Well, if the AirTran deal happens, what happens to the MDW
ATA Employees? I'm sure that they get the opportunity to apply for employment with the new MDW
AirTran operation, but lose all seniority and any benefits built up over time with ATA. Right? Obviously the new ATA in IND
can't absorb everyone and expect to make any profit.
merger with the entire TZ
operation does somewhat guarantee those jobs and benefits. But there is a likelihood of layoffs due to some right-sizing. And HP
sure could move some of TZ
's higher capacity jets to some HP
routes while moving smaller capacity HP
jet's into TZ
's current routes. Hasn't there been much talk/rumor on this site about HP
acquiring more 757 type capacity?
Either way the Chicago market is a prime market. I haven't heard of either UA
suffering in Chicago due to either TZ
's presence in MDW
AirTran seems like they may have the best financial position to do this, but ATA gets chopped up a bit.
on the other hand keeps ATA relatively whole, but it is kind of uneasy to think of HP
with more debt on the table.
