    Je cherche le traduction de cette phrase:

    ''la situation est celle d'une compagnie intégrée à une major et à une alliance.''

    (l'article (dans le domaine de gestion) parle d'une compagnie aérienne et sa situation, ses activités etc)

    What is confusing me is how to treat ''intégrée à une major et à une alliance''
    so far I have:

    ''the situation is that of a company integrated with .... lol, i really have no idea... and with a partnership...?

    Any help would be appreciated! thank you!

    In this case "major" is already the english word.

    A Major is a very big international company (or group of companies).

    eg: Universal for music labels

    Pour ce qui est de traduire "alliance", dans le contexte commercial, une expression est devenue très à la mode ces dernières années : joint venture...

    That's true in general, but in this case airlines are involved.

    An airline alliance is an agreement between two or more airlines to cooperate on a substantial level. The three largest alliances are the Star Alliance, SkyTeam and Oneworld. Alliances also form between cargo airlines, such as that of WOW Alliance, SkyTeam Cargo and ANA/UPS Alliance. Alliances provide a network of connectivity and convenience for international passengers and international packages.
