Eva And One World?

Sat Nov 20, 1999 11:44 am

I couple of days ago it was announced that Eva air and American Airlines were forming a new alliance to cover traffic between US and Taiwan. This would seem to put an end to the current agreement between Eva air and Continental Airlines.

Eva air also currently has a codeshare agreement with British Airways.

Is this leading to entrance in some form to the one world alliance. Would Eva air benefit from Cathays hub so close to it own. I think in this case it would. Eva could operate all traffic on behalf of CX between Taiwan and Hong Kong and Cathay offer onward flights to Europe. Currently all Eva Air Europe flights are routed
via Bangkok (incidently minor hubs of both Qantas and British Airways, One World Members.)

What about JAL and its subsidary Japan Asia Airways which operates in and out of Taiwan, maybe these could also be taken over by Eva and Japan Airlines could offer onward flights to the US and Canada.

Eva would then have comprehensive access to European and North Amercian markets, while maintaining a regional position.

Maybe Qantas could codeshare with Eva Airways with flights between Australia and Taiwan.

Does anyone have any other thoughts?

I thought Qantas and EVA Air did have something together. I'm not sure if it was/is code sharing or what. Is this just in my imagination?

JAL Must Be The Next Oneworld Member

I would think if anything JAL would be the next airline to move into the oneworld scheme. Have they already announced plans to?

They've had a longstanding codeshare and frequent flyer program alliance with American. They seem to fit into the oneworld scheme well.

I've always felt that JAL would be a oneworld airline! Actually, I'm a little surprised that they aren't a member now.

EVA has a codeshare from Taipai to Vancouver with Air Canada. They each fly 3 directs a week using the codeshare. Does this have any implications on joining oneworld? Also, I work at Canadian, and the feeling is that AA was hooking up with EVA to cover it's butt in case CP went under. AA funnels a lot of traffic to Asia onto CP flights, so it was kind of a bummer to see that they got another carrier to hook up with. Can't say I blame them though with all the CP-AC-AA-Onex talk over the last few months. Glen @ YVR

Eva And Qantas

As far as i am aware there is no current alliance between Eva Airways and Qantas. Eva currently has an alliance with Air New Zealand, which i believe also covers the Brisbane-Taipei sector of Eva's Taipei-Brisbane-Auckland service, which would seem to compete with Qantas.

There is also the potential to for Taipei to act as a hub for Qantas for operations into Japanese and Korean cities it does not serve. For instance QF between Sydney and Taipei (with an upgraded aicraft than 747-sps say 744's) with connections with either Japan Asia or Eva into Japanese airports such as Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Foukouka, as well as Pusan and Seoul in Korea which are experiencing some regrowth in travel to Australia.

Maybe Qantas could take a leaf out of Eva Airways book and introduce a premium economy class, which would serve better to attract premium ticket travellers such as business travellers. Ideally this deluxe economy as it is called at Eva would provide premium economy travellers with PTV's upgraded meals and enhanced seating.

Since when have EVA code-shared with BA? When did this happen?

EVA codeshares with three STAR partners : Air Canada to Vancouver, Ansett Australia to Sydney, and Air NZ to Auckland and Christchurch.
I dont think Cathay Pacific will be too happy if EVA join oneworld. QF is better off building a base in HKG as CX have a better connected network in North Asia.

The following is the AP international article i got my information from, please be so kind as to pay attention to the second last line. Thats bloody since when!

EVA Air-American Airline Deal OKed
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) -- EVA Air will start a new partnership with American Airlines next week, the Taiwanese carrier said Wednesday.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has approved the code-sharing relationship between the two airlines and their joint services will start Nov. 21, EVA said.

Under code-sharing arrangements, airlines share flight numbers, meaning passengers who book flights with one airline may actually fly on a partner's jet.

The increasingly popular arrangements allow airlines to extend their route networks for their fliers by offering seamless travel connections.

The alliance allows American Airlines to use EVA flights to extend its passenger services from Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle to Taipei, the Taiwanese airline said.

EVA passengers will be able to use connecting Amercian Airlines flights to Boston, Chicago, Washington, New York, Dallas/Fort Worth, Miami and Austin, Texas, the airline said. The U.S. connections would start March 2000, the carrier said.

EVA has similar alliances with Air Canada, Air New Zealand, Air Nippon, British Airways, and Continental Airlines, among other carriers.

I know for a fact that British Airways and EVA do NOT code share on their respective flights. I flew Taipei-London on BA(British Asia Airways actually)a few months ago and no mention of EVA Air. Go check their web sites.
That article of yours is wrong. That is why I asked you where you heard this info from!
