Trans-Pacific Joint Business Agreement
In February 2010, American Airlines and Japan Airlines (JAL) filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for antitrust immunity to create a closer relationship and a joint business agreement governing the operation of their flights between North America and Asia.
On October 6, 2010, the DOT granted the two airlines tentative antitrust immunity approval and permission to operate a joint business across the Pacific.
Today, American and JAL coordinate fares, services and schedules, offer customers reciprocal frequent flyer benefits and grant eligible customers access to the airport lounges of both airlines.
Trans-Atlantic Joint Business Agreement
On July 20, 2010, American, British Airways and Iberia received approval from the DOT to create a joint business governing flights between North America and Europe. As a result of the antitrust immunity, they expanded their global cooperation.
Finnair joined the partnership in 2013 and Philadelphia (PHL) and Charlotte (CLT) became the largest East Coast gateways to Europe; giving customers access to more than 100 destinations throughout North America with one-stop connections.
With combined operations, the joint business serves 29 destinations in North America and 25 destinations in Europe, operating nearly 100 routes between the two regions.
Trans-Pacific Joint Business Agreement
In July 2019, American Airlines and Qantas received approval from the DOT to create a joint business governing flights between the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

With combined operations, the joint business expands the codeshare relationship with enhanced service, better schedules, additional loyalty benefits and continued investments in lounges, bag systems and other infrastructure.
