Skyteam

Wed Oct 17, 2001 5:06 pm

It appears as though the Skyteam airlines are doing quite well in relation to some other airlines. I think that Air France, Korean Air and Delta Air Lines are well positioned to STAY ALIVE.

Comments?

Yes they seem really alive, but also LH and BA here in Europe are well positioned to stay alive and maybe become bigger than today.

Don´t forget Aeromexico, they still alive.. they only reduce 3 flights, and that was it... no cut in jobs as what happened to Mexicana. And some other Mexican Carriers.

How are CSA and Alitalia doing? I haven't heard a lot about them.
Skyteam only has 6 airlines,(DL, Air France, Aeromexico, Korean Air, Alitalia, CSA Czech.) while oneworld and Star Alliance have 15 or 20. Could that be an advantage for Skyteam?

As you can see with only 6 Airlines they can cover all the globe... America, Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia.

I think that the number of alliances will eventually be limited to three. Wings doesn't seem to have much future since KLM has decided it must pair up with Air France or British Airways to ensure its long-term future.(See previous threads on the topic.) You can be sure that Skyteam will attract more members--the only question is whether they'll get the best of the rest. Failures of airlines in rival alliances may also resound to Skyteam's benefit in the future. Wait and see....

Skyteam has stolen 3 codeshare partners from CO. First, Air France. AF and CO have had a codeshare agreement going for a long time. Now, they join Skyteam with DL. Next, AZ, who has been codesharing with CO as long as I can rember does the same. Next, CSA Czech, which has been a CO codeshare partner. What's next?

Cba, by using the word "stolen" you infer that Air France, Alitalia, and CSA had no choice in the matter of alliance swapping. Those airlines are have clearly made business decisions which support their own interests. Obviously, Delta and "SKYTEAM" have more to offer than Continental and their practically non-existent and disfunctional "WINGS" alliance. Your question should therefore be why have these airlines CHOSEN to abandon Continental and who's next to bail out of wings?
