American Airlines to put its AA code on British Airways flights to India

American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) and British Airways (London) have received approval from the Indian government to place the AA* code on British Airways flights from London to the following Indian cities: Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai. The new codeshare flights are scheduled to go on sale with the first travel date starting March 29. This new codeshare agreement provides American customers more convenient choices and greater connectivity when traveling to India.

The codeshare allows American to place its code on fellowoneworld® member and joint business partner, British Airways, flights through London Heathrow Airport. The placement of American’s code on British Airways flights will complement American’s existing service to India through partner airline Jet Airways via Brussels.

In other news, as planned, British replaced its Boeing 767-300 with the larger Boeing 747-400, offering four classes of service, on the London (Heathrow)-Moscow (Domodedovo) route on March 25.
