<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">But what's the sense in that? If it's exactly the same flight why would someone pay 50% more especially when all the frequent flyer benefits are reciprocal?? Except for 1000-2000 mile Check-in/On-line bonus why would someone pay 50% for the same exact flight??

They don't know about the codeshare price (they price it out on continental.com, for example - they never see the cheaper NW fare).

I suppose other things (like voucher usage) could factor in, but fundamentally, lack of knowledge is the only reason to pay more for a NW vs. CO ticket for flights on the same physical aircraft.
