Quoting Eastern023 (Reply 4): What is this means?. Accrue/ redeem mileage privileges under this status?.
Pretty sure it means that they get all the SkyTeam perks (such as priority boarding, check-in, mileage accrual/redemption, etc.) - big thing is they don't get a voting share in SkyTeam and they have to adopt one of the full member's FFP (for example, Copa uses OnePass; Kenya Airways uses FlyingBlue, and I think Air Europa will be using FlyingBlue as well since I think they were affiliated with Air France).

Kenya Airways was using KLM Flying Dutchman as FFP and moved to FlyingBlue when AF FrequencePlus and KLM Flying Dutchman merged.
AirEuropa is using FlyingBlue since June.
I recall reading somewhere that these 3 airlines will be part of the alliance by September. The whole situation is a bit curious as it is more advantageous for these airlines' frequent flyers than for the rest of the alliance.
