Codeshare Inquiry

Sat Jul 08, 2000 8:49 am

While perusing the latest AA timetable, I notice a flight from LAX to JFK offered with a 747-400 (flight 7365) 4x per week. Doing a double-take, I notice it is operated by Qantas!

Here is my question: Could I purchase a ticket for flight 7365 and fly a QANTAS 747-400 to JFK? That would be a nice change of pace! It seems odd that AA would codeshare on a route that they already fly 11x daily, though. Does anybody know if this info is correct, and if so, why AA is codesharing on a QF flight to JFK???

I checked Travelocity, and your flight AA7365 is a Qantas codeshare from Sydney to JFK. The codeshare flight from LAX to JFK is not listed, and you probably cannot buy a ticket on this flight because of restrictions on foreign carriers operating domestically in the US.

Hope that helps.
