What are the pro’s and con’s of being in an alliance?


Discussion board on the alliance overview page.


Alliance specific conditions - for example minimum aircraft age.

Some other airlines may not IL with you because a member of your alliance is a direct competitor for them (in which case you shouldn’t really IL with them either).

Other notes:

Alliance often aid exclusive IL contracts between two airlines, but this can also be achieved without alliances. Some large airlines choose not to be part of alliances for this specefic reason.

All in all, the only functionality added is the discussion board, the rest is pretty much up to the individual members of the alliance.


Yeah, right, at the moment the alliance feature is more a gimmick than a really useful feature. It is nice to be part of one but won’t bring you any exclusive privileges. It depends which alliance you join, because some alliances are very keen on having the users work together very closely to join forces and schedule flights in such a way, that the maximum connection possibilities are offered while others just don’t really care that much.

It’s a bit like getting married- it could be heaven or it could be hell. On the other hand you could stay single :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
