This means more flights between major European cities and Japan, new JAL seats for London travelers, and the opportunity for top frequent fliers to earn points flying on either airline.

British Airways may be facing the breakup of its joint venture with Qantas, but the UK flag-carrier is ready to embark on a new relationship with Japan Airlines.

Earlier this month, JAL and British Airways began offering codeshare flights between Tokyo (both Haneda and Narita airport) and London (Heathrow).

The joint business will now see the two airlines cooperating on all non-stop flights operated by JAL or British Airways between Japan and Europe.
