Will US Join Star?

Wed Dec 18, 2002 11:55 am

We received news today regarding the ability as of January 1, 2003, to accure miles between US/UA towards elites status. Is there any talk of US joining Star Alliance as a full member?

The business plan does call for US becoming part of STAR by Summer; if all goes according to plan this week. They were suppose to originally join in 2004 however LH and other STAR members have asked to speed the process up as fast as possible.

But I'd assume that given the cirumstances, this has all been deferred until they can resolve their current (serious) problems... right?

I've just read in other post, that if the unions do not agree to a further 200 M in reductions, the airline will be forced to go to chapter 7 next Monday....

The liquidation threat is accurate...if Bronner isn't bluffing. The process to join star though is still progressing.
