    By all accounts, Air France did not want them in SkyTeam. Is it really losing anything if you don't want it in the first place?

    Honestly, I sort of see SkyTeam's point. MH has had a lot of problems, and I'm not sure they are terribly well-positioned to see growth or to drive traffic or efficiency gains for the alliance. Aside from shuttling people to and from Oz, what does MH bring that can't be delivered by the existing or announced carriers? SkyTeam is betting on the growth potential of GA and VN, as well as dominating China, which is the real prize in East Asia.
