Airline agreement…

DEALTALK-Rival mergers put new pressure on American Airlines

USA/JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines also could be good fits for American Airlines and might be on its M&A radar, analysts and bankers have said.

American entered a code-share agreement with JetBlue this year allowing passengers to connect with one ticket to American’s international flights from New York and Boston.

I am a pilot with AA and I would like to point out that the quote from this article is a misrepresentation of what the “partnership” is between Jet Blue and American Airlines.

They are not “code sharing”. Their relationship consists of an “interline agreement” and that is much different than what the article states. Please adjust the article with a correction.
