American Airlines and JetBlue have today announced that they're moving forward with their previously announced agreement by codesharing on 80 flights out of New York and Boston.

American Airlines is the largest carrier at Miami International Airport and it has now announced a further expansion of its route network out of its south Florida hub. Travelers can expect new non-stop services to South America and Israel as well as two new domestic seasonal routes and increased frequencies to the Caribbean and Latin America.
American Airlines has now released details of two new routes that we were first told about when the airline announced its new and at the time, surprising, partnership with JetBlue in July last year. Back then, the airline could only tell us that a seasonal route between New York and Athens would launch in summer 2021 and that flights between New York and Tel Aviv were planned for some point in the future. We now know a lot more.
From 26 January 2021, travelers wishing to enter the United States will be required to provide evidence of a negative COVID test taken no more than 3 days before their date of departure. In preparation for this rule to come into force, American Airlines has today announced the introduction of a 'Health Passport' for all international travel to the US.
American Airlines is currently running a second week of 'Daily Deals' which, based on the deals we saw last week, is good news for flyers. Today's deal is a sale that runs for a week (that makes it a little different from the other deals we've seen so far) and it's a sale in which you'll find roundtrip Economy Class fares between the US and Europe starting at under $500.
American Airlines is back with a new “Daily Deal” and today the airline is offering 40% off its Main Cabin fares to destinations all across the United States. As this is a daily deal the promotion will expire at midnight tonight Central Time so you only have a few hours to snap up a great fare if you're able to travel right now.
American Airlines has today said that it's following in the footsteps of Alaska Airlines and effectively banning most emotional support animals from its aircraft from next week.
American Airlines has launched a new "Daily Deal" in which it's offering free flights to the Caribbean for kids booked on the same reservations as fare-paying adults. The deal is only available to select Caribbean destinations, you only have approximately eight hours in which to book, and taxes and fees apply but if you're planning an escape from the winter cold, this could be a deal worth considering.
American Airlines has recently made a series of announcements regarding coronavirus testing for destinations like Chile, the Caribbean, and the UK and now it has announced that it will be the first airline to expand access to at-home coronavirus testing for all flights to US locations that have COVID-19 related restrictions, including Puerto Rico.
