Beginning today, each airline will no longer accept new interline sales for
travel on the other carrier. Effective April 1, customers will no longer earn
miles or points when traveling on eligible routes operated by the other
airline. All American AAdvantage miles or JetBlue TrueBlue points already
accrued through this partnership will be credited to customers' accounts and
are not affected. The two airlines are working together to ensure these
changes have little impact to customers.
