Is this any different or an update to the application logged end of last year?

AA are already ramping up co operation out of Ireland with EI . Good to see especially on the seasonal DFW route.

It's the same application as the one lodged at the end of last year, they're only reporting it now in the news.

They are? I couldn't find anything on this, other than the JV application.

No real change, as AA was always a interline partner and EI's and AA's systems could issue boarding cards etc, so ticketing was always there, but there are no code shares pend JV approval

EI crew routinely give terminal directions to both AA and UA gates during the pre arrival PA at SFO.

Quite a bit of stuff going on behind the scenes apparently. Going forward I would also see Nett fares which are used by tour operators and consolidators allowing a mix of AA BA EI which will be a great addition rather then just the IATA fares currently. It will give many options on routings and stopovers.

Had half hoped for some EI news this morning on oneworld but no, new rebrand for oneworld plus updates on future benefits if people are interested check out the OW website.

In a further question, Willie expanded on this. 'oneworld connect' is his preferred route because it only requires full commercial integration with three OW partners to go live. Whilst he didn't say this, the transatlantic JV gives him four straight away anyway (BA, AA, Finnair, IB). He feels that little EI would find the complexity of being a full member to be too much.

IT wise BA/AA/IB/AY would require fairly little investment

KLM and AF only just went into PreCheck despite being in a joint venture and alliance with Delta for years.

Don't get your hopes up....
