UX also has a codeshare agreement with AM. AM codeshares on UX's CUN-MAD flights. There is potential for additional codeshares (UX could codeshare on AM's MEX-MAD, MTY-MAD and key domestic routes, while AM could codeshare on UX's main domestic and intra-UE routes). Who will be sponsoring UX's association? AF?

UX's associate membership is being sponsored by AF which means that UX's FF program will be Flying Blue (just like OS and LO both use LH's Miles and More).
KQ will be sponsored by KL, RO by AZ, while COPA will have CO as its sugar daddy...
Associate carriers need to offer lounge access, mileage earning ability, and enter into some codeshare agreements...

I don't really think that UX have now the standards for becoming a Skyteam member or associate. I flew some weeks ago BCN-MAD and they were selling the food, and beverages just as a low cost airline. I wouldn't like a Skyteam member to be as miserable as that.

Quoting 777klm (Reply 5): Now we're talking about alliances... I was always wondering why SAA, Emirates, SN Brussels, Turkish and any Chinese airlines are not in an alliance. Most of them have damn good networks.
SAA and China Southern are in the ways of joining star and Sky respectively.
