American Airlines and Japan Airlines gain approval to codeshare on China routes

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.
