    And they mentioned AA's JBV is doing good and they are moving forward to the second stage, which is to make it stronger...by strong I hope they didn't mean letting AA "elites" to upgrade on JAL flights :rolleyes:

    it's between france and japan anyway (I think france is a bigger market for japanese than UK is) so BA wont be of as much interest.

    it's not just france though. With the scaled back op in Europe, JAL needs a partner that can provider better flight options to places like AMS. Also, I read somewhere saying the Brazil routes could also be a motivation for JAL too
