WNBC CH. 36 is reporting that Charlotte Chamber of Commerce officials are going to meet with Lufthansa officials in the coming month to discuss Lufthansa starting service to the Queen City. From my numerous posts in this forum, I'm all for seeing Lufthansa here in Charlotte. My question is this....
Will the US & LH agreement be similar to the UA agreement where US makes no money if their passenger flies on a codeshare flight? If this is the case, US wouldn't want to compete on the CLT - FRA route with LH would they? I was thinking that LH could start a CLT - MUC route and they could push for all of BMW's business.
Also, I don't know what loads are like out of ATL, but would it be possible that LH would discontinue ATL service and route passengers thru CLT? Only problem is US Airways needs to find a spare 330 to fly the CLT - FRA route if the above scenerio would happen.
I welcome your thoughts
