Dear JAL Valued Travel Partners:
This is to clarify the condition/restriction of the new code-share flights between JFKÌGRU, JL5010/JL5009 operated by American Airlines (AA951/AA950 respectively).
Please be advised that unlike previous JL016/JL015 Japan Airlines does NOT have any local traffic rights between the United States and Brazil since these flights are operated by AA. Other words, JAL is unable to carry any local passengers between USA (JFK) and Brazil (GRU) using JL5010/JL5009.
*JL5010/JL5009 flights must be used as a connection flight with JL Transpacific flights.
(i.e. NRT (JL006) – JFK (JL5010) – GRU (JL5009) – NRT (JL005) v.v.)
*All JAL published fares between North America and South America have been removed from the GDS system.
We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.
We apologize for the inconveniences.
