American Airlines and Continental Airlines have introduced interline electronic ticketing, allowing customers to use a single electronic ticket when their itineraries include travel on both carriers.
Customers with e-tickets also may be rebooked between American and Continental flights - if the need arises—without having to obtain a paper ticket first. Interline e-tickets can be issued by American and Continental through their respective reservation centers, airports and ticket offices.
More than 70% of Continental`s customers and more than 65% of the tickets used by American customers traveling in the U.S. are electronic.
