Mas777- I agree with you. MAS will probably not join Skyteam anytime soon. MAS have multiple agreements and cooperations in place for possible future membership with Skyteam. At the moment a very cautious MAS is merely stirring the water just to see what churns out. _________________________________...

I would suggest that you check your facts clearly before making any form of allegation.
