American Airlines & Qantas may have only just expanded their relationship, but the pair are reportedly already looking at new ways to fly more pax together between Australia and the US.

The two airlines are apparently considering two new trans-Pacific routes over the next five years, Sydney Morning Herald reported.

A submission from Qantas and American Airlines to the United States Department of Transportation highlighted plans for additional routes, however, the destinations were not named.

SMH noted that Qantas’ boss Alan Joyce publicly dropped hints about adding to its operations in Texas with a potential Melbourne-Dallas service – the service would require the carrier’s Boeing 787-9 scheduled for delivery in 2017.

Meanwhile, the submission reportedly also revealed that American Airlines was considering more routes from Oceania to build on its new Sydney-Los Angeles service and forthcoming Auckland-Los Angeles flights.
