American and TAM Launch Codeshare
American Airlines and the Brazilian-based carrier TAM Airlines launched a codeshare agreement, through which each company will be able to sell, on a single ticket, certain flights on the other carrier. Beginning Thursday, frequent flyers of either airline will be able to earn miles or points when traveling with the other. American Airlines customers now can reach eight new Brazilian destinations, while TAM travelers gain access to 25 U.S. cities. TAM is slated to join the Oneworld Alliance, of which American already is a member, in 2014.
