Yea...

If QR slides one of their slots onto Bmi, they can then still have two daily slots meaning they can create another daily flight!  Smile

Are QR going to join Star Alliance or will these remain the only QR flights on which one can accrue Star-miles?

Rumour has it that QR are set to join Star Alliance within 2006, they currently have strong links with Star Alliance airlines  Smile

This is one of the sneakiest things QR have done and despite the fact that it is a blatant attempt to circumvent restrictions they will get away with it - good on them. I guess there is more than one reason Al-Baker is called "The Snake"
