Re: WN and BA codeshare?

why is this a thread at all? BA are literally in a joint venture with AA and have a longstanding partnership with AS. WN would literally add nothing, and it’s not even possible in the first place.

Re: Hypothetical: DL and AA exchange JFK and LGA slots

AA/DL coexist fine at LGA. that's not going to change.
