In reference to the proposed mergers. I think if the twa --aa merger happens, and the us airways/united merger goes through--there will be no competition--such as national/eastern deal in the 70's/80's. Also it will continue with the next big two--delta/continental merger will be next. in the airline business nobody wants to be left behind--lets hope this doesnt happen--to have only the big "3". The aviation industry is truly amazing with so many major carriers--hub and spoke cities, i respect all of you for your great interest and work in this remarkable field.

1) Eastern and National did not merge. In 1980, Pan Am and National merged. (Eastern was raped and pilaged by Continental/Lorezo/TIA in the early 90's)

2) TWA and AA is not a merger, it is more like AA devouring TWA (like Mercedes did to Chrysler; and like that will run them to the ground...)

3) not all mergers work or are needed.
