However, KE, another Skyteam member, still operates more cargo flights to BRU then to CDG or AMS.

Hmmm... Saudi-Arabian Airlines joining SkyTeam... they'll have to upgrade their ancient systems at Jeddah and Riyadh Airports... SAA lounges... what a joke.
The lounge services at Riyad's King Khalid International Airport is very limited.
Service onboard the SAA flights are appalling... a major overhaul is needed. The blue seats on their 747 jumbo's are often worn off and even dirty on their domestic routes (Jeddah - Riyadh).
The inflight service is sometimes hilarious... movies that contains censored images hahaha!
Wondering how Skyteam passengers will react...

I have flown with SV on routes they wouldnt really care about maintaining standards on, but surprisingly inflight service, IFE and aircraft were all great.
