Interesting tidbit from Reuters.
KQ's 2nd largest shareholder [& technical partner] is Air France-KLM therefore the recent agreement between AF-KLM "Air France-KLM, Etihad, Air Berlin plan partnership" probably means KQ may reduce flights to Dubai in favor of Abu Dhabi to take [code-share] advantage of Etihad's worldwide connections to Australia, China, North America & the Far East.
Etihad flies to Nairobi & a code-share for ET passengers to (Southern, Eastern, Central, Western) Africa may make sense for both parties. I expect Etihad will not give up major destinations like Jo'burg & Lagos but let KQ handle smaller destinations like Entebbe, Kigali, Kinshasa, Luanda, etc
