• LATAM to leave the Oneworld alliance

    Sep 27, 2019, 05:48 PM

    It is interesting to hear that LATAM will move over to SkyTeam. Already, Aerolineas Argentinas is a member of SkyTeam, so you would have 2 competing members covering the same turf, within the same alliance. It will be interesting to see if Aerolineas moves out of SkyTeam. I have no info...
