Reply To: Interlining between legacy and low-cost airlines

Back to Forum


I am rather intrigued by the Gatwick offer since when you think about, we already incur costs for interlining. If I was using an LCC to connect with another airline, I would have to allow extra time (possibly including an overnight stay in a hotel). In addition, the extra time given would be used to pay for meals and drinks and before long you have a substantial cost (which can still be worth it). So an interlining fee that guarantees a connection or next flight may be cost effective.
