Anyone talking about codeshares as the solution needs to decide how much actual $ BA gets for the codeshare leg compared to what they get when they sell the ticket.
(Edited to pick big partner hubs which might have high value customers poachable without competing TOO directly with AA.)
What revenue would they capture that they wouldn’t capture with the myriad nonstops they already fly from ORD, ATL, IAH, and MIA to LHR? Or in the case of ORD and MIA that are already captured in the AA JV which is immunized and thus metal neutral?
