Codesharing is pure marketing. It gives many of the same beneifits of a merger (access to consumer bases, networks, etc.) without the costs / loss of identity / etc.

There's different types of codesharing...

- e.g. NW/CO - the carrier that operates the flight gets the revenue from the coupon (from whatever formula they use)

- e.g. NW/KL - NW/KL split all transatlantic revenues

- e.g. AA/MU - AA purchases a block of seats on MU's LAX-PEK flights

You might want to check out this posting http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1346198/. Couple ideas out there already describing some pros and cons of different areas of codesharing (regional, national, international). Hope it helps
