I am aware of the advantages that codesharing has on airlines such as - allowing airline to expand operations without physically flying to that destination
creating perception of large flight network
reduced operation costs from seat transfers e.g KLM & Kenya Airways on the NBO-AMS route
However my concern is ;
are there any other further benefits ?
do codeshares reduce competition?
can codesharing airlines compete ? (e.g Star Alliance members, Lufthansa & Thai Airways)
do alliances reduce competition ?
can airlines of the same alliance compete ? (e.g Oneworld members, British Airways & American Airlines)
