In response to the news, American Airlines CEO stated, “We’re excited to deepen our strategic alliance with Qatar Airways alongside the launch of our new service between New York and Doha, giving American’s customers more choices and convenient access to the Middle East and beyond.”


This is also a huge benefit for Qatar Airways, as passengers flying from Doha to the United States can connect to 250+ cities served by American. His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive of the Qatar Airways Group, is excited about this prospect, stating, "We are thrilled to build on our relationship with our fellow Oneworld partner to provide passengers with the reliable, safe and award-winning service that they have come to know and expect from Qatar Airways.”
