airBaltic codeshares with SAS again

SAS had very competitively priced flights out of RIX last year. Itís a pity SAS failed with RIX flights again.

Of course, no EB points on these codeshares ... ?

Excitement was there, then appreciated the clarification.

FB has a thread wondering weather tea/coffee will be free for SK codeshares. I doubt because SAS won't pay for that most likely.

OTOH Air France pays for that on BT codeshares. Snack and bottle of water. Flight attendants serve those pax first saying "Greetings/compilments from Air France".

Code share has nothing to do with the service, EB status etc. It's simply a way so the airlines can claim they are flying to a specific destination without operating flights there them self. All service, point earning etc. are dependent on the airline operating the metal.

I used to fly CPH-RIX quite a bit, back in the day when there was still basis points to be had for flying BT. Even after they switched to buy on board, I do remember them as a decent airline.
I don't think I have flown BT after their near death experience, and under the curre r incarnation.

Has any EBG/EBD flown SK on 117 stock Scandinavia-Riga operated by BT recently?

I just bought a 117 ticket on 657. Overall cost of including 1 checked baggage was cheaper on 117 ticket.
Will I get SK lounge access as EBG on SK operated by BT on 117 stock?

According to the rules (i.e. operating carrier) no. But since it is a SK coded flight, nicely asking can help to get some goodwill.

It's always the operating carrier which defines the benefits on a flight. Codeshare doesn't help. So no lounge or fasttrack access etc. You will not earn any EB points on the flight either, nor will your *G status help you on this flight.
