The only reasons to cancel are: 1. The code share is not revenue positive for one or both carriers. 2. US or Israeli regulators require it (in this instance). Neither sem likely.

Remember that there is no requirement that a codeshare, JV or other partner be in the same alliance.

Cancelling codeshares is not what we should be afraid of. Cancelling reciprocal FF benefits is what we should be concerned of. LY has many codeshares without any FF benefits (e.g. AA, IB, etc.)
