I don't believe they have given official dates, but probably by this summer. Also, don't forget LAN Argentina and LAN Ecuador are also in the process of joining.

Royal Jordanian is sometime this year of course.
HU? Forget about it. They're far from the reach from oneWorld.

I think he means MA as in Malev, not HU. MA is due to join in 2007 also but not clear when yet. Also don't forget Dragonair.
Bet the integration guys at OW have their hands full with all these newcomers!

News here says also that the New Varig will be joining Oneworld.
Any news abroad on that switch from Star Alliance to Oneworld?

Same in this part of the world
When i first saw the piece of news i thought it was a miss-interpretation of OW press release
oneworld reinforces global lead as only alliance with South American airline
"Now, with Brazil's Varig leaving Star from the end of January...."
But now you say it's being rumored in Brazil, makes me wonder if it's really true.
Anyway, 2007 seems to be a great year for oneworld...
-Japan Airlines along with 5 affiliates
-LAN affiliates LAN Argentina and LAN Ecuador (finally)
-Cathay affiliate Dragonair
I think these additions clearly outweigh Aer Lingus and BACon losses for the alliance.
