I have never flown them but I have read on here that IB in flight service, seating etc is dreadful.

Swissair used to have a codesharing agreement with IB on selected CH-ES flights. It seems they could negociate something better based on that.

It remains to be seen how LX customers like IB and vice versa. I've never flown them personally.

Having flown IB four times intra-Europe in the last few months (GVA-BCN, BCN-ORY, FCO-BCN and BCN-LHR I can report that my experience all four times was excellent. In flight service and seating in business was absolutely the best I've experienced intra-Europe. This includes having flown BA (the absolute worst), SAS, o.k., AF, o.k., SR, good but cramped. I have read other posts on problems with bumping and luggage but have not yet experienced the same.

This is the least generous % I have ever seen, short of no mileage credit!

It is as little as when you credit IB flight to AAdvantage(30%).

BA also only gives 30%.

I've flown IB several times and find them to compete favourably with LH, AF and BA.

Now the only major carrier from OW missing in Qualiflyer is BA itself.

Which is exactly the state Swissair had before they went bankrupt. SWISS so far has only restarted these codeshares, but not come up with anything really new. Mr. Dosé, I'm waiting... :.rolleyes:
