I don't see the issues with needing to foot drag on putting up an earning chart. At least now one could book the AF-coded, SV-operated flights and earn SkyMiles, since SV is a ST carrier and the rules would follow DL's chart for AF-coded flights as long as the operating carrier is in ST. It's going to be interesting to see what happens later this month when ME joins. Anybody want to bet that they get a press release welcoming them to ST and a speedy appearance on the earning chart?
Every airline of an alliance does not file fares to every city served by an alliance member.
I was able to pull up AF coded itinerary operated by AF, DL and SV on ITA.
