No big deal - just an interline agreement. You can have interline with any airline/alliance - doesn't deserve a thread of its own. If it is codeshare or FFM agreements - its is certainly worth talking about. Anyhow, I am all for BT6 growth and love to see TATL service on their own metal some day.

It still is good for customers and I'm sure a ton will take advantage of it. Two airlines with two of the best coach products out there.

True. Heck, AS has more codeshare partners than that.

We just started adding partners within the last what, 4 years. Alright cape air has been with us for awhile but 14 now is a lot in that time frame. Singapore is a good pick up. I like it.

"No big deal - just an interline agreement."

Except when they did it with AA, everyone on here took that to mean a merge was imminent. So if that got its own thread (and it got many since then) I think we can discuss Singapore.

B6 has done a nice job with leveraging two hubs in JFK and BOS and teaming up with carriers seeking feed.

Big deal.

Each interline is small, but they do seem to be adding up in revenue...

Agreed. I'll be curious how fast B6 picks up the pace.

The difference is that AA and B6 also traded slots and focused their agreement on non-overlapping markets while otherwise still fighting for the same traffic - an issue that obviously is not in play here. They specifically used the term "commercial collaboration" for their relationship, which is far more than what we see here with SQ. That's the reason people analyzed it so deeply, not because it was a simple codeshare.

Don't get me wrong, it's still a nice addition for B6 and worth noting.

to be fair, some of the interlines at B6 seem to be more than just interlines. B6 actively markets those connections, moreso than is normal with an interline I think.

They already are, they fly to Mexico as well as some Caribbean/South American destinations.

Possibly. With their current fleet they could do something like JFK-SEA-ANC-ADK-NRT if they chose

Commercial collaboaration? I wonder what the extent of the collaboration will be. There isn't a lot of information there.

Well SQ is a big brand. Probably the 'Gucci' of the commercial airline industry if you will so this could just be for publicity's sake when they might just be codesharing on a very select few routes. But I'm not sure, it could really be a bigger collaboration than that

Their write up about SQ is sketchy compared to the comprehensive one they gave themselves lol.

So that means JFK T5 will handle SQ 's A380s instead of T4   This part seems a bit misleading.

I think they will stay at T4, maybe when B6 builds their international wing at JFK they might move in. Is it planned to accomodate the A380? What is the status of the T5i.... did not hear anything after they razed the old T6.

T5i will not acconmodate the A380. Its not gonna be a very large terminal. Its mainly gonna be just B6 flights but the gates will be able to take a widebody. It just wont be an A380. Demo. is still going on. I would say sometime in 2015 at best. If they get Turner construction again, maybe even sooner. They built T5 in record time and believe me, it shows. There are no drawings available to the public yet but I'm sure there out there. I'm going by a pretty good source to the above.
