    Air India fails to meet Star Alliance deadline:confused:

    Air India's integration into Star Alliance has been put “on hold”, after it failed to meet the alliance’s standards.

    The carrier's planned membership of the alliance was first announced in 2007, and it had been due to complete the joining process by last year.

    In May, however, Star Alliance had given Air India a deadline of July 31 (see online news May 10) to meet the minimum terms of its joining contract, which, as it has now emerged, it was unable to do.

    The decision to suspend the integration process was reached by the member airlines of Star Alliance and Air India itself, according to an official statement.

    The Indian airline failed to meet the minimum joining conditions that were contractually agreed in December 2007.
