FAQ


When is [insert airline here] joining oneworld???
Which airlines are lined up to join?
See list below and https://www.oneworld.com/member-airlines/overview
Another useful page for official announcements is: https://www.oneworld.com/news-information/oneworldnews

Current members elect (officially announced and currently aligning processes):
AT - Royal Air Maroc

Expected members:
EI - Aer Lingus
EI's new owners, IAG (owners of existing members BA+IB), stated before acquisition that they fully intended EI to rejoin, and have restated the intention since completing the purchase. EI has not yet been publically 'invited' by oneworld but should join eventually. When? When it's announced... When will EI become a full member of Oneworld?

“We don’t have a specific timeline. We’re working as quickly as we can," he said.

PZ - LATAM Airlines Paraguay (TAM Mercosur)
An affiliate of JJ, who joined in 2014. The press release from when JJ joined said PZ would be "soon". We're still waiting: Has TAM Mercosur (PZ) joined OW by now?

Potential members:
Well, that's what the discussion below is all about! Heard a rumour? Think oneworld should chase a particular airline to join or switch? Make your case!

Its split though at the moment?
BA - Daily service moves to PKX
AY - New 3/wk to PKX, daily to PEK
AA - Still listed at PEK, but reportedly considering, and has CZ relationship
CX - Still listed at PEK, some suggestions it might split CX vs KA fleet, CA ownership
QF/QR/S7 - Seemingly remaining at PEK - mostly O&D, other Chinese airports better for domestic transfers

I strongly believe AA will move to PKX because this is key to cashing in on its CZ investment. Basically, CZ's strong presence in CAN and URC doesn't provide any strategic benefit to AA, but its 40% of operations at the --future-- largest airport in the world sure does. While it's true that PKX is on the wrong side of town wrt where most people want to be, that's changing, ground transportation options a[[ear to be decent if not good, and anyone who actually wants to go do Dallas nonstop will suck it up and follow AA. I also predict, albeit much less strongly, that BA will ink a meaningful bilateral agreement with CZ. They are going to need all the help they can get filling planes, and this would allow BA to sell tickets to many destinations that CX/KA don't serve (not to mention HKG is at a geographical disadvantage).
