»»BA and JAL Start Codesharing on Routes Between London and Tokyo

British Airways and Japan Airlines have started London-Tokyo codeshare flights.
Both airlines, members of the oneworld alliance, will market each other’s services between London and Tokyo.

Also, aligned fares applicable for flights operated by British Airways and Japan Airlines on the routes between Tokyo and London, originating from either city, will be available from both airlines.

That will give passengers more flight options. They will be able to use a combination of BA and JAL in a single round-trip, choosing the itinerary that better suits their needs — i.e. BA one-way and JAL the other, or viceversa.

Reservations for the new codeshare flights will be possible starting from September 5, 2012, for travel from October 1st, 2012.
Aligned fares will also be offered starting from the same date.
