Hi Yassin, how are you? I see you are quite new to a.net, so (a little late) welcome to the forums.
Several threads dealing with the accession of the 3 associates have discussed the difference between full and associate membership. I believe the conclusion reached in all said discussions is that, basically, the associate members will have limited voting ability with respect to SkyTeam decisions. For purposes of customers (including frequent fliers), I think there is no real difference.

Hello EddieDude also!
The associate airline is also generally a smaller airline, and it is entered to SkyTeam from the sponsor. The sponsor pretty much is their representative to SkyTeam, and to the customer, it should really be transparent as Eddie mentions.
