UA and QR recently ended their codeshare and frequent flyer agreements.
I just flew BOS
... the BOS
sectors were QR
I see, I must be one of the few lucky ones then.
How is this going to benefit UA
? Will QR
find other partners through interline? Or UA
knows that IAD
flights will have to depend on UA
to disburse the passengers to their origins/destinations?
were packed to the rims both ways even in this economy. Almost feels like a new carrier (EK or EY
) won't have any problem filling up. Definitely have more growth potential in the USA. Here are my hunches:
- after IAD
starts ... there are not many left other than the big three (ORD
). I say MIA
- I think ORD
is most likely with the UA
may be possible ONLY after the 787s are in.
- always thought they would be the one to start DFW
. but now EK
has taken that and also preempted their IAD
move. I am not sure if EY
is being guided by the right set of minds.
makes most sense. MIA
is rumored a lot, but I have my doubts (ATL
... maybe. This is a rather short flight for TK
(easily doable with the A330s) ... and the B6
feed is there.
