UX Joining Skyteam Update?!

Tue Mar 22, 2005 6:19 am

About a year ago there was a post about the possibility that Air Europa would be joining Skyteam. Does anyone have any updates in terms of the possibility of this happening? I certainly would benefit from it and I think Air Europa, as a growing carrier would prove to be advantageous to Skyteam. I know that Delta and Air Europa along with other Skyteam members will share the T2 terminal in MAD once the move to T4 and satellite is complete, so is this a sign of more to come?

Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

One of the various threads that discussed this issue had also a post by a Spanish a.netter who said that definitely UX was not going to join SkyTeam. I really don't know what we should expect but it is a fact that UX cooperates with several SkyTeam members like CO, AF, AM, and maybe KL. I would personally like to see UX in the alliance but I think it looks unlikely. Perhaps someone who is more familiar with SkyTeam or with UX can give us an update.

I read on Aviation Daily today that UX is planning to be in Skyteam by the Summer and that they are also planning a code share with Portugalia as soon as they break away from their alliance with TAP.

What about Aeroflot and China Southern joining Skyteam?

The more the merrier for me.
