Codeshare Confusion Help Please

Wed Jan 11, 2006 6:50 pm

HI there we're flying BKK to KL with MAS and have been told flight MH9096 is a codeshare with thai!

Does this mean we check in with THAI or MAS?

Sorry to sound dumb!

Anyhelp much appreciated

No MH 9096, I think you meant MH 9069.
Yes it is operated bt a Thai 777. Check in should be with Thai. Noth the airliens have a very liberal codeshare arrangement on this route with 3 flights operated by TG and 2 with MH.


Cheers

Yes it is operated by a Thai 777. Check in should be with Thai. Both the airlines have a very liberal codeshare arrangement on this route with 3 daily flights operated by TG and 2 by MH.

Quoting Chrisjdurber (Reply 3):

So, ARE you already booked on that flight ?

Anyhow, when arriving at BKK´s Don Muang, to be absolutely sure just check the monitors for your check-in desk (or row) ...  Wink

You'd have to check in with Thai - it's being operated by their flight 419. If you call TG tell them you're booked on their flight 419 and they'll probably do it for you with a minimum of confusion  Wink

I just took a look and they filed that flight with the GDS as a 333.

In most cases, you have to check-in with the airline that is operating the flight.

cheers for the replys guys!

yep tickets in my grubby paws! (thought we were flying with MAS from BKK to KLIA as we are when we return but found the codeshare thing!), weve got 4 hours to kill when we arive from LHR anyway (god help us we're flying with EVA Elite class!) and figured business class onto KL albeit dated would be a giggle!!!!

Will give Thai a bell well they open tommorow here and have words!!!
