    I find the dissonance between the alliances and partnerships to be bizarre. Does it portend the end of alliances, or shifts in alliances? Why didn’t QF partner with CX, in the same alliance? Or QR if they are joining oneworld? And might not Air New Zealand have partnered with SQ or TG or even OZ (that seems appropriate somehow).

    If the partnerships are important to the business, shouldn’t the alliances also get aligned? Otherwise it somewhat messes up passengers as far as alliance benefits like bags and lounges and the like

    NZ going with CX is smart. It opens the entire door to China down the road. Neither SQ nor TG gives them that.

    Seth – any announcement yet on which North American routes Air New Zealand is going to increase using the LHR-HKG capacity?

    Aaaaah, now you can’t fly HKG-LHR-LAX on NZ. One of the most bizarre routes ever!
