What would be the likelihood of a major buying YX? If so, which one(s) would be most likely to go for it?
Their current fleet would fit into both AA (SP80s & 717s - deja vu w/TWA perhaps?) & NW (if they keep the DC-9-30s around before the hypothetical buyout).
Midwest is loosing tons of money and can't afford to pay for some of their loans. They are on the verge of bankruptcy, IMO. Also, with all the new competition YX is seeing in MKE, they will need to do something about their current situation.
PS - If a major did buy YX, would YX's current FF members get their miles flushed into the buyer's program?
