American Airlines And Japan Airlines Begin Joint Sales Of Airfares From Japan To North America
Japan Airlines (JAL) and American Airlines (American) today announced the implementation of the next phase of their joint business through joint selling in Japan beginning February 1, 2011. The two airlines have coordinated most of their Business Class and Economy Class fares for North America-bound flights originating from Japan effective April 1, 2011 – the day the airlines commence their trans-Pacific joint business.
As a result, new customer benefits for customers originating in Japan and purchasing tickets for travel to North America on or after April 1, 2011 will gain additional customer benefits that include:
- It will now be easier for customers to benefit from carrier-filed discount fares for itineraries using both airlines as well as a combination of different classes of service. Previously, it was much more difficult and expensive to combine itineraries between the airlines or when the class of service was not the same round trip due to restrictions which limited discount fare levels to the use of a single airline’s flights or to one class of service.
- The closer coordination and tighter relationship between the two airlines and the commencement of joint selling announced today enables customers’ greater access to lower fares and provides them many more choices when making travel arrangements.
- The joint business also expands the number of destinations that JAL and American customers can access more easily.
