its actually quite a good idea.. you could have a black list alliance for those live-life-on-the-edge thrill seekers..
sorry Id just been persuading my wife to look at a pic of a 777 and after being rejected twice I gave up and came back, my mind wasnt on the subject..
Thanks for the explanaition tho !

Anyone know why JL is not in one of the major three alliances?
And if JL was to join an alliance, which one? Star is obviously out of the question....my pick would be Oneworld, due to their current partnerships with AA, CX, BA and most recently, LA. They also have a partnership with AF, but I see them more as a Oneworld airline rather than a Skyteam airline.
I think what would be cool (notice I didn't say good business practice, as I have no clue how to run an airline), would be something like a Southwest, Easyjet, as long as you had some other airline in there that could get you to Europe/USA. It would have to be somebody small and that fit into Southwest's route structure. Ohh well, just thinkin' - not saying it should happen.

Quoting Kosmonaute (Reply 20): Anyone know why JL is not in one of the major three alliances?
Good question... I would call them a kind of Code-share whore.
-NW and JL have agreements for using WorldPerks on Domestic flights. One can fly to a domestic connection on JL.
-AA and JL have a similar agreement as NW and JL but is goes the otherway. AA can carry JL passengers through on U.S. Domestic and get JAL miles.
-JL and CX have code-shares on select flights to HKG.
-JL and AF have a code-share flight NGO-CDG.
-JL and TG have code-share on select flights to BKK.
I believe they also have code-share with Aeroflot, British Airways, Qantas and SAA.
If they joined an alliance, it would be oneworld because of their long standing agreements with BA and AA.
Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!
