I think SAA is in high demand for any alliance due to its strategic location, therefore, it may have the ability to choose which airline grouping better suits its needs.
SAA will probably conclude that Star Alliance or OneWorld will bring it more benefits in terms of world coverage and partners´strenght. I say that Star is a good bet!
Does it still flying to Atlanta in that code-sharing agreement with Delta? Particularly, that seems to me a pretty odd route even though it serves the busiest airport in the World. It was nice seeing SAA flying to MIA. Was it cancelled?
Regarding RAM, would it be a priority for Skyteam right at this moment? Wouldn´t that be other carriers to develop closer relationships first, like El Al or Southern China?
