AS-AM Codeshare Is Now Official

AM is code-sharing on all AS flights to/from Mexico...even competing routes...and great benefits for members of both mileage programs. Looks like total reciprocity...big win for everyone from what I can tell.

I think AM should consider reinstating 73G or 73H service to MEX from SEA. The flight should be a redeye to MEX and a morning flight to SEA.

Would love to see n/s service SEA-MEX....with AS feed I think it would do much better than AM's last attempt. Have to wonder about yields though...would people pay a premium over current 1-stop service?

Quoting HiFlyerAS (Reply 2):

We might see AM or AS take another crack at it, but the route has historically been pretty hit or miss depending on the season. It'd be nice to see AM back at SEA and I think the chances are better with this news, but I'm not counting on it.

I would think this route would do better on AS metal. How about an AS 73G SEA-MEX (and SJC-MEX while they are at it) with AM code-sharing. AS has much better recognition in the Northwest.
