Correct that it was actually announced as an interline ticketing agreement, not codeshares. I'll fix the thread title.

I confirmed today with someone from Corp R.E. that we will be operating out of Term A, the old term. I don't care, I'm just glad we're there beggers can't be choosy.

no, spirit, AC, and airtran are out of A (sorry i don't know those codes).

AS and CO are out of the hallway between A and B. I guess that's A? i have never flown out of that part of DCA before.

JetBlueFA,

How do the other FA's feel about this partnership? Any rumors going around?

Nope...you clear security at B for CO, AS and F9 which operate from that section; same checkpoint as DL.
Being down at A is annoying for the extra 5 minutes to/from the Metro and because of the antiquated terminal facilities, but not really a surprise that those are the gates available and worthwhile for the sake of having operations at DCA.

To me it's just an interline deal. The same thing that every other airline has with each other. The ability to book flights on 2 seperate airlines with one ticket and the ability to transfer bags. However I just flew with an FO and FA that see this as a beginning of a planned buyout. The FA was/is former TWA and he and the FO went back and forth about this for the entire 4 days. The both said that in under 2 years we will be bought by AA and all of us will be out of jobs.

So we will be right at home . The same could be said about T5 in JFK when walking from the AirTrain to Ticketing.

AA's treatment of TWA staff didn't seem too great but then TWA was bust when they acquired them and had little room to bargain. In the case of B6 I suspect the shoe might be very much on the other foot - as it stands today AA has zero chance of affording B6!

i think F9 got moved to A when NW moved to B.

and while the walk from the metro isn't fun, using DCA will be much easier then IAD. especially if they have flights to JFK.

i always fly out of midfield or US shuttle. i miss the legal seafoods.

JetBlue just filed a $99 DCA-BOS fare and a $139 DCA-MCO fare, for travel after 01 Nov, booking before 05 May. Unless they're just fooling around, could they possibly be going to load DCA flights into the schedule before 05 May?

I have no idea if they'll load the schedules now or if they are just working on getting some fares published to signal their intentions. There are also fares published for CLT, FLL and JFK. There are not fares published for RDU, PWM, BTV or AUS. Those are the only ones I checked.

Hard to believe they'd fly non-stop to 5 destinations with as few slots as they have, but maybe...
