I posted a similar question yesterday, but nobody answered so far.
I found the following article in the business day za under the headline:
"Vetting of SAA could last 18 months"
its on this side: http://www.bday.co.za/bday/content/direct/1,3523,1660208-6078-0,00.html
And I asked the question how this could so long, because it never lasted more than a year between an announcement of a new member and its entrance into star.
Regarding their codeshares I remember that I somewhere read the last days that they can maintain some of their codeshares from out of star. For example I don't see anyone who could have a problem with a domestic codeshare between SA
. But I guess that NZ
wouldn't be so happy if they also codeshare over the Tasman. Not sure if their relationship with CX
can maintain. But I am quite sure that they will terminate their codeshare with DL
and switch to UA
because they already announced this.
