Publisher – Joanna has been working in publishing for more than a decade and is rapidly becoming a source of analysis of commercial aviation. It provides feedback to outlets such as the BBC, CNBC and others, and works closely with IATA, AviaDev and various airlines and suppliers to gain access to the insider trail in the global market. Choosing to take the airline for your location flight can make the difference between an almost seamless connection or a feeling of already seen, where you have to do the entire airport check-in process again. This means you have to land, go to the baggage locker, pick up your luggage, return to the departure lane, re-check your luggage and return for security. If your international flight departs from a major airport such as JFK, LAX or O`Hare, you must also take a train between the terminals and all your luggage (unless you cannot yet do so at O`Hare). Here at Simple Flying, we often write about new agreements between airlines. From code-sharing to joint ventures, to Interline agreements… There is a lot of cooperation between the institutions. But what exactly are Interline agreements, and how do they differ from other types of partnerships? DL may well believe that, given AA`s improved operational security, the financial impact of an IROP agreement with AA on DL is more favourable than it was two and a half years ago.
I can assure you that DL did not terminate the previous agreement because of pride, but because of harsh and cold numbers, and that they re-inserone it for the same reason. I love reading your blog and it is very often powered by good solid data. To say that a decision is or has been made by pride if there is no verifiable data (which none of us will see, btw) is quite the opposite. Anyway, I hope you will give them an idea of what some of the baggage fees are for international travel. The reintroduction of the Delta agreement adds another tool that helps us reintegrate customers affected by disruptions. However, we should continue to work to keep American customers on American. There is good news on this front. As the @xJonNYC still known, American and Delta will re-establish their Interline agreement from today, Wednesday, January 24, 2018.
