Alaska, Continental ending
codeshare, frequent flier ties


Value of relationship diminished now that
the Eskimo serves Houston and Newark


July 24, 2009 ― Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air will end their codeshare and frequent flier partnership with
Continental this fall — meaning customers will no longer be able to book codeshare flights or earn or redeem miles interchangeably between the carriers. The decision to end the partnership was mutual


I hear we wanted CAL to put the code share on our IAH flight and they told ALK to take a long walk. Sounds like ALK may up its IAH flights from one to two or maybe even three. Sounds like 20 furloughs at most.​

Glad one airline like CAL wants to do their own flying.. Good on you CAL.

Don't worry AK I am sure AA would love to code-share more with you, ala more flying for you all and less flying us...

Not yet. UAL goes under and liquidates. American picks up a majority of the Pacific routes and looks at Alaska for a stronger codeshare. Then Delta will step up and buy us to prevent American from sleeping with us, I mean codesharing with us.

Yet another moron looking for the demise of UAL. This is really getting boring

You should ask the Captain that when you ask to ride his jumpseat.

Houston is in Texas, do the math. I wear Roopers in the winter and European-style formal toecaps in the summer. Lots of DAL mainline and connection pilots wear boots.

Sorry if they're not metro enough for you?

Cal is not doing any extra flying... Just switching its west coast feed to UAL. I think these two have to be merging soon. Hopefully the new UAL will be managed better and do well. We need some good news and some healthy airlines so we all can have better careers.

Yeah dude, it's just a IAH thing. NO other airline wears cowboy boots. Only at CAL and only in Houston.

Are cowboy boots not cool in your high school?

Had to ask my wife wtf a "European-style formal toecap" was and should I know. Her answer....No, you are not gay.

This makes sense as CAL leaves Sky Team and joins Star.
ALK has a very inclusive code share with DAL. When DAL merged with NWA and left CAL at the alter the path was set.

I'm a born and raised So Cal surfer and I wear Ariat boots in the winter. The only way to keep my feet warm in the Artic or snow...And they look stylie (So say the f/a's.)
