SKYTEAM ALLIANCE has signed an agreement with China Southern Airlines, which will allow it to become a full member during 2007. The airline is now committed to meet the stringent set of standards required of SkyTeam and implement bilateral code sharing, frequent flyer and lounge agreements with each of the member carriers. China Southern Airlines provides the most extensive airline route network in China – operating more than 600 routes with a fleet of 259 aircraft – and serves a range of international cities that are complementary to SkyTeam’s current destination network, including Dalian and Changsha (China) and Melbourne (Australia).

It doesn't some like to much sense to have an airline based in Belgrade, Serbia & Montenegro. I think that Virgin Atlantic or Alaska would be good.
