Inability To Book An AC + US Codeshare Flight?

Hi Folks -

I was just in Key West, FL, and when I got home, experimented with booking YYZ-EYW on AC's website. Now, I know they don't fly there at all, never mind directly - but US does YYZ-CLT-EYW. I just find it strange that AC doesn't even recognize that the itinerary is possible with a connection to one of its *A partners, and doesn't make it bookable (?) AC's site doesn't even recognize EYW as a destination.

I've previously booked all kinds of *A itineraries with mutliple carriers... i.e. AC will seamlessly connect you to UA at DEN, etc. - I'm just wondering if AC & US have limited codeshare-ability, or whether US has some kind of 'poor cousin' status within *A?

Any input greatly appreciated ~

I think there is a problem with AC's booking engine. It seems to get confused by "complicted" bookings.

I flew SZG-VIE-YYZ-ORD-OKC last year but couldn't easily book that online through AC. I had to call OS.

AC and US do not codeshare at all.

Strangely, the easiest way to mix the two carriers is to book through UA, because they codehare with both carriers.

Slightly off-topic, but SA and US does not codeshare as well.


Take care,

Who does US codeshare with?

Apparently.

Ironically, SQ codeshares with US but not with UA.

Actually codesharing doesn't mean that the price makes sense. Take VS, they used to have a CO code. However there was no way to get i.e. a FRA-MAN-MCO flight decently priced. If I would have taken FRA-LH-MAN-UA-EWR-UA-MCO then it would be fine.

There is this thing called "Atlantic joint venture", which is LH/UA/BD/AC/CO/LX/SN. All these airlines have basically the same base fare (taxes differ of course) as long as you get the same booking class. And you can mix them how you wish. See? US is not part of this, you will never get a decent price if you try to connect US with one of these...
