Virgin Atlantic Adds Codeshare W/ Midwest Express

Mon Aug 06, 2001 7:30 pm

Title speaks for itself. Codeshare to KANSAS CITY AND MILWAUKEE which will enable Virgin Atlantic passengers to fly to Milwaukee and Kansas City from London Gatwick via Virgin’s connecting service through Boston.

Expected to come into effect by end of 2001.
Work Hard. Fly Right. Continental Airlines

In a way, another airline getting into the crowded BOS-London route, with BA (3 747/777 LHR) AA (2 A300 LHR), UA (1 763 LHR), DL (1 763 LGW), VS (1 747 LGW), CO (c/s w/ VS) and now MX. 7 carriers is a lot for the route, but I'll take it.

This code share existed a while ago, at the MKE end of it, but was discontinued for some reason. Good to see it back!

a SLOT issue caused the termination of the original code-share.. Virgin had to make a drastic change in their BOS-LGW sked, causing the connections to YX to be 4 or 5 hours long, so they opted not to sell it anymore, but they are ready to try again..It will be great for KC, to be on Virgin's route map,,we will be up there with Delhi and Shanghai, etc.

I hope Branson comes to KC in person to do one of his promotional stunts..hope against hope
