American Airlines Uses Partnerships to Grow Its Network, Offer Customers More Choice, and Provide a Premier Travel Experience in the NortheastWednesday, April 21, 2021, 10:00

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines and JetBlue are making it easy for customers to return to travel while continuing to deliver on the promise of growth and customer choice as a result of their Northeast Alliance.
  • Beginning Oct. 31, American is adding new service from New York (JFK) to New Delhi (DEL) and will offer customers the fastest growing network from the United States to India than any other airline partnership program.
  • New York and Boston will see significant growth with new nonstop service and additional codeshare routes as a result of the Northeast Alliance with JetBlue.
  • Customers will have a premier customer experience when traveling in the Northeast with the fastest secure side connecter at JFK and an industry-leading product.
  • Expansion of the airline’s network will provide better global connectivity for growing markets like Austin, Texas, and Nashville, Tennessee, for customers who are ready to travel.


“Our global partnerships are designed to grow our network to benefit our customers, team members, and investors,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Since the inception of our partnership with JetBlue, we have committed to offering customers more flights, more destinations and a better experience when traveling. We’re proud to deliver on those promises for our customers, not just in the Northeast, but throughout the entire American Airlines network, who now have greater access to the world.”

“With the Northeast Alliance, we are finally able to give our customers in New York and Boston what they’ve been asking for years — more JetBlue service and more JetBlue low fares,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning for JetBlue.

Fastest growing network to India

Beginning Oct. 31, American will launch nonstop service from New York (JFK) to New Delhi (DEL) on a Boeing 777-200 to meet the strong local demand. With its Qatar Airways partnership and previously announced Seattle (SEA) to Bengaluru, India (BLR), route, American will offer customers more ways to fly between the United States and India than any other airline partnership. Flights to New Delhi will conveniently connect customers to India’s capital territory three times per week, and then daily during the holiday peak from Nov. 17 to Jan. 3.

More service from Boston and New York

American intends to introduce new service from Boston (BOS) to Cincinnati (CVG), St. Louis (STL) and Toronto (YYZ) as part of its effort within the Northeast Alliance to provide additional options for customers in the Northeast. The airline will also operate all flights to Los Angeles (LAX) on its signature Airbus A321T aircraft beginning Nov. 2. Under the Northeast Alliance, American and JetBlue will serve 46 of the top 50 markets from Boston, making it easier to get to the places that matter the most as customers begin to embrace travel again.

The Northeast Alliance will also enable new service from New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA), as both carriers intend to introduce the following markets:

American JetBlue Houston (IAH) Jacksonville, Florida (JAX
Oklahoma City (OKC) Nashville, Tennessee (BNA)
Omaha, Nebraska (OMA) New Orleans (MSY), Portland, Maine (PWM) Sarasota, Florida (SRQ) Savannah, Georgia (SAV)

With these additions, American and JetBlue will offer more service between New York and Florida than any other carrier.

American and JetBlue launched their first codeshare flights in February, and the list continues to grow with 39 more flights available for purchase on either aa.com or JetBlue.com starting May 3. JetBlue will place its code on 24 more American flights while American will place its code on 15 JetBlue flights. Customers can look forward to more choices from the Northeast, including the best schedule pattern on flights between BOS and Washington, D.C. (DCA) and flights from the Northeast to the West Coast.

Eager travelers in the Northeast will have a bright summer, including the launch of long-haul international flights from JFK to Athens, Greece (ATH), beginning June 3 and from JFK to Tel Aviv, Israel (TLV), beginning May 6, which were previously announced in conjunction with the Northeast Alliance.

Offering the best product for customers

Thanks to newer aircraft and a seamless connection between Terminal 5 and Terminal 8 at JFK, customers from the Northeast can look forward to an easier and more convenient journey.

Premium product to Los Angeles

When traveling between Boston and Los Angeles, whether on JetBlue or American, the Northeast Alliance enables the most flights to choose from, access to a premium experience with all lie-flat seats, and entertainment on state-of-the-art aircraft. The A321T has been the standard of comfort on American’s flights between JFK and LAX as well as between JFK and San Francisco (SFO), offering first and business class. That level of comfort will now extend to all flights between LAX and BOS.

Larger aircraft with dual-class service

Just in time for summer travel, and as the Northeast Alliance enables more growth for American in New York, American plans to remove 50-seat regional aircraft from New York and Washington, D.C. As a result, every flight on American from JFK, LGA and DCA will be operated with aircraft that feature at least two classes of service.

Easy connections

Northeast Alliance customers flying in and out of JFK connecting on codeshare flights can also look forward to customer-friendly and easy transfers between JetBlue’s Terminal 5 and American’s Terminal 8 when secure-side transportation launches this summer.

More choices from more cities

American’s growing global partnerships benefit customers across the United States. Customers in rapidly growing cities and key business markets such as Austin; Nashville; Raleigh, North Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Cleveland; Cincinnati; Memphis, Tennessee; and Indianapolis now have more ways to connect to the world through American’s flights and its partnerships with JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines.

Through American’s AAdvantage® program, customers in these cities can earn miles, redeem miles and receive upgrades and other global benefits only made possible through American’s loyalty program. In the coming months, more details will be revealed about enhancements to American’s AAdvantage and JetBlue’s TrueBlue frequent flyer programs that will help customers unlock these benefits with even more ease.

Should be interesting. Historically, AA's attempts to add routes to India have been... less than successful...

Do US citizens still need a Visa to visit India? That's always been a bit of hassle (ie roadblock) for me....

I needed one when I visited a few years ago, but it was all electronic/online. Of course it was a big mess at immigration, I think there were 3 desks for electronic/online. If you can get the sticker kind in your passport it will save at least an hour, but probably not worth it in the grand scheme of things, unless there is a consulate close to where you live.

AA is going to need more wide body lift on ultra long range runs like these. One flight per direction per aircraft.

AA who tried ORD-DEL in the past and they couldn't have enough profitable. The seats availability is zeros out. This route is no longer served.

Iirc you can get a permit online.

Caveat: You had better fit every “I”, cross every “t”. I had friends who secured SFO-HKG-DEL return Business award tickets using Cathay Pacific. She had one minor problem that got by docs check at San Francisco and Hongkers, and could have easily been corrected on arrival at DEL. She was detained, had her passport confiscated and was escorted to the departing CX flight to Hong Kong, where she was escorted to the next flight to SFO, where she was given her passport by the purser on arrival. Needless to say, her tour and the money she paid for it was lost as well.

On a 772 none the less.. interesting. I used to take the ORD/DEL flight back in the day.. it was a long one.

Glad to see OKC get JFK. I hope we get MIA back as well - was an easy upgrade on a 175 which made for great trips.

AA still has orders for 787-8 and -9 being filled.

787-8, 23 in service and 14 remaining to be delivered. There will be 20 788 with Zodiac, the remainder with Super Diamond seating.

787-9, 22 delivered and 30 on order. Some will replace older 772s.

AA has 20 77W / 777-323ER and 47 772 / 777-223ER.

I think an interesting part of this will be having 321T (and Mint) service between LAX and BOS.

I hope BOM is next. UA has good timings on India flights(for those that end in BOM or DEL). I'm guessing AA timings will be similar

BOS-YYZ and BOS-CVG came out of left field. I'm guessing that it made more sense for AA to operate those routes than B6, given the smaller E175 and that YYZ is an existing station for AA.

My expectation is that there won't be much F demand on the A321T from BOS-LAX, so there might be a lot of J to F cabin rolls. I suspect the reason (in addition to offering a similar product on the route to B6) is because the 777s have displaced a lot of A321Ts from JFK-LAX and BOS-LAX was the route it made the most sense to fly them on.

Shame for us at PHL that we're getting literally nothing out of this partnership (not like we were ever intended to really be a part of it, but still) and if anything it's just going to hurt us. That aside, I still think this whole partnership is ultimately a poor strategic choice for AA...

agree.

i miss the days where AA had a non stop on something decent like the 757 BOS-SFO but at least B6 is also on that these days!
