JAL to snatch Garuda Indonesia code-share pact away from ANA

Carriers eye possible joint venture as they target business travel demand

JAL's offer to share codes on routes to the U.S. is thought to have encouraged Garuda to switch allegiances.

TOKYO/JAKARTA -- Japan Airlines and Garuda Indonesia, which is currently partnered with JAL rival All Nippon Airways, are poised to enter into a code-sharing arrangement that could lead to a joint venture, according to sources.

JAL and Garuda are working on the details and are set to finalize the agreement in September, before starting code-share flights between Japan and Indonesia in October.
