Northwest Airlines pilots raise concerns over proposed alliance.
Northwest Airlines' pilots are reportedly concerned that the carrier's proposed alliance with Delta Air Lines and Continental Airlines could result in further job losses.
The carrier's 6,000 pilots - represented by the Air Line Pilots Association - reportedly want to make sure that the proposed alliance will not damage job security, income and work rules, if approved by the US Department of Transportation (DoT).
Earlier this month, the DoT extended its investigation into the codesharing alliance, thus pushing the deadline for a ruling back for the third time to late December, The Associated Press reported.
