Codeshares - new El Al strategy?

Code share agreements with LOT and Hong Kong Airlines.

(Contrary to what the articles say, i've often found that codeshare flights often have very restrictive rules about earning miles).

For the case of HKG,LY used to be the monopoly of the HKG TLV market,

however, when CX joins the market,it expands very quickly from Airbus 350-900 4 weekly to A350-1000 daily in the near future.

Capacity wise, CX have growth almost double in 1.5 years whereas the growth of LY is almost none.

LY tries hard to get back these customers, but those travelling with CX, I am sure the majority of the passengers won't go back to LY or RJ

Making feed in HKG with HX and QF does help ?
HX is not at the same level as CX, in terms of schedule wise and experience wise (both hard and soft products)
QF, can feed but schedule wise is fair, and destinations are limited to Australia and perhaps New Zealand

Not really a new strategy; LY has already numerous codeshare agreements with various airlines from all three big alliances (although I can not name right now one from SkyTeam).

Thanks; I should have known that especially since I'm taking several flights with them very soon (not as a LY codeshare, god forbid )

How much connecting time will be needed between a codeshare flight and a flight on El Al metal? Given the time-consuming security procedures before boarding (or even checking in) an El Al flight, I would be surprised if they allow short transfers. (Unless, of course, if the security procedures will be carried out even on codeshared flights.)
