January 13, 2014, AA and USAir announce access to the combined company’s network for travel beginning on January 23, 2014 through codeshare. 

"This codeshare marks another step toward providing more convenient travel choices for customers, including service to more destinations, improved schedule options and a truly global network," said Scott Kirby, president – American Airlines. "Implementing this codeshare so early in the integration process allows us to begin realizing significant revenue synergies, which are estimated to exceed $1 billion annually by 2015."

The first phase of the codeshare will cover only select American and US Airways flights and includes placing:

  • The US Airways code on most American-operated flights between American's hubs in Chicago,Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami and New York (JFK), and US Airways hubs in Charlotte,Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. (DCA).
  • The American code on most US Airways-operated flights between US Airways' hubs in Charlotte,Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. (DCA), and American's hubs in Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami and New York (JFK).
  • The American code on US Airways' East Coast Shuttle service, which includes flights betweenBoston, New York (LGA) and Washington, D.C. (DCA).
  • The US Airways code on select American domestic flights from Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth, providing US Airways customers immediate access to small- and medium-size destinations currently served by American but not US Airways.
  • The American and US Airways code on select international flights operated by the other carrier. 

As mentioned in a previous article, customers can find more detailed information on the Find Your Way website, aa.com/findyourway and usairways.com/findyourway, which offers key day-of-travel information and will be available throughout the merger integration process. 

As the merger progresses, we will continue to watch and see how the changes unfold.
