As I have taken advantage of several previous Avis promotions with them, I would enjoy a place to discuss their OW entry and current promotions.

Additionally, AB is starting additional service to LAS in May

There is no question on this and I wonder why it's not yet resolved! AB is a large airline in a large market and is joining a major alliance.

The voting process is two weeks long unless everyone completes their vote earlier.

In principle I support the forum being created. I generally feel all members of an alliance deserve a forum of their own, not burried in a regional generic forum. This is a problem now with CZ, MU, CI, and CA. All are alliance members, CZ and CA for quite a long time now, but trying to find any useful information is difficult because they are all shoved into a generic forum.

Aside from current followers, AB will become a lot more interesting to OneWorld flyers very soon and having a forum will make it far easier for people wanting information to find it.

100% correct.

I support the idea as well.

I also say yes for an AirBerlin Forum. For instance for bmi we have a separated forum, too. The situation of AirBerlin in Germany is kind the same as it was with bmi in the UK.

Germany:
Lufthansa flag carrier and *Alliance member
AirBerlin 2nd largest German Carrier becoming OneWolrd Member

UK:
British Airways flag carrier and OneWorld Member
bmi 2nd largest (?) british carrier and *Alliance member

In addition AirBerlin has a successful operation outside of Germany with a hub in Palma de Mallorca.

I support new forum, but please make it joint Air Berlin / Niki forum. They share FFP and AB now owns 100% in HG.
