    TOKYO, June 1, 2011 – ANA, Japan’s largest airline, and Deutsche Lufthansa AG, Europe’s leading airline, are announcing that they are launching a strategic joint venture with each other on Japan-Europe routes after ANA receiving Anti-Trust Immunity (ATI) approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport. This latest agreement between the two Star Alliance members follows the launch of a similar joint venture between ANA and United Airlines on trans-Pacific routes in April.

    Does this mean we could see elite bonuses on LH flights just as we do now with UA/CO flights?

    Yes. That would be the general idea. Judging by the UA/CO and NH ATI, that's about all you could expect from a elite respective.
