Do any of you guys/girls know if there is any middle east or south asian airline that have plans for joining an alliance?
Dear QIguy24, taking reference to the South Asian airlines:
might join Star Alliance some time in future. They have unilateral codesharing on some flights with LH
etc. (meaning, AI
number on them) and are trying to expand to UA
(which they had codesharing in the past) and AC
. They had SK
in the past, too... The recent MoU with LH
is a kind of step in this direction...
Then I would suspect IC
, but especially 9W
(have cooperation with KL
already and some others??) and S2
to commence Codesharing, too, with foreign airlines, because connectivity with Indian domestic markets is important for foreign players... this might enhance once they have more destinations apart from CMB abroad...
, I think this should happen soon, maybe when the fleet purchase commences (or won't that be too soon?
). Although AI
might not meet alliance status so far, they ARE an important partner due to the large Indian market...
Question: is there any other career "AI / IC
performs flights for with" their respective flight no? I don't know anyone so far, only other way round...
other question: doesn't HY
have unilateral codeshare with IC
