As with TWA, I'm not sure if Pan Am would have ended up in any major international alliances for long. Carriers looking for a U.S. partner would have started by looking for one with a strong domestic network, a weak point for PA.

Exactly my thoughts as well.

Another point: Alliances made the FRA hub DL inherited from PA obsolete: DL started codesharing with AF ex CDG and didn´t need their own planes stationned at FRA.
