Swissair, Sabena, TAP Air Portugal, Turkish Airlines, AOM (French), Crossair (Swiss), Air Littoral, Air Liberte (both French), Air Europe (Italien), LOT Polish Airlines, Portugalia, Volare (Italian).
These are the members at the moment.
They codeshare with many airlines for example:
AA, South African (perhaps new member, because SAirGroup is stake-holder), Qantas, JAL, Thai (member of Star, still), Malasian Airlines, Cathay Pacific and others.

Continental isn't yet a member of the Wings Alliance. Although NW owns CO, CO hasn't join Wings (I've heard they will soon). The original members are NW and KL. AZ joined later.
To DeltaAirlines I would say that BA is also in talks with KLM about joining Wings or a merge Oneworld with Wings (at least the rumour was spread at an airline convention in Phoenix). So don't be sure BA will come to DL and AF.

Sorry, but NW controls CO. NW has all the preferential stocks (I think they're called class A stocks). Although these stocks represent somwhere around 15% of all stocks outstanding they give NW 51% of the voting rights, so NW controls CO. For the record:
Total stock outsanding:
54.2 million class B shares (1 vote per stock)
11.3 million class A shares (10 votes per stock)
total number of votes: 164.5 million
Norhwest has 8.66 million class A stock which means 86.6 million vote which is more than 50%.
Northwest and Continental agreed to a period of 6 years where NW wouldn't exercise its rights.
