this is very interesting!
I don't know if you or somebody else had the opportunity to read throug slide 14 but there it states very very clearly:
* Pilot-talks : until week 47
* Partner selection : until week 48
* PARTNER DECISION!
* 1 jan and beyond : Implemention new alliance! New Code-shares/FFP/Lounge aggreements
I gues that the qualiflyer FFP can exist even when they are part of another alliance.
