Three Spanish/Latin American carriers in one alliance? I think that would be somewhat of an overkill for *A, especially having A7 and JK
in *A as two Spanish carries (though A7 do not have domestic service?!?) plus AR
. Maybe if Grupo Marsans would merge all of those three enterprises into one (and letting LH
do they whole administrative stuff^^) then it could go well...but as you said, it would take quite some time, money and stamina to get A7 and AR
into *A - though it would indeed fill - to a certain point - the whole *A has in Latin American (I'm still hoping for AV
to become a member any time soon - AR
in *A - match made in heaven!).
As in a recent article, LH
is apparently not interested anymore in JK
respectively in any other carrier - leaving it to TP
, who knows. But if you ask me, that's BS
- if LH
will have the chance to buy BD
- hell they'll do it in a splint second...
How are AR
and A7 doing? I know that ARs fleet is a little old and A7 are not supposed to have the best service...
*A might have the most members and from time to time it's seems like they accepting everybody, but under the recent circumstances, no AR
in *A anytime soon...the only Latin American carriers that would be accepted into *A are (IMHO) AV
(though won't happen, they'll go with Skyteam bc of CO
)...I don't know what *A think of JJ
right now after the recent crash.
When playing around with some ideas for the Latin American market and *A, I always though of PU
being a great place to start flight to southern Latin American (i.d. Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, southern Brazil)...but you know, of course complete BS
and will never happen...I just have a thing for MVD
my two cents!
