I have to agree with AF-A319. TAM with it's great in-flight service and it's great reputation would fit in nicely in Skyteam's alliance. I hope that Air France and Delta realize the potential there and offer TAM to join in.
I really don't know about LAPA being able to substain the Atlanta-Buenos Aires market when Delta joins in. I really don't even now how they manage to fly that route since LAPA and and Delta do not codeshare on that route. Or do they? Atlanta-Buenos Aires mostly relies on feeders from other cities.
