Hopefully Vietnam Airlines would Join oneworld, withs its code-share partners, JAL, Qantas, Cathy Pacific & American Airlines, but it looks like SkyTeam is desperate to have them in...... Air France also agrees! they have code-shares with Korean Air & China Southern in SkyTeam

Quote:
oneworld is ten: What the CEOs say
American Airlines Chairman and Chief Executive Gerard Arpey, Chairman of oneworld's Governing Board: oneworld has made an important contribution in helping our partner airlines endure a tumultuous decade while still achieving the best collective profitability of any alliance.

Our on-going focus on quality will not waver. While our combined network is unmatched, our focus has always been on quality rather than quantity, on service rather than size. This is what makes oneworld stand out as an alliance - and that will not change.

The decade to come will bring additional challenges, so we're going to work even harder to make sure oneworld creates value for our member airlines and delivers more services and benefits to our customers - hopefully with the benefit later this year of anti-trust immunity between our transatlantic oneworld partners, enabling us to compete on more equal terms with other alliances.

British Airways Chief Executive Willie Walsh: As a founding member of oneworld, British Airways has benefited from 10 successful years as part of the world's premiere airline alliance. Our customers have access to world-class in-flight products, more airport lounges, an unrivalled global network and connections to hundreds more destinations.

Our commitment to oneworld and its focus on quality rather than quantity will increase the strength of our alliance and deepen our determination to innovate and improve our products and services now and in the future.

Cathay Pacific Airways Chief Executive Tony Tyler: A lot has happened since Cathay Pacific became one of the founding members of oneworld in 1999. Our airline has grown significantly over the past decade, as has oneworld, and being part of the leading quality alliance has played an important role in enabling us to offer a better product to our customers.

Being a oneworld member has helped Cathay Pacific extend our markets, introduce innovative new products and realise synergies from being in partnership with some of the world's finest airlines.

Looking ahead, our relationship with oneworld will continue to be an integral part of our strategy for future growth and development over the next 10 years and beyond, for both Cathay Pacific and our sister airline Dragonair.

Finnair Chief Executive Jukka Heinonen: Finnair is proud to be the Nordic dimension of oneworld. When we were considering our alliance strategy, it was clear that oneworld was the best choice for us. Quality members and a complementary global network were the deciding factors then. That decision has proven right.

Our customers have benefited from the network possibilities, lounge access and frequent flyer benefits, and Finnair has gained increased revenue and reduced cost.

We look forward to developing our relations further in the future with our top quality partners from around the world.

Iberia Chairman and Chief Executive Fernando Conte: Iberia's membership of oneworld has enabled us to enlarge our customer base, extend the coverage of our flight network and offer more and better connections to our passengers.

In times of economic turbulence, oneworld enables us to obtain important savings. The adoption of best practices in the different disciplines enables us to improve both customer service and the skills and productivity of our employees.

Within oneworld we are creating strong working links between our member airlines, paving the way for the consolidation of the industry which will come sooner or later.

Japan Airlines Group Chief Executive Haruka Nishimatsu: Japan Airlines proudly became a member of oneworld on 1 April 2007, joining hands with the alliance's other world-class airlines.

As a member of the alliance, we have been able to strengthen further the quality of our products and services for the benefit of all our customers. At the same time, our strong market presence in Japan and elsewhere in Asia has enabled us to take a prominent role in oneworld's strategy, and significantly enhance the overall competitiveness of the alliance.

Together with our oneworld partners, we will build on the successes of the past 10 years to create an even stronger alliance capable of better responding to the changing needs of our valued customers.

LAN Airlines Chief Executive Enrique Cueto: As the leading airline in Latin America, LAN offers an internationally renowned quality of service. We are proud to represent oneworld in the region by offering clients of the alliance the best option for travel to and from Latin America with an extensive network of connecting flights within the region as well as domestic routes in Argentina, Chile and Peru. In addition, LAN efficiently unites this region of the world with the United States, Europe and the South Pacific

oneworld has been essential in LAN's strategy, as it enables us to offer our clients the full advantages of a globalised world where traveling has become easier due to a network of the best airlines in the world. Throughout these years, passengers have enjoyed access to important benefits including mileage accumulation and rewards with every airline that is part of the alliance. These benefits have allowed our passengers to enjoy a more comfortable, simple, and efficient travel experience. The alliance has added value to the product we offer our clients and benefited all oneworld members.

We would like to continue strengthening oneworld in the future by integrating the best international airlines, expanding the services offered by the alliance, and positioning LAN in the forefront of the global airline industry.

Malév Hungarian Airlines Chief Executive Peter Leonov: Malév is very proud to be part of the world's leading quality alliance. Being part of oneworld enables us to provide our customers with superior access to a truly global network, substantially expanding the destinations we can offer and broadening the scope our services and strengthening Budapest as a hub.

At the same time, it is vital for a medium-sized airline like us to have partners to achieve long-term, sustainable profitability.

Qantas Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce: Qantas, a founding member of oneworld, is proud to be associated with an alliance that has dedicated itself to delivering products of exceptional quality.

While maintaining their commercial independence, all oneworld carriers have strong brands and share a strong commitment to exceptional customer service. Over the past 10 years, they have been able jointly to enhance their respective product offerings and are now able to deliver a more highly valued global travel proposition to their customers.

The mantra "oneworld revolves around you" clearly demonstrates the importance the alliance and its members place on the customer.

Royal Jordanian Chief Executive Samer Majali: Royal Jordanian is proud to have been the first airline in the entire Middle Eastern region to have joined any of the global alliances. We are particularly delighted to be a member of oneworld as it has been named the World's Leading Airline Alliance for the sixth year running in the World's Travel Awards - recognition of the excellent performance and outstanding quality of its airline members.

For Royal Jordanian, membership has created opportunities enabling our airline to reach many more destinations, linking into our partners' networks.

On the tenth anniversary of oneworld's launch, the RJ family wishes on-going success and prosperity to the alliance and its members.

oneworld Managing Partner John McCulloch: The results from oneworld's first decade make abundantly clear the growing value the alliance has added to all its key stakeholders.

In an industry where profit margins are thin at best - let alone at times of global economic turbulence - revenues and cost savings from oneworld have made an increasingly important contribution to our member airlines' financial standings. For frequent, international air travellers - our core target market - alliance services and benefits have fast become a ‘must have', so oneworld's customer offering has never been more important in terms of keeping our member airlines competitive and their customers satisfied.

As we enter our second decade, the alliance's strategy remains the same - focussing on quality rather than quantity and on adding value for our member airlines and their customers.

[QUOTE]
aword from oneworld: March 2009
[oneworld adds Ecuador domestic network and dozen destinations worldwide: Twelve new destinations in Africa, the Americas and Europe - along with a new domestic network in Ecuador - join the oneworld® network in the new flying season, which starts on Sunday (29 March).

oneworld affiliate member LAN Ecuador launches its new domestic schedule next month. Initially it will connect the capital Quito with Guayaquil and later link both cities with Cuenca (which has the three-letter IATA code CUE) and Galapagos (SCY), both of which will join the oneworld map for the first time. It will operate latest generation Airbus A320 family aircraft on all routes.

This new domestic network will complement LAN Ecuador's international services to and from Ecuador, which include flights from both Guayaquil and Quito to places such as Buenos Aires, Madrid, Miami, New York and Santiago.

Also in South America, LAN Ecuador's sister airline LAN Peru is to add Cartagena de Indias (CTG), on Colombia's Caribbean coast, to the alliance's network from 29 April, with two Airbus A319s a week from its Lima hub.

Six new destinations in the USA are being brought on-line to oneworld by affiliate American Eagle, the regional carrier of American Airlines:

Brownsville, Texas (BRO), right on the Mexican border, from 11 June with three flights a day.
Charleston, West Virginia, (CRW) from 7 April with an initial six round trips a week.
Lake Charles, Louisiana, (LCH) twice-daily from 11 June.
Manhattan, Kansas (MHK), from 25 August.
Montgomery, Alabama (MGM), the state capital, and steeped in history from the Civil War to Civil Rights, twice-daily from 11 June.
Santa Fe, the New Mexico capital, (SAF) daily from 11 June.
All will be served from American Eagle's Dallas/Fort Worth base, apart from Charleston, which will be linked with New York LaGuardia.

In North Africa and Europe, the alliance will add:

Benghazi (BEN), as its second city in Libya from 1 June when Royal Jordanian opens service there from its Amman base with an initial two flights a week.
Bergen (BGO), as its third destination in Norway, with Finnair flying there from its Helsinki home from 22 May, with five flights a week.
Iasi (IAS) as its the fifth destination in Romania, with Malév Hungarian Airlines launching five flights a week from its Budapest hub from this weekend, building to six from June.
oneworld's airlines serve almost 700 destinations in nearly 150 countries. It is the only global alliance with any members based in South America, through LAN Ecuador, LAN Airlines, LAN Argentina and LAN Peru, and the only global alliance with any members in Australia and Asia's Middle East.

BA to resume services to Saudi Arabia: British Airways is to resume flights to Saudi Arabia, with five services a week from its London Heathrow hub to both Jeddah and Riyadh from 31 May. It will serve Riyadh with Boeing 777s, and Jeddah with 767s. BA suspended operations to Saudi Arabia in March 2005 because of the poor commercial performance of its flights, but the country has remained on the oneworld network through flights by other member airlines. Royal Jordanian serves both Jeddah and Riyadh along with Dammam with Riyadh also receiving Cathay Pacific flights.

Iberia to add Zagreb to its network: Iberia is to add Zagreb to its network with twice-weekly seasonal flights from its Madrid hub between 4 July and 20 September. The capital of Croatia is already on the oneworld map through a connection by Malév Hungarian Airlines with its Budapest hub.

Malév to serve St Petersburg: Malév Hungarian Airlines is to add St Petersburg to its network from next month. It will become the fourth oneworld member to serve the Russian city, alongside British Airways, Finnair and Iberia. It will fly there twice a week from 22 April to 21 October. Malév is upping also frequencies on a range of key routes from its Budapest base from this Sunday, adding:

A second daily rotation to both Rome and Hamburg.
Six round trips a week to Zagreb giving a total of 20 a week.
Three more weeklies to Thessaloniki and Tirana, giving a total of 13 a week.
RJ sprouts to Brussels: Royal Jordanian will inaugurate its first service between Amman and the Belgian capital, Brussels, next Wednesday (1 April) with two Airbus A319s a week.

Finnair becomes fifth oneworld airline to serve Istanbul: Finnair has become the fifth oneworld member airline to serve Istanbul, with the launch of non-stops between the Turkish city and the airline's Helsinki home. The airline is serving the route with four, two-class Airbus A319s a week. Istanbul is already served by oneworld partners British Airways, Iberia, Malév Hungarian Airlines and Royal Jordanian.

Finnair is to increase frequencies between its Helsinki home and oneworld hubs New York JFK and Tokyo Narita during the summer peak. It will add another three flights a week to the Big Apple, giving a total of ten weekly round trips on the route from June to September. The new services will be timed for the first time to connect with the airline's extensive Asian network. It will also add another three flights a week to Tokyo, taking its schedule to daily.
More moves at London Heathrow in biggest airport co-location project: oneworld's biggest airport co-location project to date has moved a significant step forward towards completion, easing transfers between flights operated by the alliance's carriers at its biggest European hub.

Finnair and Iberia have now moved their operations at London Heathrow to Terminal 3, along with the few British Airways European flights not already operating from its new Terminal 5 home - those serving Barcelona, Madrid, Helsinki, Lisbon and Nice.

At Terminal 3, they are now operating alongside their alliance partners American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines and Royal Jordanian which have long been based there.

All Qantas operations and BA flights serving Singapore and Australia follow into Terminal 3 later this year. This will bring all the alliance's on-line carriers from across all five of London Heathrow's passengers terminals into just two - Terminal 3 and Terminal 5, where the rest of BA's flights are now based.

Terminal 3 nearing the end of a massive GBP1 billion (US$1.5 billion) improvement programme to bring it up to standards similar to the Terminal 5, so all oneworld airlines at Heathrow can offer their customers a state-of-the-art passenger experience whether they are flying to or from London, or transferring there between oneworld airline flights.

BA's flights between London Heathrow and Malaga and Vienna will operate from the UK airport's Terminal 3 from 29 March, while its services to Atlanta, Nice and Toulouse will switch to Terminal 5.
BA switches terminals at Paris CDG: British Airways has moved its operations at Paris CDG alongside those of its oneworld partners American Airlines and Cathay Pacific in Terminal 2A. It leaves Royal Jordanian as the only other oneworld carrier using Terminal 2B. Japan Airlines is based in Terminal 2F. The only other alliance members serving the airport, Finnair and Malév Hungarian Airlines, use the Schengen-equipped Terminal 2D.

American to relocate alongside most oneworld partners at Shanghai Pudong: American Airlines is to relocate its operations at Shanghai Pudong this Sunday (29 March), moving from Terminal 1 to the newer Terminal 2, where it will be alongside most of its oneworld partners, smoothing connections between their flights.

Its transfer will leave just one oneworld partner in Terminal 1, with Japan Airlines remaining there to facilitate smooth connections with China Eastern, with which it code-shares extensively.

In Terminal 2, American, which flies to the airport daily from Chicago O'Hare, will join all the other oneworld carriers serving the airport - British Airways, Cathay Pacific and its Dragonair sister, Finnair and Qantas, who all moved to Terminal 2 following its opening a year ago. American will offer its premium passengers access to Dragonair and Cathay Pacific's lounge.

BA offers more space in Club Europe: British Airways is now offering passengers in its Club Europe (shorthaul Business Class) cabin more space by always leaving empty the middle seat in its rows of three - guaranteeing all passengers in this cabin a window or aisle seat.

JAL to offer its new Business and Premium Economy on more routes: Japan Airlines is to offer its award-winning business class, the JAL Shell Flat Seat, on four more routes. They will be launched on flights serving Mexico and Vancouver from 1 September, and Milan and Rome from November. Also, the airline will be rolling out the latest in its in-flight seats, the JAL First Class Suite, the Executive Class JAL Shell Flat Neo and the JAL Premium Economy Class seats on the routes from Tokyo Narita to Chicago and Los Angeles by November 2009.

BA changes check-in baggage policy from 1 April: British Airways is making changes to its check-in baggage policy with effect from 1 April, with a standard maximum dimension to be applied for all passengers worldwide and a set additional fee for larger items and some special items.

The maximum dimensions for items to be checked in worldwide from 1 April without incurring additional charges will be 90 cm x 75 cm x 43 cm (35.5 ins x 29.5 ins x 16 ins). Items bigger than that will incur an additional fee of GBP25 - but the airline will not accept any items larger than 240 cm x 75 cm x 65 cm (94.5 ins x 29.5 ins x 25.6 ins). BA is also introducing a handling charge of GBP25 for firearms. Maximum weight allowances are unaffected.

Royal Jordanian activates in-flight internet and mobile phone service: Royal Jordanian has activated in-flight mobile phone and internet connections. The service, provided in connection with supplier OnAir, is now available on one of the airline's Airbus A319s, flying on routes serving Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and India.

oneworld carriers take top honours at Amsterdam: oneworld carriers have been presented have taken two of the three awards presented by Amsterdam's Schiphol to airlines serving the airport for their "outstanding contribution to passenger transport over the past year". Cathay Pacific received the airport's Passenger Airline Award, in recognition of its roll out of its new First Class product and "its consistent commitment over the years to high service quality, both on the ground and in the air". Japan Airlines was honoured as the airport's most punctual longhaul carrier.

American to be first major to participate in Climate Leaders programme: American Airlines is to participate in the Climate Leaders programme of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) "as part of its continued commitment to environmentally-responsible business practices". American is the first major passenger airline to join the programme.

Climate Leaders is a collaboration of business and the EPA to develop comprehensive climate change strategies. Members commit to reducing their impact on the global environment by setting ambitious greenhouse gas reduction goals to be achieved over the next five to 10 years and reporting their progress to the EPA annually.

American has committed to a 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gasses by 2025 and will work closely with Climate Leaders to set a mid-range goal to help meet this long-range target.

Aviation alliances Skyteam and OneWorld looking at Indian carriers

12 June, 2007:

The Indian airline space is being seen as bullish by two global airline alliances, says a report. The alliances, SkyTeam and OneWorld, have in fact kicked off preliminary discussions with Indian carriers to attract them into their respective teams, the report added.

According to a SkyTeam official, the alliance has already held discussions with Air India, Jet Airways, and Kingfisher about joining the alliance. The alliance feels that the potential of having an Indian airline in the alliance has grown and an Indian airline would join the SkyTeam. The alliance has made it a priority to finalise discussions with Indian carriers and select a partner, the report added.

Meanwhile, industry observers feel that the Indian aviation industry is currently going through a phase of consolidation. The Jet-Sahara deal was followed by the Air India-Indian merger and then the Kingfisher-Air Deccan deal. They believe that the aviation scene in India would take at least three to four years to stabilise. This in turn would in effect dictate the alliance partnerships, it is learnt. The SkyTeam has ten airlines as members including Aeroflot, Air France, Alitalia, Continental Airlines, KLM and Northwest Airlines, while OneWorld has members like British Airways, American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Qantas, and Royal Jordanian.

However, going by aviation industry reports, state-owned Air India has already declared its intention of joining the third group, Star Alliance. Analysts see India, China and Brazil as potential growth markets and the global airline alliances are expected to see more participation from these nations.

Adding to the prospects, another major alliance, OneWorld, has said that the huge local and regional market coming up in the Indian subcontinent would have to be considered when thinking of an extending the alliance. With India soon to become a major aviation hub in the next two to five years, the potential for an alliance is high.

I think the One World decal advertising scheme is much more effective than the Star Alliance one.

But it's too bad that I'll only fly Start Alliance for the foreseeable future.

I think OneWorld did a great job with their alliance livery since the airline is clearly visible on the aircraft unlike the other alliances. American Airlines is my favorite airline so I'm happy to see them showing their allegiance to OneWorld:

Now if they can also dedicate an MD-80 to the OneWorld livery, I would be very excited.
