BA codeshares with Loganair from SOU

Just spotted an announcement on LinkedIn of all places. BA has made a codeshare partnership with Loganair on the following routes from SOU
SOU-NCL
SOU-EDI
SOU-GLA

Not checked the impact on ability to earn TPs yet...
(Now I have. Is indeed showing up on the calculator)

Well spotted. Codeshares earn the TPs and Avios of the underlying selling class of the ticket concerned, so typically in the 5 to 10 TP range, given that Loganair has no business class. I got an email from Loganair to say a sale is coming, which may depress base fares. Anyway, best used for eligible flights, where otherwise impossible to gain. Eligible Flights are currently part suspended for BAEC qualification (more details in the relevant thread).

I noticed this when an option from NCL to LHR was via SOU and GLA with Loganair BA codeshares.

I'm surprised nobody has raised the question of B2Bs yet....

Definitely a handy way of accruing your 4 flights if nothing else works.

Having done NCL-SOU in a cramped FlyBe Dash-8, Iíd say most things are an improvement... do we know whether the Embraers or the ATRs are used on these routes?

Well SOU is easy for a B2B or connection. Thereís no airside route but Iíd say the walk from plane through arrivals back to security is no more than 2 mins.

What Iím intrigued with is where do BACF fit into this. ?

BACF are running a weekend series out of Southampton for the summer- the Southampton marketing person probably had this in mind when they wrote the tweet

Itís pretty left-field for BA and goes back to a time before ďFuture Size and ShapeĒ when all the regional operations were closed or sold.

I canít imagine sales will be huge, but the cost of doing this is basically nothing. Ryanair have spoken of being the Amazon.com of travel. If BA expand their codeshare relationships in U.K. regions and push their holidays a bit more, they will be a lot closer to that aim than FR.

One thing is for sure, the model of 747s 8+ Daily with 100 seat J cabins to NYC are over for the foreseeable.
