    • Hi Stuart – They originally announced a delay so that they could address some financial issues, and I’m not sure that they’ve made much progress. I suspect that’s why they haven’t joined oneworld yet. Another reason might be politics. They’re government owned and next year is an election, and some of the airline’s business decisions have become campaign issues.

      I’m looking forward to the day that we can redeem our AAdvantage miles on MH. Thanks for reading!
