Air France and KLM have signed an agreement with the Greek regional airline Sky Express. Under the agreement, the three airlines will be able to strengthen their trade cooperation between Paris, Amsterdam and the Greek islands. Customers can now book an individual ticket for return flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle or Amsterdam-Schiphol to 24 Greek destinations operated by Sky Express on the suite of Athens, airfrance.com, KLM.com and Air France, KLM and Sky Express. Air France will terminate the passenger contract with the following 40 airlines from 01JAN08. The airlines concerned are: When separate tickets are issued in separate PNR tickets, the customer`s luggage is abandoned until the final destination of the American 001 ticket. The customer is responsible for the baggage fee on the second ticket when the baggage is re-checked by the oneworld airline. This may include exiting the secure area to claim the luggage and check it again. International flights may require customs clearance and re-examination of the other carrier to the final destination. Choosing to take the airline for your location flight can make the difference between an almost seamless connection or a feeling of already seen, where you have to do the entire airport check-in process again. This means you have to land, go to the baggage locker, pick up your luggage, return to the departure lane, re-check your luggage and return for security. If your international flight departs from a major airport such as JFK, LAX or O`Hare, you must also take a train between the terminals and all your luggage (unless you cannot yet do so at O`Hare). Sky Express offers a quality service with free access to business lounge facilities for all passengers departing from Athens, the “Sky Fast Lane” service for faster access to airport security checks, as well as free carry-on and checked baggage for all passengers travelling with Air France-KLM.
I expected to see something like a big “NOPE!”, but instead, there is no mention of the luggage hole.
