Just a small correction: It is spelled Tallinn
But code-share flights to Tallinn are little strange. OV (49% owned by SAS) has very strong cooperation with SAS and very many of their flights are codeshared with SK (and opposite, there are also some SK flights with OV numbers). The official OV bonusprogram is SAS Eurobonus. OV TLL-CDG flight is on the other hand codeshared with AF (making thus possible to earn Star bonuspoints on SkyTeam flight .

Really does not make any sense to me...
It makes perfect sense to me. KL is owned by the AF group hence you would codeshare on TLL-AMS (and in the mean time drive OV out of this market). Moreover, one can be be 100% confident that if TLL-AMS is becoming a succes and their are no contractual obligations between AF and OV one will see the end of the codeshare on OV by AF soon.

As far as I know OV is the oeprator thus impossible to earn Star points on a Skyteam flight (when flying with the AF flightnumber one receives Skyteam points only)
