Gol Linhas, Delta expand codeshare agreement
GOL Linhas (GOL) announced the implementation of GOL codeshare on Delta's (DAL) flights from Brasilia to Atlanta. GOL will now sell Delta's international tickets through its sales channels. Over the next months other markets will be included in the codeshare, including all Delta flights between Brazil and the United States, as well as key connecting markets operated by the U.S. company, GOL stated.
Uhhhhhhh, this one is GOOD for DL, and the DL pilots. Now GOL, the airline DL invested in, will put the Brasilia to Atlanta DL 757 on codeshare, allowing Brazillians to fly from smaller cities in Central and Northern Brazil (that are too small for DL to go to) to Brasilia, and then connect onto the DL plane. The 757 is regularly full, and more pax means it could be expanded to a larger plane, like a 767ER possibly. This announcement was GOOD for DL pilots, and DL profitability on this route in particular.
