The Air France-KLM merger has significant implications for African carriers.
The nascent Wings alliance is falling away, and being folded into Skyteam — so that Air France and KLM will be teamed up with Delta, Continental, Northwest, Aeromexico, Alitalia, Korean, and Czech.
KLM controls Kenya Airways and Delta partners with South African. Both could potentially join Skyteam.
In the meantime, the rest of Africa’s airlines are a mess on their own.
