Shanghai Airlines invited to become member of Star Alliance

also Qatar are now a partner which means you can earn destination miles though not membership miles!

More choice - great!!

Just a note, it'll be at least a year before you can earn points or redeem rewards on Shanghai Airlines, but this is good news. Also, Air China is said to be close to completing a deal, and recently South African airlines joined, giving Star Alliance a huge footprint in Africa which they didn't have before (and thus why I had to use American Express points to fly Continential for my 2005 trip to Tanzania).

Soon I'll be ready to redeem some of my close to 400,000 Aeroplan points for another reward.
