American Airlines, Inc. Key Developments

Qantas and American Airlines Receive an Interim Tick of Approval from The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to Introduce Joint Services Between Australia and the United States

Qantas and American Airlines have received an interim tick of approval from the competition watchdog to introduce joint services between Australia and the United States. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has granted an interim authorization for the new services, they are likely to lead to extra capacity on the Sydney-Los Angeles route and flights between Sydney and San Francisco. Qantas and American Airlines formed a five-year alliance in 2011 and recently sought to expand the arrangement.

Qantas and American Airlines Announce a Significant Expansion of Longstanding Relationship

Qantas and American Airlines announced a significant expansion of their longstanding relationship, which will see the US carrier fly from Los Angeles to Sydney for the first time and Qantas return to San Francisco. Subject to approval from regulators, this expansion represents a natural evolution of the existing alliance between Qantas and American, providing the airlines with a platform for further growth, closer commercial ties, and an even more seamless customer experience on routes between North America and Australia/New Zealand. As part of the changes, the four year old Qantas and American Airlines joint venture will shift to a Route revenue share agreement. Qantas' flights to San Francisco are made possible by American Airlines starting a direct daily Sydney to Los Angeles service from 19 December 2015. This will replace four Qantas' B747 Sydney to Los Angeles services per week and one Qantas B747 Melbourne to Los Angeles service per week. American Airlines' Trans-Pacific flights will be operated by its new B777-300ER featuring lie-flat seats in First and Business. Qantas will retain its daily A380 Sydney to Los Angeles and Melbourne to Los Angeles services, as well as its B747 Brisbane-Los Angeles flights, and the airlines will codeshare on each other's services.

Birmingham Airport and American Airlines Announce Daily Direct Flights Between Birmingham and New York John F. Kennedy Airport

Birmingham Airport and American Airlines have announced the launch of new direct daily flights between Birmingham and New York John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK). The American Airlines flight will operate daily, arriving from JFK into Birmingham at 0700 local UK time. It will depart for its return leg at 0900, arriving into New York JFK. The route will provide nearly 100,000 seats between Birmingham Airport and JFK. Through the American Airlines and British Airways partnership and oneworld airline alliance, the new service will offer a British Airways code share, allowing customers to earn and redeem BA air miles and Avios points. The new direct service also comes as American tourists have spent around GBP 40 million in Birmingham last year, while the Midlands exported GBP 4.8 billion to North America, giving a trade surplus of GBP 2.9 billion. The new flights are available via and, and through travel agents. The service will be operated by a Boeing 757 aircraft with 16 business and 160 economy seats.
