SKYTEAM seems to have benefited from the uproar caused by the UK OFT investigation into British Airways (above) with little coverage of its own legal problems. It is being investigated by the European Commission and has 12 weeks to respond. It is looking into collusion between member airlines on routes between the US and the European Union, but did not provide details. When Air France and KLM merged, the commission required the airlines to give up slots at their Paris and Amsterdam hubs in order to increase competition. "SkyTeam carriers will have the opportunity to demonstrate the economic benefits of the alliance and provide a preference on the best way to address the (antitrust) problems identified," the commission said in a statement.
