ok just my thoughts:
America West: Yes good buyout but NOT by US, more likely a 3 way AirTran/TWA/AmWest
USAirways: UALs gonna get em... no doubt here
NW: Staying, might actually take over someone
Continental: Staying, another possible for Cactus (AmericaWest) (FYI Contiental tried to enter the west coast before with dedicated planes marked up as "Continental West")
Alaska: probably staying
TWA: Would like to stay, but needs help...
UAL: Big and gets bigger every day
AA: Runnig good for now out of ORD, but they seem to like to go up and down there so we'll see...
DFW, they "MIGHT"
Hate them for takeing over Reno
Needs more in the Pacific
Delta: Who knows....
Southwest: I can see them taking over ProAir or someone in the mideast, or maybe even buying Metrojet if USAirways sells it to get ok for UAL merger
Other "wild cards": Spirit, no idea
, PanAm 2, go bye bye bankrupt PA2
National, Las Vegas
National, thats all i can say
Frontier, staying just to annoying UAL
Vanguard prolly gone
And just for da heck of it:
AirCanada: Has Canadian now, good luck against Mapleflot
CanJet: WestJet takeover or goodbye...
Royal: Go away PLEASE! DIE!!!! Get taken over! i dont care just go away!!!
Canada 3000: needs smaller planes!
AirTransat: Needs MORE planes
Roots Air: We Shall see
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
