B6 Signs Codeshare With EK, JL

Wed Apr 18, 2012 10:22 pm

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/jet...codeshare-with-emirates-2012-04-18

"NEW YORK and DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- JetBlue Airways JBLU -2.86% , New York's Hometown Airline(TM), and Emirates, the Dubai-based international carrier, today announced a codeshare agreement to connect the carriers' networks via New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport.

The two airlines have been interline partners since 2010, enabling customers to enjoy the convenience of a single combined ticket for Emirates and JetBlue-operated flights, plus other benefits including one-stop check-in and baggage transfer."

The article goes on to mention that connections will be available via JFK to:

Boston (BOS)
Burlington, Vermont (BTV)
Buffalo, New York (BUF)
Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT)
Chicago/O'Hare (ORD)
Fort Lauderdale, Florida (FLL)
Jacksonville, Florida (JAX)
Orlando, Florida (MCO)
Portland, Maine (PWM)
Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina (RDU)
Tampa, Florida (TPA)
Washington/Dulles (IAD)

Not to mention JL via JFK (16 destinations), LAX and BOS (13 destinations).

B6 currently has a code share program with AA, I believe, and also has plenty of INTERLINE (not code share) agreements with about a dozen international carriers out of JFK and BOS. Will those interline agreements soon become code share agreements?

This could bring significant revenue to B6, especially its JFK operations. It is so significant that I think B6 would be wise to add more medium and large city spokes that don't currently have plenty of international options (SAT, STL, MCI, MKE, DFW, MEM, CVG, CLE, IND). I know that B6 has trimmed JFK-Midwest flying (and JFK-domestic in general), but having significant code share agreements out of the nation's "premier" international gateway could be a great way to earn extra revenue. Just my $.02.

I'm pretty sure SA)">B6 does not have a code share agreement with SA)">AA, but they do have it with various other carriers such as LH, SA and EI. I find it interesting that SA)">B6 is striking all these code-share agreements with foreign carriers.

The interline goes through LAX, but the codeshare doesn't.

Not quite. It has an interline agreement and a program in which you can earn B6 miles on select AA int'l flights out of BOS or JFK (BOS-LHR being one), or earn AA miles on select B6 flights out of BOS or JFK (JFK-BTV being one).

Some might. Especially if B6 moves towards an alliance.

With the 787, BOS is suddenly a possibility for many carriers. B6 wants to focus on top business markets from BOS and BOS is a lot less congested than JFK. Plus you will soon be able to move from Terminal C to Terminal E without leaving security. I'd love to see some codesharing out of BOS as well.

BTW, B6's codeshares are all one-way. While B6 does put its code on 9K flights out of BOS, it does not put its code on anything LH, JL, EK, HA, or (if this is a code share) SA flies.

What was B6's last add at JFK? Their growth strategy at JFK seems to be nothing but codeshares and interlines.

Most airlines/airports hit that same point where either capacity or demand hit their peak at one point. I guess B6 has its eye on other places at this time in further enhancing its network.

Its not a bad idea to persue the codeshare/interline strategy to further boost its profitability across its network.

The codeshare with 9K is no more. It is now just an interline ticketing and baggage agreement. However, the agreement has been extended to 9K flights out of SJU as well as their RSW-EYW route.

I didn't realize that. That's too bad. I wonder what the status of their partnership is since they will now compete on SJU-STT, SJU-STX, and seasonally on BOS-ACK. Are they getting closer together, or further apart?

All these codeshare agreements are one way. Would it cost a lot for B6 to put its code on the other airline's flights (i.e. JFK-DXB)?

Its nice to see B6 codesharing/partnering with more OW airlines. Now we have AA, CX, LA, JL and soon to be TAM. I'm left wondering why its taking so long for BA, IB, AY, RJ, and AB to partner up.

They do not codeshare with AA or CX. Only LA and JL = 2 OW carriers.
They codeshare with LH and TAM = 2 *A carriers
I'm not sure B6 has any interest in joining an alliance. Personally I don't think that would be a smart move.

Notice I did say codeshare "slash" partner.

Well the B6 CEO has left the door open.

Terry Maxon at the Airline Biz blog reports that when "asked if today's deal could lead to JetBlue joining oneworld, [JetBlue CEO David Barger] said that 'our teams are real open to the path forward.'" American CEO Gerald Arpey said, "We'll see where things lead."

Will JetBlue Join an Airline Alliance?

Quoting airbazar (Reply 9):

Personally I don't think that would be a smart move.

Considering the presence of UACO in EWR, and DL in JFK, B6 isn't really needed in *A or ST. That leaves Oneworld. Joining an alliance won't prevent B6 from interlining with other airlines as it sees fit. I imagine that would be a condition for B6's membership.
