...from this weekend. The release doesn't mention the new AA route MAN-BOS though.

It's about time. Does anyone know the specific routes that they'll be codesharing on?

But you still won't earn BA miles on AA and AA miles on BA Transatlantic?

Does anyone have a copy of the release? I thought AA and BA needed approval before they codeshared on transatlantic flights.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

For clarification, so that we can all get our facts correctly! See the last paragraph!

From BA website:-

FIRST REGIONAL BA AA CODESHARES

British Airways’ first regional transatlantic codeshare flights with American Airlines to and from the UK regions, offering customers more choice and simpler booking, open for sale this weekend.

Daily flights from Manchester to New York and Chicago will now carry both airlines’ flight codes.
`
Also, new codeshare destinations added to the BA network will be Portland, Oregon; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Greenville, South Carolina and Madison, Wisconsin. In addition, the codeshare will provide additional frequencies to 6 other destinations including Denver, Atlanta and St Louis.

American Airlines will be extending its reach by placing its flight code on selected BA services from London Gatwick including Pristina. American will also be placing its code on BA longhaul services to Nairobi.

The US Department of Transportation gave approval in May last year to the codesharing application made by the two airlines to place each other’s code on services operated between the UK regions and USA. At the same time approval was given to codeshare on destinations beyond British Airways’ 18 US gateway cities, (such as Chicago and Miami), and American Airlines’ UK gateways.
The rollout of codeshare destinations beyond these points began in August 2003 and included Raleigh Durham, Nashville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Minneapolis St Paul, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, Panama City and San Antonio.
The codeshare relationship brings a substantial number of ‘new’ US, Central and South American destinations under the BA flight code and marks a significant increase to the number of routes bookable directly through BA.com, BA reservations and travel agents.

Customers of both airlines will enjoy the benefits of simpler transfer and check-in processes.

Transatlantic sectors between London and the US are not included in the current codeshare and frequent flyer agreements

LOL,

I wonder if BA and AA will ever consider actually moving their gates around such that they are within a mile of each other.

Richardw

the choice of flights is still the same, i.e.
BA -> MAN-JFK
AA -> MAN-ORD

just that both flights will carry the other airlines flight number aswell as their own.

TexAussie:
AA just announced their plans to move from the South Terminal to the North Terminal at LGW. This would allow for easier connections to / from BA.

You can accrue BA miles on any AA flight and vicky versa however if you are an AAdvantage member you can't redeem your miles on a BA flight for which there is also an American Airlines flight (e.g. trans atlantic). Same story if you are an executive club member and you want to fly on AA from LHR to JFK.

AirxLiban - you cannot earn BA Miles or Executive Club Points on transatlantic flights operated by AA, and vice versa. But you can earn on all other qualifying AA flights (and vice versa), e.g. I flew BA LHR-LAX and then LAX-SAN on American Eagle and earned all my points and miles fine. Had I flown AA LHR-LAX-SAN, I'd have only earned on the LAX-SAN leg.

I believe this is part of some anti-monopoly/trust restriction on their deepened cooperation. It is a long-standing thing.

Actually, this has recently changed. You can now earn AA miles on all BA transatlantic flights except those to / from USA.

Interesting. Does this just apply to AA members, do you know? According to BA at:

https://www.britishairways.com/travel/ecmilesearninfo/public/en_gb

You can earn BA Miles with our oneworld(TM) partner airlines**...**Excluding American Airlines direct services between Europe and the Americas

and at:

https://www.britishairways.com/travel/ba6.jsp/ecpartnroneworld/public/en_gb

BA Miles and Tier Points cannot be earned or redeemed on American Airlines transatlantic flights between UK/Europe and the Americas.
