NWA/AA Tie-up

Thu May 25, 2000 12:55 pm

So...would an AA/NWA combined company be bigger than UA/US?

There are a lot of drawbacks to AA/NWA:
-Incompatible fleet types
-NWA's old DC-9's
-Heavy midwest presence + AA at Chicago = anti-trust
-Still no big presence for either in the west

The big bonus is AA's access to the pacific with a NWA merger.

All in all, I think UA is the best positioned winner any way you add it up. This thing is gonna play out for over a year!

I believe DL will go after NW, very little route overlap and DL can pickup routes in aisia where DL is weak.Major draw backs are that NW is very unionized and they do have alot of old a/c,(DC-9's,DC-10's) and Airbuses wich DL wants no part of.

DL/NWA does make more sense in my mind. DL doesn't have a strong mid-west presence.
