    American Airlines to play big role in Qantas' historic Chicago service

    "In an internal memo obtained by the Chicago Business Journal, Franco Tedeschi, American’s regional vice-president in charge of O’Hare Airport (ORD) and its 10,000 AA employees, revealed that American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL) will handle ground operations in Chicago for business partner Qantas.

    What’s more, sources say British Airways mechanics based at O’Hare will handle any maintenance issues that might arise on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner that Qantas will fly on the ORD-BNE route. A, Qantas and British Airways are members of the same OneWorld global airline alliance.

    The new ORD-BNE flight will be the longest ever from Chicago, traversing nearly 9,000 miles in around 17 hours. If successful, the ORD-BNE flight could pave the way for more flights from Chicago to Australia."

    The airlines buy these things like gumdrops at $250 million apiece!
