Introduction

The "Wings" alliance as such does not yet exist as a brand-name. The coming-to-be of "Wings" depends on developments with KLM and a possible new alliance partner at this time. The participants here seem to be in no big hurry to invest big sums in "Wings" name development, even though a "Wings Pilots' Union" already exists.

Slogan

no alliance slogan yet; KLM/Northwest's one is "Worldwide reliability".
