I'd personally love to see the C-series, but even if it does end up being the E-190, I don't think too many of us will complain (although as has been already noted, current E-190 operators don't seem...

Last checked, they still seemed interested in staying out of the three major alliances. So while they're getting closer to Delta, it doesn't seem to be translating to Skyteam, at least not yet.

I think I'm arguing semantics at this point so I won't bother. Regardless of how exactly it's defined, should Cathay come over to Star, Dragonair would, in all likelihood, join as well.

As cool as it would be to see Cathay join, I don't see it happening in the near future. Even if they did join, I could very realistically see Singapore Airlines consider leaving.

Also worth noting, if you value the star alliance, US Airways may still be on its way out. Staying with US Airways will put you in oneworld should the merger with AA go through.
