According to Dow Jones the codeshare deal between KL and CO will be extended in its current form. Moreover they reported on Friday that both airlines would issue a more detailed statement yesterday. However, I haven't seen any. Does anyone know more details?

CO+KL makes sense.
LH+UA, AA+BA (more or less), AF+DL
If KLM will stand this pressure they need a big partner. Better connections and more connection flights. Affects on SNBA?
I would say yes, more flights from AMS, a closer codeshare with KL is not the best for SNBA! Their markets are very close.
CO is on the safer side to tighten the relation with KL because they are a lot stronger than SNBA whose success as a intercontinental Airlines I hardly doubt.
