    1. Why do you think these figures should be revealed to you?

    2. Please do not reveal numbers. Large number of Serbian citizens owns luxury real estate in Naples FL and 2h drive from existing Air Serbia codeshare destination MIA is much worse than 45 min drive from Ft Myers.

      Seriously I don't understand who are Air Berlin customers to that destination. Air Serbia customers must be real rarity in that area.

    3. Would it matter even if it was 0?
      More acknowledgment through more destinations is better.
      Is there a cost to codeshare? Significant, if there is one?

  4. Codeshares with some other airline to Toronto, Washington, Vancouver and Montreal would bring more passengers and money.
