jetBlue expands Air Serbia codeshare


jetBlue has expanded its codeshare agreement with Air Serbia to include a number of routes, complementing its existing codeshare from New York and Chicago to Belgrade. As of this month, jetBlue has placed its designator code and flight numbers from/to Belgrade to/from Amsterdam, Athens, Bucharest, Budapest, Larnaca, Paris, Prague, Sofia, and Vienna. Air Serbia already codeshares on over a dozen jetBlue destinations from New York JFK.

    What are the chances of JU codesharing on JetBlue JFK-LHR/CDG flights?

      I don't see why JU would want to. The whole point of finding a US partner was to enable onward US connections from JU long-haul flights, not to outsource a part of the long-haul traffic to them.

      I think they should outsource some of it at least the JFK-CDG-BEG sector!

      I'm not 10.23 but it is about redudancy. You have alternate option if something goes wrong, you can reroute some passengers, etc. You can always make those connection more expensive initially than your own flight, so you minimize canibalizaton but you get some felixibility.

      You can reroute the passangers regardless of codeshare agreements. KLM always reroutes me using Lufthansa, they have no codeshare, but they have some kind of interairline agreement for the rebooking cases. Having a codeshare agremeent is not a cheaper option for rerouting.

      When involuntary rerouting happens, airlines have a special pricing procedure so it is not the normal price available to the public

      And rerouting is meant to happen with the quickest option available and not just on your alliance or code-share partners, literally any airline under IATA rules.

      I don't know enough to tell whether it's worth it on the balance - but an additional reason to have some codeshare with JetBlue on JFK-LHR/CDG flights would be to beef up the schedule. Frequencies matter, especially to the premium customer (and while many JU pax are not 'premium', they do put a premium on their direct flights to the USA, and these premium customers, who are often schedule-sensitive, are the most important customers to capture)

    Jet Blue is a no frills Low cost Airline. Why doesn't JU code share with American or Delta instead?

      JetBlue is very much full service low cost carrier. It's mint service is the benchmark which Delta, American and United are trying to emulate. Stop making comments if you have not been on them or don't know anything about them.

      And also know that some US low cost carriers provide much better service that legacy carriers. For example, JetBlue and Southwest are much better service wise than AA or UA. It is not like Ryanair or Wizz.

      Jetblu sure offers lots of frills for a LCC. On service level, they are on par with Delta and above the rest of US carriers.

      not sure about AA, but UA gave me much better service than Swiss did on TATL.
      in terms of food and beverages and Flight attendant politeness.

    I wonder when airlines such as JetBlue will start direct flights to destinations such Sofia and Bucharest instead of codesharing. Eastern Europe is considerably less connected to the US

    I find it funny that if you try to book these flights on the B6 website it says they're operated by Jat Airways

      Some smaller Star Alliance members can't get bigger alliance members to allow them codeshare on the same number of destinations JetBlue and Air Serbia have. That's funny.

    They do fit well with each other.
    Both are airlines that are much underestimated.
