  1. LATAM Cancels Joint Venture Plans With IAG The LATAM Airlines Group has given up on its plans to form an association with the International Airlines Group (IAG) after having decided to leave the Oneworld alliance. The South American based Airline had decided on Wednesday, December 4th, 2019 to cancel the planned joint venture with the owners of British Airways and Iberia according to Aviation website FlightGlobal. [...] Santiago, Chile – December 6, 2019. “LATAM Airlines Group and International Airlines Group (IAG; the parent company of British Airways and Iberia) have decided that they will not implement their proposed joint business agreement (JBA). The decision was made for commercial reasons and in the context of changes in the aviation market since the JBA was first announced in January 2016. “Both airline groups are committed to maintaining their longstanding relationship as well as serving customers on both sides of the Atlantic. All existing bilateral interline, codeshare, lounge access and frequent flyer agreements between the carriers will remain in place, with no impact on customers. “LATAM has informed the relevant competition authorities about this decision.” Notícia completa em: https://simpleflying.com/latam-iag-jv-cancel/ Será que veremos alguma movimentação em direção a Air France-KLM e Virgin?
  2. Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker doubled down on his word that the airline could leave the Oneworld Alliance. And, the final decision could come sooner than expected. During a press conference at ITB Berlin on Wednesday following the unveiling of Qatar’s new economy seat, Al Baker said that the carrier will make its final decision on whether or not to leave the alliance within the next two months. “In the matter of a month or two, we will give you the news if we are going to stay or withdraw [from Oneworld],” Al Baker said. “I think it is the latter that will happen.” Since 2015, Qatar has threatened to leave Oneworld, though that tone has come in spurts. More recently, as of October 2018, Al Baker’s harsh exit words have hit stronger and more often, as he’s doubled down on his stance that the Middle Eastern carrier will depart. During Wednesday’s press conference, Al Baker insinuated that the carrier will leave, and when it does, it’ll have a lasting affect on the state of the alliance. “If we leave Oneworld, we will create a big hole for them in their entire connectivity,” Al Baker said. Al Baker’s voiced his frustration with certain members of the alliance — specifically, though not explicitly mentioning, American Airlines and Qantas — for not treating Qatar with the same respect as the other members. “We have given them breathing space to get their act together,” he said. “As an airline, we will demand respect and not submit to anybody trying to bully us.” By the sound of it, things haven’t improved and Qatar could soon see its way out of the alliance. If it does indeed leave Oneworld, the move could have negative consequences for American Airlines and British Airways flyers who have long earned AAdvantage and Avios miles, as well as elite-qualifying credits when flying with Qatar. https://thepointsguy.com/news/qatar-oneworld-decision-2-months/?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_term=editorial&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=100000283516778 ________________________________ Vamos ver se não é mais uma bravata do AAB. A empresa anunciou novos destinos para 2019: Izmir, Malta, Rabat, Davao, Lisboa, Mogadishu e Langkawi. Há outros sete destinos a serem anunciados.
  3. Oneworld to open its own network of airport lounges from 2019 by David Flynn | February 1, 2019 The Oneworld alliance will open its own network of Oneworld-branded airline lounges at key airports around the world, with an inaugural ribbon-cutting in the second half of 2019 and two more lounges likely to follow in 2020. Oneworld hasn't revealed which airport will host that debutante lounge, but alliance CEO Rob Gurney tells Australian Business Traveller that several airports are in contention “and in the middle of this year we will be announcing the first Oneworld lounge.’ “We’ve actually got three we are pursuing, we just haven’t decided what the first one is going to be – it could be any one of those.” Speaking to Australian Business Traveller on the sidelines of a press conference in London to mark the alliance's 20th anniversary, Gurney said the lounges would focus on airports or terminals without a home carrier which belongs to Oneworld. “The idea is that we develop these where no single airline has a massive presence, but we have multiple airlines flying into the same airport, maybe with daily flights,” Gurney explains. “So while collectivity we (as Oneworld) have a lot of flights, no single airline could justify the cost of the lounge.” “We think there’s around 15 to 30 opportunities globally which fall into that category, although some of these are a long way out – some are driven by terminal development such as Sao Paulo, Beijing Daxing, Frankfurt, Paris, New York JFK and even Heathrow.” Oneworld’s rollout would be similar to the approach adopted by competing alliances Star Alliance and SkyTeam. The closest that currently exists is a business class lounge at Los Angeles' Tom Bradley International Airport which was launched as a joint project between Qantas, British Airways and Cathay Pacific, and is managed by Qantas. Gurney tells Australian Business Traveller that the Oneworld-branded lounges will be an integrated “premium lounge with a very high quality experience” and open to business class and first class passengers as well as top-tier frequent flyers holding each member airline’s equivalent of Oneworld Emerald and Sapphire status (such as Qantas Platinum and Gold, Cathay Pacific’s Macro Polo club Gold and Diamond, and British Airways Executive Club Silver and Gold). However, he adds that “if there are airports that have a particularly high concentration of first class passengers” a seperate first class lounge would be considered. Obvious contenders for future Oneworld lounges will be airports where Oneworld member airlines are working towards 'co-location' of facilities including check-in desks and departure gates. "Oneworld aims to bring its member airlines operating at all airports worldwide together under one roof, to smooth transfers for passengers connecting between different carriers’ flights, wherever the opportunities are available and wherever it makes sense," Gurney explains. “We are working on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities at some of our most important gateways in Asia, the Americas and Europe with the aim of delivering the best experience for customers at each of these locations.” This includes Sao Paulo, where all five Oneworld members currently flying to the Brazilian mega-hub expect to co-locate all of their domestic, regional and international operations in the new Terminal 3A, which is slated to open in mid-2021. Also on that list would be Frankfurt, where the new Terminal 3 – expected to open in 2023 – will likely see a single Oneworld lounge shared by the ten alliance Oneworld airlines flying out of Frankfurt. David Flynn travelled to London as a guest of Qantas and Oneworld. https://www.ausbt.com.au/oneworld-to-open-its-own-network-of-airport-lounges?utm_source=hero Pergunta: porquê abrir um lounge OneWorld se GRU é Hub da Latam?

  6. Alaska Airlines is considering joining the Oneworld marketing alliance dominated by American Airlines, British Airways, and Qantas, though likely not as a full-fledged member, its chief commercial officer told investment analysts on Tuesday. Alaska is among the only larger North American airlines not tied to one of the three major global alliances. In the past, that has served it well, allowing it to enter marketing agreements with any airline. But after severing its ties with four major SkyTeam airlines in the past two years, including Delta Air Lines, and with eight of its 17 current agreements with Oneworld carriers, now could be the right time. If it joins, Alaska would become the alliance’s second “Oneworld Connect” member, along with Fiji Airways, which joined in June. Oneworld created this second-tier opportunity earlier this year, hoping it could help make membership more palatable to smaller regional airlines like Alaska, which generally don’t like to incur the major costs of alliance membership. On a “Connect” airline, passengers with Oneworld elite status may not receive all the perks they’re accustomed to, but they may receive some special treatment. The disclosure comes as Alaska seeks to bolster its global offerings without buying wide-body aircraft or flying farther abroad than Costa Rica. It knows its core customers in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles often fly long-haul routes, and it would prefer those customers fly Alaska’s partners to do so, rather than United Airlines or Delta Air Lines. “There’s a Oneworld Connect membership that we’re looking it,” chief commercial officer Andrew Harrison told analysts. “The whole goal here is to ensure that when people in the cities we serve travel internationally they are on our partners so they stay in our program.” Oneworld has scheduled a press conference Dec. 5 in New York to announce its “first full member airline recruit for six years,” but as Harrison did not mention a full membership, Alaska may not be the subject of the event. In addition to possibly joining the alliance as a ‘Connect’ member, Alaska soon plans to sell tickets for some of its global partner airline on its website, so a customer in Los Angeles might buy a Qantas fare on alaskaair.com. This should help customers better understand the two airlines have a close relationship, Harrison said. “You would be stunned how many people who don’t know if they flew Qantas that they’ll get Alaska miles,” he said. Essentially, he said, Alaska wants it flyers to understand they can fly long-haul without leaving the airline’s loyalty points-driven ecosystem. It also wants them to know they can redeem Alaska miles for valuable free tickets on partner airlines.. “The benefit to Alaska Airlines with these global partners is when people start to think Alaska, they are starting to think global,” Harrison said. “They are starting to make their plans around flying on our global partners. We are looking at ways to get more seamless.” There is, perhaps, another benefit. While Alaska often competes against the big three U.S. global airlines, within California it has another pesky competitor — Southwest Airlines. Southwest has a robust intra-California schedule, but it doesn’t have any global partners. Alaska is hopeful that a customer who flies from Los Angeles to London on British Airways — and earns Alaska miles — also will chose Alaska to fly from Los Angeles to San Jose, California even if Southwest has a more favorable schedule. “Competitively in California, we have something one of our major competitors does not have,” Harrison said. Here are some other takeaways from the investor event: WAIT AND SEE ON FUEL Remember the big fuel panic of 2018? On Oct. 3, the price of a barrel of crude reached $75, and investors were concerned airline profits would drop. They implored carriers to raise fares and fees, which is how the cost of one checked bag went from $25 to $30 on every major airline except Southwest. Two months later, oil is sharply down. On Tuesday afternoon, crude was trading at less than $52 in New York, and some investors are salivating. If it stays this low, airlines could rack up unexpectedly big profits during the usually-weak fourth quarter. But Alaska isn’t sure what to make of this development, CFO Brandon Pedersen said. “It was a mere 70 days ago that we were complaining about our inability to pass on the ridiculously high fuel prices and our inability to generate sufficient returns with fuel prices where they were,” he said. “We have had a gigantic decline in fuel prices. The reality is, I don’t know necessarily know what to think of that. Could it be 70 days and back up to $70 a barrel?” If Alaska makes higher returns than expected, Pedersen said the airline will then decide how to allocate the profits. “We can decide whether to deploy it out to shareholders, to reinvest it in the business, to hold it on the balance sheet, to pay down debt,” he said. FREQUENT FLYER PROGRAM Delta CEO Ed Bastian is fond of saying that any business that gives away more than half of its best product for free is not setting itself up for success. But Alaska executives continue to think differently, saying they want to keep setting aside at least 50 percent of their first class seats for elite-level frequent flyers. In addition, Harrison said, Alaska plans to keep allotting more frequent flyer miles than its competitors to customers who buy its cheapest tickets. Alaska is the only U.S. airline that still gives frequent flyer miles based on how far a customer flies, rather than how much the passengers pays for the ticket. Alaska is betting its frequent flyer program helps differentiate it from the competition, just like Southwest’s ‘Bags Fly Free’ provides it an advantage. “Southwest could also immediately make a lot more money if they charged bag fees,” Harrison said. “Every airline needs to play its own game and its own business model. The minute you start mimicking or being a me-too, you lose who you are. The generous loyalty program at the heart of our DNA is rewarding to a lot of people that we need to fill our airplanes.” NO CHANGES TO HAWAII PLAN On its last earnings call, Alaska reported some softness in its Hawaii markets, but while the routes have not markedly improved, Harrison said he is not worried about their long-term viability. One analyst wondered whether Alaska might drive greater profits by adding short-haul flights within the Hawaiian islands, such as between Maui and Oahu. For now, those are basically monopoly routes for Hawaiian Airlines, though Southwest has said it will probably challenge Hawaiian on some routes within in a couple of years. Harrison said there’s no chance, pointing to three airlines — Aloha Airlines, Island Air and Go! — that have gone out of business in the past decade trying to compete with Hawaiian. “History has shown that one airline does well, and with two, someone ends up in bankruptcy or out of business,” he said. “At the end of the day, we are focused on our core business.” https://skift.com/2018/11/27/alaska-airlines-hints-it-may-finally-join-the-oneworld-alliance/
