Talk that the Cathay Dragon brand is to be retired


Confirmed unfortunately. KA is no more.

 
Interjet Mexico looks like it is on it's last legs.Cancelling flights because they can't pay for fuel.

Sad. I was impressed with them when I flew to Cuba and back. Best whY I've had in my thankfully limited experience of whY in the last 20 years.

Oh well, I was unlikely to use them again, anyway. But still...

Using their expert knowledge and specialised tools, the Frequent Flyer Concierge team at Frequent Flyer Concierge will help you book a great trip that maximises the value for your points.

I guess and just for the record and archives of this thread, VA1 formally folded on Tuesday, dissolved and becoming a fully owned subsidiary of Bain.

Any news on what is happening to Virgin Atlantic by the way?
 
One out of left field.Could JAL and ANA merge?

It would certainly make for a top notch airline! best seats in economy. Best services for premium economy (automatic lounge access, no status required), excellent business class seating across both carriers, both top-10 first classes.

If it is ANA that goes Star Alliance is looking much weaker given Asian seems to be exiting
 
Same for OW if it is JAL that goes.CX has major problems now with KA gone and the early takeover of HKG by China,MH not much and may fold and UL a bit peripheral for Australia-Asia travel.Would leave QF as the major Asian presence in OW for Australians so they would need to add more destinations.

Yes Qantas may need to add destinations, so that OW have a strong Asian presence but they already have routes to Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia/Singapore.
 
With all these potential mergers, are we going to end up with 2 global alliances?

Remember the alliances are playthings of US and European carriers, where there are 3 dominant legacy carriers (US) and 3 dominant legacy carrier groupings (Europe). So unless there's mergers in those geographies, it's difficult to see it reducing to just 2 global alliances.

But maybe we'll more relationships between individual carriers cross-alliance (like QF have with EK, MU, KL/AF).
