I’ve been gone for few days (the holidays and all) but it’s been a slow news week on the AAdvantage milage front.

The joint business agreement that American, BA and Iberia announced back in the fall has been expanded now to include 57 new British Airways and 2 Iberia flights as American Airlines codeshare flights. What this means is that these flights will now be listed as American fights when you book travel, so you’ll earn 100% of the AAdvantage miles that you’d normally earn as well as full Elite Qualifying Miles.

Here’s a look at the new AA codeshare routes:
