Air India (I'd bet Star)
JGPH1A, you gave the right hint. Just to clarify: I do not work with AI
nor did I consult anyone close.. but the analysis I am doing at the moment definitely hints at an AI
membership with Star in the future (the reciprocical free-floating code-share with LH
on selected flights, negotiations with UA
etc... - but especially the former). In the short-term, Star might not benefit, nut 100% in the long-term...
The only thing I am interested.. if AI
joins star: will they stop cooperation with AF
et al? If this is the case, than I would not
to join it.. the selective code-sharing in doing better...
Edit: After thinking a little more and re-reading the topic: I am not anymore sure whether a global alliance membership is a benefit for AI (meaning, if they have to give up their individual alliances as consequence..??? )
