    Will certainly be good if Virgin Blue can join Star. I know Star used to have reservations about it due to the business model of DJ - so certainly a positive.
    Something big is about to happen.

    *crosses appendages and prays to every Deity*

    *A has been missed since AN went under, leaving QF a virtual monopoly alliance wise.

    This would indeed be excellent news if they did manage to convince JB to have DJ join

    interesting, particularly the Board Meeting invite

    yet earlier in the year

    Virgin hints at signing up to SkyTeam

    At the moment DJ probably gets feed from both skyteam and *alliance. If they shift to one or the other presumably will only drive some traffic away.

    Can't see Delta being pleased

    If this goes through, along with the DL and EY deals, Virgin and Velocity will go from also-rans to being ridiculously connected.

    Can't help but think if something will give.

    Well crazydave brings this article to AFFs attention,JB is quoted as saying he expects a decision soon and there is this-
    Exodus of senior staff from Qantas continues
    And a guy to supervise services including the Lounge.
    And Christmas is associated with a star-Hmmmm.
    All I want for Christmas is..............

    What's this and Why?
    I was at a presentation by Bruce Parton (Air NZ Group GM "Australasia") on Saturday morning and he alluded to the likelihood that NZ and DJ would be permitted by the regulatory authorities to get their act together with an announcement on that imminent. He did state that all parties who initially lodged objections have dropped them.

    Interesting if it happens with *A; I'd become top level with two *A FF programs rather than with *O wich would have been more probable in years gone past ...

    Hopefully this would allow you to fly VB...but award points to a *A program with a decent FF program, unlike VB's which is poor.

    Yes please bring DJ to *A. That would be huge. I expect that DJ will revamp Velocity Rewards at the same time once it is the case.
    But expect their alliance with Delta to get dropped if this becomes reality.

    I'm hoping they give the program a makeover as part of the current review.

    Even if they were to go down the *A path, I suspect it will be quite a while before it happens. A good year, if not longer.
    Something big is about to happen.
