Starting on September 2, 2006, Air France customers will benefit from 13 weekly flights instead of the former 6 between Paris and Detroit.
Air France passengers will now be able to travel between Paris and Detroit on flights operated by Northwest and sold under the "AF" code. In return, Northwest passengers will be able to fly on Air France-operated flights between Paris and Detroit.
At first sight, a very logical move. However, what I wonder: how did they get governmental approval for this? Weren't there anti-trust issues that AF could not codeshare with NW and KL not with DL? How did they work around this? Does it imply that in the near future, KLM can also codeshare with DL next to NW? Anybody who has more information on this?
