-This is a no brainer. The market cap of any US major airline is quite obviously far more than any startup could possibly dream of acquiring.

-Pan Am is dead. THe new PA is not the REAL Pan Am, it just shares the name. It cannot regain glory, it is gone forever. Even if the new PA acquired your suggestion, AA, the airline would still be American, only with blue and white colors. Employess, attitudes, and corporate culture would not change.
I dont mean to offend anybody, but these posts are a waste of time. What is the point of asking a question that requires only common sense to answer? I am getting tired of having to weed through all of the strings that appear to be more the result of boredom than of true curiosity. Dont get me wrong, uninforrmed questions are fine, nobody knows everything, but this is pushing it.
