I’m made quite a career out of whining about the aviation industry, but even I need someone’s shoulder to moan on every so often. As I sit here in a hotel room in Bordeaux trying to get back to the states from France using an American/Iberia code-share ticket, the story of how I got here … and how I’ll get back was simply too much even for an ex-airline guy like me. Imagine my shock when it took four different airline partners to complete one trip across the Atlantic.
Best of all, many of the French aviation unions are calling a strike for first thing Monday … the day I head back to America. Oh goodie.
I knew only one man could help me keep my sanity and explain for whom exactly, airline code-sharing is such a great solution.
I called Brett Snyder … The Cranky Flier. Before YOU book a ticket on an airline partner, you’d better give our conversation a listen.
