    Interesting... In Australia they moved their relationship away from Qantas, and to Virgin Blue/Australia

    I would love the ability to redeem for premium cabin Etihad - would be a really nice add

    Indeed. Their F definitely looks world class. I wonder how hard award availability might be. Anyone have current experience obtaining F awards on them?

    Another + is booking an AA codeshare allows one use of Etihad Chauffeur.

    Interesting indeed, I rather thought that with the UA/CO relationship with Emirates ending, that an Emirates-AA linkup could be on the horizon. EK could use a US partner. Surprised to see Etihad.

    For me this isn't big news until they start allowing earning on the flight regardless of code share. The AA coded flights are much more expensive (isn't that always the case lately with aa)
