I beg to differ, ALL4BWI, if AS
joins Oneworld, then maybe there would be more Oneworld passengers flying the Pacific Northwestern corridor.
Right now, an Oneworld passenger on a RTW ticket has virtually no way of getting to California from Vancouver, Seattle or anyway along the Northwestern Pacific coast without backtracking on AA
to Dallas. Similarly for people from Southern California who want to fly north have to do the same.
As the Star Alliance has 2 US partners, UA
and US, it's only befitting to see that Oneworld add AS
to complement gaps in areas where AA
does not fly to. And that is the Pacific Northwest corridor.
