exodus

Here is my best explanation:

'flight' is the definition.
(exodus is a kind of flight)

'former partner raised fare to go on american' is the wordplay.
'former partner' becomes 'ex'.
'raised' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'fare' becomes 'do' ('do' can be a synonym of 'fare').
'to go on' says to put letters next to each other (in a down clue, some letters go on top of others).
'american' becomes 'us'.
'do' reversed gives 'od'.
'ex'+'od'+'us'='EXODUS'
