code share tickets

United Airlines with their code-share partner Swiss may have come up with the best minimum connecting time, or rather, worst, I’ve seen — a 30-minute connection to an international flight, with two different carriers, in two different terminals, at JFK Airport.


Given space for a rebuttal on the same page with today’s USA Today editorial, When airlines share codes, truth-in-labeling suffers , president Roger Cohen of the Regional Airline Association (RAA) trots out the airlines’ usual “big lie” on code sharing, in unusually blatant form.


There is one simple thing passengers can do when traveling with a codeshare ticket that might mean the difference between a smooth trip and disaster — check which terminal your actual carrier uses.
