Antitrust Immunity And International Airline Alliances : Figure 1

Figure 1 shows six cities, with city H representing a hub in the US and city K representing a hub in Europe. City H is connected to city A (and other unlabelled cities in the U.S.) by flights on the U.S. carrier. City K is connected to city D (and other unlabelled cities in Europe) by flights operated by the foreign carrier. Both the U.S. and foreign carriers offer flights between H and K, but only the U.S. carrier can operate to city A, and only the foreign carrier can operate to city D. Customers wanting to fly the city-pair between A and D must use both airlines, and are considered behind/beyond passengers.
