Airlines Code-sharing On One Route

Thu Nov 04, 2004 4:46 am

Today I friend of mine travelled from LHR to GLA with BD and I noticed that 6 other airlines c/s on this particular flight:


Flight which is actually operated by BD:

22.55 BD014 HEATHROW-GLASGOW

The 6 other airlines that c/s on the flight

22.55 GF5214 HEATHROW-GLASGOW
22.55 LH6538 HEATHROW-GLASGOW
22.55 TG7020 HEATHROW-GLASGOW
22.55 TP8929 HEATHROW-GLASGOW
22.55 OS8971 HEATHROW-GLASGOW
22.55 SK9731 HEATHROW-GLASGOW


Now that seems like a hell of a lot of airlines placing their codes on a single A320 flight.

Are they're any restrictions on the number of c/s on a single flight? Anyone know of any other flight with more than 7 airlines placing their codes on a single flight.

I guess you will find these more often on flights operated by members of bigger alliances. One flight than I'm personally familiar with is:
UA 1509 TPA-ORD departing at 17:00
aka:
US 6495
LO 4564
LH 9391
SK 8832
Only five (at least these are all I know about), still quite impressive.

Horus - while there are all those marketing codeshare flights on the single operating segment, it is somewhat deceptive. All of those marketing codeshare segments (with the exception of the LH one) are traffic-restricted to online connecting traffic only. This means that for instance the TG marketing codeshare flight can only be sold as part of a connection with another TG flight. I don't know why this needs to be the case for the OS, SK and TP marketing codeshare flights, since these carriers are all EU and can therefore in theory sell their flights between any two points in the EU. It might be Star Alliance policy, who knows.

NZ flights from AKL-LAX code shar with UA. And Some QF flights ro AKL code share with AA and BA.
Also SQ flights to certain cities in Europe such as ZRH and NZ code shar with NZ

Cragley, it's not just to LBA but also BD flights out of LHR to GLA, EDI, MAN, DUB, MME, NCL & BFS.

According to another thread
(http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1775040),
flight BD 9 has 10 codeshare partners on the same aircraft. If the seats are divided equally between them, each airline only gets 15 seats each.

15.10 BD0009 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 MH9637 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 SK9774 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 UA4819 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 GF5209 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 AC6628 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 LH6685 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 NH6856 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 SA7613 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515
15.10 OS8976 HEATHROW AIRBORNE 1515

Hey Keno

Look at the aircraft used on the route and the amount of codeshre partners.
its a lot less than 15 seats per airline. As you know the capacity would not be spread out, but allocated to each airline on each codeshre flight

Look at BD412 for an idea.

Re: As you know the capacity would not be spread out, but allocated to each airline on each codeshre flight

BD's codesharing certainly with most of the Star carriers is on a freeflow basis - there is no allocation of unique space to each individual carrier on the flight, each carrier has effectively the whole flight to sell if they want, each sell is reported to the operating carrier at the time the sell is made (or when the booking is committed) and the operating carrier notifies each codeshare partner when a given selling class closes out, so that the sale of that selling class is closed out for all the marketing carriers as well. There may be some differential allocation of particular selling classes between the marketing carriers for specific fares and for FQTV redemption, but it is not block-space codeshare.
