What will happen to the brandname after the takeover???? Will KLM live and stay on as a separate airline under a separate brandname? Or will KLM be painted in Air France's colours and we will be seeing Air France flying from AMS to places like HKG, KUL etc?

FLYSSC, I just hope that you like this topic, because it's going to come up over and over again for the next 5 years.
I mean, no offense guys, but use the search engine, because this one tends to get pretty heated. I think it could be put to rest before someone gets killed, or some dutch commando sneaks into CDG and repaints all AF planes in KLM livery out of frustration!

Firstly, please do not give our Dutch friends too hard a time: I was lucky enough to live in their wonderful country for some years (hence the name SNNAMS!)
The vast majority of them are far more tolerant and far less racist than some of the comments I have seen on here.. come on guys... the KLM name aint going nowhere fast, and besides, consolidation of the brands should see a more pan-european name adopted if that ever happens.
In addition common sense dictates that an airport like Schiphol will not be degraded to regional airport status any time soon...
