Not sure if someone else posted this, I didnt see it.

From the Article:

"Simon Talling-Smith, British Airways' executive vice president of the Americas, said he is "relatively confident" that the carriers will be able to expand the partnership later this year, telling reporters he doesn't believe there will be any hold ups in antitrust approval despite the recent change of administration in Washington.

The antitrust approval — required from both the U.S. and European Union — would allow the carriers to cooperate on new routes and plan day-to-day scheduling together. The partnership would also allow passengers to earn and use frequent flier miles on both carriers."

Let's hope he is correct.

AA and BA should have gotten antitrust immunity years ago, but now with open skies and Heathrow open to anyone, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever that they should not get their immunity. They are already placed at such an enormous, and needless, competitive disadvantage to every single other immunized transatlantic alliance, despite the fact that, even with AA-BA antitrust immunity, the market between the U.S. and Britain, and London specifically, will remain the most competitive of any across the Atlantic.
