It's been almost a year since Ethiopian Airlines was accepted as a future member of Star Alliance. The integration process was supposed to take approximately a year but I haven't found anything in the news about progress toward reaching that goal. Anybody know anything on whether ET joins before the year is up?
Well they were approved by the board in late september last year and it would take some 12 months for them to get integrated. In other words, that should be sometime in late September this year. If all goes after plan that is ...
I don't know, two and half months seems quite a long time in advance for a leak, but why not? I certainly don't have any inside knowledge. I am just going off what seems to me to be the usual pattern in the past with a lot of the formal accessions.
