    As I just posted over at Gary’s blog: Unless they open up more award space once they join OW, though, their addition will be pretty much non-news — at least on the redemption side. I’m GRU-based and have only ever been able to redeem on JJ once, GRU/EZE/GRU, and it’s not for lack of checking! 🙂

    Oneworld keeps touting Latin America (since that’s their strength) but completely forgot that it’s mainland China that’s the world’s next superpower and has 20% of the world’s population.

    Oneworld is the only alliance that doesn’t have any carriers based inside mainland China, and oneworld is also the only alliance that doesn’t have any carriers based in Africa.

    @Jackie – Actually, British Airways owns Comair, which is based in Africa and a Oneworld affiliate member.

    @Miles – I don’t know if i’d count Comair. The have a very limited route network and almost all their flights are within South Africa. *A has EgyptAir, Ethiopian, and South African airlines. ST has Kenya Airways. OneWorld really can’t compare.

    This is awesome! Can’t wait to have BUE-ASU for 4,500 Avios instead of 12,500 MileagePlus each way and BUE-GRU for only 10,000.

    But again it comes down to TAM only releasing award space ~90 days before travel dates to their partners.

    Can’t you already fly those routes ex-Buenos Aires on 4M?
