    Qatar Airways is open to revenue-sharing partnerships with other airlines that are part of its global airline alliance, including British Airways , the chief executive of the Gulf carrier said on Tuesday.

    Akbar Al Baker said Qatar Airways was in talks with British Airways, one of the founding members of the oneworld alliance, on a codesharing agreement - in which the airlines would share some flights - and was open to stronger partnerships in the future.

    "We will consider revenue-sharing partnerships with our oneworld partners," Baker said on the sidelines of a business jet exhibition.

    "But it will not just be revenue-sharing but also loss-sharing. We have to be able to support each other."
