FORT WORTH, Tx. (AFX) - US carrier American Airlines and the Ukraine's largest carrier AeroSvit Airlines have entered into a special pro-rate agreement that promises to significantly increase travel between the two countries.
This AeroSvit-American Airline agreement recognizes the Interline accord whereby, airline partners accept each other's travel tickets. Passengers have the opportunity to travel with one airline's ticket on the flights of the other carrier.
This commercial agreement came into effect on Jan. 1, 2007.

Well, basically etix interline agreements are not different to "normal" paper ticket interline agreements at all. But right, the number of those agreements is much smaller and it will take time to implement more of them.
Here in Switzerland eg. BSP set a target that all carriers selling tickets here via BSP need to implement etix and stop selling them. Having said that normal interline agreements are useless and etix interlining agreements are the only option when including another 2nd carrier into a ticket or issuing a external carrier on its own ticket stock. This rule is not only for Switzerland but also for plenty of other European carriers as well. A lot of foreign carriers not having etix at all (eg QR, MH etc) are being challenged here quite a lot!
