Codesharing is the most common type of airline partnership; it involves one airline selling tickets for another airline s flights under its own airline code. An early example of this was Japan Airlines (JAL) codesharing partnership with Aeroflot in the 1960s on Tokyo–Moscow flights; Aeroflot operated the flights using Aeroflot aircraft but JAL sold tickets for the flights as if they were JAL flights. This practice allows airlines to expand their operations at least on paper into parts of the world where they cannot afford to establish bases or purchase aircraft. Another example was the Austrian–Sabena partnership on the Vienna–Brussels–New York/JFK route during the late 60s using a Sabena Boeing 707 with Austrian livery.
A complicating factor is that of origin-destination control ( O&D control ). Someone purchasing a ticket from Melbourne to Sydney (as an example) for A$200 is competing with someone else who wants to fly Melbourne to Los Angeles through Sydney on the same flight and who is willing to pay A$1400. Should the airline prefer the $1400 passenger or the $200 passenger plus a possible Sydney-Los Angeles passenger willing to pay $1300? Airlines have to make hundreds of thousands of similar pricing decisions daily.
