Northwest And Alaska Code Sharing

Thu Jul 28, 2005 5:00 am

When you go to nwa.com and look at their Timetable
It shows 22 flights between SEA and ANC all operated by Alaska Airlines, their code share partner. However, when you try to book a flight between SEA and ANC on nwa.com it tells you

Quote:
No Northwest Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, or codeshare partner flights were found between Seattle, WA (SEA) and Anchorage, AK (ANC) that matched your request.

So what's the point of listing them in the timetable if you cannot book them?

Is it a situation where you have to connect via SEA to ANC, and not just SEA to ANC is not offered.

Exactly. In the SEA-ANC market, the AS flights can only be sold as NW-designated codeshare flights if you originate at a different point on NW, using SEA as a connecting point.

AS/NW do have some markets where they do a "local market codeshare" where you don't have to be connecting to get it, but SEA-ANC isn't one of them.
