American Airlines: “We look forward to continuing to work with JAL as it undertakes its restructuring plan. We are confident that remaining with the oneworld Alliance provides the least risk for JAL, the greatest chance to win U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) approval of an antitrust immunity application, and offers the most long-term financial benefits. There has been significant discussion about JAL making the right alliance decision because it is in Japan’s national interest and will benefit the Japanese consumer, and we agree", Craig Kreeger, Senior VP International.
