AA to Launch New Service Between Continental US and Haneda
AA will begin its service in February, 2011 from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, and from Haneda.
With the New York - Haneda service, AA will be the only airline to serve both Narita and Haneda Airports from New York, while the oneworld alliance will have more flights between the US and Haneda than any other alliance.
In addition to its new service to Haneda, AA will continue to provide service to Tokyo's Narita Airport from New York-JFK, Chicago, Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth. These AA cornerstone markets are also some of the most traveled US - Japan markets.
Passengers traveling to or from one of these AA cornerstone markets represent approximately 43 percent of the Continental US - Tokyo traffic.
Japan Airlines will code-share on AA's New York - Haneda flight and also serves the New York - Tokyo market via Narita, and together, the two airlines will provide a choice of three daily round-trip flights for customers traveling between New York and Tokyo.
In addition, Japan Airlines also offers service to Narita from Los Angeles, Chicago and Honolulu and to Haneda from San Francisco and Honolulu. AA markets and code-shares on these Japan Airlines flights.
AA also revealed that it will offer triple AAdvantage miles for first and business class travel and double AAdvantage miles for economy class travel on AA's new JFK - Haneda route through May 31, 2011.
Virasb Vahidi, chief commercial officer at AA, said: â€œNew York and Tokyo are the economic engines of the US and Japan, and the principal network gateways of AA and Japan Airlines. Open Skies between the US and Japan will stimulate both national economies, enable us to bring more service benefits to our customers, and promote cross-cultural exchanges.â€
Can AA enhance customer satisfaction with the new service?
