As EU regulators cast a wary eye on the three-way alliance between American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia, employees of American are beginning to voice their own concerns. Officials from American met with pilots on Thursday to address fears of job cuts and outsourcing, and additional meetings with flight attendants and ground crews may be in the works. Airline executives stress that alliances are needed to boost revenues and attract premium fliers. "To compete and win on the world stage, we must be able to offer customers a level of seamless global connectivity that is impossible for any single airline to deliver on its own," said American spokeswoman Tami McLallen.
