Why Can 4U Tickets Be Booked With X3?

Thu May 06, 2010 8:28 am

Hi guys, I've just noticed that (as it seems to me) all 4U flights can be booked on the X3 website. What is the sense behind this? I fully understand that X3 sells tickets for AB or ST flights, because of the mutual share-holding, and the fact that all B737-700's of X3 are now operating for AB. But why offer 4U flights, as 4U is affiliated with LH? On the contrary, X3 flights cannot be booked using 4U's website, only those operated by DE.

I appreciate your thoughts and comments

It's very easy to explain...

The web-page is no longer the web-page of TUIfly airlines- AFAIK it changed in March 2010.

The new domain is the new portal of TUI flights-only travel agency. Like expedia or opodo. But especially designed to sell off seats on TUI plc. full chartered aircrafts- thats why you can book non-IATA/GDS system airlines like TURKUAZ AIRLINES, AIR VIA etc.!
