Kingfisher Airlines and American Airlines (NYSE:AMR) , both members of the Oneworld alliance, will begin their codeshare and frequent flyer arrangement in 2011, the two airlines have announced.

The codeshare pact they signed on Tuesday, when cleared by the regulators, will allow American's ‘AA' code on Kingfisher Airlines' domestic network; Kingfisher can have its ‘IT' code on American Airlines' daily non-stop Delhi-Chicago flight and on selected AA routes between the US and London's Heathrow.

AA will also codeshare on Kingfisher flights from London Heathrow to Delhi and Mumbai. As part of the 12-airline Oneworld alliance since July this year, Kingfisher gets to share code with the other members, starting with its first partner British Airways.

Frequent flyer programme

Mr Manoj Chacko, Kingfisher's Executive Vice-President-Commercial, said, “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 benefit from seamless travel on the routes covered by the codeshare.”

Members of American's AAdvantage and Kingfisher's King Club frequent flyer programmes 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,” said a Kingfisher release. The codeshare partnership with Kingfisher “offers our customers the choice of flying to more cities throughout India and a more convenient travel experience,” said Mr Virasb Vahidi, American's Chief Commercial Officer. “We look forward to strengthening our partnership further as Kingfisher completes the process of joining the Oneworld alliance.”

American Air is currently celebrating the fifth year of its daily service between New Delhi and Chicago. In August, the airline moved its New Delhi operations into the new Terminal 3 at the Indira Gandhi International Airport where Kingfisher is also located. BOARD MEET

In a separate communication Kingfisher said its board would meet on Thursday, November 25, to consider issue of convertible and/or redeemable securities to the consortium of lenders (pursuant to a debt recast package,) the promoter group, their PACs and/or other investors.

                    • 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.

                    • 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.
