At a joint event with American Airlines on Tuesday, Air Berlin announced a new nonstop flight from New York to Berlin starting next year, and further clarified their plans with American and OneWorld.
Codeshares with American Airlines are planned as early as November 2010 after regulatory approval. With entry into OneWorld planned for mid 2011, this brings a nice option for American Airlines flyers to get to European destinations without a dreaded transit at Heathrow.
