Hey everyone, I was curious to know would do you guys think of the fact that it is pretty much a done deal and that MA will be a One World member, good idea or bad?

And if this was already discussed I am sorry, just post the link to the forum that has it.
Thanks

Yes, it's a great idea. Look at a map of Oneworld hubs. Their solution in Central Europe, Swiss, was stolen away by Lufthansa. Malev is the last, best base for them in the region, and it's actually very well located.

Star has LOT (and AUA) and SkyTeam has CSA. I'd guess that Oneworld needs a presence in that part of Europe. I haven't flown Malev for almost ten years but I understand they're a decent outfit. Oneworld could certainly do with increasing their critical mass to compete with the other two alliances. Interestinging that Royal Jordanian, JAL and Malev were all announced within weeks. Are there any more in the pipeline, I wonder...?

Do we see China Eastern drifting towards Oneworld in time? SN Brussels...?And where is OW in Africa?

Why should SN enter the one world alliance? Their hub is BRU and is located 150 miles from LHR!

One World in Africa: British Airways has domestic flights within South Africa.

Yes, I think it's a great idea that Malev joins One World, I was happy to hear it when it was announced a few weeks ago. As PM points out, One World doesn't have yet a member based in Central or Eastern Europe. Star has Lot and Austrian, Sky Team has CSA plus maybe Aeroflot and Tarom in the future. I like Malev a lot, I flew with them nearly two years ago and the in flight service was superb. There were rumors that Malev would phase out their 2 767's this summer, does that mean they will no longer fly transatlantic? Then, if there is no more JFK-BUD direct flight, maybe American will take over that route. AA customers will be able to fly JFK-BUD on American and connect on Malev to continue to other places in Europe, the Middle East or North Africa. Likewise MA customers will be able to earn or redeem miles on their Duna account.

That's one of the reasons why. BRU is an excellent and currently underused airport. LHR is full. SNBA has a useful African network that would complement BA's. SNBA already has a wide network of flights to UK regional airports. And doesn't SNBA already cooperate closely with AA?

Mark my words... SNBA is going into Oneworld one day.  old
