KL-MP Take Over: Curacao Consequences?

With the rumors of KL taking over MP 100 percent there has been some media attention in the local newspapers here in Curacao about the number of frequencies these two airlines will be allowed to have to Curacao. If KL gets the approval to have full control of MP it means KL will have 14 weekly flights to Curacao compared to 7 weekly flights operated by the competition (Arkefly). According to the newspapers this would give the competition a disadvantage over KL/MP. This on its turn might result in KL/MP being forced to change their plans regarding Curacao and force them to reduce the number of (planned) flights to Curacao.

My questions are: To what extend is this true, what can KL/MP do against this, how will KL/MP change their plans to Curacao if needed and what potential is there from other European airlines to tap in this attractive market?

TP used to fly to Curacao to take a (small) piece of the AMS-CUR pie. DE also used to fly to Curacao from Cologne to steal away some passengers to Curacao.
