I think I already know the answer, but has JetBlue ever thought about joining an alliance? IT seems that it would screw up a few of their partnerships and codeshares, given that SA)">AA, JL, LAN are OneWorld, yet TK, LH, TAM and SA are *A. Also, 9K, EK, El Al, HA, EI and VS do not belong to an alliance. Any thoughts? PLus, as of February 2010, JetBlue's CEO stated that they were looking at joining a global alliance. What ever happened to that?

I readed something about that Star Alliance would be most likely choice because LH owns 19% of JetBlue.

I did read that as well, but the CEO stated this in 2012. What ever happened to that?

I don't know but I think that they will keep the status as it is at the moment, because they have a lot of Partnerships and when they would join a alliance they would lose some, maybe (Correct me if im not right)

No, you are correct, which is what I was asking in the thread starter.

Do the three major alliances all require members to offer a premium cabin product on mainline flights? *A used to require 3-class service for intercontinental, but this as clearly been relaxed with several members now offering C class as the only premium cabin on at least some long haul flights.

B6 isn't that dumb. AA is in a horrible financial state right now while B6 is doing great. If they joined, it would pull B6 down with it.

LH is in the process of selling back their ownership to B6. They will maintain a positiion on B6's BOD but that is about it. I would quote a press release on it, but all I have is internal communication. I will leave it up to our fellow A-netters to search for a public release on that though.

Dont look for jetBlue to join an alliance anytime soon. B6 is happy with the interline agreements they have and it allows B6 to pick and choose agreements that fit with our customer base and create a positive experience maintaining their Brand.

Having an alliance with AA, would NOT pull B6 down..sheesh. B6 might not want it if such an alliance restricted B6's opportunity to have tie ups with other carriers. In fact a JV would probably result in AA leaving most of the Caribbean for B6.

B6 and AS seem to like the idea of partnering with the world rather than aligning with the few. I personally am waiting for B6 and AS to enter into a code share for their east/west coast flights. Sure, B6 has LGB but AS covers the west coast much better than B6 IMO. Additionally, the obvious east coast network of B6 would be a great benefit to AS in my opinion, and maybe we could even see AS open up JFK as well as EWR. Okay that last one isn't probably likely, but I can dream. But regardless, the fact that AS can get passengers into FLL, BOS, MCO and even AUS opens up a number of connecting opportunities for AS/B6.

True but you still have people that think it would happen. Even funnier is the people that think AA would buy B6 considering the state they are in.



Giants football!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is exactly what I was referring too. Every few days someone or other proposes that AA should acquire B6 ... or vice versa. B6 is doing great and there is no reason why they should agree to either - and destroy their culture and the best Y class product in the US. For that matter, I have to say I am actually surprised that no one (on this thread) has seriously brought it up yet

This can't be accurate as AC is a founding member of *A and they only have ever offered two classes.

This has been discussed to death. I feel like A.net continues to beat a dead horse with this topic! Currently, it seems that JetBlue is enjoying doing their interline agreements with select airlines around the world.


Not all of us can be heroes, some of us can only stand on the sidewalk and clap as they go by.
