Re: Aer Lingus could enter oneworld

As LAX772LR stated, this is no surprise, it was just a matter of when, not if. Yes, Aer Lingus will not join Oneworld until press release are made from the IAG. Note that It's still no surprise because maybe the date was not set yet according to Wikipedia. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onew...
