AA Codesharing With SQ: Changi Says So?

Wed Nov 24, 2004 5:11 am

What's up with this?

Nothing on neither AA's nor SQ's site to confirm this, and it does seem indeed odd. Nothing to do with JL either.



The official website for Changi International Airport (http://www.changiairport.com.sg) shows that AA is codesharing on SQ flights from three destinations:

  • AA8398 JFK-SIN
    (they exclude FRA, so not sure if it applies to stopover rights, assuming it exists)

  • AA8397 LAX-SIN
    (this is via NRT, not the nonstop)

  • AA8399 SFO-SIN
    (same situation with the ICN stopover being excluded)



    ....neither LAX's website nor AA's website recognizes these flight numbers, but they're plainly there on Changi's. That, and some Singaporeans on the Airwise forums have been talking about it for a while.


    What's up with this??

    IIRC, AA inherited a boatload of cargo codesharing agreements when it acquired TWA's assets, TW's codeshares with SQ among them. I'm willing to bet that someone accidentally loaded the AA/SQ cargo codeshares into the passenger systems.

    I don't see what the big deal is? Airlines codeshare all the time. It's a conspiracy!  Smile
