SHANGHAI AIRLINES is conducting an amicable divorce regarding its arrangement with Star Alliance. Shanghai has been aquired by China Eastern, itself a Skyteam member. Air China continues with Star. The split becomes finite on 31 October with the real question whether Shanghai joins Skyteam or succumbs to overtures by oneworld. It is more than likely Shanghai will finish up as part of Skyteam although nothing is ever clear with the Chinese airlines and the sibling arrangements. Travellers on Shanghai Airlines will have a period of perhaps two years without alliance benefits but existing Star Alliance awards on the airline for travel after October will be honoured. www.shanghai-air.com
