American Airlines and Japan Airlines have gained Chinese government approval to codeshare on routes to China (Shanghai Daily, 08-Apr-2011). The approval will enable JAL to sell tickets on American Airlines routes between China and the US – including Shanghai-Los Angeles launched on this week – according to American Airlines Pacific VP Theo Panagiotoulias. The agreement is expected to provide a challenge to China's domestic carriers. "We can offer better transit services for passengers from China to the United States with our strong flight network in the US," Mr Panagiotoulias said.
