This is good news, South America has been a whole in Skyteam for sometime. Now they just need to Virgin Blue, V Australia and Virgin Pacific to merge under one common brand and join Skyteam to plug the hole in Oceania. Good luck on that though

I wonder if this is due to the fact that it looks like JJ and LA will go with either Star or oneworld as a team and that AV/TA will go to Star? I just do not see G3 going into an alliance? They appear to operate like AS with muliple codeshare agreements?

There was an interesting interview with AR's President Mariano Recalde in which he mentions that AR will very soon become again a member of IATA's clearinghouse. It looks like an official announcement should take place very shortly.

The signing ceremony with SkyTeam appears to be scheduled for October 29, and Ms. Fernández de Kirchner will likely be present at the ceremony.

Finally, it looks like AR will send soon RFP's to Airbus and Boeing for the replacement of the airline's long haul fleet. Ideally, AR is looking for all-new widebodies that can be delivered during 2012. AR's intent is to have a standardized all-Airbus or all-Boeing long-haul fleet. In the meantime, EZE-MAD will continue to be a 744 route during 2011.

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

Are there any performance metrics AR has to hit as part of Skyteam? Or is Skyteam going to help turn the carrier around? That is one unfortunate carrier, albeit with some potential.

= Given the recent choices of carriers by Skyteam, I am sure they will have their hands full ... though, perhaps by creating a separate entity in AMS, it might finally not be the weakest service-oriented alliance.

Personally, I've always liked AR.


Live, and let live.
