I booked this for my parents, they flew two weeks ago, had a great experience. JFK-MXP is an ex-QR a330.

All they're wide-body aircraft are currently ex-QR planes. They have a bunch of 787s on order

Correct, although I think they only have two routes with them currently.

On revenue J, I believe they have a published fare to TLV connecting with El Al.  They don't have an economy class fare (yet?)

They're not part of One-World so AA can't book them, IB is supposed to be able to but they didn't show online when I checked and they can only book what shows online.

How is it that they can be booked on BA? What alliance are they with? Is it non-aligned like AS

Meridiana (former name of Air Italy) has been a partner of BA and IB for years, not part of alliance.

Thanks. That explains it a bit. Now question is if IB can actually book.

Shouldn't be too hard on their lungs, given Alitalia's situation.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

One ways?
I know its the wrong thread, but is there a list of partners with IB that can or cannot be booked one way?

Update: Seems like only IB, IB Express, BA, Air Italy, and Vueling can be booked OW. Anyone have different experience online?
