I don't think that the Qualiflyer will stay alive. I think they are too small to be a good alliance.
In a couple of years, Sabena and Swissair wanna join another alliance. They don't have the possibility to have an American airline in their alliance. All the American airliners are choosing for the bigger alliances with more fame.
So I don't think that Qualiflyer has a chance to survive.
What is your opinion?
