    I have flights this coming Friday and returning on Monday. But I suspect a lot of things will change.

    Their press release states that "all schedules will be adhered to".

    Wishing you safe flights/travels ahead @WilliamQ and hopefully no disruptions. Cheers. :)

    Oops. To clarify, terminating 20K contracts and rehiring 12K of them under new conditions.

    I also wonder about MH's future in Oneworld...

    ...

    So, around 12.000 will be rehired, but at weaker conditions and on probably lower pay as well / or more working hours, same pay contracts / more part-time contracts. Still, doesn't sound good. We enjoy MH, it's a wonderful airline actually, but we equally understand there's a certain need to streamline operations, it's all about their survival now, especially in the face the "low-cost" operators eating MH's margins and any profit possibilities. Mr. Muller and Kasanah have their teeth "cut out", I sincerely hope that MH will manage to survive, to re-energize and yes, that they keep all their schedules/flight bookings made by passengers intact.

    Alliance memberships cost a lot of money, of course they can also bring a lot of benefits, but as an airline which wants/needs to survive, such equations might be thrown out "of the window" when their Oneworld membership doesn't provide for the benefits/advantages they've hoped for in the first place.
