Quoting Reggaebird (Reply 1): Why would they need this if they codeshare with QF? Is this because QF is turning over regional services to JQ?
I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think it's because QF doesn't fly the intra-NZ routes anymore. As such, someone booking a ticket through AA to, say, CHC would only get an AA code to AKL and then would have a JQ flight number from AKL to CHC. In addition, I believe that AA and JQ don't have an e-ticketing agreement so the result would be paper tickets. This new agreement should hopefully eliminate both of these problems.

Quoting BOStonsox (Reply 4): AA doesn't fly to AKL, so I assume that the interline allows pax to fly JQ to AKL, then QF to LAX, and then AA to wherever, right? How many three-airline codeshares like this are there?
AA does place its code on QF25/26, so this allows a pax to book AA 7337 from LAX to AKL and connect on to CHC on a single ticket.
