Just wondering, when Continental and South African left Sky Team why. Is this based on route structure, loads, or just arrogant egos?

South African was never in SkyTeam. They just had a codeshare agreement with Delta. Continental left SkyTeam because of the DL/NW merger and NW selling their "golden share" in CO back to CO, which allowed them to chart their own course. CO's entry into SkyTeam was in some respects a shotgun wedding, as the alliance between them, NW and KLM (Wings Alliance) joined SkyTeam (Former Wings member Alitalia had previously joined SkyTeam a few years earlier.) and part of this was due to KLM being bought out by Air France.
