Press Release Summary: February 06, 2008: Jet Airways, India's premier airline and
American Airlines have launched their codeshare partnership, effective February 06,

benefit of earning JPMiles as they travel on these codeshare flights which would
help enhance their JetPrivilege tier status.

Press Release Body: This is Jet Airways' third codeshare partnership, after its
partnerships with Brussels Airlines and Qantas.

Commenting on this Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, Chief Executive Officer, Jet Airways
said, "With this partnership, Jet Airways and American Airlines will offer their
passengers enhanced connectivity and seamless travel from key Indian cities to

operated flights between New Delhi and Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad,
