Continental could become part of a three-way Atlantic venture with partner Northwest Airlines.
That would be great IMO.

I've often wondered why NW/KL haven't tried to expand more aggressively their partnership with CO. If you look at their strengths and weaknesses in terms of routes, they seem to compliment each other well. NW & CO have said off and on that they would like to form a fourth major N. American route system, but have stopped short of truly providing that ability, I think, by not enhancing their partnership further.

I think building this partnership would be great for all involved. I don't know whats holding them back.

BTW: I wouldn't say CO's inflight service is particularly great, not any better than KL for instance. Their biggest strength is their Bethune lead management team that took them from 'worst to first'.

kind regards,
