What the heck is a codeshare and how does an airline benefit from it?

What the heck is a codeshare and how does an airline benefit from it?

    I Have 1 dying question that needs to be answered.

    What the heck is a codeshare and how does an airline benefit from it?

    Why do they need codesharing if their part of an alliance already where you don’t need a codeshare to book that flight.

    And how do the codesharing airlines contribute to the airline operating the flight

    @ Peter — Codesharing is basically a way for multiple airlines to market and sell a flight. In some cases airlines that belong to the same alliance codeshare, while in other cases they don’t. They’re basically two different kinds of arrangements. A codesharing is generally a more “advanced” partnership than just belonging to an alliance, at least on a flight-by-flight basis.

    The codesharing airlines don’t “contribute” to the flight being operated, other than hopefully booking passengers on it. In exchange, they get some of the revenue for the people they booked.

    For earning EQP/EQM on AA, is there ever a time when I need to make sure the flight has an AA flight number and not just CX or QF, etc?

    Curt, for travel on oneworld partners you’ll earn EQMs/EQPs either way. It’s a different story on some other partners. For example, Etihad flights between the US and Abu Dhabi only earn miles if they’re booked as American codeshares.
