I think ATA will be sold at about 50%, with ATA keeping IND and military charter.
I think US will probably sell of a couple of it's regional partners. I think the remaining US will be taken over by an investor group and the current management de-throned. Expent US to revert back to all-Boeing. Look for the 777 & 787. I would expect to see US mainline, MidAtlantic, and PSA remain. Allehany, Piedmont will be lost. Significant cut back in destiantions, but retention of CLT and PHL as hubs.. LGA and DCA will remain as focus. BOS, PIT, and FLL will be dropped. MidAtlantic will increase from 22 E170 to probably 100 E170 & 50 E190. Mesa will be downsized as a partner, as will Chautauqua and TransStates. I would think more international destiantions from CLT and PHL, like CO is doing.
I think DH may be smaller and struggling but working on it's market. I would expect to see some stations dropped completely. Look for 2nd hand Boeings rather than the Airbus.
