    Kyodo News and  NHK, the  Japan Broadcasting Corporation, are reporting that Delta is in talks with Japan Airlines about making a big investment in the Japanese carrier and cooperation on international operations.

    From Kyodo News:

    Struggling Japan Airlines Corp. is considering receiving capital investments from Delta Air Lines Inc. and forming a business tie-up on international operations with the U.S. and world's largest airline, industry sources said Friday.

    Japan's largest airline is also sounding out Air France-KLM Group, a major European airline, on expanding its alliance in deals that could form the pillar of JAL's restructuring program and dramatically alter the makeup of the global airline industry.
