FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines and India's leading carrier Kingfisher Airlines announced today they will enter into a comprehensive codeshare and frequent flyer relationship starting in 2011, subject to regulatory approvals. Kingfisher Airlines is a member-elect of the world's leading quality airline alliance, oneworld®, of which American is a founding member.

The initial phase of the codeshare relationship announced today will allow American to place its AA* code on Kingfisher Airlines extensive domestic network beyond Delhi. American will also codeshare on Kingfisher Airlines flights from London Heathrow to both Delhi and Mumbai. American operates daily nonstop service between Delhi and Chicago O'Hare and Kingfisher Airlines will place its IT* code on those flights as well as on selected American flights between the United States and London Heathrow.

Members of American's AAdvantage® and Kingfisher Airlines King Club frequent flyer programs will be able to earn miles on the codeshare flights. The two airlines are exploring a more comprehensive frequent flyer agreement that will include the ability to earn and redeem miles across each carrier's network.

"We are very pleased to announce our codeshare partnership with Kingfisher, an airline that offers our customers the choice of flying to more cities throughout India and a more convenient travel experience," said Virasb Vahidi, American's Chief Commercial Officer. "We look forward to strengthening further our partnership as Kingfisher completes the process of joining the oneworld alliance."

"I am delighted that Kingfisher Airlines has entered into a codeshare and frequent flyer relationship with American Airlines. The codeshare on American's flight to Chicago will mark the first time ever that Kingfisher Airlines will place its code on any flight operating into the United States. This, coupled with the frequent flyer relationship, will mean that Kingfisher Airlines guests will be able to benefit from seamless travel on the routes covered by the codeshare," said Manoj Chacko, Executive Vice President – Commercial, Kingfisher Airlines Limited.

American is currently celebrating the fifth anniversary of its daily service between Delhi and Chicago O'Hare. This past August, American moved its Delhi operations into the brand new, world-class Terminal Three at Indira Gandhi International Airport where Kingfisher Airlines is also located. This helps to provide seamless connectivity for passengers transferring between the two airlines' flights. Also located in Delhi's Terminal Three is Kingfisher Airlines prestigious new premium lounge which will be available to eligible American Airlines passengers.

    • YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea - North Korea warned Friday that U.S.-South Korean plans for military maneuvers put the peninsula on the brink of war, and appeared to launch its own artillery drills within sight of an island it showered with a deadly barrage this week.
    • The fresh artillery blasts were especially defiant because they came as the U.S. commander in South Korea, Gen. Walter Sharp, toured the South Korean island to survey damage from Tuesday's hail of North Korean artillery fire that killed four people.
    • None of the latest rounds hit the South's territory, and U.S. military officials said Sharp did not even hear the concussions, though residents on other parts of the island panicked and ran back to the air raid shelters where they huddled earlier in the week as white smoke rose from North Korean territory.

            • The Jets' Mr. Everything sparked New York to its second-best start after scoring on an 89-yard kickoff return - during which a cleat slipped off - and also had a 53-yard touchdown run in a 26-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

                • In his five years as Iraq's president, Jalal Talabani has shown a remarkable ability to rise above the ethnic and religious divisions defining the country's political scene - sometimes at the expense of his own Kurdish identity.
                • But in rejecting the death sentence against Aziz - a Christian who was Saddam's longtime foreign minister - Talabani offered Iraq's small Christian minority a significant goodwill gesture at a time of deep uncertainty over its future in the wake of deadly attacks since 2003.
                • In polarized Iraq, most politicians press an unflinching sectarian or ethnic line - whether Sunni, Shiite or Kurdish - in a zero-sum game where another sect's win is often seen as your sect's loss.

                    • Environmental groups say that shows the Obama administration has done little to improve on what they consider a dismal record on endangered species under President George W. Bush.
