UA/US Code Share Cities, Smaller Markets.

Thu May 22, 2003 4:54 am

For example, US is the dominant carrier at PBI, with UA only operating one flight a day to ORD in the summer, and 2 or 3 max during peak season. It seems to me that this is pretty expensive to keep a station staffed for so few flights. Wouldn't it be much more cost efficient to contract out the UA flights to code share partner US? (makes sense.) Or vice versa in smaller US cities. I happen to know this is being considered for West Palm. Anyone here have any further input on the subject? Just curious.

We'll likely see this develop more and more over time. Both airlines will keep service in cities since they only get paid for the pax they transport - not just the ones who fly on their code (if operated by the other).
