"Travelers will now have seamless access to both airlines’ domestic and international networks"


New and expanded routes: American intends to launch service between JFK and TLV and will introduce new seasonal service between JFK and ATH next summer" "American will also operate daily seasonal service to GIG beginning in winter 2021 during the peak summer travel period in Rio de Janeiro. And, once the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has ended, the new partnership is certain to facilitate American adding new long-haul markets in Europe, Africa, India and South America.

JetBlue plans to increase flying out of New York’s three major airports, bringing its award-winning experience to more customers. Its growth at JFK will be aimed at offering even more connection opportunities to American’s growing international network of destinations

More choice and loyalty benefits: JetBlue and American will begin a new codeshare relationship, giving customers seamless access to more destinations, including international service

Seamless experience: JetBlue and American will offer customers more options on Transcon service from New York to the West Coast. American’s popular three-class service on the Airbus A321T will join JetBlue with its Mint premium experience and thoughtful core seating


WOW!!! Vasu Raja is the man! Northeast partnership with B6, West Coast partnership with AS....

I'm sure this will benefit both airlines. Jetblue will be allowed to grow JFK and LGA using AA slots, and the trans atlantic ambitions remain in tact. American can utilize feed from jetblue to service destinations outside jetblue's current ambitions and aircraft range. American gets to benefit from additional services to the northeast that it couldn't serve profitably. How much will jetblue grow in JFK? Who knows, but it'll be much bigger then today IMO.

I don't know about NYC either...UA and DL may still be larger. This could also be a sign that AA plans to shrink fairly significantly in the Northeast. B6's press release mentions AA plans to deploy larger 2-class RJs to the region next year. That implies AA is pulling mainline back and backfilling with Eagle.

This certainly gives rise to strange bedfellows on the transcons, with AA+AS, AA+B6 “cooperating” but still competing with each other (by the letter of the law).

AA has a fairly large and underutilized gate footprint at EWR. Consolidating operations with AA gives B6 access to additional gates for growth that is not restricted by slots.

Based on 2019 data, in NYC AA+B6 (34.7 million passengers) is marginally larger than DL (32.9 million) or UA (32.9 million).

There's a lot of excitement for a simple codeshare. Until they get antitrust immunity (doubtful, IMHO, and they didn't even declare intent to seek it) they can't coordinate pricing, schedules, or capacity.

#22326189
Hmm, I wonder what this means for PHL as a European gateway. I cannot see AA giving it up (as that would likely cause a downward spiral for other flights there) but not sure how having a stronger European gateway at JFK will do anything but hurt PHL in the long-term.

AA appears to be doing now at SEA with AS and with B6 in the Northeast that DL originally had wanted to do with AS and SEA a decade ago.

Strange times indeed. Cooperate, partnership, but still competitors. And can't coordinate on pricing, scheduling, and capacity. They sure can signal each other though.

Kind of feels like the old Business Express set-up from decades gone by.

It’s a good thing AA has a lot of money spare to go and fight Delta in NYC with a partner they can’t legally coordinate very much with. Curious to see how this one will work out, should be interesting.

It was worded right in Vasu's statement that this would not impact PHL as the TA gateway.

I honestly feel despite the industry literally burning to the ground that AA is taking the "go big or go home approach" for the future while DL and UA have turtled into their shell.

DL and UA seem focused on trying to navigate the next 9 months, meanwhile AA is like ah screw it who cares about the rest of 2020 and early 2021 we are focused on Summer 2021 and beyond at this point.

It sounds more like AA is weak on the West Coast and needed a partner to help them so went with AS who is strong domestically while AA brings international flights to the table. And the same occurred in NYC where AA has been struggling as of late and therefore sought out a partner who helps them significantly domestically while AA brings the international markets to the table.

Just to remind everyone here, AA and B6 used to have an on and off relationship. So this is NOT NEW, but a RESUME of past friendship. I welcome anyone who has the precise information on the previous AA+B6 cooperation. I can only vaguely remember before 2007 there was B6 earning and redemption availability in AA Advantage programme. I also vaguely remember the earning on B6 with AA was restricted to northeast market as well. Anyone here still remember the details?

It did the same with AS where it realized it could not build a West Coast transpacific hub on its own and therefore partnered with AS in SEA.

You are correct it will be a Grand Slam or a strike out swinging but as Vasu said just taking three strikes down the middle is a guaranteed strike out we have all seen before. BTW IMHO United , not AA is the airline in real deep trouble.

AA had a limited codeshare agreement with B6 about a decade or so ago. IIRC you could earn RDMs on certain routes. Also IIRC it was tied to mostly NE routes. For example I flew LGA/PBI on B6 around 2011/2012 and wasn't eligible for AAdvantage miles. However, I flew EWR/BOS several times and got RDMs for the trips.

You have to wonder where this might go long term.

codeshare is as far as they can go. Anything further would not work with B6's pilot contract.

As for the other part, I think it's quite clear that JetBlue is going to fast forward a very aggressive expansion in NY/NJ airports which will probably allow the combined B6/AA operation to be much larger than DL and UA. I would not be surprised if JetBlue's operation will end up carrying the most passengers by the time their expansion is done.

In the end if AA only flies to JFK from Hubs with mainline, operates a bunch of regionals for the small NE cities and greatly increases international flying out of JFK all while making a profit is not retreating in any way, but a huge win and success. It is called smart and strategic business thinking! The airline business is not about market share, that has always been the dumbest idea ever! No other businesses have huge, never ending, guaranteed loss leaders just to say they sell to a certain area.

Yep, everything makes sense. Jetblue is getting ready for a mass expansion in NY/NJ area next year. The puzzling part is AA. JetBlue pilots might be the biggest winner here.

JetBlue gets more slots at JFK, more slots at LGA, more gates at LAX, codeshare to give it a larger network, ability to put its passengers on AA during IRROPS. This gives JetBlue a clear path to be a real player in the largest corporate accounts in Northeast.

AA gets to keep its ff in northeast in short to medium term and help make it more attractive to customers in rest of country.

It seems like a lot more benefit to JetBlue here. In 5 years, we could see JetBlue with full blown networks in JFK/LGA/EWR/BOS and large presence in Florida and California. They will be doing a lot of European flights out of JFK. If you are liiving in the northeast, what's your reason for staying with AA rather than becoming a JetBlue ff?

big losers here are DL and UA.

You should read into retail & consumer goods, loss leaders are extremely common.

And market share is very important, at least to the US3. If you aren't the largest then your only real differentiators are better product & lower pricing.

Just taking your home airport as an example, I see JetBlue now entering IND from BOS/JFK and possible EWR. That would give people a lot more reason to pick AA ahead of DL.

AA has a fairly large and underutilized gate footprint at EWR. Consolidating operations with AA gives B6 access to additional gates for growth that is not restricted by slots.


Right, now you have AA saying openly they will help JetBlue get larger in all 3 airports. That will definitely hurt UA at EWR and DL at LGA/JFK.

on the UA angle. I'm really surprised they were slow here. When AA/AS deal first came out, I said UA should get on a phone and partner up with B6. Now, their NY/NJ operation is under serious attack. I see B6 easily getting to 100 flights a day at EWR if AA is willing to allow them to use their gates there.

Well this is quite the coup. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when they were negotiating codeshare revenue splits. I have an inkling it was very favorable to B6.

Agreed on the earlier point re: JFK vs PHL. When international travel does come back in appreciable numbers, it'll be interesting to see how AA manages flows through the NE to Europe.

All the credit in the world to AA and B6, they're sure not taking this crisis laying down. Now they just need Florida, California, Arizona and Texas to get their heads out of the sand and tackle their growing cases. It hurts UA at EWR and LAX, but this definitely is a high and in fastball right at Delta. Seattle and LAX with AS and now BOS, JFK, LGA with B6.

Meanwhile WN just keeps doing their thing. I wonder what NK is doing, I drove past EWR on the way to work today and it's was looking like a mini NK hub with no less than six NK Airbuses parked at Terminal B.

They've announced firm plans (announced schedule of expanded service) to grow in EWR. Outside of that, they haven't done any of that. In LAX, they shifted their current operations from LGB to LAX. They said they hoped to get the station to 70 flights a day within 5 years. Nothing firm announced. Re JFK/LGA/BOS, what firm plans have been announced?
