I can see Sterling's point, as well. Both United https://www.united.com/CMS/en-US/Market ... tners.aspx and Aer Lingus https://www.aerlingus.com/plan-and-book ... -partners/ consider the other airline as a partner. With regard to the UAL list, Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air have flights in the vUAL schedule; United's other worldwide partners do not.UAL718 Sterling Paulsen wrote: ↑August 14th, 2017, 1:26 pmI'm fine with the flights not being in the schedules, but Aer Lingus should really be added as an approved codeshare carrier. While not all of their flights are codeshares with United (BDL->DUB being a notable one), there are others that are (EI108/UA7628 and UA1256/EI6090 being two examples). To be completely honest, any of the airlines here should be an option as long as we can provide proof that the flight we fly carried a United flight number.
I think, for consistency, we either need to accept PIREPs flown under any of United's listed worldwide partners or stop accepting Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air PIREPs, allowing only PIREPs from airlines providing United Express services under contract or Star Alliance members.
Lest anyone suggest it, I am not advocating that we accept PIREPs for all partners' partners; i.e., no British Airways or Jet Blue because they're aligned with Aer Lingus.
