JAL and Cathay Pacific extends codesharing agreement to cover entire Japan-Hong Kong network

Japan Airlines (JAL) and Cathay Pacific (CX) finally found a way to work together as a partner!!! Until now, JAL and CX sees each other more as a competitor than a partner. Before JAL joined oneworld, you can't even earn JMB miles on CX's flights between HKG and Tokyo. According to the press release, this is only the first step JAL will take to improve JAL's network in Asia with the help of CX. Further announcements will come when they have reached more agreements.

Currently, JAL only codeshares with CX on 3 daily flights: NGO-HKG, KIX-HKG, FUK-HKG (via TPE). From October 31 2010, it will extends to all 18 flights between Hong Kong and Japan operated by both airlines (2 daily by JAL and 16 daily by CX). New codeshare routes include CTS-HKG, HND-HKG, NRT-HKG, NRT-HKG (via TPE), KIX-HKG (via TPE), NGO-HKG. However JAL hasn't set a date for when reservations will be accepted on these codeshare flights. Below are the detail schedules of the flights.
