I'm booking SDF-DCA-BOS on 10/22 then with United as a codeshare with USAirways BOS-DCA-SDF on 10/24 also with a United codeshare with USAirways. All legs will be operated by USAirways, so will I be checking in at the United desks or the USAirways desks? I don't think I've ever booked a codeshare flight before. For some reason this option is quite a bit more expensive if you book through the US site.

Flt. numbers are United 3862 and United 2704 then United 2831 and 3627.

With US/UA codeshares, you'll always check-in with the airline that operates the flight. In your case, this is US Airways, so go to their counter when you arrive at the airport.

Thanks for the help. Any insight as to why this flight costs $420 when booking with US and $230 when booking UA?

UA assigns its seat allocation on these flights into its own fare classes, just like it would on its own. I'd imagine that what's happened in this case is that all of the US cheap fares have been sold out, but not as many have been sold out under the UA flight number... they effectively work as two separate flights from a ticketing perspective, so there could be almost nothing left under US but still plenty left under the UA code...

Star_world is right re fares. VS and CO (used to) do exactly the same.

Remember that some airports won't have both check-in desks, so you'd have to use the operator's one anyway. The TV screens should show which desk to check-in under, for both flights.

Yeah, in LHR if you are flying CO on a Vigin codeshare you have to check in on the Virgin desk.

I remember one time, I flew RDU-IAD-PHL on United Express (RDU-IAD on AWAC, IAD-PHL on ACA) and then PHL-ISP on US Airways Express (Piedmont)...I was told to check in with BOTH airlines, although I was told I could check in with US Airways either at RDU or upline at PHL...is this normal, or somewhat weird...BTW, it was on a United ticket...

I have flown a Swiss flight operated by Tunisair from GVA to TUN and I checked at the LX desk.
