Very interesting reading -- THANKS!!

Particularly interesting to me is the joint venture with DL, the details of which are starting to trickle out in terms of routings, and the 4-way joint venture planned for 2010.

Yes, it so appears that LHR-SEA is a route being considered by the AF/KL/DL/NW quadumvirate.

Hi,

Great read. One of the other thing I noticed is now they are at least looking at giving passengers option when purchasing the different fares within a certain class. This would make booking on their website much easier since AF still has the no exempt policy on these cases even if you call the Internet Helpdesk to book specific classes.
