Etihad / Air Berlin and oneworld / Lufthansa Agreements

Hi all,

Does anybody read, like I do, that Air Berlin's days in Oneworld are numbered, following the announced agreement between EY/LH/AB which seems far wider than expected?

Not that it matters much, to me AB was always a problem regarding service, connections and baggage and it could not be relied upon to fit seamlessly within a OW itinerary.

EL in, AB out ? Probably a change for the better.

Too soon to know what the future holds, although I've been assuming to a degree AB's exit for a few months in my postings here and elsewhere:

However, your prediction of EL joining OneWorld seems rather "bold" : http://en.ellinair.com

As this is about airberlin and not so much AA, it has moved.
