Code Shares & Allinces

Sun Dec 19, 1999 7:15 am

OK its kiddy hour now because I have a kiddy question!

~~~~~ Let us take Twa and DL
Lets say these two where to have a code share! Now how would this code share help both carriers?
Also what is the difference between a code share and an alliance?

I apologize for the kiddiness of my question!

You can just have a code-share agreement on one or few routes, without cooperating a lot with another airline (= alliance).

If DL et TWA would code-share that would give them a better commercial offer through more frequencies on more destination, a greater FF program and acces to lounge of both airlines for business travelers.

codeshare is where an airline gives another airline permission to seel seats on there flights.
Due to that, they give them there own flight number!
