I usually don't like to talk hypotheticals, but the two airlines being targeted in these latest bid frenzies are NW
, both members of Sky Team. Do you think SkyTeam's position is being weakened and other alliances such as the Star Alliance being strengthened (esp. when US/UAL are both part of the Star Alliance)? I admit, KLM and AF
are still very strong members of SkyTeam, but without Delta and NW
? What do you think?
