American and Mexicana Launch Interline

American Airlines
and Mexicana Airlines have launched interline electronic ticketing.
Customers can use a single electronic ticket (e-ticket) when their
itineraries include travel on American and Mexicana. The airlines began
offering codeshare flights between Mexico and the United States last May,
providing American Airlines customers with access to 30 destinations with
Mexicana in the Mexican Republic. Passengers that fly with Mexicana can
reach 51 cities in the United States. Passengers with e-tickets have the ability to rebook between American
Airlines and Mexicana without first having to obtain a paper ticket before
transferring between carriers. Interline e-tickets can be issued by
American and Mexicana through their respective reservation centers, and at
airport locations, ticket offices and travel agencies.

American Airlines now offers interline e-ticketing convenience with 23
carriers, including most of the larger U.S. airlines—Alaska Airlines,
America West Airlines, American Trans Air, Aloha Airlines, Continental
Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Midwest Airlines, Northwest
Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways. American also has interline e-
ticketing agreements with all seven of its oneworld Alliance partners—
Aer Lingus, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, LanChile and
Qantas. American also has interline e-ticketing agreements with KLM and
Copa Airlines.

More than 90 percent of all American Airlines customers today travel on
electronic tickets, thus avoiding lines at the airport. E-tickets are the
key to using American’s growing array of automated services, including the
Flight Check-In(SM) feature on, AA Curbside Check-In and the more
than 700 AA Self-Service Check-In(SM) machines provided at more than 85
airports. E- tickets cannot be lost or stolen and they make changes and
refunds easier. Interline electronic ticketing enables easier transfer
between carriers should a change of airline be necessary due to weather or
other delays.
