Update the AirFrance and KLM sub-forum names

Should the AF and KL sub-forums be renamed to remove the affiliation with the discontinued programs names?

FrequencePlus and FlyingDutchman are no longer in use by AF-KL, and both airlines market their joint program as being the FlyingBlue program.

I failed to circle back and respond to your suggestion. I reached out to the mods for the forum. Here is one response that I got:

From a practical standpoint, removing the old program names would be harmonized with the practices of other fora. Yet, it could lessen the feeling of shared community the posters from the two fora, Air France and KLM feel. Given that the number of regular contributors is not increasing by a significant number, I believe it would not be helpful, especially for the KLM forum where the sense of identity is quite strong

It was certainly a solid suggestion. But based on this input, I am not moving ahead.

Thank you.
