Do airlines that codeshare on another airline's flight have to pay a section of the costs in return for the revenue generated by selling the seats on that flight? Or does all the money just go to the airline flying the flight?

I would imagine it depends on the type of codesharing arrangmement, but the marketing carrier will certainly get some of the money. If it is a Block Space agreement, the marketing carrier will buy a block of seats from the operating carrier at a fix price, and sell them for whatever money they can get. If it is a freeflow agreement, where the marketing carrier continues selling space on the operators flight until the operator closes the flight for sale, then I would imagine some kind of revenue sharing is in place, either or a per seat sold basis or for the whole flight.
