Carriers explore alliances

May 01, 2008|From Times Wire Services

British Airways said it was considering new ways of cooperating with AMR Corp.'s American Airlines and Continental Airlines Inc.

U.S. airlines have been scrambling to combine or form new alliances since Delta Air Lines Inc. and Northwest Airlines Corp. announced plans to merge this month.

Continental said over the weekend that it would not pursue an alliance with another carrier right away, a surprising move after weeks of speculation that it would join with UAL Corp.'s United Airlines to create the world's biggest airline.
