    Thanks for the info…

    What is the liklihood / possibility that a Cathay, Qantas, or JAL would reevaluate their membership in OW?

    Would any of them believe that they could find a better home with Star or Skyteam?

    Would Skyteam or Star members agree that some of these OW members would be a good addition to their alliance, without too much overlap / conflict?

    with AirChina being in StarAlliance, Star may attempt to influence them to convince CathayPacific to jump ship

    CX currently doesn’t overlap with much of Star (except semi-proximity with Thai, but they target different markets anyway)

    Of the three airlines, the possibility you mention (CX to *) would be by far the most attractive to me as a UA / *A flyer….

    Qanatas / AA / BA will never leave OW…

    * already has acceptable coverage for the Australia / NZ, and Japan, with existing partners.
