Air Tahiti Nui to Join Skyteam?

Three and a half years ago I thought that Air Tahiti Nui and Delta were working on a partnership. To date, it hasn’t materialized.

Already they partner with Skyteam member Northwest (use Worldperks miles to redeem on Air Tahiti Nnui) and American (both earn and burn).

The latest rumor, though, has Air Tahiti Nui joining Skyteam as well as exiting the Osaka market and turning New York-JFK into seasonal service.

I’m just hoping that if they join Skyteam it doesn’t cause them to sever ties with American, that partnership is a good one. And I’m hoping they don’t learn from Skyteam members about how to limit even further the availability of premium class award seats.
