  1. General question: Do other major companies have simmilar codeshares with low cost carriers? I just can't imagine eg. Etihad codesharing with Pegasus :D

    1. It's probably because both Qatar and Vueling are part of oneworld. BA also codeshares with Vuealing on some routes, though I am not sure their customers are very pleased to fly on Vueling planes having paid the BA fare.

    2. Note that QR now owns 20% of IAG, which is Vuelings parent company (also of BA and IB).
