People, just because United bought out USAirways, doesnt mean every US airline is gonna merge with somebody. I think i have seen every possible airline matched up on this forum.

How do you know! Merging seems to be the best thing to do with the major airlines. If the UA/US merger goes through, they would create a HUGE airline that no other airline could compete alone with.

I don't see how anybody can say its good or bad. We haven't seen a merger that even approaches this in the United States since USAir/Piedmont.

My friends AA is definately talking serious with NW, and that's official. If that's true I can assure you that DL and CO will be back at the table for the second time in 2 years. DL is financially great, even after purchasing ComAIr and ASA. DL has liquid cash!!! Just sit back and watch if UA and US clears the Justice Dept.....

... which is by no means assured. A lot of hard questions will undoubtedly be asked about monopolistic competition, particularly as there will be a danger of a big majority of US markets being dominated by a single carrier. The Justice Department is going to scrutinize this, as well they should.

Panamfanatic, read the article on about the NW-AA deal. The DL-CO deal is outlined in there as well as the future on these mega-megers
