I know that it looks like I've been beating this drum a lot lately. I just am curious how this affects other people in the counrty, if not the world. In the NE, it is almost inconcevable that there might not be any more US Airways. I realize that the whole US aspect has been talked to death here. I was wondering what happens after(if and only if you assume what I currently do) in the aviation world. Do you see dramatic differences where US was?

I think that if/when US goes under (which would be after selling assets) a lot of other major carriers (UA,NW,AA,CO,DL) would step in and pick up the most profitable assets (PHL, 'Buses, regionals, EMB's) and start/add service to most of the cities US served. Because they are so East Coast centered, they are really flying in a very competive market; so there aren't a lot of cities that would lose all air service. But, it would make the market a bit smaller.

I think that UA would step in and make it a pretty seamless transition. I don't think that loosing US would make much of a difference to passengers after just a few months to transition. This is coming soon and I hope all goes well and the employees of US can get into new jobs ASAP.

People couldn't imagine a world without Pan Am. Or Eastern. Or TWA.

It happens. Other carriers move in to pick up the slack.

Outside the NE US, most of the world wouldn't notice the difference.

Then again, it hasn't happened yet (US Airways), and remember that it is incredibly hard to kill an airline.

Does anybody think that the airports like CLT, PHL, and DCA will go through a lot of financial trouble until they find a replacement for the lost capacity? Is this even feasible as far as replacing the lost capacity?
