"Our extensive codeshare relationship with Qatar Airways will provide our customers with easy, premium access when traveling to and from the Middle East and beyond," Kurt Stache, American's Vice President, Strategic Alliances, said in a statement to USA Today. "This new codeshare relationship with Qatar is another example of how American is focused on building its global network through closer coordination with its alliance partners around the world."

This is also good news for American Airlines AAdvantage program members as they can build up miles on flights operated by Qatar Airways.
