    Interesting information. Personally I am pleased it looks more likely they will remain in OW.

    When Avianca and Taca announced they would be joining Star Alliance, the writing was pretty much on the wall. Now the key issue for me here is, will AS continue their partnership with the combined carrier? 😉

    That is something I hope to find out in the coming months.

    To what extent can Star Alliance dictate whether it is LATAM or TACA/Avianca which joins/remains? Brazil seems like the biggest market in which you’d want the strongest member. Given this ruling, if LATAM wants to remain in Star, wouldn’t it be easy to Star to change course on TACA/Avianca?

    If *A were to drop the possibility AV/TA to get LATAM and then in a few years admitted AV/TA, would LATAM be required to leave *A?

    They did drop AI, which looks like it is costing LH A380 landing rights.
