Tunisair alliance

The years have been tough the the Tunisian flag carrier airline, after the revolution it's stock price when to 1.020DT aka (less than 1€), but then every thing became quite fine the operations took place in a perfect way since it is not possible for an airline to get through tough times like that and still survive without firing employees, non the less Tunisair have been delaying the liveries of the A330 since 2011 but a press release from the airline stated that the Airline will receive it's first A330-200 from toulouse in the summer of 2015 and will begin it's operations to north america in June. The A330 will be fitted with wifi and separated in 2 classes Business (AKA Golf) :24 (2-2-2) and Economy :242 seats (2-4-2), still it is not going to operate Montreal Pierre Trudeau airport on a daily basis only twice per week, so the Aircraft schedule per week (rotations) is like this : 2 Tunis - Dubai, 2 Tunis - Paris Orly, 3 Tunis - Istanbul Ataturk, Medina seasonal.
And for the cherry on top tunisair is finalizing it's paper work to be a full member of Oneworld alliance, meaning that flying Tunisair will be much grater also knowing that One world members are all great airline and they are deserting every single continent in the world. Back in the day tunisair wanted to be a part of Skyteam but the Alliance founder which Airfrance didn't approve the the Tunis Paris route therefore the contact was canceled by Tunisair itself. But from 2006 the airline has been a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organization which is constructed only by national arab Airlines : Libya Afriqiyah Airways , Algeria Air Algérie , United Arab Emirates Air Arabia , Egypt Air Cairo , Egypt EgyptAir (SA) , United Arab Emirates Emirates , United Arab Emirates Etihad Airways , Bahrain Gulf Air , Iraq Iraqi Airways , Kuwait Kuwait Airways , Libya Libyan Airlines , Lebanon Middle East Airlines (ST) , Oman Oman Air , Palestinian National Authority Palestinian Airlines , Qatar Qatar Airways (OW) , Morocco Royal Air Maroc , Jordan Royal Jordanian (OW) , Saudi Arabia Saudia (ST) , Sudan Sudan Airways , Syria Syrian Air , Lebanon TMA Cargo , Tunisia Tunisair , Yemen Yemenia .
