I expected a May date. Earlier approval may moot Oberstar's obstruction.

We're going to have to wait for the final Federal approval before we start hearing specifics, Larry and Jeff keep saying that the CO/UA partnership will be much closer than the former partnership with NWA. I'm anxious to get specifics, but I would expect a lot of co locating at airports across the Nation. Hopefully CO will move to airside 3 at MCO , UA has a Red Carpet room there which is sorely needed in Orlando which does a tremendous convention business.

A show-cause order, which the FT suggests will be issued, has a pretty short fuse before becoming final. Unless DL and the travel agents have some new and novel arguments up their sleeves, the fight should be over. Still, you are correct that it's proper protocol for CO to sit on the details until the order is final.

I'm anxious to see how creative they could be, there are some unique services both CO and UA offer that could be mutually beneficial to each other if the alliance is "deep".

If memory serves, Oberstar is from Minnesota (couldn't get on the article, so I'm going from memory). Gee, he isn't running interference for NW/DL?  Silly

Will be interesting to see what happens this summer as CO gets ready to join Star, and get closer to UA. I'm hoping for good things for CO in Star and for CLE as well, although we've always walked the tightrope on the second one here in CLE.

Will this approval come before AA/BA?

Probably, if only because CO et al. applied before AA et al.
