To do that, "we need foreign currency, foreign language, then there are other technologies that will likely need to support connecting with other airlines," Kelly said, "but that is also something I hope to undertake within the next five years."
Wasn't one of the stumbling blocks to past WN code-shares (FL merger notwithstanding) opposition by WN's pilot union to any code share scheme? Or was I misremembering that?
The FL purchase never involved any type of codeshare, so that was never an issue. The contract signed in 2016 allows for certain types of codeshare as well as interlines agreements - both with strict limitations and conditions.
