This is not a debate question!! But I do think that a lot of people share the impression with me that QF
/CX seems to be one of the WEAKEST links within the one
world alliance!! Apart from the FCO
codeshare, and the very restricted reciprocal FFP regime, cooperation between the two airlines is almost non-existent, in my fair opinion.
Why is such happening? Given the relative proximity of the two airline's respective hubs (SYD
), and the masive volume of traffic, both business and leisure, flying in-between, I would imagine there are heaps of codeshare/joint marketing or other cooperation opportunities between the two (such as CX
codesharing on QF
codesharing on CX
etc). Yes, I am aware that QF
are fierce competitors on the HKG
-AUSTRALIA runs, but then isn't it the same situation that BA
face on HKG
as well? At least relationship between BA
appear to be much more rosier to me with the great number of codeshare agreements in place between the two.
So why isn't this happening with QF
? I reckon their common foes are something like Singapore, Thai and no doubt Emirates, but not really each other....
