Pax Interline Agreements Between LCCs?

I'm just throwing this question out to the aviation community. Is is feasible to have an interline agreement between all the true LCCs in the U.S.? Furthermore would it be beneficial to these carriers when competing against Legacies?

Personally, I think that when things go wrong at the LCCs the most they can do is give you a voucher and wish you good luck on Greyhound. It would be nice as a LCC passenger that I may have the opportunity to fly Southwest, Airtran, Frontier, Spirit, Midwest, Jetblue, or Virgina America if my LCC carrier cannot accommodate me on a particular flight.

While WN doesn't have interline per say if needed we will put you on another airline and pay for it.

It happened to me a lot in STL I would get customers from US, NW and AA with checks to purchase tickets on our flights.

I know we have done it to US Airways in PHX and LAS.

However most of the LCC have an interline/code share agreement with other LCC, WN/ATA, F9/FL have a marketing agreement.

Feasible perhaps, but costly it just might be. I don't have the financial paperwork in my hands to see so I don't know how much it'd cost if any to have interline agreement with the LCC.

Interestingly enough, WN does participate in the clearinghouse already with the ATA for MX Expenses and so on, I wonder how much extra it would cost to add the ticketing agreements...



Why do I fly???

Frontier can rule tickets over to most carriers (WN and B6 among the exceptions). In fact F9 has interline e-ticketing agreements with Hahn Air, Korean, US Air, Delta, United, Continental, Northwest, Midwest, ATA, and Hawaiian. I'd say that's some pretty good choices should you need to be rerouted.

I think the real standalone carriers in the US are Southwest, Spirit, JetBlue, Virgin America, Skybus. Midwest, Frontier, and AirTran do play with the legacy group. Who did I miss?

Frontier has interline agreements with every US airline except WN, B6, XE, which do not interline. So, if your F9 flight is cancelled or delayed (which is very uncommon with them) they can reroute you on almost any other airline.

Ha! I think it's the other way around 90% of the time. Check your DOT stats. Almost always the #1 major carrier in fewest cancellations and almost always in the top 5 among the majors in OTP. F9 is always happy to bail out the legacies when their aging fleets take a crap on them. Gives people a chance to try a quality coach class domestic airline, and they do come back for more.
