From the perspective of customers, the benefits provided by codeshare flight are as follows:
More destinations available due to the united route network;
Ordered flight plan creates smooth flight connection;
By means of Frequent Flyer Management System, passengers can earn miles from the marketing company;
Reduce connection time in the connecting airport;
More fare options offered by the united codeshare network;
Seamless flights facilitate your travel, just like from one same airline;
At some airports, the facilities transporting passengers and baggage can be shared.
