American Airlines will place its code on Qatar’s flights from the United States and major European gateways like London to Doha, and beyond.

American Airlines AAdvantage members will be eligible to earn both elite and redeemable miles on AA coded Qatar Airways flights. It is unclear at this point, if fliers are going to earn miles on Qatar coded flights before the airline has officially joined the Oneworld alliance.

Conclusion

It is interesting to see, what is going to happen with AA’s other partners in the Middle East; Etihad Airways and Gulf Air, now that AA is starting to codeshare with their rival.

This is welcomed news to AA’s frequent fliers that can earn elite and redeemable miles flying on Qatar to Middle East and beyond.
