Why I believe World of Hyatt could be the new FFP of an airline or two

I think it's good for airlines, as it could allow for those who add their World of Hyatt membership number to their bookings to automatically get a Hyatt property at their destinations. Anyway, here are the airlines that could share a membership program (loyalty program in terms of hotels, and FFP in terms of airlines):
  1. Delta Air Lines (could replace the aging SkyMiles FFP)
  2. Air France (could be its secondary FFP alongside Flying Blue)
  3. Korean Air (could replace Skypass as its FFP)
  4. Vietnam Airlines (could be its secondary FFP alongside LotusMiles)
  5. Garuda Indonesia (could be its secondary FFP alongside Garuda Miles)
  6. Virgin Atlantic (could replace Flying Club as its FFP)
  7. China Southern (could be its secondary FFP alongside Sky Pearl Club)
  8. Air Transat (could be its new FFP)
  9. Aer Lingus (could replace AerClub as its FFP)
  10. Loganair (could be its secondary FFP alongside Clan Loganair)
  11. Etihad Airways (could replace Etihad Guest as its FFP - and who knows? It may be profitable again just by switching to World of Hyatt!)
In addition, there could be some benefits for World of Hyatt members who fly with the above airlines:
  1. Exclusive business class lounge access for members at its possible SkyTeam Elite tier, Discoverist
  2. Exclusive business and first class lounge access for members at its possible SkyTeam Elite Plus tiers, Explorist and Globalist
  3. Seat upgrades up to the highest class possible for members at its possible second SkyTeam Elite Plus tier, Globalist (if available)
  4. Free extra-miles award for all World of Hyatt members if they have flown 5 of the 11 airlines that could participate in this program
