JAL prefers to do a similar thing to Alaska does in the US. They are closely linked to airlines in a certain alliance (in both cases, One World) but have the freedom to work with other carriers if they want. It has worked well for both carriers

They are closer to Oneworld
But hey, with Skyteam and so, why join Oneworld now? I think they code-shared with QANTAS too which is a Oneworld member. But AA, definetely. I don't schedules for NRT-HKG are so closely laid out that they seem as though they are competing on it instead of cooperating.
Backfire, so if the pilots association is close, then what happens? Japanese pilots flying AA 777?
