Just curious - how would the costs/profits be 'split' between the carriers for either 'methods' ???

For interline, it's based on a prorate agreement between the two airlines...which is what Malindo's doing now - discussing with those airlines the exact terms and putting out press releases such as and when those terms are agreed between the airlines.

For codeshares, there are two types.

Free flow codeshare is basically what MH is doing now with Emirates. The marketing airline (MH) can sell EK's entire network at prices, fare classes set by Emirates. MH essentially becomes EK's local travel agent.

The second one is blocked space codeshare, where airlines are allocated a certain number of seats to sell.

The costs depends on how friendly one airline is to the other. For example, if you book a flight on Singapore Airlines from Singapore to say, Boston in Economy Class. Besides those flights on jetBlue and Virgin America, you'll see connections on interline flights operated by American Airlines and Delta. Due to SQ being in competing alliances, AA and DL "discourage" travel by offering the highest of fare classes on the New York-JFK to Boston route (usually First Class), and as a result, the flight may cost up to 14,000sgd. On jetBlue, which Singapore Airlines has a close relationship with, the interline costs are far lower, leading to a more reasonable 2,000sgd fare.

An alliance is a joint marketing venture, and usually comprises both forms of codesharing (free flow and blocked space). One example is the Qantas-Emirates alliance, where both airlines market their networks as one, with reciprocal mileage accrual and redemption, lounge access, priority boarding. This joint marketing, a.k.a. offering a one-stop platform (local to its own respective market) to access a global network is the very foundation of the alliances, Oneworld, SkyTeam, Star Alliance, Etihad Partners and Vanilla Alliance.

So all these words 'Alliance, Interlining & Code-share' in the airline industry are 'similar' in concept (ie co-operation between separate carriers) but have different 'methods' of implementation lor !!!

Not exactly. I suppose you could describe them as degrees of cooperation between airlines. Interline is the most basic, followed by codeshare, alliance, antitrust immunity joint venture and finally, merger and acquisition.
