Can you explain the following, please?
"He mentioned earlier that Star is the third alliance which is not anymore in the race."

Which other two alliances are not in the race anymore? I know only 3 alliances (ok, 4, if you add Wings, but this one was never considered, at least it was said so).

Regards
Gerardo

The Scandinavian travel magazine "Take Off" seems confident that Swiss on March 26 will announce that it joins OneWorld.

At a lunch meeting Swiss CEO Pieter Bouw should have stated advantages and disadvantages for each of the three major alliances. The participants in that meeting is reportedly very confident that OneWorld will be the alliance chosen by Swiss.

I saw on the news that SWISS will join an alliance prior to their launch on April 1. The contracts will be signed before that date.

Currently two of the three major alliances are still in question - presumabley Oneworld and SkyTeam. It was also mentioned that inofficial, unconfirmed statements say that Oneworld will be the one!

The NEW Oneworld:

- American
- British
- SWISS
- Lingus
- Cathay
- Finnair
- Iberia
- Qantas
- LAN
