  • Ethopian joins Star Alliance!

    Ethiopian Airlines, one of Africa's leading carriers, has joined the Star Alliance -- a group of 28 international airlines -- to boost its reach, an official said Wednesday.

    I wonder who their main sponsor was? Anyway, great news for all involved! Congrats to Ethopian!
    Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.

    That article is wrong.

    Ethiopian Airlines hasn't joined Star Alliance yet. It has been accepted as future member. Its sponsor is Lufthansa.

      Cool! I can't wait to see their 777 soon! And in a special livery perhaps (900th 777)

        Hmmmmm... seems like the three big alliances are beginning to divide up the planet. OneWorld gets South America (more or less), StarAlliance gets Africa (more or less) and SkyTeam gets Asia (more or less)

          How about Star Alliance North/South America, SkyTeam Europe/Asia, and oneworld Australia/North America/Asia

            Well - I'd say they are quite equally represented in North America and Europe. As for Asia, I wouldn't say that having Cathay/JAL/Kingfisher contitutes a real foothold for OneWorld. Star Alliance has MUCH better representation in Asia than OneWorld.
            And Australia - well, right now there's only one serious international airline there, so I wouldn't consider that a "battleground"...
