Northwest/KLM broke up with Alitalia some time ago. Please, for next time, make sure what you post is actually correct or then write "I assume" or "I think" with it if you're not 100% sure. Thank you.

Just a point of clarification, is the question if airlines are not in one of the major alliances, or any alliance. Technically, AZ is in an alliance with CO in the EWR-FCO/MXP flights. CO is also aligned with NW, AS, HP, CM, etc, but it is not a formalized grouping since as far as I am aware CM is not aligned with AS.
I would find it difficult to find no airline that is not in any bilateral alliance. I'm stating opinion, but airlines like Air Zimbabwe, Ghana Airways, don't seem to be operating in an alliance.

These are all airlines that would probably be candidates for a large-scale alliance like Star, Oneworld, Qualiflyer etc. but have not yet entered or formed one.
Phillipines Air Lines
Royal Air Maroc
None of the Big Three in Mainland China (Air China, China Northern, China Southern)
JAL really needs to join Oneworld now.
David: I think Alaska, AirTran, National etc. will get bought out before they enter a large-scale alliance. Probably even the same thing with TWA!!

Perhaps before you reprimand someone, it is YOU who need to know what the hell you are talking about. Northwest is INDEED allied with Alitalia. I am sure you are referring of KLM's decision to not merge with Alitalia some time back. However, Northwest does indeed still codeshare with Alitalia. And over here in America, Northwest markets itself as "Northwest/KLM," thus my reference to the airline as such. I can provide links to both airline's websites if this will help you.
