Re: RUMOUR: B6/PF Interlining Agreement

Interlining is tough to get excited about, but B6 sure loves to hype it. Why? It sure beats having to self-connect. Also it could be possible if there's an issue with TXL-BOS, they may reroute you via TXL-NYC-BOS. Agree with other posters that B6 shouldn't sell these connections on their site and b...
