Air India to delay joining date for Star Alliance to Mar-2011

Air India reportedly announced plans to delay its proposal to join the Star Alliance from Dec-2010 to up to Mar-2011, as the full integration of Air India and Indian Airlines’ IT systems with SITA may not be completed until then (Business Standard, 01-May-2010). The integration is necessary to give the carrier a uniform passenger scheduling system, passenger handling and sales and marketing functions and allow it to operate under a single code.
