just read on DowJones news:

Etihad Airways to increase stake in airberlin to 29 per cent as part of a wide ranging strategic partnership

- Combined network of 239 destinations

- airberlin to launch Berlin-Abu Dhabi flights

- Etihad Airways to provide five-year financing facilities of up to US$ 255 million to support fleet development and future network growth

Sounds great for both airlines.... WELL DONE! All the best for airberlin and Etihad, i like both companies...

Question: So is Etihad goin to join oneworld eventually???

Interesting development, definitely good for Air Berlin who have been struggling lately ( then again, who hasn't been?)

Quoting QF340500 (Thread starter):
Question: So is Etihad goin to join oneworld eventually???

Considering that they only recently moved away from QF to partner with Virgin Australia that doesn't seem overly likely ( to me, anyway) . If you look at their codeshare arrangments they are all over the place Oneworld, Skyteam, Star and non-aligned

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etihad_Airways#Codeshare_agreements

the same with their frequent flyer ties

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etihad_Airways#Loyalty_programme

I don't really think that any of the big three Gulf airlines ( QR/EK/EY) are seriously looking at alliance membership.

Looks like the survival strategy for airlines that are too small to survive is to get Gulf partners. I expected EK to go for AB a while ago, but they made their math and decided for HAM and STR over BER, so Hapag Lloyd fits better to them.

The German company will go ahead with plans to join the Oneworld group of airlines next year, today’s statement said, even though the alliance includes BA owner International Consolidated Airlines Group SA.

This really came as a surprise for me.
I thought the oneworld tie up, together with the restructuring plan would have lead to
a take over from IAG
I guess this is ruled out, for the time being.
But if this means that AB stays afloat, I´m happy.
I love Lufthansa but I don´t want them to have a semi monopoly
in Germany. Competition is always good.

Off all the alliances EY seems 'pre-disposed' to OneWorld. However, only QR seems truly interested in an alliance (Star) with any seriousness. EK's strategy would be hurt by joining an alliance, so they won't.

AB finally consolidating to BER will help them tremendously. Having east and west feed at two different airports is not going to gain customers. It would be quicker to fly to FRA, CDG, AMS, or LHR and connect than fly into one Berlin airport, drive across town, and check back in at another airport.

Quoting kiwiandrew (Reply 1):

That move away from QF surprised me. I almost wonder if this is EY stating hey BA/QF, you're too cozy. Let us play or we'll find alternatives... Then again, EY joining oneworld would naturally merge the partnership with QF.

I see EY going with OneWorld. However, there is zero advantage going that way until all the OneWorld bankruptcies 'shake out' and AA/EY form more agreements too.

Quoting Burkhard (Reply 2):

You mean like UA?   If one 'stretches the definition' of Gulf partners to include TK, it is almost a requirement to partner with: EK/QR/EY/TK for regional access. This is a market that should have gone to the Indian airlines too... but the lack of 'oportunities to partner for flights not including an Indian airline at Indian airports' has severely constricted their growth.

I believe UAE carriers combined (meaning EK plus EY) are restricted to 4 cities in Germany and since 4 are currently being served (FRA/MUC/HAM/DUS) no additional points can be added until the bilateral is liberalized.

EY currently have rights to serve three German airports at unlimited frequency and seat number. They're currently using their rights to MUC, FRA and DUS. AB is also not really ''launching'' AUH flights, as much as it is moving its existing DXB flights to AUH.

This is clearly a move for EY to expand their market share in Germany. I would not be surprised if AB started flying to AUH from STR, HAM and maybe even HAJ on 738 equipment in the future.

One could just as easily say that EY is 'pre-disposed' towards Skyteam/Star/remaining independent of any alliance ( the last being the most likely in my opinion). What does alliance membership offer EY? What does EY bring to the table for existing member airlines of an alliance?

You join an alliance to open your domestic network to international carriers and vice versa. EY doesn't have domestic traffic and therefore, I would assume: Other than the reduction of competition on certain routes, not much.

Through Air Berlin, EY will gain immediate access to a broad and complementary European market, with outstanding connectivity options for customers of both airlines.

The deal opens EY's network to 33 million potential new customers. The two carriers generate a combined total of more than $9bn in revenues, carry more than 40 million passengers and employ 18,000 people.

Etihad will also provide up to $255m (£165m) in financing over the next five years to Germany's second largest airline.

Sounds like they're bringing quite alot to future Oneworld member Air Berlin and by consequence Oneworld...

I'm sorry, but it stills seems to me that some posters are taking an equity relationship with a single airline which just happens to be a future member of a particular alliance and trying to extrapolate it into an alliance 'signal' of some sort.

I think this development is very significant for Air Berlin, but whether it has much bearing on any future EY relationship with other Oneworld members is yet to be seen.

Is it 3 or 4? I'm just asking for clarification with post #11.

I agree that it is less 'launching' a new flight as re-aligning with a 'strategic partner' versus someone who just code shares.

Quoting something (Reply 12):

I assume the German limits are 3 (or 4) cities to the UAE? (Note, I'm asking to clarify this in my head.) I could see FRA, BER, STR, and then the 4th becomes iffy. FR would want to cut off AB with MUC (since AB is effectively downsizing MUC to 'nothing for LH to worry about').

If by '738 equipment' you mean the 738MAX, I agree. The distances would be a stretch for the 738.

Quoting kiwiandrew (Reply 14):
What does alliance membership offer EY? What does EY bring to the table for existing member airlines of an alliance?

In my opinion, all alliances will have to have a mid-east partner for regional feed. (Note, I include TK as a candidate in that list. An Indian airline could be included but only after India changes their bilaterals dramatically.)

For EY, it is 'secondary city' European feed. For the Alliance, it is one step further to acheiving '2-stop' connections to 99% of the world's population. I do not think of *any* of the mid-east carriers as they are today.    For EY and QR, I envision their network once they are flying out of their rebuilt then 2-runway airports.

Quoting kiwiandrew (Reply 14):
What makes you say that?

(In reference to EY and OneWorld vs. other alliances vs. no allinance.)
Their prior year efforts.

Star Alliance I eliminate as TK meets a *huge* fraction of the 'need' that EY would provide. I also state this as QR has been trying to 'allign with Start alliance' (although is a code share with almost anyone a la their competitors). Combined with AI/9W in India... I do not see EY bringing anything of significance to *A.

In my opinion, of the mid-east carriers, QR will bring the most to the 'benefits divided by costs equation (to the alliance)' for all the alliances. Since, in my opinion, they are likely to go towards *A, that cuts off what would be best for EY (*A) when one also considers TK, AI, and 9W's interests.

In fact, I'm not sure why QR is still aligned with *A. Of all the alliances, that alliance will have the most diluted impact in the region for their partners once an Indian airline is on board. IMHO, SkyTeam and OneWorld would offer more to their mid-east partner (even with IT in OneWorld).

Skyteam:
Skyteam needs to strengthen their Africa, mid-East, and Indian (subcontinent) membership. IMHO, they will provide the greatest benefit to the mid-east partner due to the lack of an identified Indian partner. While EY would strengthen them in the region, I'm still trying to get my mind around Saudia and their role in Skyteam. Now some of this plays into what the Virgin Airlines do, in Particular Virgin Australia. If Virgin joins Skyteam (or even just Virgin Australia), then my opinion would instantly change to EY in Skyteam.

Skyteam

OneWorld:
I agree with you that the Virgin Australia vs. QF distances EY from OneWorld. However, unless Virgin is going to form their own alliance with EY (or Skyteam)... It fills the greatest weakness I can identify in the OW network (mid-east) where there would be a large alliance/member benefit. While I realize IT is aligned with OneWorld, I do not have high hopes for their finances.   By filling a large 'weakness' for the alliance, it benefits the alliance with revenue feed from the fastest growing (in terms of air travel) region. For EY, it would also be the revenue.  

As already noted, EY is buying a huge chunk of OneWorld's new European network. I see EY complimenting BA (much more than QR or EK) *and* providing excellent connections for IB. EY has also in the past made overtures to OneWorld. While I realize that doesn't extrapolate to a certainty, it would help.

Note: I do not consider Gulf Air a serious contender for any alliance.

No alliance: EY is simply *not* growing fast enough to remain relevant against TK and EK without joining an alliance. AUH airport sees about a quarter of the traffic of DXB and barely over half the traffic of IST. Now, I make an assumption here. I assume that either AI or IT is going to fail. Once any large Indian airline fails, then 9W is going to have a *huge* opportunity for growth. It doesn't matter, for this discussion, if 9W officially joins *A or just code shares with enough *A; at that point *A is going to be very strong in the region (AI or no AI, do not forget TK). At that future date (post failed large Indian airline), QR and EY are going to receive a wake up call (after a few years). Since neither has the network to fully emulate the EK 'connection effect,' both will have to join an alliance or struggle to compete.

In my opinion, for mid-east alliances QR is in the drivers seat. EK has a model that wouldn't work if they joined an alliance. I realize QR is only about 40% larger than EY... But they are also expanding more agressively.

Long term, of the regions carriers, only the LCCs and EK have a viable strategy for avoiding an alliance. So EY could go OneWorld or Skyteam per my logic. Since joining an alliance doesn't prohibit prior code-shares... It could go either way and is dependent on AI/IT.

Etihad currently serves MUC, FRA and DUS in Germany maxes out their ''allowance''. Air Berlin has flown 738s to DXB in the past and so have several other airlines. Not sure what penalties they take, but apparently it's possible (and even loaded into the flight plans).

It would be good if AB could start non stop flights to AUH from German/Austrian/Swiss cities that are currently not serviced by EY and feed into the EY network. In reverse, EY could feed passengers onto AB flights to destinations they don't serves themselves either in Europe, or in North and Latin America. I hope their 787s will bring on-board product standards up to par with EY to make this an actual alternative for EY customers.

Personally, I would prefer connecting at DUS over FRA, CDG, LHR anytime.
