The Alliance Coalition, a grouping of pilot unions, was formed on 26 August to represent the interests of around 24,000 pilots possibly affected by the proposed British Airways/American Airlines alliance. This will include sharing collective bargaining agreements and development of a global strategy. Employees of 11 airlines are represented: Aerolineas Argentinas, American, BA, Canadian Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Qantas, LanChile and LOT.
