Dear JAL Valued Travel Partners:
From March 27, 2011, the flight numbers of all Japan Airlines (JAL) flights operated by our oneworld airline partners will change from the current JL5000 series flight numbers to JL7000 series flight numbers.
We will begin this process by changing all codeshare flights operated by American Airlines in our system according to the following schedule:
[Effective Date] // [Applicable Flights]
November 25, 2010 (THU) // JL5001 – 5617 (Old flight numbers)
November 26, 2010 (FRI) // JL5618 – 5997 (Old flight numbers)
*Due to discrepancy in SKDL, GDS users may experience reservation/ticketing troubles for up to one week after these changes are made.
*Flight numbers for codeshare flights operated by oneworld carriers other than American Airlines are expected to be changed to JL7000 series flights on December 2nd or 3rd. Further details will be advised later.
