US Airways joins venture between American, BA

FORT WORTH, Texas - US Airways is joining the venture that lets American Airlines (AAL) and British Airways work together on setting prices and schedules between the U.S. and Europe.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines Group Inc. said Thursday that US Airways will add 28 trans-Atlantic routes to the joint venture, including nonstop flights from the U.S. to 18 new European destinations.

Airlines involved in the venture, including Finnair and Spain's Iberia, share revenue when they sell seats on each other's flights.

American and US Airways merged in December and plan to phase out the US Airways name.
