Why don't AI and UA codeshare with eachother on US-India flights?

Sun Aug 11, 2019 12:53 am

I just noticed that AI and UA don't codeshare on flights between DEL/BOM - ORD/EWR/SFO/IAD. Why is this the case when all of these are strong Star Alliance hubs and could offer seamless connections for passengers if there was a codeshare agreement?

United (and Air China) have been vocal opponents of Air India's entry in to Star Alliance apparently - there is a bit of a tiff in between them. Which is probably why UA codeshared with 9W when they were still flying and soon UK.

UA also do not codeshare with Singapore Airlines, Thai & Turkish, you'll notice.

Is it for the same reason that they don't codeshare with AI? (Opposition against SQ, TK, and Thai being in *A)
