Air Tahiti Nui and American Airlines announced commence code-share relations linking Tahiti with LAX and 15 beyond US markets.
As proposed AA would code-share on TN's PPT-LAX service, with TN code-sharing on AA routes from LAX. (understand these will be Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, NYC, Washington, Las Vegas, Miami, Reno, Phoenix, San Francisco, Tucson, Salt Lake)
Here is press release:
Previously AA had a frequent flyer relationship with TN where members could redeem miles on TN.
I wonder if this is a step in the long rumored TN entry into an alliance? Earlier TN also expanded its Qantas code-share via AKL.
Interesting no AA code-share on TN LAX-CDG service - this is the route that probably needs to support as its so long and costly to operate.
