Well said Triple Seven and Aviasian - can't agree with you guys more!
And to illustrate Aviasian's 3rd paragraph that you could still code-share with an airlines from outside of the alliance or from a rival alliance, one example if Air NZ
's domestic feed in Australia. This may not be as "concrete", given NZ
is seeking to join forces with QF
, but NZ
's domectic feed in Australia is performed by QF
at the moment - and we'', at the moment, they ARE from rival alliances!
