Following further rumuors that Iberia have reached an agreement to merge with British Airways for 3.5 euros per share, I was curious to know of opinions on Airliners.Net with regards to their fleet, route and market position compatibility. Basically, would/will they make a good merge?

I think Iberia would complement BA perfectly, particularly as it has a strong South American network which BA does not. Other than on UK-Spain routes there is no overlap so sounds like a marriage made in heaven!

If this merger were to get the go-ahead where would that leave the other 'traditional' European carriers such as Alitalia, LH, Olympic, TAP etc. I guess some of these would have to work closer with one another or ultimately merge to stay competitive or else fall foul to the low cost carriers.
