TOKYO (Dow Jones) -- Japan Airlines Corp. said Wednesday it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Oneworld, the first step in the official procedure for joining the global airline alliance made up of eight major airlines.

Japan Airlines, which announced its intention to seek Oneworld membership in October, expects to join the alliance in about a year, the airline said in a statement.

It looks like JL has taken the first step into joining OW at last. Let's see how things will go for them.

Great news for OW. Congrats to JAL! 2006/ 2007 seem to be expansion years for OW after a few years of stagnation. let's hope further integration will also follow with these new members. besides Malev, Royal Jordanian and JAL, who else in the reasonably forseeable future could possibly join OW (not in India or China as there was a thread about this about a week ago).

Airlines in LatAm? Africa? any other Eastern/ Central European airlines?

MX and JJ could be interesting candidates, but I think that at the moment they are both interested in staying independent.


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

Agreed. Both seem to be resistant to joining alliances, although long-term, I could forsee both joining oneworld.

thought JL was already codesharing with One World partners? what gives?

when they join, will this reduce any of the frequencies that AA flys to NRT? Will JL move into DFW?

Thanks!

I read somewhere ( sorry , can't remember where ) that as part of MXs 'exit agreement' from Star that they had a 2 year "stand down period " before they could join another alliance ... as they left Star 31/03/04 that period will be up at the end of next month ... at that time they become free to join another alliance (.... if they want to )

would be interesting to see..the only one so far I would see being cut is SJC-NRT of course, I hope it doesn't.. pray ......

JFK-NRT is doing very well....especially now that NW is out of the loop.

Also, of interest, now that JL is downgrading NRT-LHR, will be interesting to see how that works with a possible BA codeshare....

Highly doubtful, as long as AA continues 2x daily DFW-NRT service.

However, this does open the door for JAL to the major oneWorld hubs of MIA, BOS, and MAD, pending the delivery of 787s.

Is there really the year round demand for flights to fill 230 seats to Miami and Boston?? I could see Madrid perhaps, but don't u think that it's a bit wishful for JL to fly to MIA and BOS?

What sort of codeshares exist presently between other OW partners and JL?

What about Royal Jordanian and Malev? Any news, increased/ initiated codeshares with OW yet?
