According to the article if IT and BA are granted permission to codeshare on IT's domestic services by the Indian Civil Avaiation Authority then it will will be the first such agreement between a Private Indian airline and a foreign airlines for Indian domestic routes.
If the codeshare agreement gets approval. Could Kingfisher be the next airline to join OW??.
If the agreement is granted then it will be just a matter of time before AF/KL/DL start codesharing with 9W and the *alliance airlines start codesharing with AI??

After travelling on IT, stepping into BA could be a bit of a shock (in Y at least). I don't know the figures, but there seems to be alot more legroom on IT's long haul fleet than BA, not to mention the differences in service.......If I booked IT, I wouldn't want to fly BA. That's why I'm not a fan of codeshares, but I do see the advantage of the extended route network etc etc.
However, anything that helps to secure the future of any airline is a good thing.
