Shows how desperate BeCA are getting - DAT is the only viable part of the SN group and those senior pilots are determined that if push comes to shove, they want to keep their jobs even if it means that all the DAT guys and gals lose theirs!
Given the way that they have behaved, not very surprising really.
I don't think it would happen - if only because DAT could easily be sold off as it currently stands whereas if it merges with SN then it would be impossible to detach.

Just for arguments sake, here's a 'what if':
What if Croassair does end up as Swiss national carrier (see other thread) picking up the heatlthy bits of Swissair?
Would the same strategy work in Belgium: Sabena goes bankrupt but DAT remains to exist and becomes the new national carrier picking up the more interesting Sabena bits?
Main problem I see is that in Swiss they seem to have the money for it (UBS and Crédit Suisse), whilst for Sabena / DAT there is no money as far as we know.
