Airline Alliances

Thu Jul 10, 2003 7:48 am

There are 2 major airlines to which I am surprised that they are not members of an alliance. If you ask me, Alaska & JAL would fit well into Oneworld. They are already strong codeshare partners with AA, the backbone along with BA behind the entire alliance.

Possibilities-

Oneworld:
Alaska
America West
JAL
Hawaiian

Star:
Aloha
Emirates
US Airways (planned)

Skyteam:
Continental
KLM
Northwest

Punctuation, please. I couldn't understand a word you were trying to say.

I concur with Tekelberry on the punctuation – but I think I still understood that (kind of...).

Does anyone have any proof of Star Alliance's desire to see Gulf Air join? None of the airlines in Star currently have a strong partnership with a Middle Eastern airline – aside from United, which offers reciprocal mileage accrual and redemption for Emirates flights.

I see Gulf Air more in oneworld – hasn't it always had links with AA-BA?

SIA has rather close relationship with Emirates. You can earn miles on each of the carrier's FFP and redeem on either airline too.
