The AA - HU partnership and code sharing between US and China and connecting flights in China began 7 Dec 2011.
Flying on Hainan Airlines / HU will not earn AAdvantage miles unless one is flying an AA codeshare operated by HU.

American Airlines - Hainan Airlines Codeshare Service link

American Airlines codeshares on Hainan Airlines flights between the United States and China, plus connecting flights within China.

Airport Connections
Beijing - Terminal 1

- Terminal 2 (international arrivals and departures)
Seattle – South Satellite Terminal

Additional Information: For additional information not listed above, go to www.hainanair.us
You may need to connect to / from AA to book an AA codeshare on HU; codeshare fare classes may be in higher classes than one can book on HU, and may cost significantly more than booking as HU in some cases.

From TheStreet, courtesy of Lomapaseo:

The key elements of the American-Hainan agreement are:
  • Codesharing (AA*) on direct flights operated by Hainan beyond Beijing that will allow customers on American's Chicago- Beijing flights to make connections to cities within China.
  • Codesharing (AA*) on direct flights operated by Hainan between Beijing and Seattle.
  • Codesharing (HU*) on direct flights operated by American beyond Seattle that will allow customers on Hainan's Beijing- Seattle flights access to American's domestic network.
  • Codesharing (HU*) on direct flights operated by American between Shanghai and Chicago/ Los Angeles and between Beijing and Chicago.
  • Improvement in flight schedules and connection times to benefit customers of both airlines.
  • Increased opportunities for customers of each airline to earn and redeem frequent flyer miles/points on services operated by the other.

This quote may be more important, sounds like there will be another new AAdvantage participating airline.

Not a new member of OW? No status on Hainan Airlines for me then.

This is good news and hopefully progress toward HU eventually joining OW. …I know a lot of folks are of the opinion that CX wouldn’t stand for it. Time will time.

Does this mean that one will be able to earn Aadvantage miles by flying HU but not able to redeem aadvantage miles for HU? What's the situation with EVA?

According to the press release linked to above, you may be pleased - and able to earn and burn on Hainan. I known the couple of flights I have taken on HU were quite satisfactory - this is indeed good news, and we can hope the first step to "oneworldliness" .

"The key elements of the American-Hainan agreement are:
  • Codesharing (AA*) on direct flights operated by Hainan beyond Beijing that will allow customers on American's Chicago-Beijing flights to make connections to cities within China.

  • Codesharing (AA*) on direct flights operated by Hainan between Beijing and Seattle.

  • Codesharing (HU*) on direct flights operated by American beyond Seattle that will allow customers on Hainan's Beijing-Seattle flights access to American's domestic network.

  • Codesharing (HU*) on direct flights operated by American between Shanghai and Chicago/Los Angeles and between Beijing and Chicago.

  • Improvement in flight schedules and connection times to benefit customers of both airlines.

  • Increased opportunities for customers of each airline to earn and redeem frequent flyer miles/points on services operated by the other."
(My emphasis)

Five star SkyTrax rating (the only one for a China-based airline), already codesharing with Malév, Air Berlin codeshares announced... photos of the Business A330 cabin here.

For EVA you can only earn miles by flying the AA codeshare. No burning of miles on them either.

The addition of a mainland Chinese carrier into AA's partners is a big plus. ^

Hainan is a fairly large airline with 90 aircraft including 3 767-300s, 9 A330s, 3
A340s and 75 737s (62 are 737-800s). They also have a 737-800 and an A340 on order. Certainly far larger than the 22 plane Malev fleet!

It will be interesting to see the details of this. Will it be domestic Chinese flights only when originated from the US or perhaps a booking code requirement like Cathay...

Oh wow, this is great news. Finally, I have a mainland carrier I can potentially use again...
