It's not the first time AAB has threatened this, and I'm sure it won't be the last. I'd say "I'll believe it when I see it".

Couple of US airlines in the other alliances that AAB would also have issues with.

Change of Qatar leaving Oneworld? I'd rate it at many, many, many thousands to one.

As loose a canon as Sir Richard Branson. Like others, I’ll believe it when I see it.

It's not as easy as Qatar deciding they would like to join STAR and then switching over. There's a nomination and approval process by other carriers and the alliance would need to see value in Qatar's addition. I don't see support from LH, SQ nor UA. There are many remarks from AAB that should be taken lightly...such as their frequent new destination announcements!

He said that in 2015 too and he's still here. No harm in staying in OW. American and qantas will still try and stop Qatari regardless of alliance

OW wouldn't lose out much if Qatar Airways does leave the alliance. Qatar doesn't treat OW status in the same regard as the rest of the alliance members.
