I wish WS would just get on and join Skyteam. Delta are by far the most solid carrier in states and KL/AF have a very strong partnership in Europe, it would be great competition across the board in Canada to AC/LH.

There is no plan for WS to join SkyTeam. Both WS and DL don't want WS in SkyTeam.

WS is slated top bring reciprocal frequent flyer program benefits between WS Rewards and DL SkyMiles as part of the JV rollout.

After WS completes the DL JV and reciprocity, they are slated to do something with AF/KL Group. After that maybe KE. That is the extent that WS will do reciprocity.

In support of my earlier tweet, the guy that had been developing Alliance strategy at WestJet just jumped over to AA.

Quote:
FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines announced today that Brian Znotins has been named Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning. In this role, Znotins will guide the development and implementation of American’s global network and hub strategy, including all route planning, slot management and long-range planning efforts. Znotins will report to Vasu Raja, American’s Senior Vice President of Network Strategy.

“Brian is one of the leading network planners in the world,” Raja said. “His ability to manage and maximize complex networks at scale as well as motivate his team makes him incredibly well-suited to thrive at American. We look forward to what he and the team will accomplish over the coming years.”

Znotins joins American from WestJet, where he spent the past three years as the airline’s Vice President of Network, Alliances and Corporate Development. During his time there, Znotins led a redesign of three critical hubs, drove schedule quality improvement, designed a Canada-U.S. joint venture and introduced a new strategy to reach the premium traveler market.

WestJet has been an place for displaced American airline management to work through their non-compete agreements since the very beginning. They're always coming and going I wouldn't read anything into it.
