According to reports from India BA and IT are in advance talks re codesharing in India.

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...g-in-India/articleshow/5601251.cms

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??

Wouldnt surprise me if that happened eventually , they have been on the Global Explorer fare since June last year - often , but not always , a precursor to OW membership .

The catalyst for IT or 9W to get serious about joining an alliance will be when AI formally gets into *A. Till then, the lads in India will hold their cards and see what happens.

9W has code shares with AA already and if IT teams with BA, they might both be looking to OW, Would be a good time for STeam to start the courting dance more seriously as well.

If the codeshare goes ahead it will be interesting to see if BA cut back on there flights to India or maybe they could start codesharing on one anothers services.

By entering a codeshare agreement IT and it's pax could get access to BA's extensive route network to North America and BA will be able to offer onward flights to their customers in India.

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.
