leaving, based on the rumours in the banking market, AA
seems to be heading into another sort of trouble, that is, Chapter 11! There are rumours that say that AA
management is already re-negotiating credit facilities under a chapter 11 scenario.
As I said: Rumours!
Under the assumption of such a scenario an approach to Qantas makes sense, BA
shareholding notwithstanding, they don't have a voting majority afaik (correct me if I'm wrong).
As for the original question: yes, sort of, but these problems seem to be solvable, if not by new full-scale members then by cooperations with American carriers. LH
is sort of an expert on these alliances!
And given the fact, that AA
does have serious problems, I don't exactly see other carriers run into the Oneworld-direction either!
