This week has turned into a travel-heavy news week...check out the word from Jetblue and American (the oneworld alliance just got better!):
In a move that seems likely to catch many industry observers by surprise, American Airlines announced this morning that it will form an alliance with New York-based JetBlue. The move comes amid increasing competition for the lucrative New York market, where Delta has been expanding during the past year. That has pitted Delta against several airlines with a major presence in the New York market, notably American, JetBlue and Continental.
