In what might be the latest sign that TAM is prepping for a switch over to oneworld, TAM announced via their Facebook page that they are moving in with AA (and LAN) at JFK Terminal 8. They’ll join American, American Eagle, Air Berlin, Finnair, Jet Airways, LAN, and Qatar who already run their operations from T8. In other exciting T8 news, British Airways flight 116 (B777) to London will depart from T8 from March 4- 30, while BA executes a redevelopment plan over at T7. American has announced several times over the past few years that they are “exploring co-locating British Airways at JFK Terminal 8 for easier passenger connections to oneworld partners”. However, I wouldn’t expect any move until 2015 at the earliest, which is when BA’s lease on T7 expires. AA would also need to get approval and complete the original build-out plans for T8 in order to accommodate BA.
