Who has flown every One World Carrier?

I am curious to know how many people have flown at least one flight with every one of the 13 member carriers of the One World Airline alliance?

There cannot be many fliers who have can claim to have checked off every One World Airline. As of now, I have now traveled with every One World airline except for S7

This alliance has taken me 37 times around the world, a a total of 1.5 million kilometres (968,000 miles). Altogether, that has been aboard 582 flights. From Hobart to Helsinki and Hawaii to Hong Kong and 150 other cities in between!

A huge chunk (two-thirds) of that travel has been with Qantas, followed by American and Cathay.

Next month, I will be able to claim that I have traveled with every One World partner, after I take four  S7 flights from Europe to Asia, across Russia.

I  also hasten to add that I have also traveled on ex One World members Aer Lingus, Air Berlin  and Malev.  Can I get a certificate or something?

My fave One World carrier?  Qatar Airways followed by Cathay and Qantas.

My least favourite? American- although people tell me they have improved. I will find out in December.

By contrast I have traveled with just ten of the 28 Star Alliance carriers. I do have flights booked for later in 2019 with ANA, Eva and TAP, none of which I have ever flown before  so that total will reach 13. Over at Skyteam, I have ridden with just six of the 19 members there.

  1. Never been on S7 or RJ before. Never flown Kingfisher when it was in operation either (I wished I had) as I do like the beer 🙂

  2. Did you do the original Oneworld promotion way back when in 1999-2000 when the alliance began? That was a fantastic promo and I was able to rack up almost 1/2 million miles across 4 programs (BA, AA, Asiamiles, Canadian Pacific) for around $1500. As I recall you had to fly one flight on each of the other carriers to get 100,000 mile bonus. I did it for 4 of the airlines. Other than the core AA, BA, IB, CP, CX, LA, AY I’ve also flown QF, QR, UL, JL and MH.
