Did Air France ever decide between Delta and Continental as a U.S. partner? If not, any ideas? I am guessing that Air France will join with Continental. It already has close ties with them, plus the possible connection to Northwest, Alitalia, and KLM as well.

Why should AF change an already beneficial alliance with Delta?

I agree with you Gnomon. It does not make sense to leave a beneficial alliance with Delta, but some experts felt that Air France would drop either Delta or Continental. That is why I asked. It would be great for Delta if Air France stayed in an alliance with them. It would really help them attract other partners.

It seems AF board of directors does think as "some experts". AF said a few months ago that they will announce in the forthcoming months which one of DL or CO will they drop.... A bigger thing is a stake: WINGS vs. QUALIFLYER. That is why they cannot keep their parterneship with both CO and DL...

AF will join WINGS, it is just a matter of time.
The only problem coul be that AF is too big for a medium size oriented Alliance, and also CDG is way too important compared to Malpensa and Schipol.
At the end though, they will sort things out and AF will be a WINGS carrier

Well, They chose Delta and that is a wise choice, Delta can do a better job feeding pax to AF Than CRAPinental.
