    There are different levels of cooperation between airlines. For example, the highest level of cooperation between airlines is a joint venture, whereby airlines share revenue for a given market. Below that you have codeshares, whereby airlines sell tickets on one another's flights under their own "code." And then you also have airlines with interline agreements, which in reality is a pretty low level of cooperation. Basically this allows airlines to: -- Check bags when multiple airlines are involved which don't otherwise partner -- Rebook passengers on one another in the event of irregular operations -- Handle passengers traveling on itineraries which require multiple airlines Well, it seems like that was too much cooperation for American and Delta, as they'll be discontinuing their interline agreement as of Tuesday, September 15, 2015.
