That's really great news. US will add a lot connection options as it clear from the press release:

For US Airways customers, this agreement will eventually provide a convenient, single-source booking, ticketing and baggage connection option for many new destinations inside Brazil, including Sao Paulo, Salvador, Recife and Brasilia through TAM’s Rio de Janeiro hub.

On the DOT's docket, there is a complete list of the destinations that are going to be offered with the US code from GIG:

BEL, BSB, GRU, CNF, CWB, FLN, FOR, IGU, JPA, MAO, MCZ, NAT, POA, REC, SLZ, SSA, VCP and VIX

Interesting, i just believe they could ask to include CGH, Sao Paulo downtown airport.

This would give US some additional traffic.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Hopefully this will improve the performance of the CLT-GIG-CLT route. Actually, this is something the airline should have sought from when the route was launched, but oh well.

I'm not sure how it works, but isn't TAM joining Star Alliance today (or yesterday)? Perhaps they were waiting for that?

A mistake for waiting on the still pending slot transaction for Sao Paulo. I just believe that after got nice results in December/January, any airline would look forward to further consolidate what they have on their hands.
In my view the code-share with TAM would give to them valuable passengers not only on GIG-CLT but also on many routes TAM will code-share on US flights*:

JFK-ATL
JFK-DFW
JFK-HNL
JFK-LAX
JFK-PDX
JFK-PHL
JFK-PHX
JFK-SEA
JFK-SFO
JFK-SLC

MCO-BOS
MCO-BMI
MCO-DCA
MCO-DEN
MCO-LAS
MCO-MNS
MCO-Chicago
MCO-PHL
MCO-SAN
MCO-SFO
MCO-SEA

MIA-SFO
MIA-BOS
MIA-BMI
MIA-EWR
MIA-DCA
MIA-Houston
MIA-Chicago
MIA-PHL
MIA-LGA

*many of them with 1 stop service

They could apply before. TAM already asked and got approval for the code-share with UA and CO.
