Etihad / American Partnership

Etihad / American Partnership

  1. Nicola

    Back in the days, although the relationship between American and Gulf airlines was already rough, Etihad enjoyed a partnership with AA. I knew this ended the day AA removed the code sharing for the Abu Dhabi / Dallas route which had ended in March last year if I properly recall. Now, after the relationship went south, still on Etihad website AA logo appears as a partner. How come?

    My question is because I am commuting frequently between the UAE and Dallas and that was a good bargain and was hopeful that such relationship went back some days. EK business is unaffordable and right now I’m routing through London instead on PE. But direct flight Abu Dhabi – Dallas I would love to take it back. Any clue?

    I think they just reduced their level of partnership, but didnt fully end it. They’re still partners in the sense that you can earn and redeem on either carrier. You should still be able to buy a ticket with flights on both carriers.

    Thanks for your response David. I am still unsure why to cut half a tie and not fully and what gain has AA in doing so since they can now fly to the Gulf only through BA.

    OTA’s should still be able to book you flights on AA, connecting to Etihad on a single ticket and you’d earn AA miles for all segments, though apparently you no longer earn elite qualifying miles/segments/dollars

    I guess they have their own reason to make half wars. For a consumer makes no sense. Alliances always bring benefits to some extent. The strike back of AA on Etihad seemed more a revenge rather than making its own interests.

    EY offered quite a bit of South Asia connectivity through Jet. Might not be a selling point any more though.
