Same in this part of the world
|Quoting FMAL (Reply 7):|
News here says also that the New Varig will be joining Oneworld.
When i first saw the piece of news i thought it was a miss-interpretation of OW
oneworld reinforces global lead as only alliance with South American airline
"Now, with Brazil's Varig leaving Star from the end of January...."
But now you say it's being rumored in Brazil, makes me wonder if it's really true.
Anyway, 2007 seems to be a great year for oneworld...
-Japan Airlines along with 5 affiliates
-LAN affiliates LAN Argentina and LAN Ecuador (finally)
-Cathay affiliate Dragonair
I think these additions clearly outweigh Aer Lingus and BACon losses for the alliance.
