Who does Southern Airways Express codeshare with?

Looking to go to Hot Springs, AR next month and thought about flying, does Southern Airways Express codeshare with AA out of DFW? Or should I just stick to LIT?
TIA

LH downgauged to the 748 for the winter/holidays. And IIRC UA uses the 77W on one of the LHR flights as well as hub to hub. UA ferried the B77W to IAH and it then operated IAH-NRT-SFO.
