American Airlines and JetBlue Announce Strategic Partnership

The new partnership will allow the airlines to sell seats on each other’s planes and let passengers earn and burn frequent flyer miles. The move will allow the airlines to capture more market share in New York and Boston in a time when competition is high and any competitive advantage could have long lasting effects on the industry. This is also a shrewd move from American, which formed a similar partnership with Alaska Air earlier this year, and provides AA with a stronghold on both the east and west coasts.

What are your thoughts on the new partnership? How will it affect your business travel plans or loyalty programs?

    Sign me up. If I can earn AA miles on B9 flights I'll take it.

    No details about the loyalty bennies on either side though. I guess that's still on the way. Plus B9 runs maybe 3 routes out of ORD. :/
