I know it's probably purely speculative; but I'm looking at booking flights on Qantas/Emirates for January to Europe; should I try to do this before or after Thursday or is this totally immaterial?

Immaterial, the business partnership is for 5 years of which they are only 18 months through

You're assuming JohnnyBlack is wondering if the alliance between QF and EK would continue. If that is how you've read the question, then I would agree that it is immaterial.

But that is not how I read the question. My reading is that JohnnyBlack is wondering if Qantas will continue to fly it's own metal to London.

JohnnyBlack, what exactly is the angle of your question?

TRB I read it both ways but as JohnnyBlack didn't specify London I presumed he meant QF to DXB and then EK thereafter to Europe

Yeah quite an open-ended/speculative question so probably useless. But essentially whether there would be any ramifications for pricing/use of FF points/etc; however I expect there to be not such a direct link between strategic announcements and operational matters so quickly.
