Colgan Codeshare Shopping?

Tue Jan 23, 2007 3:19 pm

In the EAS case for Altoona, Colgan, while proposing service to PIT, has requested authority to serve either CVG, CLE, PHL, PIT, or IAD hubs - their choice - at the same subsidy rate. Presumably this could involve shifting their codeshare among Delta, Continental. US Airways, and United.

It sounds as if their plan is to offer the AOO feed to the highest bidder - that is, whatever airline would charge them the least for reservations, ground handling, etc. Anybody agree with my conclusion?

It's not a bad plan. The new owners will probably want them to include DTW and NW as other alternates.
