So, after the cancellation of the LHR route Avianca will only serve Madrid.
Avianca was in a finnacial crisis before the 11/09 so with the world crisis the Avianca's problems are more. So the merger with Aces is necesary!.
Maybe if the merge result the new airline ( I hope that the new airline will call Avianca) could add to Skyteam alliance, because the Sky Team needs a South American carrier.

The plan is for Avianca and aces to still run as two seperate airlines. Aces has made a nice name for themselves in Miami as the "buisness travelers" airline to Caracas, while Avianca is a favourite for "friends and family".
