I hope they have plans to interline with other carriers, because it will be a major turnoff to pax if they have to exit security, pick up their luggage, check in again, etc. I think that'd be the key factor that could help to make this a success.

Part of the reason is that airlines are absorbed by price matching each other and don't u...
