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?

Quoting greggarious (Thread starter):

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 ...

Cool. In the past, would Star or the new member announce the target date ahead of time or just a few days ahead?

Based on previous accessions, in most cases it seems to 'leak' 3-4 weeks in advance with official confirmation only happening a few days out.

Is November 1 the leak?

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.
