All eight oneworld CEO´s had a meeting 30NOV where they all agreed on a shared vision for alliance development in 2001 and beyond.
The meeting, chaired by BA´s Rod Eddington, agreed on a significant increase in marketing investement among other things.
A special action plan was fomulated in the areas of sales, marketing, purchasing and information technology.
It will be interesting to see who will be the next new member, and what will happen to the BA/AA thing. If you look at the slot situation at LHR, you will see that BA is nowhere near the dominating position held by for example LH at FRA. Maybe the regulators will finally understand that, and give BA/AA the go-ahead.
